Sometimes people play hard to get to know that the other person`s feelings are real
I`ve always been the long-term relationship, go-home-and-meet-mom girl.
Working with ex-husband, Chad Michael Murray: my job is my job, and my personal life is my personal life, and I keep them separate. It`s my job. It`s not always easy, but it`s my work - it`s what I love and take pride in, and I won`t let that slack because of personal circumstances.
Getting wasted is only OK when you`re young enough to not know better.
People care about my personal life. But really I`m dorky! I drink beer and go to football games. And ya know, sit in my house in a t-shirt on the weekends and play with my dog!
I think what`s exceptional about that is typically in the sociology of our culture, we`re so used to those gender roles of the women being supported and it`s wonderful when you see that that`s really not how it is. Because sorry to say, women run the house. They run the family. They hold things up. I mean, it`s like you don`t ever see your mom get sick because she handles everything. And it`s kind of amazing I think to show people just how strong women are. And people enjoy it. And I think people want to see women that reflect women in their lives that they know now. (In reference to the portrayal of strong women in cinema)
"Samaire (Armstrong) and I spent a lot of time shopping together and just running around town. She`s such a great girl. She`s an artist and has a really creative mind. I loved it when they sent me the Stay Alive (2006) script. Mc G called and said `listen, read this role and tell me what you think`. She`s so different from anybody I`ve gotten to play which was what drew me to it. Aside from the fact that the script is great, original and creepy as hell, the character is very, very cool. She`s such a bad ass. She`s a rough around the edge girl and fits into this sect that is of New Orleans".
I want to play everything. I really want to do it all.
I get to experiment with a lot of looks with my character so that`s really fun for me. It`s like getting to paint a new canvas everyday.
I`ve turned into a total insomniac. Chad will wake up for a 4 a.m. snack, and I will have completely redecorated a room in our house!
I love boxing. There`s something fierce about using your body`s force that way.
(On starring with her husband on "One Tree Hill" (2003)) "People say `Oh, it must be so nice being able to kiss your own husband on the show`, but really, it`s not. It`s so awkward being intimate with your husband with hundreds of people watching and a camera present".
