On her husband: '''I told him he was too tall to be a ballet dancer and I asked if he was gay. At first he seemed too young, but then I looked into his eyes and it was like, 'Whoa!' ''
On getting married: "One has to be open-minded when the right man comes along. And I know it's freaky, but this just seems like the natural thing to do. My friends didn't even say to me, 'So soon?' I think that's because they're so relieved.''
