#Quote
1I feel like people who tend to be divas are the ones who are actually not quite on top. What I've noticed about celebrities is, if they are really successful, they're more down-to-earth. And, if they're so close but they're not quite there yet or their dreams haven't quite come true, they're like mid-level, they are out of control. It's like they have something to prove.
2[on her Anger Management (2012) co-star Charlie Sheen] I genuinely do care about Charlie. One of the things that has gotten him in trouble but probably the most endearing thing about him is he is the most honest person I have ever met, and when someone is that honest they're going to piss somebody off.
