I always like hair being a little messy because I think there's something appealing about the whimsy of putting on a gown with any hair or make-up - just stepping into it, and you're ready.

I could probably make more money if I did more commercial projects.

Wanting to be an actor and wanting to be famous are different.

I've kissed just three people in my life, other than stuff that I've done for TV or movies. I know - I'm weird!

I want to get involved in causes I believe in, and I know so many others that want to also get involved, but it's hard to know how. Often, it's through big organisations, and you don't know exactly where your money is going or what effect you are having.

I kind of feel like I grew up at Disneyland.

When I say something funny, I don't laugh.

I don't know; I don't really look at pictures of me when I'm in public.

Creating something I can use is the best stress reliever.

The Gucci woman can be the equestrian woman, the woman in the suit, the woman in the flowy bohemian dress, or the couture woman.

I really don't like the gym. I like experiences, so I take any chance I get to go on a bicycle or on a hike.

I'm guilty of going to a fitting, then going out to buy the same outfit. It's been a problem for my bank account!

If I could spit out a litter of kids, I would.

I've always been a night owl.

I take a cooking class everywhere I travel. I find it's the best way to get to know a culture.

The only time I really go on the Internet is for recipes.

I can read a four-page scene once and have it memorized. It's a skill you learn in school: disposable cramming.

I can't believe we're being paid to live in New York.

I don't really know how to describe my personal style.

It's definitely attractive when a man can dress well.

When I'm playing a character, I don't wear perfume.

I'm so used to being within 10 minutes of my family.

My mom would have different fragrances for different times of the year. They were a part of her identity. I don't remember the specific ones she used, but I remember the bottles.

I love to photograph the gorgeous landscapes when I travel.

I don't watch TV.

My anonymity is something I treasure.

When I moved to New York, I started switching fragrances. Between different seasons I would change fragrance, or if I was going out for a big fancy night versus going out in the daytime. But I also found that I was changing and growing so much.

I have smuggled so many ingredients across so many borders, like shallot confit from Thailand, or a new sauce from New Orleans not approved by the FDA.

I'd rather be by myself than be spending any time or energy on somebody that I didn't feel sure about.

I've been so lucky to work with such great people: people that are such hard workers and have such a respect and appreciation for one another.

There are looks that I see on other people that I think would look horrible on me, but I think if somebody has the courage to be really daring and try something outlandish, then more power to them. That's just encouraging and inspiring.

I was class president, on the cheerleading squad, in a competitive show choir, and in, like, six different clubs.

There are lots of actresses I consider to be my icons, from Katharine Hepburn and Grace Kelly to Diane Keaton and Meryl Streep.

Often you see people on the red carpet with tight up-dos, but that makes me feel stiff.

I came from a big family - two brothers and two sisters. So, there were always a ton of boys around and a ton of girls around. So, I grew up comfortable with both sexes.

I tend to like to make my statements more in fashion than in beauty, because what I normally respond to is when someone looks really effortless and deconstructed, beauty-wise, and they're fashion is really grand. Someone like Kate Moss is a great example.

My mom modeled and made clothes, so I always had such an appreciation for design.

My family is probably too involved in my life because they are my best friends, but I love that.

The smell of pine needles, spruce and the smell of a Christmas tree - those to me, are the scents of the holidays.

There are days when I will be like, 'Oh my goodness, I am not happy with the way I look because I cannot fit into any of my clothes.' So I eat quinoa that week, and then I feel good.

I always appreciated the magnitude of my mother's imagination. She always saw beauty in what was broken, and she'd preserve it.

I first started wearing fragrance when I was thirteen or fourteen, and the smell was candy-like. They were in very colorful bottles, like turquoise and pink. By the time I was sixteen or seventeen, it got more girly and more floral.

I always loved fashion.

I always want to wear clothes that my children will one day look back on and say, 'Oh, you looked amazing - why didn't you keep that?' Not, 'Oh my God - I can't believe you wore that.'

Martha Stewart's my idol.

I was in a show choir. I can't sing or dance to save my life, but I was very passionate. People said my parents paid the choir director to let me in. It was actually the parents who started that one!

Ngila Dixon is such an incredible costume designer. She's such a cool, stylish woman. She has such an understanding of character.

My mom taught me this really great beauty tip. She used to put oil or mayonnaise on the bottom half of her hair before she would shower.

My dream as a passionate cook has been to go to Le Cordon Bleu. Never could my most incredible dream have lived up to the experience. The food, the lesson, the chef, the ingredients - all the best of the best. I see why Le Cordon Bleu is world-renowned.
