On working on the set of “The Newsroom”:
“I love being part of that team and work with [Aaron] Sorkin. The only reason that I can like someone is by their scripts. Not my merit. We all want to work with [Sorkin], his dialogues are great. When I heard about “The Newsroom” I was doing “The Daily Show” and knew that I would regret if I did that bet.”
On becoming Sloan:
“Sloan is fiercely loyal and if you ask any of my friends, [they will tell you that too. Also she does not need to justify her actions, and that is my philosophy. When I was little, we moved every so often and I had to make new friends. I realized that I could not like everyone, I had to feel comfortable with my imperfections because people noticed them right away. I wanted to give that character that determination. I was inspired by many woman I know.”
On posing for Playboy:
“Hated that photo shoot. [I] will never do it again. I [said] I [would not] undress and [it was] included in the contract, but they were pushing me to do it. I agreed to pose because it was a special issue. It is still an hour and is a major magazine. It meant sacrificing any of my principles.”
