I have a mouth and I'm not afraid to use it.
I'll starve to death before I'll cook for myself.
I need to hold onto my soul and my integrity, and I can't compromise that.
You want to go to work with people you like and where everyone is having fun.
If I really buckle down, I think one day I could be a very good actress.
I can cook, but I also want everything to look beautiful on the plate - then I get upset when people eat it. Everyone just tears through it, and that makes me sad. It's not a rewarding experience for me to cook.
In New York, especially, so much of your life is spent on the streets. You don't always want to be driving around in an SUV with a security guard. You want to be able to walk to a restaurant; you want to go and do things.
