On whether she thought she would be successful: “I don’t know. Yes? You can’t count on success in this business. But anyway, being famous or rich or making a certain kind of movie – none of that means ‘success’ to me."

"Success to me is being happy and fulfilled, truly fulfilled, and being proud of myself and doing different things all the time. So thus far, yes, I’ve been successful.”

On how Gossip Girl changed her style: “My friend says that before the show I dressed like a homeless person. I used to buy everything at garage sales. It was hard to give up! I’d be like, ‘But this crazy sweater is amazing, and it only cost 25 cents!’"

"I’ve learned from Blair, though. Now I like to pepper in some designer stuff.”

On her makeup routine: “I’ve stopped wearing makeup when I’m not working. For a while I thought I had dark circles and bad skin, and then I realized I was seeing myself that way because I didn’t recognize myself anymore without makeup."

"Now when I wear it, I think I look really weird!”

On love: “I love love. It’s the most intriguing universally understood emotion, and it comes in so many forms: family love, love of friends. I fall in love with everybody all the time.”
