- Jennifer on baby rumors: "But it's not what you read. There's no desperation. If it's meant to be, it's meant to be. I'm at peace with whatever the plan is. But will you hate me if I say I don't want to talk about my relationship?"
- Jennifer on the first time she stood up to a male director: "I threw a chair at a director. It wasn't my proudest moment. He was treating a script supervisor horribly . . . When the director walked in, I threw a chair at him. I missed, of course. I was like, 'You can't speak to people like that.' I can't tolerate it."
- Naomi on her breakthrough role in Mulholland Drive: "It was a game-changer, but I knew I had to be careful. You can get a lot of attention and still be gone in a flash."
- Naomi on becoming an actress: "One of the things was seeing the movie Fame, as cheesy as that sounds. I was like, That looks fun! It wasn't that I wanted to be famous. I just wanted to go to acting class."
- Elizabeth on taking a year off school to make her film debut: "They're all indies, so the shoots were relatively short — it was great because every single film was a genre, and the directors were so completely different. It helped me figure out what worked for me and how I would adapt. It was difficult at times — like a great year of conservatory training. It was that intense."
- Elizabeth on her desire to act: "Watching old Frank Sinatra musicals when I was, like, 6. I wanted to be one of the love interests when I got older."
