Personal Quotes (7)

Doing love scenes is always awkward. I mean, it's just not a normal thing to go to work and lay in bed with your co-worker.
I found out early I could make more money modeling than I could waitressing and scooping Häagen-Dazs. But I always wanted to be an actress.
I'm spontaneous. I love going from one thing to something else and not knowing what I'm going to do next.
As a mom, I can't imagine how hard it would be to hear hurtful things, untrue things being said about my daughters.
Everyone says I'm exploiting the kids, but they haven't even seen one episode.
[on having her young daughters on her television program] I'm in a no-win situation. If I have my kids on the show, I'm exploiting them. If I don't, people will think I'm not a hands-on mom.
[on her ex-husband Charlie Sheen] I didn't go into this marriage with the idea of just trying it out. I fell in love and wanted to make a new life with him. A lot of people said to me, "How could you go out with someone with his past?". But I've always believe that everyone deserves a second chance. I fell in love with who he was when I met him: a strong man who could admit his weaknesses and work through them.
