On Girls:
“I wasn’t like, ‘I want us all to be chubby with acne!’ I wanted us to be beautiful — but the way you have friends who are beautiful and you go, ‘My friend Meredith just has the most amazing face.’ You’re not marveling at her like a movie star, but you’ve fallen in love with her face.”

On Beauty:
“I feel prettier with a naked face and ChapStick. But a good haircut makes a huge difference.”
