Nick Loeb Best Quotes:
“I'm a natural blonde. But when I started acting, I would go to auditions and they didn't know where to put me because I was voluptuous and had the accent, but I had blonde hair. It was ignorance: they thought every Latin person looks like Salma Hayek.”
“L.A. is crazy. The women all look the same now. That thing with the cheeks. Like Madonna. Who do they think they're fooling? It doesn't make them look young. You end up looking like a freak.”
“If you're asking if my breasts are natural, yes, this is how I've looked since I was 13 years old.”
“I don't think God cares if I wear nail polish or not. I don't think that's a deal breaker for him.”
