Trivia and Quotes

Quotes (31)

  • Michelle: (on her Gossip Girl character) Georgina will be there at the end. Georgina should sleep with every one of the male characters on the show. I think it's not fair to single one out. Even though she's married, she's an equal opportunity offender. I look forward to bedding every Upper East Side boy..as Georgina!

  • Michelle: (on the worst thing said to her in NYC) It's probably been more recent, since I've grown into my womanly form. You know, you'll walk by a construction site and it's like, "You kiss your mama with that ass?" What does that even mean? I don't kiss my mama with my ass because it's back there! My lips are up here, so that's weird. It worked though, 'cause I turned around and was like, "What does that mean?!" So he won.

  • Michelle: (on the question about getting a tattoo) No tattoo. I don't enjoy needles. So, people won't ever have to worry about me getting a big 'ol tattoo across the back, no.

  • Michelle: (on what she would like to study in college) I would study film. I was accepted into USC as well as the film school, because that's two separate processes. But I wouldn't study theatre. I've never taken any acting classes. I don't believe anyone has a right to tell me how to be an actress other than my director, so I've never responded to that. I would study the history of film, I'd study producing and directing and just the beauty of film.

  • Michelle: (on her character from Love Bites) I thought Jodie's a really fun character, I've never really shot in a strip club before, so that was a fun experience. I was clearly overdressed. So embarrassing. It was fun.

  • Michelle: The boys didn't like me in high school. No one ever asked me out. Uh yeah, they were really mean to me. Actually I was doing an interview because I'm promoting a movie called Seventeen Again, and so the big question is "wouldn't you want to be seventeen again?" No, I really don't. I'm happy. I didn't have boobs when I was seventeen. I have boobs now. It's fantastic. I really enjoy them.

  • Michelle: (on playing a villain) I've never really understood those actors that don't want to play villains. Because if an audience leaves, you know, the theater or, you know, sitting on the couch thinking, "god I hate her," then you've done a good job.

  • Michelle: (on her preferences between comedy and drama) I do like doing both, but drama can be sometimes a little more exciting because you never know what's going to happen. I think comedies are a little harder because if it's actually funny, then it's really difficult to stop laughing.
