Quotations: There's something about blonds that triggers a lightheartedness. People can't take you seriously. Brunettes are more mysterious.

I think everyone has certain qualities that make them stars. But I think the strongest quality anyone has to bring to a film role is themselves. You have to bring the essence of who you are. That's where your real strength lies.
