I basically read every book ever written about Marilyn Monroe.
I try to live with the idea that karma is a very real thing. So I put out what I want to get back.
I like the bad-boy types. Generally the guy I'm attracted to is the guy in the club with all the tattoos and nail polish. He's usually the lead singer in a punk band and plays guitar. But my serious boyfriends are relatively clean-cut, nice guys. So it's strange.
People expected 'Jennifer's Body' to make so much money. But I was doubtful. The movie is about a man-eating, cannibalistic lesbian cheerleader, and that pretty much eliminates middle America. It's obviously a girl-power movie, but it's also about how scary girls are. Girls can be a nightmare.
I'm not a 'sexy' 'beautiful' woman. It takes a lot of work to make me look like a girl.
I have no friends and I never leave my house.
I didn't get along with Lindsay Lohan on 'Confessions Of A Teenage Drama Queen', but you have to consider that we were 16-year-old girls. I haven't seen Lindsay since then, but I imagine she's grown and become a different person. I know I have.
I'm horrible to live with. I don't clean. My clothes end up wherever I take them off. I forget to flush the toilet.
I don't need someone else's power. I'm obtaining my own.
I resent having to prove that I'm not a retard.
I think that I'm so psychotic and so mentally ill that if I could tap into that I could do something really interesting.
Sarcasm doesn't translate in print at all.
I haven't gone completely insane, but it might happen soon.
When you become a celebrity, the world owns you and your image.
I don't follow fashion. I need people to style me because I'm pretty clueless about it and I don't really care. I pretty much wear the same outfit every day when I'm not working.
Zac Efron is my obsession, we're the same person. We're not actually here, it's like Janet and Michael Jackson. He just puts on his wig and a dress, and it's me, and you don't know that. It's one of the greatest mysteries of all time.
I was raised Catholic. I went to Catholic school for 12 years.
I could see myself in a relationship with a girl; Olivia Wilde is so sexy she makes me want to strangle a mountain ox with my bare hands. She's mesmerizing.
I need to hold onto my soul and my integrity, and I can't compromise that.
I don't make any sense: I'm a germaphobe, but I'm really messy.
In the past, I've been reluctant to share any bits of truth about myself or to really let people in on my reality. So I have said some things to throw people off the scent of what's really going on in my life. So I have sort of aided the media in printing these misconceptions, which I regret.
People who don't like me talk about it as though I'm trash because I have tattoos. I find that insane because it's 2008, not the 1950s. Tattoos aren't limited to sailors. It's a form of art I find beautiful. I love it.
No one believes me when I talk about this, but I'm really, really maternal.
Angelina Jolie was always a Method actress. She'd been nominated for Golden Globes before she ever did 'Tomb Raider.'
I started drawing when I was about 2, mostly pictures of my mother and my sister. When I got into school, instead of taking the notes that I should have been taking, I was drawing in all of my notebooks. It was an artwork thing for me at first.
I'm just really confident sexually, and I think that sort of oozes out of my pores. It's just there. It's something I don't have to turn on.
When you're doing a film, you're on a set and you have retakes and you have time to get it right. And on 'SNL' it's just go, go, go. If you can't read the cue cards or miss your mark, you're just left to sort of screw up. So there's a lot more pressure doing a live TV show.
I love the beach, and I love sunshine.
When I was 14, I thought I was the coolest kid in school because I told everyone the jokes in FHM.
I've never even come close to having a one-night stand.
I'm very confident in how I project my personality.
I'm smart and I can be really funny and interesting and I can go toe-to-toe with anybody in a conversation.
Films don't hold the answers I'm looking for... Would you not be so much more interested in finding out that Bigfoot existed than in watching a really good movie?
I feel people think I'm almost like a robot - like an android... I just don't really get portrayed as someone who has feelings or who is sympathetic... like a self-absorbed ice queen.
I'm not a lesbian. I just think that all humans are born with the ability to be attracted to both sexes.
You want to go to work with people you like and where everyone is having fun.
Sometimes I say things that I think are obviously sarcastic and people take them quite literally.
I'm not a type of feminist who is afraid to be sexy.
I need to behave in a way that will cause people to take me seriously.
Every time someone uses a bathroom and they flush, all the bacteria is shot into the air.
I never call them 'guys;' I always call them 'boys.' Maybe it's a superiority complex - my needing to keep them down.
I hate receiving compliments; I hate being told I'm talented or people think I'm going to be a movie star. I always feel that it's forced and fake.
I'm pretty sure I'm a doppelganger for Alan Alda. I'm a trannie; I'm a man.
My biggest regret is that I've assisted the media in making me into a cartoon character. I don't regret what has happened to me, but I regret the way I have dealt with it.
Hollywood is the most superficial thing you could possibly be a part of and if I weren't attractive I wouldn't be working at all.
My body parts are all I have left now that are only mine - the world owns everything else.
I'm not trying to take Cate Blanchett down.
Because everyone is someone's child, every woman seems like someone's mother.
Boys in their twenties are a waste of time. They have nothing to offer conversationally; they're immature. I feel like I have a better shot with someone in his thirties.
I can cook, but I also want everything to look beautiful on the plate - then I get upset when people eat it. Everyone just tears through it, and that makes me sad. It's not a rewarding experience for me to cook.
