I don't think it's narcissistic at all to love yourself and believe in yourself. I think some people are really scared to do that. I have to. If I don't, I would not succeed in what I do.
My favorite part of my body is my brain. I think no matter what my body looks like, I won't be satisfied unless I know how to use it.
You can keep knocking me down forever, I'll keep getting up and trying.
Until they come up with an independent woman who's on an adventure of her own, I don't think I'm interested.
I wanted to express myself. I wanted to be creative and I didn't want to worry about someone bossing me around in the process. You have to struggle no matter where you are to get to where you're going, so I'm like, working it honey!
I would like to see a fierce Fantasia mixed with Blade Runner, Lord of the Rings, and Star Wars all in one. That's the kind of movies I want to make.
