Quotes
  • No, I don't have to give this (Oscar) back. It's got my name on it.
  • I never in my life thought that I would be here, winning a Razzie. It's not like I ever aspired to be here, but thank you.
  • When I was a kid, my mother told me that if you could not be a good loser, then there's no way you could be a good winner.
  • I spent a lot of time with a crown on my head.
  • I don't see a white woman. I see a black woman, even though my mother is white [her father Jerome is black]. Knowing that has made my life easier, I think.
  • Secretly part of me has always wanted to try cocaine, but I just couldn't imagine sniffing anything up my nose. It seems like that would hurt.
  • The worst thing a man can ever do is kiss me on the first date.
  • I think it's always best to be who you are.
  • I really hated my nose. They (school children) used to call me pug nose, or buttons. Buttons was an early nickname and I hated it.
  • A good role for a woman is hard to come by - be she black, white, or sky-blue pink.
  • I carried my Oscar to bed with me. My first and only three-way happened that night.
  • I am so ready to be a Mommy. I can't wait! I notice every little baby dress, every little baby toy, every little baby thing.
  • I like my character [in Executive Decision]. She's a strong woman--one who acts, not reacts. That's good for women, I think.
  • I've pretty much learned I can let that [being black] hinder me if I want to ... or I can fight for different kinds of roles.
  • Before you go alter body, do some research and find out how many women have major life-threatening complications from nose jobs. Ask about how many nose jobs gone terribly wrong, and if you thought your face was wrong before, look what happens after. The more we start augmenting our bodies, the more and more we start to look alike, then nobody is special anymore.
  • I will never say never, but at this time in my life NUDITY IS OUT.
  • I know that there is a God - the God within me that's always present and will protect me. I'm not afraid to climb any mountain, because I know that I'm protected. Even if I fall and die, I'm still protected. My faith is on that level.
  • While being called beautiful is extremely flattering, I would much rather be noticed for my work as an actress.
  • I meditate and pray all the time. The faith and respect that I have in the power of God in my life is what I've used to keep myself grounded,, and it has allowed me to move away from the storms that were in my life. I'm still a work in progress, but I know that as long as I stay close to God I'll be all right.
  • I'm so glad I did Swordfish because I would never have been able to take a role like Monster's Ball had I not got through those inhibitions that were holding me back.
  • When I was younger, living in an all-black neighborhood the other kids thought I was better than them because of my light skin and straight hair. Then we moved to an all-white neighborhood and that was a culture shock ... I'd been used to being around all black kids.
  • When my husband wears this kind of oil, I'm like a puppy.
  • There's art and there's commerce. You have to find a way to mesh the two. It's important to do the little movies just for the love of the art. But it's those big movies that take you around the world and make you globally famous.
  • I'm a really good gymnast. I can do splits and back handsprings. I'm always asked to do it on a talk show. And every time I go they say will you do it. I say yeah, but I'm always wearing high heels or a short dress. And I keep saying one time I'm going to go on and wear jeans and sneakers so I can do back flips.
  • Just to be true to myself, which is why I did this movie. I figured everyone was going to freak out and say, 'Why would you do that after Dorothy Dandridge?' My answer is 'Because I can.' And that feels really good to be comfortable saying that.
  • I know that I will never find my father in any other man who comes into my life, because it is a void in my life that can only be filled by him.
  • I was black growing up in an all-white neighborhood so I felt like I just didn't fit in. Like I wasn't as good as everybody else or as smart, or whatever.
  • I understand now that 'special love' exists between two people when the passions lie beneath the surface.
  • It very hard to separate one's self from a character. Sometimes the people closest to me have to be very understanding.
  • Having a child is the most important thing that I'll ever do in this life and it was a responsibility I knew I had to be reday for. It's a selfless love. That child comes first, no matter what. And for the longest time, I thought I was too selfish to have a child. But now, I want babies. I want to wear those maternity clothes.
  • I don't know where they (tabloids) come up with these things. One week, they have me going out with him, and the next week, they have me going out with someone else. Some times I think to myself, 'People must think that I am the biggest whore in town'. But you have to laugh at it otherwise it would tear you down.
  • I wish all men were like dogs.
  • Blackness is a state of mind and I identify with the black community. Mainly, because I realized, early on, when I walk into a room, people see a black woman, they don't see a white women. So out of that reason alone, I identify more with the black community.
