"I love fast cars, loud guns and classic rock 'n' roll, but I'd never do any of it in flats. I love me a nice, big uncomfortable pair of heels and some big hair! Maybe it's a Southern thing, but I love dressing up. It's everything I can do not to leave the house in a goddamn prom dress every day."
"I'm very lucky. I've always been a big fan of reading and books. I think the minute you pick up a book about world history or religious history; the minute you start to learn about other societies, other cultures, other religions and the history of the ones that have brought our world to what it is today, I think it's very easy to escape. But, not for most people because it's easy to just turn on the TV and watch American Idol."
