Without comedy as a defense mechanism I wouldn't be able to survive.
Carol Burnett was particularly funny. She swore for the first time on television on Larry Sanders.

I think I look great in green, and I'm going to start wearing more green.
I am pretty tenacious as a perfectionist in terms of getting something right.
I don't talk about my hair anymore because I've matured. I matured and realized it doesn't matter what you look like. It's what kind of hair you have inside that counts.
Here's the thing - I'm single, I haven't been married, I don't have kids yet. If I do have kids I would be interested to see them in my life, so here's a movie for kids and I'm in there and I'm supposed to be kind of funny for kids.
