1 [2007] I'm not into vilifying L.A., like "Everyone is so dumb, everyone has fake boobs . . . " It's just not true. There are a lot of really smart, fascinating people there. I'm a New Yorker who loves L.A.
2 And I also definitely love glamor. I mean, I love getting dressed up, and having someone do my make-up and feeling pretty. I'm not gonna lie about that, cause that's part of what I love about what I do. But celebrity, it's like the feeling of going to the prom, the adolescent feeling of popularity. As an actor, my main focus is finding good writing and attacking a good role. I mean, I understand when you're incredibly famous that it becomes difficult to deal with the publicity aspect. But people who are like me, who go, "Oh, I'm not gonna do that. I'm just here for the work!" I find it to be a little pretentious, honestly. Cause you're not that famous. Calm down.
