Jessica: I've always wanted to have little Johnson's running around.
Jessica: That's the one thing about pregnancy: I'll cry at the drop of a hat. Even a great souffle would make me cry.
Jessica: I was always the girl who wore sweat pants and baseball caps to not be intimidating, but now I've learned to embrace beauty as part of my career.
Jessica: I would love to be making records and making babies and hopefully I'm married in 10 years. I have the dreams of every normal person. I want to be a great aunt.
Jessica: (revealing her first country album and her fan reactions have made her anxious) I am so nervous. I know this is a part of me that people are going to see that they've been waiting to see and I've been waiting to let out so it's very exciting.
Jessica: I love mini-skirts...because I'm mini.
Jessica: Dumb is just not knowing. Ditzy is having the courage to ask! Ditzy is not editing yourself.
Jessica: Beauty is never a blessing or a curse--I don't believe that old wives' tale. Beauty is a gift we give ourselves when we believe we are unique.
Jessica: There are a lot of girls with a similar body to mine, but my nose is special and unique to me.
Jessica: I am lactose intolerant. Don't give me any dairy! You will hear it come out at all ends!
Jessica: I always get a Mystic Tan before events.
Jessica: I'm not anorexic. I'm from Texas. Are there people who are anorexic in Texas? I've never heard of one, including me.
Jessica: (asked if she calls herself an actress or a singer) I say I'm an entertainer. I obviously entertain people with my personal life, which is not so much fun. But I'm passionate about music, I love to sing, I love to write, take pictures, keep a journal, be an actress, make movies. I just love entertaining people, being that escapism for people. Getting them through a hard day. And if I go through heartbreak, I invite you to go through it with me. I'm an overall entertainer and that's what I want to be known as.
Jessica: I don't feel the need to impress anymore. I've worked for a long time to get where I am, and now I can be comfortable in my own skin. I feel more in control of my life. Outward appearance is just secondary to the confidence that I feel inside.
Jessica: I stuttered as a kid, but I think it was because I had too much in my head.
Jessica (on body shapes): There's something very empowering about curves. You've got to have a little bit of bounce.
Jessica: Natural beauty is happiness with who you are. If you're like who are you in the inside, that will come through the outside.
Jessica: I can't use chopsticks. I fling stuff all over the place.
Jessica: I'm such a guys' girl. I can burp with the best of them!
Jessica: I'm open and honest...I don't want to put on armor to fight people...[but I've been] used so many times in my life.
Jessica: (talking about hardest part of being in a marriage) It's a big lifestyle adjustment. Nick and I are opposites...I've always been pampered; he's taken care of himself for so long...He expects me to be domestic; I don't know how. Nick is the neat freak; I'm not. I am a great cook, though. I spend too much money, so we fight about that...you can't expect every minute to be a fairy tale. But you will always work things out.
Jessica: (talking about her favorite look) I like off-the-shoulder shirts, big hoop or chandelier earrings, really tight jeans, and a great pair of Manolo Blahniks. Or I'm totally in a cute Juicy Couture outfit. I like to be comfy but look chic.
Jessica: All girls should have enough confidence to look good and be proud of it.
Jessica: I have always been able to express my creativity in the entertainment industry. Now with the launch of my own brand, I will be able to share my love of fashion and my lifestyle with my fans, and women across America.
Jessica: After a good make-out session, I feel pretty!
Jessica: Even if you don't like my music or my acting, you'll love my shoes!
Jessica: (on filming 'Employee Of The Month' ) I have my hair blown out pretty and flirt a little bit. I play a normal cashier girl and that's pretty much it. I just smile and have nice hair.
Jessica: I respect knowledge of the psyche. I would be a therapist if I weren't an entertainer.
