Quotes

#Quote
1When I earned my first money, I went to a shop and bought jeans and a top. But then I wore them both for such a long time that finally my model agency said, "You should buy something else!". I was saving the money because it was the first time I'd ever had any.
2I love fire. As a child I loved setting light to things. I'd always be in the forest putting matches to pieces of wood. I've always regarded fire as my friend.
3I love it when a man cooks; it's one of those points that makes me adore a guy. I think it's so romantic and I feel cared for when a man cooks. As long as it's good. I wouldn't let a man cook cabbage, though, because I'm pretty sure men can't cook cabbage.
4I've loved men that wear un-ironed clothes, it doesn't make me fall out of love. When you love someone, you should see beyond their image. It just makes me want to iron their shirt. But once you love a person, they could wear a garbage bag!
5My life is not that glamorous. I actually live a pretty simple life, really. I just work. I don't have time to do all these glamorous things. I just do my thing, just work.
6What I love about sci-fi is that every generation's films are based on what we know at that point in time. We make movies about the future but it's always based on what we have. Then as science grows and we discover new things, so do our ideas. You know?
7All I want to do is a rom-com, but you know, people see me as an action person because the first movie that was seen by a lot of the public would be Hitman (2007).
8I don't like the mentality that comes with rich Russian men. Because they have money, they think they can buy a woman - and they do. They can't just meet a woman and fall in love. And it's women's fault because they allow it.
9I grew up in the Ukraine and then I went to Paris in 1996. I went there because there was a modeling agency that invited me there to work, so I thought, "Sure".
10I just love France, I love French people, I love the French language, I love French food. I love their mentality. I just feel like it's me. I'm very French.
11I looked for acting classes in Paris just to do something different than modeling. And then one day I just thought, "Okay, that's enough, I have to start doing something". I went to the acting agency and I just told them I wanted to act and asked them if they would give me a chance, and they did.
12I believe in miracles. At the age of 13, I was on holiday in Moscow with my mother. It was the only trip I took in my whole childhood. We stepped off a metro train and were approached by a talent scout who told me that she wanted to sign me to her modeling agency.
13I know how addictive video games are--I have friends who can't get up off the couch because they're so hooked. They provide these different virtual worlds that you can live in.
14I think I'll be single my whole life. It's entirely possible I'm going to end up alone. Because I don't want to make any sacrifices for my own development and achieving what I want to achieve, and I don't want a family to get in the way of that.
15I've always had a way with a gun. As a kid, I loved to fire them at the shooting range in amusement parks. I'd always return home with a handful of prizes.
16On a Terrence Malick set, your thoughts are his voice. You think you're thinking, but actually he's thinking for you. He speaks to you, and he's the voice in your mind.
17With modeling, you provide an image that is fake; with acting you have to provide an image that's real.
18You don't dream about things that are impossible; that are out of your range.
19You know it's harder to be a girl in this world because we're the weaker sex.
20Eventually there are going to be chips in brains. Imagine if you could just buy knowledge and download it into your head instead of having to learn it. Like in The Matrix (1999). Imagine all the years saved!
21Every actor has to move in a Terrence Malick film--that's the requirement. If you stop, he'll tell you, "No, no, keep moving". You can't be static. It's a choreography.
22When you live in a small town in the Ukraine, you definitely want to go to Paris.
23When you love someone, you should see beyond their image.
24When you're never home and traveling, you don't play video games.
25Why marry? If you're not married, you just leave each other and it's cool. Who needs the paper? To me it means nothing.
26With modeling, you go somewhere for 24 hours and you don't even see the city, you don't talk to people or see the culture.
27If I hadn't been a model, I couldn't have become a movie actress.
28In Paris, everybody is in black! But you know, in Ukraine everyone wears bright colors.
29Music evokes so many feelings in us, memories, nostalgia, things that are connected to our past.
30To be a Bond girl you need courage, charm, determination and feistiness.
31We were born and we die. In between, I think we try to live as best we can.
32I love boats. I can be on a boat for days.
33I'd love to work with David Lynch. I'm such a big fan. He's a genius.
34I'm a bit of a romantic. In theory!
35I've seen guys sit the whole day doing nothing, and I hate it when people are unproductive. I don't like a guy who sits on the couch all day.
36I did not have a father. It was my mom who chose to be alone. She felt that she would be better off by herself with me after I was born.
37I just went to an acting agency one day and said, "I would like to act. Would you take me?". And they took me.
38I like men who paint or write or do something creative.
39If a man can make me laugh and stimulate me intellectually, then I wouldn't mind if he was 4 ft. 8 in. with a huge belly. The only thing that would put me off is bad breath--but even that can be fixed. A bad personality isn't so easy to fix.
40As an actor, you don't want to play a one-dimensional character.
41Being single is only sad if you have a problem with your own company. I'm content with mine.
42Having people I love around me--friends and family--is great, but I don't necessarily need a relationship.
43I bring spiritual books with me while travelling. I like books about thoughts and how you see the world.
44To tell you the truth, I don't really follow what men wear. Men's fashion is much simpler than women's. It doesn't change as much.
45A Bond girl must be a strong and independent woman, but at the same time charming and sensual. Those opposite qualities combined together make her interesting. She must be strong but at the same time feminine.
46Hollywood always represents this big dream and fairy tale in people's minds, but to me, it's just hard work. Of course, we play fairy tale on the red carpet. It's all Cinderella. But when the clock strikes midnight, I turn into a gray mouse and I go home, and I take my dress off and it's over. That's Hollywood.
47I always listen to all kinds of different music from different years. I listen to the contemporary, but once in a while into '80s, you know, just for fun, and sometimes classical, too. So I have this big mix on my iPod . . . Amy Winehouse, Gwen Stefani, Outkast, Jay Z. I listen to trance, pop, everything. It really depends on my mood.
48I maybe missed money in my childhood, but I didn't miss love, that's for sure. My dad wasn't there, but I can tell you not even once did I think I was missing something.
49I hate jealousy, I hate possessiveness. I'm nobody's possession.
50I don't see divorce as a failure. I see it as the end to a story. In a story, everything has an end and a beginning.
51When I was a kid, we never had a video game in my house. But my cousin did, and each time I went to her house I was able to play "Tetris" and "Mario" Those were the only two games I played as a child.
52Every one of us, no matter how damaged or abnormal or shut down, we're all looking for love. Every person needs love in this world, but our views on what love is vary enormously.
53A lot of movies are made to make us dream.
54If you do these big blockbusters, suddenly people know who you are. That's how it works. It's the industry. You have to do that. That's what people watch.
