1I turned down dates because I dreaded sitting in front of a plateful of food.
2I couldn't be as charming as my mother or as smart as my father. So I decided to be bad.
3I'm no sexual siren. I see prettier girls than me in the grocery store every day.
4[in People magazine, March 3, 1986] Of course I'd like children. But I have to get over my impression that being pregnant is like popping corn. You expand and expand until you pop.
