"I look on Google or read the tabloids. I prefer to focus on the books"

On being a model:
"In my business, you should be very strong in mind. You know, I don't care what people think about me, I really don't. You have to be sure about yourself and about your work and your career and you have to be strong inside because so many people come around and try to say bad things about you."
