Quotes

#Quote
1[on Homeland (2011)] I was shocked and a little appalled because I realized Obama has seen my boobs.
2I can't complain. I'm making a living out of what I do, which is really rare for a lot of actors. The hard part is staying confident and staying with it.
3I love it when you have a lull in the day and you turn on the TV and a random movie is on that you either have never seen or haven't seen in years. Like Coming to America (1988) or Misery (1990) or Moonstruck (1987).
4I'm not always up to date on everything that's going on, but I am somewhat informed. I listen to NPR. And I actually watch Fox News, because I believe, if you just listen to the things that agree with you, you're not really seeing anything else.
5I've love to do more movies. Just because I'm interested in the medium very much. I've done a lot of theatre at this point, and I've done a lot of TV. I've done a few independent films, but a lot of them have not seen the light of day. It'd be really nice to be in a film that gets out there.
6My mom is an actress, but she never really pushed me into it, and it was never something I thought I would be doing. She was very happy I decided to, but she certainly doesn't offer me criticism because she knows I'd tell her to shut up! Nobody wants to hear that from their mum!
7My whole family is very artistic - my uncles are all actors and theatre directors.
8The sky above us is something we have very little control of, and the space beyond is something we don't completely understand.
9There are many people who live with terrorism every day.
10Women work as much as men now, if not more. There's a resurgence of dads in the home and moms working.
11Brazil has a lot of issues that are similar to a lot of countries in Latin America, but the dominant issue Brazil is dealing with is poverty and political corruption.
12I get nervous for any competition. I also get really competitive.
13I love Modern Family (2009); I don't exactly watch it when it's on, but I try to catch up on it when I can; it's one of my favorite shows.
14I'm an avid cook. Brazilian, some Italian, a little French. And I often throw dinner parties.
15If you watch the news, you see politicians use human vulnerabilities to get in and earn people's trust.
16My mom was incredibly supportive when she found out that I wanted to be an actress, and that certainly made things easier and more fun.
17My mother put me on birth control as soon as I told her I wanted to go on it. I was 16. I was very young.
18When I'm not working, I'm definitely a no-makeup girl. The most I ever do is a little tinted moisturizer and a little mascara and blush.
19Humans have a sense of spontaneity and emotion. We have a dichotomy between grief and happiness.
20We're all interested in life outside of Earth. We all have a fascination with what's out there because we don't really know.
21I feel that I have grown so much, as an actor, by being on Homeland (2011).
22I've had long hair, I've had short hair, and I've had in between hair... and its all good.
23They have a joy for life in Brazil unlike any country I've ever seen.
24I do think it is possible to be in love with two people at the same time.
25I love a good road trip. And I have been known to sing cheesy '80s songs at the top of my lungs on a windy road when no one can hear.
26I would love to be a Bond girl. That is on my bucket list, definitely.
