  • Quotes

    • Jennifer: (on returning to uni while remaining on The Bold & The Beautiful) I always knew that at some point I wanted to do more with my education, so I'm getting my MBA from Pepperdine University. Less than a week after stating, I got this role [on B&B]. My contract is for four years on B&B, so I'm hoping I can stick with school. It can get overwhelming at times, but I really want to do both.

    • Jennifer: (on math and majoring in accounting) I always loved math and I'm still pretty good with numbers. My older sister pushed me in the direction of accounting; it seemed secure, so I went with it.

    • Jennifer: (asked when she began entering beauty pageants) In my senior year of college. I was an exchange student in Spain and there was this little pageant. My girlfriends were like, 'You should do this'. There was a $300 prize and I thought, 'I want that', so on a whim I entered and won.

    • Jennifer: (on visiting Australia) I was at the Gold Coast for a car race, working for a week. I used to be a promotional model and I would pose with the winners down in the pit. It was so noisy and everyone was saying to me, 'It's so darn cool', and I would say, 'No, it's not fun and it's giving me a headache, and it's hot and you're in a bathing suit posing.' I loved Australia, though. I'm just not one for car racing or sitting in the pit. I would like to go back.

    • Jennifer: I'm fashion-challenged. I'm terrible with it. Everyone's like, 'You can't be. You always look so put together when you leave work.' You don't understand. I have to call people and ask, 'Do you put this shoe with this purse?' I have a friend coming over to my house to put together outfits this weekend, because that's how bad I am.

    • Jennifer: (on faking on-screen chemistry) I've been lucky to have a lot of really hot co-stars, so I've never had to fake it. But an acting teacher showed me how to do that, so I have it as a back-up. But I haven't had to use it yet.

    • Jennifer: (on rumours she dated Ronn Moss) They are not true. I do specifically remember the whole rumour because my mother called me. Everyone was asking her. Mum would say, 'I hope she would tell me before it's in a magazine'. We had a good laugh.

    • Jennifer: (on performing a striptease scene) I suppose I was a bit nervous when they told me I was going to do this striptease dance. I went, 'Wow! They're really assuming I can dance'. I felt pretty comfortable. You have to do it… it's your job! I was a little bit nervous because there were like 50 extras and the whole cast. I was better after a while. The choreographer was great and helped me. I felt a lot of support from everyone on the show.

    • Jennifer: (on the sexuality she brings to her roles) It's funny. I don't think that I'm playing the sexuality role. But I'll watch myself on the TV and realise I slink around, and I don't even realise that I am doing it. It's ridiculous! It's just when I am acting. I don't think I slink in real life. I hope not!
