Penn Badgley


“I love being married [to musician Domino Kirke]- I’m so thankful to not be concerned with trying to intrigue and charm people. Our culture is enmeshed in trying to find a partner. And I think it has a lot less to do with finding the other person than with finding contentment in yourself.” Cosmopolitan Magazine

“My story is not one I could’ve ever expected. I never thought I’d have to loose everything to gain even more. But I lost my spot and I gained a husband who roots for me, a beautiful baby boy who looks at me like I am his entire world. Two and a half years ago when I walked out of that NBC building, I was in a fog, not knowing that so many of us lose things we think are important, and we have no idea that something better is right there. I’m from the South, and there’s a saying: “It’s not a setback; it’s a setup for something else.” That loss set me up for, yes, a dream job but also my baby, my husband, my family. I just couldn’t see it coming.” People Magazine


Jennifer Garner


When asked how Jennifer Garner would describe her high-school self she replied, “Band-geek chic. I was so not one of the pretty girls that I just bypassed insecurity and didn’t see myself as attractive at all. It was not part of my life. [But] I felt good about myself back then! That is the lucky trick. Looks weren’t a big deal in my family. I don’t think that my parents ever said, “You’re pretty,” and so we just didn’t think about it.” People Magazine

“Words clearly are so powerful, and they can be used to hurt. I think there’s something to taking a word that has so much baggage for people and deflating it and letting it be what it is. It does take some of the emotion out of it and let it not mean so much, and I think there’s power in doing that- and letting this character be beautiful and have sexual relationships and friendships and a great family and all these things, that “fat” can mean that too. It doesn’t just mean someone in their basement, eating Cheetos. It means a lot of different things, and the full breadth of the word doesn’t have to be so hateful.”  Adweek
