Personal Quotes
"I put a very high premium on honesty. What I learned from [my father's] death is that if you don't accept your sexuality, it ill kill you." -- Cosmopolitan magazine, May 1997
I'm always honest, whether I'm in the limelight or not.
I've always kind of gone with my heart.
And as a child, we have such a wonderful thing as children, that we can just make the best of everything, and say, Well, this must be what everybody else is experiencing, and I've got to make the best of it. You don't know that it's not good until you witness something that it seems better.
Are we changing the idea of what beauty is? Let's hope so. I'm not the typical Hollywood beauty. Let's hope we're looking at the insides of people a little more.
It's my job, to create a fantasy.
We do not fall in love with the package of the person, we fall in love with the inside of a person.
It's important to talk about loving yourself and looking at your tragedies and the stuff that makes you grow.
