“I decide what character I am. I allow myself to become another person. Because if I'm just Stephanie, I'm not comfortable. When I have to jump and do all these things, I feel so silly, but if you become someone else, it's okay.”
“I wanted to be Brooke Shields, and my mother was an aspiring photographer, so I was, of course, the only one who would sit still long enough for her to get things in focus, and I loved doing that.”
“I prefer my body after I've had kids to before. I like a womanly, shapely figure. I'm more secure as a woman. I know who I am.”
