Here is a bunch of memorable things that Christina has said. If you want to add a quote here, contact me and I’ll add it here!
I think we can stop rewarding filmmakers for being shocking, because most of the things that we think are shocking these days are these bleak pictures and movies that only show the depravity of things.
On the Monster sex scenes with Charlize Theron – We were stripped naked of all our defense mechanisms. We had sort of broken down our guards. We were completelyâ€¦vulnerable with each other.
I’ve been making movies so long, to me work and fame are the same thing. And that means that I don’t really understand the fame, and I don’t really understand what it is I’m supposed to be feeling. So I try not to think about it.
People feel like they have to live up to being perfect or have a perfect life or be perfectly happy, and it just makes them more unhappy.
You’re not bleaching my hair. I will smile when I think it’s appropriate. I’m already tan enough.
Body image is a really big problem. But I’m pretty much outside all that. None of my success is because of the way I look.
I’m not perfect-looking and I don’t say the right things, I’m a little different, nothing really special, but I guess I come across as a little more real to people and that comes through on the screen.
My dream role would probably be a psycho killer, because the whole thing I love about movies is that you get to do things you could never do in real life, and that would be my way of vicariously experiencing being a psycho killer. Also, it’s incredibly romantic.
I like playing people who are so afraid and ashamed of who they are and so disgusted by everyone around them that they decide to become the ultimate extreme of what they’re afraid they are.
I love to do characters who the audience is supposed to hate. The thing that keeps me interested in all of this is the interest in human nature. And I think that people who are the biggest assholes are usually protecting something special.
Look, they call me a hobbit [in a magazine]! Am I embarrassed? Are you kidding? I love The Lord Of The Rings!
I really like clothes. And it’s really fun to go out and be a celebrity for an evening because my real life doesn’t feel that glamorous.
I became outrageous because I’d sit in interviews and get irritated by stupid questions. That’s when I started saying crazy things.
Nobody knows the real shit I did when I was a teenager. Only what I allowed them to know.
I’m of an age where I like to think of everything I do as a step in the right direction, a chance for personal growth and all that bullshit.
Now my body is really womanly – a little too much so. It’s something I can fall back on. When I don’t know what else to do, I stick my chest out.
I don’t look the way I’m supposed to. In Hollywood, you’re supposed to look nice. Go get designer clothes. I don’t do that. I don’t like that whole thing where everyone looks the same. And I would feel like and asshole if I made myself look the same.
For the past two months, every magazine I’ve opened has had something about my body type. It’s silly. I weigh 105 pounds and wear a size two, but for some reason I’m a heavyweight.
When I was little, I looked like a fucking alien. I wasn’t cheerful or cute; I was annoyed a lot.
I used to pretent I was going to kill myself. I’d walk around the house with a knife and say goodbye to all the rooms. This was when I was 6, so it doesn’t really count. I wasn’t human then.
I was so perverted when I was a little girl.
No matter how sweet I sound, everyone’s going to expect me to play the evil one.
The people are so fake and I love fake people – all they ever do is tell you you’re beautiful.
I think reincarnation is possible. Hopefully, we all get recycled.
Nobody’s kissing my ass, unfortunately. I could use a little. But then again, my personality isn’t conducive to butt-kissing.
I certainly hope I’m not still answering child-star questions by the time I reach menopause.
You have to excuse me because I AM a teenager, so I’m allowed to sound illiterate and make stupid comments like ‘I’m not into hardcore feminism.’
If I hadn’t gone into acting, I would have been one of those weird runaways on Hollywood Boulevard. No, it’d be uglier. I’d probably be dead.
On Courtney Love – I loved her before. She would just get naked on stage, and you could tell with her body, she didn’t give a fuck. It was so hot! She was like, ‘damn!’ But now it’s quite a drastic change. People just applaud her new change. They’re like, ‘Yes, she finally got some really attractive clothes, and she’s doing her hair.’ And I’m like, ‘What are you talking about!’ It’s so sad!
On Marilyn Manson – I hate the things they preach. They found that gimmick sells. The fact that they’re making money off all these teenage kids who actually believe in their message is disgusting.
