Malin: (on nudity in movies) I spent a lot of time as a child in Sweden; it's natural there ... I don't know many women who go to bed with their husband at night and have sex with a bra on ... So let's make it real in the movies.
Malin: (on the work she does to learn her lines for a part) I get horrified when I have to do table reads with the whole cast, because there's a lot of stuttering coming from me, so I have to do a lot of prep.
Malin: (on feeling Swedish and Canadian) Every time I'm in Canada I feel more Swedish, and every time I'm in Sweden I feel more Canadian. I belong in both places and I love them both equally.
Malin: (on her parents divorce) I loved my father very much and I only got to see him during the school holidays. But I think it was an advantage that they split up when I was very young, so I could get used to it
Malin: (on Tom Cruise) There's an aura around him. He's professional, positive, upbeat, always smiling, always encouraging. I mean. it's crazy how huge a star he is, yet he's actually a real person, so down to earth. He engages everyone, cast and crew.
Malin: I have been a goof my whole life. I wasn't really the popular girl in school and didn't have any boyfriends in high school because I was a nerd. I was a geek.
Malin: (on her fight training for the movie "Watchmen") You go in and you have these amazing fighters that are doing this and they show you what to do. You try to do it and you look like a ballerina trying to do karate and it's so hard. It looks a lot easier than it is.
Malin: (on her sex scenes in "The Heartbreak Kid") They were definitely some crazy positions that I've never tried myself, and I don't think I would.
Malin: (on being compared with Cameron Diaz) Everyone is kind of projecting and thinking it's going to be great and thinking "It'll be like the Cameron Diaz thing." which would be wonderful if it happens.
Malin: (on her character in "The Heartbreak Kid") There are different stereotypes and truths that you put into scripts and of course she has a lot of them in this movie just to make her more of a character. I don't mind it because I think there's a truth to it.
Malin: (on her movie "Watchmen") It's not your typical superhero film. We don't, per se, have superhero powers. We're just vigilantes, fighting off crime. It's all about the [Vietnam] war and real issues - and there's a lot of psychology to it.
Malin: (on her character in "The Heartbreak Kid") Going from something sweet and innocent to something completely not and that no man ever wants to be married to? Absolutely not--I wouldn't even want to be married to someone like her.
Malin: Women have a way of contorting things sometimes. We all have our moods, ups and downs.
Malin: (talking about the rating for her new film, The Seven Day Itch) I hope it's PG for my sake.
Malin: Those are my favorite kind of parts to do, just being a goofball and seeing how far you can go with something until you're just way out of line.
Malin: I don't really have an issue with showing certain parts of my body. I'd rather not, but it's not a big deal. Growing up in Sweden, it's natural over there.
