"I am a big girl. A voluptuous, curvy, dress-wearing lesbian. I love my body; it’s the only one I’ll ever have. I eat a lot of greens and work out and drink gin martinis and put M&Ms in my froyo and sometimes I don’t do anything but watch Project Runway. I am allowed to look sexy, feel sexy, and be in love. I am worthy of all of those things, and so are you. Own your good and bad, and all the scary parts that you’ve been covering up because it is yours and no amount of judgement can tell you how to love your body. In the words of Sonya Renee, the body is not an apology. You are magic. “
“I think it’s funny that when I go onstage to accept an award, they think I’m nervous, uncomfortable, and awkward—and I am—but those are bad words for them.”
I take my inspiration from everyone I work with. My favorite actors are people that I’ve worked with. The Skins kids, all of them, every single one, are my favorite actors because you learn so much from them. I really respect certain people’s careers. I really respect Jennifer Lawrence’s career, Kristen Stewart… But I think — I look forward to working with unknown people and people that are just breaking through and that have that kind of fire for it and haven’t necessarily had the money or the education or the parental connections to get into the industry, and I think that’s great.
