Trivia and Quotes

  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Meghan: What's funny is I probably still have some calligraphy business cards floating out in the world, and I can't wait for someone to call me in a month or something, and say, 'Can you do these for my son's Bar Mitzvah?'

    • Meghan: Traveling gives you some perspective of what the rest of the world is like. I think that having the courage to step out of the norm is the most important thing.

    • Meghan: My God, I think about way back in the day when we were running around in Mary Janes and Doc Martens, that whole 90210-inspired look. I'm glad that's long gone.

    • Meghan: I've always had a propensity for getting the cursive down pretty well. What it evolved into was my pseudo-waitressing job when I was auditioning. I didn't wait tables. I did calligraphy for the invitations for, like, Robin Thicke and Paula Patton's wedding.

    • Meghan: I had always been the theater nerd at Northwestern University. I knew I wanted to do acting, but I hated the idea of being this cliché - a girl from L.A. who decides to be an actress.

    • Meghan: My very first audition was for 'Hot Girl #1' in some movie.

    • Meghan: Every day after school for 10 years, I was on the set of 'Married... with Children,' which is a really funny and perverse place for a little girl in a Catholic school uniform to grow up.

    • Meghan: I am a California girl, born and raised, so flip-flops and cutoff shorts are my go-to look. An easy Angeleno uniform, so to speak. But for my role on 'Suits,' I'm dressed in Alexander McQueen, Tom Ford, and Prada almost every day. And therein lies the difference. For work, I wear art; in real life, I wear clothes.

    • Meghan: I grew up with that farm-to-table dining before it was sweeping the nation. I do think there's some value to really throwing yourself into food and embracing where it comes from.

    • Meghan: When I get ready to go out, it's half hour and we're out of the door. I don't want to waste time getting ready: I want to go and have fun.

    • Meghan: Food makes travel so exceptional, because you get to taste what it's actually supposed to taste like. To eat the real Pad Thai or finally have a proper curry is something pretty amazing.

    • Meghan: At the end of the day, if the guy is going to write the girl a letter, whether it's chicken scratch or scribble or looks like a doctor's note, if he takes the time to put pen to paper and not type something, there's something so incredibly romantic and beautiful about that.

    • Meghan: Barcelona is one of the best cities in the world. I love it there. I love Big Sur. It's stunning and you get a therapeutic experience there. The drive up the coast is one of the most beautiful I've ever done. Also, Hong Kong. I could easily live there!

    • Meghan: Definitely working on 'Deal or No Deal' was a learning experience, and it helped me to understand what I would rather be doing.

    • Meghan: I think so much of what we learn when we get older is being comfortable in our own skin and learning what looks good, and not being so trend-centric.

    • Meghan: I had always been the theater nerd at Northwestern University. I knew I wanted to do acting, but I hated the idea of being this cliché - a girl from L.A. who decides to be an actress. I wanted more than that, and I had always loved politics, so I ended up changing my major completely, and double-majoring in theater and international relations.

    • Meghan: I'm from L.A., so I'm used to seeing people in sunglasses and flip-flops. There's something so romantic about a man in a scarf and a knitted hat.

    • Meghan: I went to an all-girls' Catholic school for, like, six years during the time when kids actually had handwriting class. I've always had a propensity for getting the cursive down pretty well.

    • Meghan: I do think there's some value to really throwing yourself into food and embracing where it comes from.

    • Meghan: My dad's a lighting director. Growing up in Hollywood, I was around the entertainment industry all the time. I knew I'd end up in show business in some capacity, eventually.

    • Meghan: I always want off-the-beaten-path, Anthony Bourdain-inspired travel.

    • Meghan: For work I get so dolled up that it's nice to wear boyfriend jeans and a sweater.

    • Meghan: Catty is not cool. I can't think of anything less becoming than a man who talks about people behind their backs.

    • Meghan: I'm a California girl, right? I grew up with that farm-to-table dining before it was sweeping the nation.

    • Meghan: I would love to do anything from a really gritty, interesting, indie type film, to that commercial, bigger stuff.