I personally always find something really scary about watching little girls learning to manipulate their dads by baby talking. Then they grow up and use the same technique on their boyfriends or husbands. That scares me because it's just so sick on so many levels.
I was grounded for all of my childhood. Not most - all.
I've never been a big believer in formal education.
I'm the biggest nerd - I love comic books and stuff like that! I don't have any friends who are actresses. I only had one girlfriend when I was growing up. Most of my friends were boys. I was such a tomboy. I enjoyed doing guy things.
I feel intimidated by fashion.
When you think about it, we actors are kind of prostitutes. We get paid to feign attraction and love. Other people are paying to watch us kissing someone, touching someone, doing things people in a normal monogamous relationship would never do with anyone who's not their partner. It's really kind of gross.
I could go days, weeks, without talking to another human being.
I have a mouth and I'm not afraid to use it.
Try and stay away from dairy - especially if you're a woman! It's really hard on your hormones.
Well, I'm clearly not ugly.
As soon as you tell me to do one thing, I do the opposite. As soon as someone tells me not to get any more tattoos, I have this intense fire burning inside me to cover myself with them. I don't care if it's self-destructive. I just have that need to rebel.
When you're in something as successful as 'Transformers,' you can't use it as a sales piece for your ability as an actress because it's all about the special effects.
I'm really insecure about everything.
'Danger Girl' can be ridiculous, but sometimes it's funny.
I have to really enjoy someone's personality, not just their looks, before I'll kiss them.
People compare me to Angelina Jolie, and she's so serious and stoic. I'm the opposite.
My mom lived with me until I started making enough money to support myself. I was asking her to leave the entire time. I'd been ready to move out since I was, like, 14.
I've done one movie. And it's not a movie I want to stand on as far as acting ability goes. I mean, I'm not going to win an Oscar anytime soon. I'm not Meryl Streep.
I believe in all of these Irish myths, like leprechauns. Not the pot of gold, not the Lucky Charms leprechauns. But maybe was there something in the traditional sense? I believe that this stuff came from somewhere other than people's imaginations.
I still like the run and gun action movies and how truly dangerous it can be to make these films.
I've read the 'Book of Revelation' a million times. It does not make sense, obviously. It needs to be decoded.
I'm a passionate individual, and sometimes when I have strong feelings about a subject, I feel the need to express myself.
If you're in a heterosexual relationship and you're a female, you win.
I'm self-loathing, introverted, and neurotic.
I've had rough first trimesters. But once you get into the second, it's fine after that.
I have a season pass to several of the VH1 shows, like 'Rock of Love' and Flavor Flav's show. It's kind of embarrassing because it's completely ignorant television - it's all totally fake and garbage - but I still love it.
If I ever lose a role because of my tattoos, I'll quit Hollywood and go to work at Costco.
I always bring cash for tips, and I never give less than $20. I used to work in a smoothie shop, so I know the value of a tip.
I think it's perfectly acceptable not to run with cliques.
Self-loathing doesn't keep me from being happy. But that doesn't mean I don't struggle.
Wonder Woman is lame. She flies around in an invisible jet, but she's not invisible. I don't get it.
To be outspoken, or different at all, is a problem for women.
I don't want to have to be like a Scarlett Johansson - who I have nothing against - but I don't want to have to go on talk shows and pull out every SAT word I've ever learned to prove, like, 'Take me seriously, I am intelligent, I can speak.'
I love comic books. I just do.
I don't read my own press, so I don't know what's being reported on a daily basis - I only hear about things when they reach a sort of Def-Con status, and my publicist calls me because we have to do some damage control.
My dad used to hunt ducks, and my mom would put them in the pot. We lived really modestly. We had very little money.
I'm not a big family person. I'm more of a loner.
I want people to know me through the movies I do. I want to be judged on that. If you start becoming famous for your personal life, that's when your career goes away.
I booked 'Transformers' having no clue what I was doing. And then, all of a sudden, it was like: 'You've got to get your game together fast.' It sucks, but I'm trying.
When I sit down to talk to men's magazines, there's a certain character that I play. She's not fully fleshed out - she doesn't have her own name - but she shows up to do men's-magazine interviews.
I'll starve to death before I'll cook for myself.
I hate going out and being in crowds or being in clubs. I can't deal with it, and I don't like it; I've never liked it.
I'm one of those people who fiercely guards their privacy, so I hate doing interviews.
People just assume that if you're famous, you're in Hollywood.
When I talk about my husband, I feel as if people roll their eyes. It's like when you're 16 and order a martini, and the waiter says, 'Do you think I'm stupid?'. They can't grasp that I'm old enough to be married.
'Midnight Nation' is really interesting.
I have no problem with commitment - you can't have a real relationship without it. I can flip on a switch in my brain, and even if the next Brad Pitt is standing next to me, I won't look at him. But I can also turn that switch off, and then I collect attractive boys.
I've actually stopped tinting my windows because the paparazzi look for trucks and cars with supertinted windows.
I've never really socialized; I've always been anti-social and preferred to be at home. I was never, even my late teens and early twenties, into clubs and parties and stuff like that.
I don't really resent being on the red carpet as much as I do having to deal with the paparazzi.
