When you try to avoid the pain, it creates greater pain.

People who do comedy are always underrated because they make it look so easy.

I went to the Rudolf Steiner School in New York, and you're not allowed to watch TV.

Where would you be without friends? The people to pick you up when you need lifting? We come from homes far from perfect, so you end up almost parent and sibling to your friends - your own chosen family. There's nothing like a really loyal, dependable, good friend. Nothing.

I think it's important to have closure in any relationship that ends - from a romantic relationship to a friendship. You should always have a sense of clarity at the end and know why it began and why it ended. You need that in your life to move cleanly into your next phase.

People laugh at me. Sometimes I know why, and sometimes I don't.

I've always loved to combine different scents to come up with my own unique thing.

I think a good relationship is about collaboration.

I'm just so happy, and I'm grateful for my fans. I just hope I keep doing work that they love.

Marriage brings up all the things I pushed to the back burner - the fears, the mistrust, the doubts, the insecurities. It's like opening Pandora's box.

I don't feel my age. I feel young every day.

I'm a sweats and UGGs girl. Very casual.

Everybody who has ever been snubbed, you know that is very humiliating.

There are no regrets in life, just lessons.

My parents' divorce left me with a lot of sadness and pain and acting, and especially humour, was my way of dealing with all that.

Don't rely on men but don't shun them either.

I would quite like to create a fragrance for men though - something that I like.

I love to read about what my love life is really like.

I think you miss out on a lot of stuff when you're so protected and isolated.

I don't know if I ever really get mad in real life.

Everybody relates to having a dream.

You know, I've got wrinkles on my forehead and smile lines, but what's wrong with that? I love to smile.

I just stay fit and in shape.

The women that inspire me are the ones who have careers and children; why would I want to limit myself? I've always wanted to have children, and I would never give up that experience for a career. I want to have it all.

You know what makes me feel old? When I see girls who are 20-something, or the new crop of actresses, and think, Aren't we kind of the same age?

My father and I are friends and my mother and I don't speak. It's a bummer. I miss her.

The best smell in the world is that man that you love.

We're all with Friends until Friends dies. If one of us goes, we all go. One of us wouldn't leave. It wouldn't be the show it is without each of us.

It's sad, something coming to an end. It cracks you open, in a way - cracks you open to feeling.

The tabloids, instead of being about alien babies and stuff, it's my triplets, quadruplets, marriages, feuds.

Kids are messy!

I love that feeling of being in love, the effect of having butterflies when you wake up in the morning. That is special.

I am pretty controlled I have to say.

'Friends' will always remain friends.

There are many stages of grief.

I'm really happy. Really!

The greater your capacity to love, the greater your capacity to feel the pain.

I've never in my life said I didn't want to have children. I did and I do and I will!

I was told to avoid the business all together because of the rejection. People would say to me, 'Don't you want to have a normal job and a normal family?' I guess that would be good advice for some people, but I wanted to act.

When you accept a role in a pilot, you automatically sign up for five years. You think it's scary to walk down the aisle? Try signing a five-year contract for a show you may not want to be part of down the road.

It gets so boring you know just to do the same thing over and over again.

I love clothes, but I don't know what to put on myself, let alone others. I have a lot of help getting dressed.

I'm a bit of a clothes hoarder, admittedly.

In a man, I look for a friend, someone who's equal, with whom I'm comfortable.

As I get older I realize what qualities are important in love and what suits me. And what I won't settle for.

I love seeing a house and thinking about how it should be redone or restored.

I want to see friends more and travel more.

Yes, I play dress up! I do it for a living, like a retard!

My best hostess tip is to have good food and really good music!
