(About "Sabrina, the Teenage Witch" (1996)) "The show is meaningful to kids and I think it does have a great message. I mean, I wish when I was a kid that I`d been watching a show where women were so clever and so forthright and powerful. I love the way that Sabrina deals with boys. I love the equality in their relationships. We didn`t have that when I was a kid. We didn`t have people like that to look at."

We`re saying women can be powerful, women can live on their own and be strong, women can be smart and pretty, women can be whatever they want to be. That`s a really important message. I love the way Sabrina talks to boys. I mean nobody told me you could tell boys you weren`t interested! It was hard when I was a kid to find role models that were free and exciting and offered this type of latitude.

Examining other people`s motivations, other people`s language and other people`s way of interacting is much more fascinating to me than spending a lot of time worrying about my own. I`ve said, What other people think of me is none of my business.""
There`s a lot more to being a woman than being 18-years old on the cover of Maxim magazine.
