“I’ve had four boyfriends in my whole life. I’ve never been with anyone that’s not a boyfriend. If I spend time with a man, it’s because there’s somebody that I know well who has been a friend for a while.”
“I obviously have plenty of imperfections on my body, but I’d rather have a little bit of cellulite and go do a food trip and try every ice cream place in the South.”
“My mom is my biggest beauty and style icon – my sisters too. She’s so elegant and so fun and so bohemian. She does everything with such child-like wonderment. She’s somebody that’s so beautiful because she’s so kind to everyone. She always goes out of her way to tell people they look nice. I think that’s so beautiful – she’s a good woman, a good icon.”
“People think I’m goofy, I don’t have that whole Angelina Jolie air to me. I wish that I did, and that’s an insecurity of mine. Some days, I wake up, and I’m like ‘Oh, I look good to day!’ And some days, I wake up and feel like I look like a tranny.”
