The girls on the show are like a rat pack. People don't believe us when we say that, but that's one of the joys of the show for me.
Sex can still be great, even without an orgasm.
I love animals and I love to see movies with animals that are done respectfully, you know?
I'm just happy when people want me to work for them.
I think I can speak for all four of us on the show here. We all consider ourselves to be feminists and we get very upset when people don't think we are. We're like, where did this come from? Of course we are.
I'm a hard-core Prada addict. I can't think of a time I've entered a Prada store and not bought something.
I love theater.
Every child that I've worked with so far has been so professional and not at all the kind of difficult, cliched stories that you would hear.
I'd wanted to be an actress my whole life, that was my goal, that was all I cared about.
(On her character, Brooke, on "Melrose Place" (1992)): Oh my God, it was awful! One time I was in a department store and, as I was walking around, I could hear women whispering: "There's Brooke - that bitch!" I wanted to scream: "I'm not Brooke, I just play her on TV!"
If I'm walking very, very fast down Madison Avenue in the middle of the day, I'll say I'm stopped 10 times.
I just loved being in the theatre with all those crazy, creative people.
I've been dating since I was fifteen. I'm exhausted. Where is he?
Where I come from, a lot of people didn't have money, but they didn't have gangs or drugs either.
I am definitely not a fashionista. I can't live up to that title, I don't want to. Also, I think fashion can have a very negative impact on young people who feel they have to be thin. A lot of young actresses are really unhealthy. It didn't happen to me when I was younger because I grew up in South Carolina in a very secure environment.
I also like men who like dogs. I couldn't date a man who doesn't like my dog.
(On her character, Charlotte, from "Sex and the City" (1998)): She's really, very funny. I would never describe Charlotte as a prude. Maybe at the start, but that was in comparison to the other girls. She wasn't willing to do the stuff they were doing and I mean, thank goodness! I think she has some themes, like wanting security, that many women relate to. That's what's so great about our show, plus it shows the different choices that women have.
(On motherhood): I'm open. Adoption is wonderful. I think there are many different ways to do it. I'm an only child, so it's hard to picture the whole multi-child situation. Cynthia has two children and it is unbelievable the amount of work involved. I have the most respect for it in the world, but I'm not sure if I'm cut out for it.
(On her childhood in South Carolina): We were very rich, culturally. One Sunday each month, we would do this thing called Chamber Pots at somebody's house. A classical music group would come over and we'd have dinner. There were thirty people (parents and kids) and we'd sit on the floor and listen to this beautiful music. I never appreciated it until I was grown up and realized how lucky I was to be exposed to so much, so young.
Let's just say that I don't think our show has very much in common with the book any more.
Also, it was a cultural moment that wasn't being represented in terms of women who were successful and had choices they didn't have before. They needed a show that they can watch that they felt like represented them.
I like green or brown eyes. Tall but not overwhelmingly so. I like men who do yoga and meditate.
At one point, they offered me this part to play a drug-dealing, gun-selling butch lady. I don't know how to describe her but she had like a crew cut and stuff. I was like, "Is this a joke?" And they said, "No, we think it would be great because everyone would be like, "Oh, look at what we've done to Charlotte."" I was like, "Well I can't do that!"
Everyone would talk about their diets and working out and what it made me do was go to craft services where all the food for the cast and crew was and I would eat.
