On her unpopularity in school:
"I remember just sitting down one day and going, 'I should have friends.' And then I developed a sense of humor. By the end of high school, I would say I was the most popular girl."
On juggling acting and college:
"I just had this belief that I could do it. I watched a lot of 'Oprah,' and Oprah's like, 'If you get a whisper of something, you should believe it.' But this was a full-blown hallucination!"
On her early career woes:
"No one was interested in me. All the roles were for, like, 'Bikini Girl,' age 18. So I thought, I know, I'll write my own characters and then people can see what I can do. "
On her body:
"Sometimes I feel sorry for the actresses who have to be super glamorous in the movies. And then you're sitting there at lunch and never really eat anything. I'd much rather be doing what I'm doing. In comedy, you have to use your physicality as well, and sometimes you get criticism [for that]. But if I had a big nose, I'd always use that, because that's what you have to do."
