I want to be healthy.

I think there's so many points of view that you want to make sure your stories are being told from men and women... you get all of the different backgrounds. You don't want every story being told from the same point of view. So just for better storytelling, I'm like, 'Yes, please, bring some more ladies on.'

Strangers shouldn't be allowed to take a picture of your child and sell it for profit.

I didn't really know how to write jokes, so I just told weird, long stories about being tall and beautiful and wealthy in New York. I'd tell them very seriously, but I kind of looked like a drag queen at the time with big wigs and crazy 12-inch platform heels.

Everybody's a train wreck in their own very special way. But there's something wildly freeing about someone who's unapologetic, who knows they're a wreck and doesn't even try to hide it, just bulldozes through life.

Once you start writing a character visually, you're in trouble.

I wore white kabuki makeup, had blue-black hair. At one point, I shaved an inch and a half around my hairline and continued the white makeup up so it made my head look slightly deformed. I thought it was hilarious.

The average size of a woman is 14.

I do think comedy needs to be a living thing, but I think without a great script and fully realized characters, you cannot keep it living. Otherwise, it just becomes long and rambling, indulgent. So I think you need both, frankly.

I've been trying to play old-lady parts since I was in my 20s, so I look forward to all of that.

In a lot of comedies, they kind of take all the problems away from the women. They give her great clothes, great hair; she almost always owns an artisanal shop, like a cheese shop in Manhattan.

I'm really happy in my life.

I've watched women being hideously unattractive, personality-wise and physically, all the time. But these women never end up on screen.

I didn't wear jeans for, like, a decade of my life.

I lived on a farm in Illinois, and we didn't have a lot of money. But I lived vicariously through magazines. I was obsessed with Jean Paul Gaultier. I still have the scrapbooks, and I've kept all my designs and sketches.

Part of being young is you think gaining 6 lbs. is the end of the world.

I'm like a three-and-a-half, four-hour-a-night sleeper. It's not enough to function.

We have some of the most rock-solid, lovely friends in the world.

I could eat healthier; I could drink less.

I've never felt like I needed to change. I've always thought, 'If you want somebody different, pick somebody else.' But sure, criticism can sometimes still get to me. Some things are so malicious, they knock the wind out of you.

My back was just destroyed after pregnancy. I almost had to have surgery, until I did Pilates and rebuilt my body.

I went to school for clothing and textiles and thought this is what I was going to do. Then I started working in costumes and literally said, 'I don't know if I can take the actors.'

I'm always tinkering with something - suddenly I'll think I can work with wood, but then I'll realize I can't, so I go back to sewing.

I have caught my reflection and thought, 'Oof. That girl is struggling. That girl is tired.' I've had mornings where I'm like, 'Oh God, I have weird hair.'

I was never sullen. I was a terrible punk - I was still so chatty.

Somebody ripped their pants open at my wedding, dipping my mother. My mother is not a lady who throws herself into a dip that often, so I don't think he thought she was really going to do it.

I did not actually run down a deer for 'Tammy,' I promise.

I make a mean coconut macaroon.

Funny is funny, and it can come in 8 billion different shades and flavors, so I think it's silly to kind of limit it.

Famous doesn't mean anything. Just because people know my face doesn't mean they know us or that it makes us any more interesting or better.

I just think that wigs and makeup and costumes completely transform me.

I was only a bridesmaid for my sister, and it was very calm and small, so I didn't have any tragedy.

I am not a princess, I don't want to be referred to as a princess - I find that super creepy.

I refuse to give energy to the negative. I've got a great fella and two great little girls.

I don't know any neighborhoods where everyone's walking around in seven-inch heels and perfect makeup.

We're a weird bunch at 'Mike & Molly.' We go to work, and we're crazy about each other, and we love where we go to work.

I feel like I got hit with a lucky stick.

I want pockets in my dresses. I put pockets in everything! I want pockets inside my pockets.

I'm not a crazy germophobe; I have kids, and that ship has sailed.

I just don't lose weight easily.

I just think we tear down women in this country for all these superficial reasons, and women are so great and strong.

I love a woman who's solid in her shoes.

I think everything that any actor does, I would assume, is shaped by how and where they grew up.

I don't sleep, but I've got two little kids that don't sleep, either.

I think there are people who really love the comfort of their small town, and there are people who feel stuck by it.

Comedy to me is all about the bumps and bruises and weird tics.

I've never been interested in playing the boring ingenue.

I don't really know why I'm not thinner than I am.

Some days, I want to be prim and proper, and others, I want to be in a band.
