Memorable Quotes:

I’m the last person to ask about dealing with stress. I’m always the biggest stress ball. But I don’t stop moving and I never let my Blackberry leave my hand, so I’m getting a lot of thumb exercise. It’s great.

It’s super fun to play the bad girl. I love bringing out the inner nasty . . . Every woman secretly has an inner bitch deep down inside–including myself. But with the scenarios that Georgina is in and the lines from the script, the evil naturally comes out and flows really well for me . . . I don’t take the nastiness off-set, but sometimes when the paparazzi get in my face, Georgina comes out.
