  • To be beautiful in Texas, you had to be blonde and blue-eyed and have a name like Ann.
  • I know it sounds weird, but my definition of ‘sexy’ has changed as I’ve gotten older. And being smart and informed makes me feel sexier than any outfit.
  • Right when I finish a workout, I feel pretty sexy. Even though I’m sweaty and I don’t smell like a rose, I feel strong. It does a lot for me mentally and physically.
  • When I was in my early 20s, I looked towards exterior things to make me feel sexy – guys, clothes, shoes, etc. Now it’s all about how I feel internally.
  • You know, I never really paid attention to sports, which, coming from the mecca of football in Texas, is kind of odd. I played sports, but I was nerdy. Having a single mother, the pressure was on me to get good grades and a scholarship and go to college.

  • Studied opera.
  • When she randomly auditioned and got the part of Carmen de la Pica Morales on The L Word (2004), she wasn’t sure that she wanted it because of the character being a lesbian and having to partake in various make-out/lovemaking scenes with other women, but she now considers it her dream role and also ranks it among her best work.
  • Moved to Los Angeles in 2000.
  • The great-great-granddaughter of a 19th century Persian Shah, Fath Ali Shah Qajar by Begom Khanom (daughter of Hossein Qoli Khan Afshar, niece of Begom Khanom, daughter of Emam Qoli Khan Afshar), through their son Jahansouz Shah.
