1(interview on horror.com, on starring in a horror movie following The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning (2006)] I can't imagine topping this. Really. I can't imagine doing like Little House on the Prairie (1974) gone wrong or something. I really think this will be it.
2[interview in Maxim magazine, 2006] I'm aware that people see me as a sex symbol, and it's getting me attention. But I know I can act.
3[interview in Playboy magazine, 2004] It wasn't until in the last year and a half that I started making fun of myself and the fact that I have big boobs. I never really was comfortable with my large breasts. And I went to the plastic surgeon, and almost got a breast reduction. I didn't do it, thankfully.
4[interview in Askmen magazine, 2007] Everybody has a card that says they're a producer. I learned very quickly that if a producer wants to have dinner with me, he doesn't want to cast me, he wants to fuck me. If he wants to call my manager and set up a meeting, then that's another thing.
5[interview in Stuff magazine] Most of the time you're playing the crazy girl or the stripper--always the stripper! I mean, how many strippers can I play? I can do a lap dance phenomenally, and that's not a good sign, because I'm not a stripper.
