  • Sarah: (on searching online new about herself) I've done it a few times. I'm guilty. My mom's really bad at it. My mom has these google alerts for me, so anytime something happens, she sends it right over to me and is like, 'You and your husband are broken up? You're leaving your family and moving to Canada?!' And I go, 'No, mother, no! Stop!' But anyway, I've googled myself, but it doesn't mean anything. The good stuff, the bad stuff, it's all meaningless to me.

  • Sarah: (on her background) My great-great-grandfather was a shah back in the 1800s. Unfortunately, I don't have any gold coins or jewels to show for it. I did a lot of theater growing up, and in college I was in the musical 'Chicago.'

  • Sarah: (on her definition of sexy) I know it sounds weird, but my definition of 'sexy' has changed as I've gotten older. And being smart and informed makes me feel sexier than any outfit.

  • Sarah: (on her feeling after working out) Right when I finish a workout, I feel pretty sexy. Even though I'm sweaty and I don't smell like a rose, I feel strong. It does a lot for me mentally and physically.
