Jessica: (about being in school) It's pretty good, actually. People treat me pretty normally. I think most of all, people just won't talk to me. That's the kind of thing that happens. I wouldn't necessarily say that they're ignoring me on purpose; I just think it's kind of like they don't really know what to say, and I sometimes don't know what to say either. So I'll just sit there. If I'm in a class where I don't know anybody, I sometimes just won't talk to that many people. But people treat me really cool, and they don't bug me. They're great. They're really great.
Jessica: I don't really care about, you know, changing my image. I just want to do different things. That kind of was the draw for me - when I thought about being an actor as a little kid - is that I can be a princess, I can be an archeologist, I can play this person, I could be anything. It doesn't have to be me, and that's the great thing about the job.
Jessica: (about posing in skimpy bikinis) I figure that someday, I'll be able to tell my grandchildren, "Granny used to be a hottie!"
Jessica: (referring to her breakout role) This guy came up to me and said, "Do you remember that one time on 7th Heaven when you barked like a dog?" That was my favorite episode!
Jessica: (on Adam Sandler touching her breasts in I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry) I was definitely freaked out about filming that scene where Adam has to inspect my boobs to see if they are natural. I knew it was coming, I thought, 'I've only got a month, three weeks, then two weeks.' I had to train pretty hard and stay on a structured diet. I don't like the word 'diet' though, I just kept my eating in check to get to a place with my body where I felt, 'OK, its cool, I can be in a movie in my underwear.
Jessica: (revealing she believes marriage is just a piece of "paperwork") I don't feel the need to settle down right now. And if I do meet somebody, I don't feel the need for the paperwork of marriage. For me, a verbal agreement is enough. I don't know if I want to get married.
Jessica: (on modeling) It's never nearly as sexy doing it as it appears in a magazine. You're sort of laughing through the photo shoot because it's funny to take yourself so seriously. I could never be a model because you're always standing in an awkward position and your back hurts, and you're wearing heels lying on a rock or in the sand or something. You're like, 'This is weird. I'm uncomfortable. I'm itching. I need to scratch.'
Jessica: I can't even go to the dry cleaner by myself anymore. You're seen in public with anybody that you might not even know, and you're speculated about.
Jessica: There's a vulnerability to being photographed without having your eyes defined or your eyebrows filled in, but I don't wear a lot of makeup in my personal life...I find that men in my past, have preferred me without it. They always said, 'No, take that off.'
Jessica: I'm on this nutritional plan--no salt, no sugar, no bread. Just some fruits, every vegetable you can think of, lean meat, and water. They say they want me to have a six-pack stomach, but I think they really want me to have a twelve-pack.
Jessica: My definition of sexy is not just using what you got from God, but also that you represent what you believe in. I don't want people to think I'm sexy for what I look like, I want them to find me sexy for who I am and what I do.
Jessica: People are often afraid of me, but I'm not scary at all, I'm actually pretty sweet.
Jessica: The best part of acting, is that you can crawl in somebody else's body, every time.
Jessica: I seldom go to clubs and I always make sure that I can look in the mirror the next morning, and be proud of who I see. You will never find me drunk behind the wheel, and when there are drugs on a party, I'm out.
Jessica: Is there anything better you can do as an actress, than to use your fame for charities? I don't have the illusion that I can change the world on my own, but every little helps.
Jessica: When I was little, I wanted to become a surgeon. A dead squirrel was my first patient. My mother gave me a knife which i cut his head open with to look at his brains. I really thought it was very interesting. I still love to watch surgeries on TV, too.
Jessica: You've got to love this business. You have to be able to take rejection.
Jessica: Being someone I'm not for a period of time and loving every minute of being in someone else's skin.
Jessica: All of this excitement and success was the culmination of years of training and commitment and from being surrounded by great supportive people.
Jessica: I come from a very outdoorsy, adventurous, and extremely active family!
Jessica: Smile...Even when you life is at its worst, you never know when you'll meet the one who takes your breath away!
Jessica: (describing the movie The Texas Chainsaw Massacre) We worked really, really hard to make it incredibly realistic, so hopefully the audience will think it could happen to them or that it could be your neighbor who could, you know, be a psychotic maniac.
