I wasn't brought up with money. I don't think I'd spend more than $150 on a shirt [Also] I'm almost O.C.D. You will never find a piece of clothing on my floor. I can't relax if I'm sitting in a mess.
[re identity of her son's father] That's my son's business. It's not the public's business...Women should have lots of secrets. It's our right to have secrets.
[on moving to New York] I was excited to be independent, but I was also naive--I just wanted to be rich and famous. I lived in an apartment near the Empire State Building. There were a billion girls in New York City who wanted to be models. After a while I was immune to rejection, which helped when I went out to L.A. to become an actress. In modeling, the criteria is purely aesthetic. So when I got to L.A., I didn't care if they said I was too small, too blonde, too pretty, or not pretty enough.
[on her Mad Men (2007) character]: I don't judge Betty or necessarily understand her. The audience is passionate about her. After season one they wanted her to speak out against Don and his infidelities. Then in season two, when she did, there was a huge reaction against Betty. They want her to talk - just not too much.
I feel as though my career really hit its high point when I was cast as a supporting actress in American Wedding (2003). I thought the script had a lot of depth and intelligence, and it really just jumped off the page.
I was in lingerie on a trampoline and I had to jump into the air for eight hours. My legs were starting to buckle.
