On reuniting with John:
“He pulled away. That was a big hello for me. I realized I could lose the person I loved and I had to deal with some things, issues I think a lot of women have. You can be strong in one aspect of your life but submissive in another.”

On speaking to Kristen Stewart about hanging out with Rob:
“I sent [Kristen] a text message saying, “I know you”ve seen all this stuff but you know I would never disrespect you. I”m not that person. I”m just trying to be a friend to him but it is unfortunate that I do have a set of t**s.”

On Rihanna:
“I love her and every time I see her, I”m reminded of the light that she has. There”s a lot of dark in this business. I know a lot of people out there with the most detrimental entourages – they are the root of their demise. It”s really unfortunate but you can”t save these people. My days of celebrity saving are over.”

On the challenging men she”s attracted to:
“I”m not interested in taming anyone – I”m pretty wild myself.”
