Personal Quotes

"I've managed to keep my clothes on for everything I've done so far."
"I was doing poorly in a US history class," she explains, "partly, I think, because Hawaii is so isolated from the rest of the country. So my mother took me to Philadelphia and Boston to see the Liberty Bell and other famous sites. I ended up getting an A in the course."
"The hardest point in my life right now is trying to figure out what I'm gonna wear."
"My brother taught me how to fight. I was the neighborhood bully."

Mmm don't like her personal style at all...a bit all over the place but I agree, her face is gorgeous and isn't she 30-something nearing 40 now? Wow!

IMDB is wrong by the way, she isn't partially Filipino.
