  • "Before I got Gilmore Girls, I was modeling. I went in for a call and was told, "Sweetie, you need to lose two inches off those hips". I was 14. So I just replied, 'I have more jobs than I can do. I'm in high school. I can't go to all the trouble of losing the two inches, so I'll pass.' Someone might tell you to lose weight, but you can say no."
