"I felt different born into a family with two sisters who are blonde and blue-eyed, with me being the only brunette". In an interview to People Weekly magazine, July 31, 2000. Volume 54, Number 5.
I would rather not work than play in a movie that nobody watches.
We've always been ready for female superheroes. Because women want to be them and men want to do them.
I don't want to be exploited. That of course, as an actress, is a real challenge, not to be exploited. So I'm just going to keep looking for as many different types of roles as I can find in different genre movies. That's my goal, my aim. I like doing that. I've had a pretty varied career so far."
I don't even like talking about dating. It's like having a stamp on your forehead: 'I'm available and I'm looking'.
I think acting is just like that. There is something childish and fun about it.
"I love darkness. I am attracted to the dark side of life! I thought it was really interesting that Jean Grey went through some changes in this film." - About her character's change in X2 (2003) (aka X-Men United)
Looking back, boy, has there ever been a stigma in being a Bond Girl. That's what my mission in life is, just to prove them wrong. That's why I have such an urge to keep going and proving that. It's so silly. What on earth does the way you look have anything to do with whether you can act or not.
I'm a firm believer in taking risks in life, because you'll never get anywhere unless you do, and the more risk involved the greater the outcome - or the worse, but you never know so you've got to go for it.
As long as corruption exists, human trafficking will likely flourish I'd like to give something back on an issue that matters to me.
I love the first two X-Men movies because I thought that Bryan Singer did such a great job. He elevated that whole genre. He's a very talented director.
I know Dark Phoenix is a huge part of the X-Men saga, so I'm assuming they're at least going to want to touch on it, but I don't know and I don't know whether I would want to be involved. That depends on many different things.
Triple tonguing? It was sort of invented. It wasn't in the script. It was something that I came up with.
I want to work with great directors. I want to work on good material with good actors. I've probably done 20 movies at this point and a lot of independents. It's been an incredible ride and I love it and I'm just going to keep going and doing what I'm doing.
Everybody gets typecast in movies, but you have to make wise choices. I'd say around 90 percent of movie casting is about the way you look, so you have to fight that. If producers had their way, I'd only be in action films, but I'm interested in a more varied career than that.
