Trivia and Quotes

  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Cobie: [On who she would love to have dinner with, living or dead] I would really love to sit with Kathryn Hepburn because I find her so interesting. I also lost a cousin a few years ago who I was really close to, he was like my brother, so if I could have dinner with him one more time I'd love that.

    • Cobie: [On wanting to play the character "Wonder Woman"] I think it's just the curse of having brown hair in this industry and being an actress. I think it's just a general, like, question that everyone's going to pose their clients.

    • Cobie: [On "How I Met Your Mother" guest star Britney Spears and handling media attention] I think [Britney] is a really nice person who is just stuck in this frickin' crazy ball of media attention and it's just crazy. I would never be able to handle that amount of publicity and that amount of press surrounding me at all times.

    • Cobie: [On the future of "How I Met Your Mother" after the third season] I've always seen the mother as someone we meet and then that's the end of the show, so if [CBS] is like 'Guys, you don't have a fourth season,' that's when writers would be like, 'OK! Time to bring the mother in!'. But I really don't know what's going to happen at the end of the show! I really, seriously know nothing.

    • Cobie Smulders: [On the How I Met Your Mother music video] Robin herself is just very conservative. This was something she just doesn't want to remember. She just wants it to be a part of her life that is forgotten.

    • Cobie: [On rehearsing a scene] What's more awkward than doing a shower scene? Rehearsing a shower scene. Josh Radnor and I were like: 'We're imagining water running right now.'

    • Cobie: [On How I Met Your Mother] There are a lot of sides to the characters on our show. Lily can be sarcastic, smart, funny. They're hooking into all these grey areas of the characters.

    • Cobie: [On Ted and her character's relationship in How I Met Your Mother] Yes. It's very interesting of them to pursue that and explore that type of relationship, even though everyone knows she's not the mother. But that doesn't mean it's any less significant.

    • Cobie: [On How I Met Your Mother] Ted is such a romantic, he's more of the girl in the situation, I suppose. But I think it's a realistic approach. A lot of people have opinions about Robin and him not ending up together, but I always say, just because they don't end up together doesn't mean it's not a significant relationship.

    • Cobie: [On How I Met Your Mother] I've read a lot of scripts and I'm really luck to be able to play a woman who's funny and can be charming and has a mischievous side to her as well. I'm really lucky.
