1His wink
1[Prior to joining the cast in Spamalot]: I really couldn't have asked for a more wonderful group of people to work with. Let's not lie, the chance to work with legendary creative minds like Mike Nichols and Eric Idle is, on its own, a reason to jump at this opportunity.
2[In 2009]: Every year the models do an acting challenge, and since I had been in Spamalot and was doing the Broadway thing, Tyra Banks, [the show's host] called and wanted me to be a part of it, I did a scene with some of the girls and then later on tried to help judge that scene.
3[on being the Ambassador for the Children's Agency]: The situation in Chiapas and Tabasco has really become a forgotten emergency. Telling the story of these brave people, especially the children, to a U.S. audience is the reason that I am here. Sharing this experience with my family during this time of year makes it even more special.
4I left Raleigh six months ago, and nobody knew who I was. It's very hard to get used to.
5I'm religious. I think this is something God had planned for me.
6American celebrities have an amazing amount of influence on the way America thinks, feels, and acts. I think that such an influence should be used in the most positive way possible.
7I think there's a difference between appearance and image. An image is not how you look. It's what you do. It's what you portray. Your personality, the example you set, and that's huge for me.
8I'm never really comfortable with people cheering for me.
9It doesn't really matter to me how I make a difference, I just wanna make sure that I do.
