1 [on her role as "Pam" on True Blood (2008)] I don't know if it's a bad sign or if I'm becoming delusional, but I don't know if she's good or evil. She's definitely correct. I feel like what she says we're all thinking: you know, she only kills bad people. I feel like she's a little bit of the person we all wish we could be, but wouldn't be able to maintain jobs and friends.
2 The other day I realized as long as I'm in this business, I'm going to be hungry. The camera really does add 10 pounds. I'm trying to stay under the weight I want to look like on TV. It's a good incentive to stay slim and is probably adding years to my life. (PopEater.com, 9 August 2010)
