Quotes

#Quote
1With TV, you get on a show and you're there for 11 years playing the same character. I would pull my hair out. Yes, the money is good. But I'm really not in this business to chase dollars.
2I would love to do a biopic of a famous singer, like Diana Ross or Donna Summer, or an old jazz story that we haven't seen before. I would love to do that! I would love to play Diana Ross 'cause she's an icon. I'm salivating to do that.
3I don't think a living being should suffer for the sake of fashion, period. End of story. You don't have to kill an animal just because you want to be hot and fly. And I really stand by that.
4When I come home, it's about my kid, who needs to eat, needs to do homework, and needs to get to basketball. I don't have a lot of time to think about me.
5With TV, the pace is so fast, the scripts are coming at you, the directors are firing things at you, it's breathtaking.
6Something happens to a woman when she can't reproduce. I've not had to walk that path, but I can only imagine when your organs don't work and how that could make you feel.
7Well, for one, I don't judge my characters.
8Most men are fragile.
9Oftentimes, when you have a huge studio film and you have big names attached, they like to keep attaching big names.
10The best thing about being in New York is the people, and you get to walk everywhere.
11Singing is something I can do, but it's not my first passion.
12I'm not interested in disposable music.
13I'm not a selfish actor. I believe that it's a team effort. You're not in a scene by yourself.
14I've been doing a lot of drama, but I feel like comedy is my strength.
15If I were to meet the most incredible man, and he just so happened to not make as much money as I do, I wouldn't hold it against him.
16I'm always interested in challenging myself and pushing and seeing how far I can go.
17I'm a character actor.
18I love the art of acting, so I don't care if I'm in a movie with 10 people, two people, or by myself. I just really enjoy it.
19I love New York. Love it.
20I prefer doing feature films.
21I'm always confident when I sign up for a project that it's going to be good. That's why I sign up for it.
22I love children.
23I just like when I work with people that are professional and good.
24Acting for me is very therapeutic. It's my shrink.
25I don't care if you're a man, if you're a player: If God sends you that one and your heart is in it, you'll work it out.
26I like to be home with my son, kickin' it and watching ESPN, a very normal life. I like to take him to school every day, watch his games.
27I'm really silly. That's the thing that people don't get.
28I don't ever want to feel complacent.
29I don't ever want to get boxed in, playing the same characters, over and over again. That's why I prefer features over television.
30I like to disappear in my roles because I don't have an assistant.
31A lot of times characters are combinations of people I come across in life. I people-watch a lot.
32Date a woman with children only if you are ready to man up, because it's a position that comes with responsibility.
33I'm a creative person, so I have to stay busy.
34I'm nothing without God.
35I feel like we all have our skeletons.
36I would love to play a superhero. I wish I could be in 'The Avengers,' kicking butt.
37A woman is gentle, soft, delicate, and a man's position is to protect her, help her up stairs, make sure she's in the car safely first. Take good care of your woman, and the sky's the limit!
38It's up to you to be responsible for how you feel if you're not happy. Your happiness lies in your hands. You can't rely on a man to make you happy or complete you. That starts with you.
39I don't harp on the negative because if you do, then there's no progression. There's no forward movement. You got to always look on the bright side of things, and we are in control. Like, you have control over the choices you make.
40When I meet a person and that chemistry is there, I cannot hide the electricity. I need to learn more about him, and once I feel safe, I'm gone, I'm in love, and I give it my all!
41I'm always the cousin that can't make it to the family functions because I'm busy.
42Love is the greatest gift that God has given us. It's free.
43At the end of the day, I stand by who I am. I'm a good person.
44Humans have a light side and a dark side, and it's up to us to choose which way we're going to live our lives. Even if you start out on the dark side, it doesn't mean you have to continue your journey that way. You always have time to turn it around.
45Every human walks around with a certain kind of sadness. They may not wear it on their sleeves, but it's there if you look deep.
46Once you're a mom, always a mom. It's like riding a bike, you never forget.
