On the revealing outfits she regrets:
“It’s not that I’m against body-conscious clothes: I have worn them on the red carpet or out, but when I’m photographed in them, I always regret it. For me, it’s always been the easy way out. When I wear something a little more reveal- ing, I think, Oh, gosh, I should have been more creative.”

On her mother’s red carpet critiques:
“Her mamá regularly emails her daughter critiques of her red-carpet outfits, entitled “Mom’s Review.” “She’s usually on the money. If she doesn’t like something, I can usually see why: it didn’t photograph well or looked weird around the waist.”
