Quotes (6)

  • I've never gotten to do romantic comedy like most of the girls. Maybe because I'm fit, people assume that I'm not funny?
  • There is so much pressure to look a certain way in this town. But it's nice to have a little meat on you, and I hope I inspire women to appreciate their muscular calves.
  • I think my parents were originally going to name me 'Snowmo Biel', so I guess in that respect 'Jessica' was a real win for me!
  • The first movie I remember seeing is The Goonies (1985). I never identified with girls, and the cast was all boys. Girls were nervous about going into caves; they were scaredy-cats--and I wasn't into that at all. I loved the idea of being with a crew and having an adventure.

  • [on whether or not she felt she was talked into doing some of the "blockbusters" that she's starred in] It's really tough. It's so easy to be a Monday morning quarterback and say, "Oh, that was a bad idea." The thing is-you give up so much control. You do your job while you're shooting, and then that's it.

And sometimes you make a decision because you need to pay your rent, sometimes you make decisions because people are talking to you about "international value," and to do a movie that would do well internationally, even though it's not the right creative choice for you because if you can do that, then maybe you can do that small character piece that you really want to do. And usually, the ones that look right on paper are the ones where you go, "What was I thinking?!" and the ones that look crazy, you end up going, "Wow, what a great outcome that was."
