Quotes

  • "From a very early age, I made my decisions based on careers that I admire. The one thing that all the actresses I love have in common is that they have diversity in their careers."
  • "I'm now convinced that I'm a doctor. I mean, if someone says they have a pain, I'm like, "Well, that's your spleen."
  • "I'm a natural blonde, but I feel like a brunette. I feel like people treat me now how I should be treated. People used to be shocked, when I was blond, that I wasn't stupid."
  • "I think there was no other profession for me. I was either going into an insane asylum or to be an actor."
  • "Inspiration is the key to everything."
  • "Angelina Jolie is my celebrity crush...and I know you all understand."
  • [On having played "Alex on The O.C. and "Thirteen" on House M.D.] "Most times my name is mentioned in any sort of magazine, it has to add, 'known for playing the bisexual.' And now, after House, it'll be, 'known for always playing the bisexual."
  • [On House M.D.] "It's strange to be on this rocket ship of a show that doesn't see itself as being successful. When we hear our ratings every week, I'm like, 'No way. What? 20 million people were not watching TV at the same time."
