Josie: I'm still figuring out why people would want to look at me. Maybe it's generic beauty, but it's weird to be valued for something I was born with.
Josie Maran: (about her crushes on Gwen Stefani and Johnny Depp) I wanna merge them into one person.
Josie Maran: (about the game, Van Helsing) For this game, we shot it just like it as if it was a film so there wasn't that much different from doing a film other than some technical things for the costume that had to be done so they could transfer the footage later and make it look animated.
Josie Maran: Performing for a game involves real acting. The way they create a game is very similar now to how they create a film. I've always wanted to stretch my acting skills, and the timing being what it is, I couldn't say no.
Josie Maran: Working on "Most Wanted" has been a great experience. If they'll have me back, I'd be happy to get with more games.
Josie Maran: The roughest part of that [model] lifestyle is the travel and early mornings.
Josie Maran: Part of the challenge of "Most Wanted" is trying to become the most notorious street racer on the pavement.
Josie Maran: Modeling isn't all that tough.
Josie Maran: Like most celebrities, of course, I adore all the Mario games.
Josie Maran: I've been in plenty of situations where someone I'm dating had more time for a console than me.
Josie Maran: I'm still figuring out why people would want to look at me. Maybe it's generic beauty, but it's weird to be valued for something I was born with.
Josie Maran: I have a Volvo S60R and it's a pretty fast car, the "R" says it all.
Josie Maran: I do like to drive fast and I have gotten pulled over in the past. I use my skills to get out of tickets.
Josie Maran: I did a little voiceover for the game they made out of Van Helsing, this movie I did, and it's kind of hard watching an animated figure of yourself.
Josie Maran: I could lie and tell you I'm a hardcore gamer. I'm not.
Josie Maran: I don't believe in marriage. I just don't think it's necessary in this day and age. I just think if you get married and you're already distrusting the person, why do you have to sign something to show your love? You just love.
Josie Maran: Red wine and sushi is my favorite. I like eel, yellowtail, and tuna, but I'm obsessed with sea urchin roe. Obsessed. I need it. When I eat it with my friends, I freak them out a little because it's almost orgasmic. I say, 'Can you guys feel it? 'They're, like, 'Whatever.' Eating it is an experience that I like to have alone. I love the creamy texture.
Josie Maran: I love talking about sex, but doing it is better. I'm good at psychology, and I'm good at lovin'. My dream is to have sex twice a day. Every time I get into bed, I want it. Guys are, like, 'Whoa, slow down!' For most guys it's time to sleep. I'm, like, 'No, it's not!' They can't keep up with me. And I don't believe in marriage. Why do people screw up a perfectly good thing with a contract? I just want to have fun, happy sex and romance.
Josie Maran: I would love to play the Femme Fatale or an action role like Trinity in the Matrix or something like that. You know, a part with a lot of costume changes.
Josie Maran: I'm really shallow when I come to guys. I only date really good looking, well-endowed guys, with great bodies. My friends are always going on at me. I'm like "I can't help it! I'm just a woman with high standards!"
Josie Maran: When I was younger, I wanted to be a sex therapist - a hipper Dr. Ruth. I've never had a boring conversation about sex. When you talk about sex, people come alive. My friends told me, `You know, guys are going to come to talk about their wives, but then they're going to want to sleep with you.' I figured I'd just wear a bag over my head.
Josie Maran: I'm usually a mellow, go-with-the-flow person, except when someone tells me I should do something. Then I get stubborn. If they don't back off, I get this horrible rage and want to kill them. When I was four and my mom would send me to my room, I'd get so mad I'd go outside and bang my head on the sidewalk.
