I grew up in a military family. I was moved around from school to school, so people aren't always the most welcoming to new girls in school.
I love my career right now, and I won't be with anybody until they make my life as satisfying and as happy as my work makes me.
I'm really sarcastic. Not Morgan Webb sarcastic. She's dry, 100%. I'm different from her.
I think it's always funny when somebody thinks you're going to do something super sexy and then you don't.
I never tried to use anything besides my own sweat and blood and talent to get somewhere.
I think women should start to embrace their age. What's the alternative to getting older? You die. I can't change the day I was born. But I can take care of my skin, my body, my mind, and try to live my life and be happy.
I just broke up with my boyfriend, so I'm officially single. But one thing I find unbelievably annoying is all these guys in my life who want to save me.
I realize my arms aren't as toned as Halle Berry's but I don't want them to be.
I'm very open about the fact that it's nice when someone says you're pretty. Especially for someone like me.
I was in a military family, so by the time I was 13 I'd lived in six different places.
I was a big fan of Super Troopers, so working with the Broken Lizard guys was so much fun.
Everyone's so timid and afraid to insult anybody, but in the end, it's like we're all trying to please everyone. In the end, we please no one.
I love dressing up in superhero outfits and in fact, when I dress up as Wonder Woman, I actually think that I'm more powerful.
Jon Stewart hires people that he thinks are funny. That's it. That's the only requirement.
Probably the geekiest attribute that I have of them all is that I've always had a hard time meeting friends. Like no matter where I grew up and I moved around, I always had a hard time.
A geek isn't the skinny kid with a pocket protector and acne. There can be computer geeks, video game geeks, car geeks, military geeks, and sports geeks. Being a geek just means that you're passionate about something.
Basically, I'm living the life of an actress in L.A. And I've recently had some pretty good fortune.
I got to play with Nintendo's Wii, yes it's a funny name and not very revolutionary but it was fun whipping your arms around.
I'm a much more chill person now that I know who I am and know my own voice, so I don't really get nervous with live TV at all.
I hate running. I know I'm curvier – I know I'm small, but I'm not ripped. But I make a choice to be that way. I realize my arms aren't as toned as Halle Berry's but I don't want them to be.
It is possible in this world to be pretty and funny and successful all at the same time.
The word 'geek' today does not mean what it used to mean. A geek isn't the skinny kid with a pocket protector and acne. There can be computer geeks, video game geeks, car geeks, military geeks, and sports geeks. Being a geek just means that you're passionate about something.
I am the same on camera as I am off. I can't imagine being any other way.
For 'Iron Man' I had to improv with Robert Downey Jr., which is like going up against LeBron in basketball. At one point he stopped and said, 'Can we give a round of applause to Olivia, because she's rocking it right now.'
If you think something's funny, go with that. Most comedians pull jokes from a place of honesty.
