  • Quotes

    • Brooklyn: (on working in the sitcom Friends With Better Lives) It's terrifying because if you mess up on sitcom, they ring the bell, they stop the audience, they stop everything. It becomes this very awkward 'you-f--ked-up-the-line' moment, and so the best thing to do is just to cuss. And so I screwed up a line and I was likes, 'S--tballs!' And I didn't even mean to do it, and I swear it got a bigger laugh than any joke could possibly get.

    • Brooklyn: (on never having the opportunity to be runway model) I never even got a chance to walk the runway. They didn't hire me!

    • Brooklyn: (on not being a runway model) I never walked a runway because I was too klutzy. I could never get through a runway casting. I mean, I couldn't walk!

    • Brooklyn: (on her modeling career) I wasn't great when I was modeling, so I kind of left the second I could

    • Brooklyn: (on what she did when first paid job) With my first pay check, I sent my parents to Jamaica, so they actually got passports! They're pretty

      grounded; it wasn't until they saw the trailer for 'Battleship' that they were like, 'Ooh, this is a big movie, isn't it?'

    • Brooklyn: (on the transition between modeling and acting) I'm not going to sit here and say, 'Pity me; I came from modeling.' It's opened a lot of doors.

      People will take meetings because they've heard the name before. That's an advantage that I have.

    • Brooklyn: (on wanting to both have a family and work at the same time) I think that I'd like to try to be a superwoman and have kids and work, so we'll see if I can actually accomplish that.

    • Brooklyn: (on the experience of seeing herself on film) I have a really difficult time watching myself on film. I literally cower in my seat and cover my face.

    • Brooklyn: When you have a gown, there's much more to be concerned about. Where is this crease falling? Are you making a weird shape with the dress? Are you doing the

      designer justice? With a bathing suit, it's more about you and the mood you convey.

    • Brooklyn: (on deciding to move from modeling to acting) The 'Sports Illustrated' cover was the last thing I shot. That week, I told my agent, 'You know what,

      I really... I don't want to be a model anymore. I really want to do movies.' And I think he wanted to wring my neck at the moment.

    • Brooklyn: (on considering that her modeling career was serendipity) I would like to say I've achieved goals, but really, modeling is all luck. You're not

      really achieving anything. The least hardworking person with a special face can be huge and have a whole world of success.

    • Brooklyn: (on not going to college, because of her acting career, and missing it) I really missed going to college. I missed not having that education and that experience.

    • Brooklyn: (on not playing tennis, even-though her husband is tennis pro Andy Roddick) I don't play tennis at all.

    • Brooklyn: (on her growing up and upbringing) My parents had us very young. We lived in a modest house. We built forts, we hiked, we went camping and they

      wanted us to be independent. It's how children grew up in the 1940s and 50s: outside all the time, playing in the dirt, riding your bike around.

    • Brooklyn: (on her ability for sports) I have zero hand-eye coordination - zero - so I've never been good at softball, basketball, golf, things like that, but

      I'm really strong and I have really good endurance so I can go forever - I'm a tough girl.

    • Brooklyn: (on liking to travel, but not doing modeling) I loved the travel but I didn't love the work. I mean, come on, modelling is only so stimulating!

    • Brooklyn: (on herself image) Because I'm such a tomboy, I hate showing off my body.

    • Brooklyn: (on wanting to change from modeling to acting) I don't see myself doing catalog shoots in Madrid anymore like I was doing two years ago. I hope that the acting side of things grows.

    • Brooklyn: (on having fought with an eating disorder) My father did an intervention and got me to stop obsessing about everyone else and wrecking my body.

    • Brooklyn: (on her name) I'm named after a horse. My mom's best friend had a horse named Brooke, so my dad suggested 'Brooklyn' as a more formal version, and

      it just stuck. And now I live in Brooklyn part-time, so go figure.
