On her former body types:
Ive been every size in the world. Part of my twenties, I was in great shape, but I didnt appreciate it. If I was a 6 or an 8, I thought, why arent I a 2 or a 4
On The Heat:
I did not want to play two dingbats who suck at their jobs. Id rather watch a character be good at something and be challenged theres more to play in that.
On the parts she looks for:
The goal is always that the characters are grounded. I like to play an eccentric version of people, but I never like to be wacky, wacky, look how crazy I am.
On adjusting to life in Hollywood:
Im a Midwest girl. Im chatty. Ill talk to anybody. In LA, that frightens people. You talk to somebody in a line in LA, and its like youve asked them to remove their pants.
