Personal Quotes

I feel like I was born to do this... I started working professionally as soon as I could, doing weddings and things like that in high school, while everyone else was having keg parties. I just felt destined to do it and really committed and driven; it was something that just felt right all my life.

Honestly, I remember most the look on my husband's face. The other thing I remember is when they were reading off the [nominees'] names and they read Donna [Donna Murphy]'s name, I was smiling, and he leaned over into my ear and he said, 'If they don't read your name, the smile you have on your face now is perfect for when the camera hits you. Just keep that smile, it looks very good.' And I looked at him and I was like, 'Like this?' and he was like, 'Yeah, just keep that if you don't win.' - When asked what she remembers the most from the night she won the Tony.
