Denise Richards

Trivia and Quotes

Quotes (18)

  • Denise: There are always two or three or four sides to every story.

  • Denise: I don't know what the big issue is about a kiss with Neve Campbell in Wild Things. It's a role, and I think a bigger issue is made out of it. It was a part I took, and it's what the character did, so I did it.

  • Denise: It's funny; it's taken me a long time to look at myself as a business from which I make my money. I know that when I did Playboy magazine five months after I had [my daughter] Sam, I was selling a sexy image. At home, I don't think of myself as sexy. I scoop up dog poop and clean up my kids' vomit when they're sick. I wake up looking disheveled and throw on a pair of sweats while I make their breakfast. I hope to have a husband who thinks that's sexy, but that's not the perception people have of me. They see me on a magazine cover stealing someone's husband or wearing very little clothes in a movie-but that's just an image. And I'm made my money selling that image for better or worse.

  • (about her lesbian fling with a Hollywood actress)
    Denise: I just met her through friends and work and stuff... I was just curious. We were curious. She was a girly-girl. She's beautiful. You would know who she is.

  • (about going to hotels to have sex)
    Denise: You don't want to bring them home to your house, but I have certain needs. Friends with benefits are awesome. I used to be like, 'Oh no, you have to be in a relationship.' But after going through a divorce, I'm like, 'Life is short, I wanna have a good time.'

  • Denise: (on joining "Dancing With the Stars" in 2009) I've been approached in the past, but I didn't want to do it. I wasn't brave enough. The perception of me was so bad [because of my divorce from Charlie Sheen] that I probably would have been voted off the first night! Now I'm in a different place, and it's going to be fun. Besides, life is short.

  • Denise: (about her daughters, ages 3 and 4 at the time) Yes, my kids are in therapy. It's very sad that they need to be there, but they do for now. On the other hand, it's good they have an outlet to deal with their feelings, and that they have someone to be their advocate. If I can help anyone feel better about their kids being in therapy, then something else good has come of this, too.

  • Denise: I really don't see the downside to posing for Playboy again. I mean, I did it before, and everyone's already seen me naked, so what the hell, right?
