Trivia and Quotes

  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Carmen Electra: (on a wrestling scene with Kim Kardashian in the film Disaster Movie) I'd met Kim, but I really got to know her in our wrestling scene. There's hair pulling and I hurt my back and got some burn marks. But it's also sexy. We're sort of playing with the idea that guys get turned on by girls wrestling. We get into some down and dirty positions, so it's a good thing we became friends. Kim is so cool, not to mention being hot!

    • Carmen Electra: (on her shopaholic nature) Shoes, dresses, I buy it all. I had a hat phase where I bought every hat in sight… That phase is over but there will be another along soon.

    • Carmen Electra: I hope to be a mum some day, but I'm not rushing to be one. It would be a lot of fun. A lot of hard work, but I'll look forward to it someday.

    • Carmen Electra: (explaining a "sexiness kit") Keep a sexiness kit in the car or in a drawer at work with the essentials in it - perfume, lip gloss and a pair of heels because they'll help you better showcase your legs. Knowing you look hot also boosts your all-around confidence.

    • Carmen Electra: Life is not worth living unless there's a camera around.

    • Carmen Electra: You know criticism when you get into this business. You accept the bad with the good, the tabloids and the positive side of it.

    • Carmen Electra: (on not needing to watch any porn to research her role as a porn star in the movie, "I Want Candy") I didn't really need to do any research for the part, like watch lots of porn films. I've already seen enough!

    • Carmen Electra: (on keeping in shape) I do a lot of yoga and aerobics. Plus, you can burn a lot of calories in the bedroom too. I get a lot of guys coming up to me who have bought my striptease DVD and they thank me because their girls have learnt hot to give them amazing lap dances. I eat a lot of junk - while I was in the UK I ate so many Flake chocolate bars! I once had a job dressed as a clown and I had to pop corn in a shoe store. The problem was I ate so much popcorn I got sick. I got paid $4 an hour but was probably eating more than that in popcorn.

    • Carmen Electra: I'm really into quantum physics. It gives me chills thinking about it. It's fun.

    • Carmen Electra: (on how her closet is off-limits to her husband!) We don't share closet space!

    • Carmen: Death would be a beautiful place if it looks like Brad Pitt.

    • Carmen: It's an honor to be a part of such a legendary group of stars representing Max Factor, such as Rita Hayworth and Marilyn Monroe, ... I'm so excited to start working on the campaign.

    • Carmen Electra: People are surprised at how down-to-earth I am. I like to stay home on Friday nights and listen to 'The Art of Happiness' by the Dalai Lama.

    • Carmen Electra: I'm more attracted to a stronger man rather than a feminine man. Someone who would just throw me down and take control. I love feeling helpless. I definitely like a man who is aggressive and confident.

    • Carmen Electra: Dancing is my number one love. That was my first goal as a child. I would love to do stage, maybe do Chicago. I love being in front of an audience. It's so stimulating. I also love to barbecue.

    • Carmen Electra: I was watching an HBO special the other night on real-life maximum-security-prison guys. I glanced up, and my poster was in quite a few cells. I was screaming 'Oh, no!'

    • Carmen: Is there a rehab center for Coke drinkers? I drink six to eight cans a day.

  • Carmen is a true beauty and an asset to any production she has ever been involved with.

    I love Carmen Electra. She is one of the most beautiful women I have ever seen in my lifetime. I remember watching Singled Out and literally drooling over her every move. I always thought Baywatch was at its best when Carmen was part of the cast. While she has usually been cast in B-list movies, he appearance is always remarkably refreshing. It's good seeing her, even if it is in a bad movie. I will be in Las Vegas next weekend and I am happy to see she is hosting a party at Crown Nightclub (http://www.thecrownvegas.com). I am hoping I get a chance to meet and talk to this one-of-a-kind beauty.moreless
  • She is really beautiful but she is too flashy!

    She is really beautiful but she is too flashy! I think she could well be one of the prettiest women of all time. But she gets platic surgery a lot. I mean, she is really pretty, sweet, and a good actress, but she is totally fake! She also is like 35 years old and shows off too much skin for her age. If you saw her Emmys dress, it was pretty but really short for Carmen. I think she is a really good actress but she is way way WAY too flashy! She is pretty, sweet, good at acting, FLASHY, and FAKE!moreless
