Sara: (on whether she will be seeking out a film/tv career after college) No, I really only have done parts that have come to me because of my title. I never really planned on that being my full time career. I have had parts in House Bunny and Miss March that were fun and appeared on Girls Next Door a couple times. I am going to go back to school now to finish up my degree in Business Marketing. After I graduate I am not sure what I will do.
Sara: (on Hugh Hefner) He is an amazing person. He is super smart and hard working. He still gets up and works 5 days a week, despite him being in his 80s.
Sara: (on how she got started with Playboy) They were having the girls of PAC-10 try outs and I went over on a whim. I was just in school studying and never really thought I had what it takes to be in Playboy, much less Playmate of the ear. I ended up getting picked to be on the cover. Then I got chosen as playmate of the month in July 2006. About a year later I was picked as playmate of the year.
Sara: (on highschool friend and NFL player Derek Anderson) I don't think that I'm famous, so I have to say Derek. It's a lot of work trying to look good, but Derek, to me, is the real star.
