Gabrielle: (When asked if there was anything that she wouldn't do in a role) Every year I say there's something I won't do but as I get older, I look for more challenges. I could do romantic comedies because they make me happy and I usually work with my friends. They're usually such enjoyable experiences, but in order to grow, I have to challenge myself. I don't feel comfortable doing straight nudity. Both my parents are alive and so is my Parish Priest. I don't even want to try explaining that to them. Maybe later when they won't care so much that I'm naked, but I don't believe that's happening any time soon.
Gabrielle: When someone who loves and cares about me compliments me, I feel more glamorous than when the flashbulbs are going off on the red carpet. Like when I just step out of the shower and am completely naked, vulnerable, and exposed, and my husband says, 'Wow, you're beautiful.'
