Personal Quotes (10)

I'm not really a control person, and I'm a big believer in collaboration. I like to have a friend.
I would like to be known as someone who was really sweet but also knowledgeable in all areas of life.
I thought I would either be an epidemiologist or a 'Price Is Right' model.
I think I've always had a disconnect from what I'm supposed to be like.
I think growing up on a farm in a certain amount of isolation, with not a lot of friends nearby, makes you entertain yourself and kind of grows your imagination - being alone is quite good for all that. You make up stories, talk to the animals, let them be an audience, a bunch of cows.
Sometimes I try to sell shows with a female lead to networks, and that isn't something that's been a proven formula for them, so they reject it. I do feel like men get the funniest roles in movies.
My parents are pretty religious, devout, but did they force it on me? No, I don't think so. I still think of myself as a Lutheran, just one who doesn't go to church.
I would be an actress for the rest of my life just because it's really relaxing. Writing is hard work, and stand-up is so stressful before you get on stage, but acting is a complete ensemble experience.
No one knows who the real me is, so I can be a hundred different kinds of me.
In high school, I was doing a skit for forensics and people started laughing, more than I was prepared to deal with. It was a surprise.
