I think when you're doing a lead role, there is so much more pressure. If you fail, not only do you fail, but everybody else fails, too. As opposed to when it's a supporting role and it's only you that sucked.
(Talking about getting her ears pierced in 2006) It didn't hurt like I thought it would, but it still feels a bit weird - And I'm still getting used to the thought that I've now got bits of metal going through holes in my earlobes that weren't there when I woke up this morning, but I guess I'll get used to that...
I love earrings - I think they really finish off an outfit. And now my ears are pierced, I've got so much more choice in earrings than I did with clip-ons. The only problem is that I love really big and bold earrings and, after I've had them in for a while, the weight really starts to pull on my lobes and I have to take them out so that the holes in them don't start to turn into little slits. I really hate seeing that on other women, and definitely don't want it to happen to me too... But yeah, I do love earrings, and I'm so glad I finally took the plunge and had my ears pierced.
I guess 26 is kind of old to lose your virginity, but it was important to me that I remained a virgin until after I was married. It wasn't for any religious reasons or anything like that, but simply because, to me, my virginity was the most precious gift that I could ever give to a man, and I wanted to be sure I was giving it to the right man.
(On giving up smoking) When I went to audition for 88 Minutes, I had worked with that director Jon before and I was smoking a cigarette and he said 'You really shouldn't smoke' and I said 'Give me the part and I'll quit'. And I didn't hear anything from him for a while and then he gave me the part, so I quit. But I didn't tell him 'til after we were done filming the movie that I had quit.
I just can't believe I'm a mom. It's weird! You look at your own mom differently. I realized, 'You changed all my diapers? You did that?' You really appreciate your mom.
(On getting all of the facial and ear piercings for her role in My First Mister) I spent well over an hour in a tattoo and piercing parlour getting them all done. The guy who did them was amazing, although he was really surprised that I was having all of these piercings done, yet I'd never even had my earlobes pierced and wasn't having them done as well. He said he could do them for me too, but I told him that I couldn't, because Jennifer doesn't have her's done either – Although I was tempted. So he did my eyebrows first, then both sides of my nose, then my lip, then the ones in the tops of my ears, and finally my navel. I thought that my lip would be the most painful one, but it was actually the ones in my ears that hurt the most. I was really nervous before he started doing them, and it felt so strange to have someone sticking needles through parts of my body and feeling the jewelry there. But, after it was done, I kind of liked how it all looked and, as time went by, I got used to having it all there. After we'd finished filming, I took most of it out, although I did think that the nose stud and navel piercing looked kind of cool, so I kept them for a couple of weeks more before I took them out.
