    • Gabrielle: I'm a mass of contradictions and a hypocrite at the same time. What a mess!

    • (on working in Miami)
      Gabrielle: I actually love it. I would much rather be too hot than too cold. I'm perfectly happy melting all day long.

    • Gabrielle: At the end of the day I feel I've been independent, steadfast and proud. Unfortunately for a woman, that equals bitch or diva. For a man it seems to elicit respect ... I can't raise children without teaching them that what is important to somebody is worth fighting for, even if it means putting your career on the back-burner and having it fizzle and burn.

    • Gabrielle: Being married is something I don't care to repeat because, for me, it's been an idea of something that is an unfair ritual.

    • Gabrielle: (on playing Fiona in "Burn Notice") This is one of the few scripts I've read that not only encompassed humor, emotion and action, but had a multifaceted female lead. Fiona is that rare opportunity to indulge all ingredients to make someone a delectable, bittersweet and complex meal of a woman.

    • Gabrielle: Yoga is the only form of exercise I have ever understood. I would rather naturally birth quadruplets than step inside a gym.

    • Gabrielle: I've been hounded by a reputation of being difficult when really what I'm being is truthful and honest.

    • Gabrielle: To this day, I think if I stop I'm going to end up in some establishment somewhere.

  • Best dressed female in all TV Shows.

    okay, so we all have our opinions on who looks good and etc. My friend actually argued with me about Buffy, the world's favorite Vampire Slayer. I said Buffy was ridiculous wearing high heels while fighting off Demons and Vampires. Which brought us to present date, and even though I am a big fan of Yvonne Strahovski, who plays Sarah Walker on NBC's hit show CHUCK. My mind still wandered to Gabrielle Anwar's character Fi in BURN NOTICE. Mini skirts and cute lil dresses, but what really made her outfit really really cool is her brown satchel that she wears like a belt filled with gadgets to help her with her daily activities. who knows whats inside! Wallet, sunglasses, keys, lockpick, C4, glock. and added to that, Gabrielle Anwar is almost 40 but she doesnt look a day old over 25. now, that's one hot woman. *wolf whistle!*moreless
  • She's fierce, phenomenal and fab!

    GABRIELLE ANWAR is one of the most compelling personalities this season!

    OK, Burn Notice's spy chasing genre has some addictive qualities as original cable programming goes. I keep watching because Gab is the hook!

    She takes her role as Fiona well beyond the "beauty-and-brains" cliche. How many size 2, bomb-making, gun-toting, beachwear trend-setting, stand-by-your-man [or take him down a notch] action muses can you count on TV today?

    Casting Gab is Fi was a smart pick. Her character depth demonstrates talent far beyond any Bond girl or Baywatch babe.

    Gabrielle confirms her acting capabilities (e.g., guest appearance on Law & Order SVU) and, "Yes," she is underappreciated!moreless
