  • “I was just like a pathological liar when I was a kid. I think (...) I just wanted to one-up somebody. Somebody would be like, ‘Oh, God, my legs hurt.’ I’d be like, ‘Your legs hurt? I’m getting mine amputated next week.’ And that’s actually how my mother found out. She came to school and somebody was like, ‘God, that’s such a shame about Jennifer’s legs.’ She made me purge. (...) I had to spill out all of my lies. I was like, ‘I said that Dad drove a barge, and we were millionaires, and you were pregnant, I had to get my legs amputated, and I spayed cats and dogs on the weekends.’ Now I can’t lie. Now I get anxiety over it. (Dave asks if she was insecure) I think I just love stories, Dave. I don’t think I was insecure!”

But I always knew that I was going to be famous. I honest to God don’t know how else to describe it. I used to lie in bed and wonder, Am I going to be a local TV person?

  • Yesterday I had to do an interview. I was in a horrible mood. I couldn't think of basic words. I could see my publicist in the background, mouthing things to say. They want you to be likable all the time, and I'm just not.
  • I grew up in Kentucky—not skinning squirrels...actually, I have skinned a squirrel before. I can't even say that. I was like, 'Jennifer, you've even eaten squirrel chili!'

  • It doesn't matter how much money I make, unfairness in prices really fires me up. Like shopping in L.A and a T-shirt costs $150.
  • In Hollywood, I'm obese. I'm considered a fat actress. I eat like a caveman. I'll be the only actress that doesn't have anorexia rumors! I'm never going to starve myself for a part.

  • (on auditions and meetings) - The miserable ones are the ones where all the girls auditioning are in the same room. There's no talking in those rooms. I've tried.

I didn't wash my hair for a week, I had no makeup on. I looked beat up in there. I think I had icicles hanging from my eyebrows.
