    • Heather: (on working with Sandra Bullock) She's just a dream boss, you know? And a friend. She's un-intimidating and giving and has integrity. It's nice to work with someone like that, and it's nice to know that people that good and with the amount of integrity that she has, has the success that she does. It doesn't always happen that way.

I don't succeed as much as she does, but I try. I'm a little timid sometimes so I can understand that side of her.

    • Heather: (on working with William Shatner in "Miss Congeniality 2") Well you know, I was basically tied up for five weeks with him. He was the funniest thing on the set. He's just always joking, always making puns. He'd have us rolling.
