Quote of the Day

My brother's a grip. My mom's a scriptwriter. My dad's a director. So it's like, at heart, I'm a below-the-line girl.
I just wanted to be who I was, which was like so many other girls I knew. We grew up in the city, had a hard edge and obstacles to overcome, but we were still young and beautiful. I didn't want to be all dressed up, all made up - I wanted to be myself, which hadn't been done before.
The Hollywood lifestyle was just overwhelming. A party here, an interview there, magazine and modeling shoots daily, your face everywhere and girls throwing themselves at you. As great as it felt at the time, I still felt something missing, and that I needed to change.
I was the youngest and only girl in a family of two older brothers.
I think girls like vampires because they are mysterious and they really don't know what they are about. I think a lot of girls are attracted to that.
I've never been a boyfriend kind of girl.
I think every single girl has something different and special about her. You find one who clicks with your vibe.
I like American women. They do things sexually Russian girls never dream of doing - like showering.
I think every cute girl is told to move to L.A. someday. So I do like the drive over from my house to the studio.
I used to watch the old 'Flash Gordon' series on TV, and it was thrilling to rocket to the planet Mongo every week. But after a while, I figured out that although Flash got the girl and all the accolades, it was really Dr. Zarkov who made the series work. Without Dr. Zarkov, there could be no Flash Gordon.
I love becoming a character outside of who I am. Even when I was a little girl, I loved make believe, so I like it.
I just try to go to work, and concentrate on coming home to my girls.
I'm into the girls fancying me and stuff, mad for it.
I feel like I 'get' boys. I've always been a boy's girl. Boys are easy; they just break stuff.
When I see these young girls who are dreaming the dream that I'm living, it's very very exciting and it puts a big smile on my face.
I used to flirt with girls just to get the guys circling around us. I'm getting out of it now. I have to look after my reputation.
We all get old, but I always say the skinny, pretty girls will be screwed.
We say that a girl with her doll anticipates the mother. It is more true, perhaps, that most mothers are still but children with playthings.
F. H. Bradley
In normal life people say, 'You're so different than on stage!' Offstage I'm down to earth, simple and a very goofy girl... I like to make goofy faces, be dorky and not take things too seriously. I just love to laugh.
My father identified as a black man. No one asked him because he was clearly black. But people always ask me. If we were together, people would look at us in a really strange way. It sucked. As a little girl I had blond hair and they'd look at me, look at him, and be disgusted.
The Boys and Girls Club taught me a lot about sportsmanship, humility, self-respect.
When I was on stage with the Spice Girls, I thought people were there to see the other four and not me.
It's odd, that's why I don't like telling people I played field hockey. It's real big in Australia for guys. But I say I played in America, and everybody goes, 'Oh, you girl!'
Every phase of our life belongs to us. The moon does not, except in appearance, lose her first thin, luminous curve, nor her silvery crescent, in rounding to her full. The woman is still both child and girl, in the completeness of womanly character.
'Malandrinas' means 'bad girls,' but not bad in a negative way. I wrote it in homage to my female fans.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
John F. Kennedy
Leonardo da Vinci
