I don't think anything can prepare you for a crew to come in and actually film you as yourself. It's kind of frightening to think that all of a sudden people are going to know how you are, and how you act on a day-to-day basis.— Elisha Cuthbert
The most jaw-dropping Elisha Cuthbert quotes that are easy to memorize and remember
I'm into eating salads and fish. I've always been a big fish eater. I like fruit. I have friends that you have to force-feed them the good stuff. I'm lucky I actually like it. Brussel sprouts and all that.
I don't ever want to be doing the same sort of thing, I never want to be typecast, because I have way too much to give to be sort of, to always be the hot chick in the movie.
I've always wanted to shave my head for a role because I've wanted to play a character who had a shaved head. I don't know what the fascination is.
I'm a regular Canadian girl. I enjoy staying home. In the summer I've got a garden. I'm very much a homebody, a normal, family-oriented girl. But I do have this other incredible side of my life that involves acting and traveling.
Life is funny and it is interesting how we make it as serious as possible.
The celebrity body I most admire is Madonna's.
She has the most incredible physique - and the woman's in her 50s!
I don't like anything that's too confining.
I'm sort of a control freak, so anything that makes me feel like I'm out of control is a bit uncomfortable. But you know how it is, sometimes it's good to live a little!
I think that, back in the day, there used to be a lot of horror films that kind of had a checklist of what went into making the 'perfect horror film', and I think now people are raising the bar in the industry, as far as the types of horror films that are being made.
The pressure to be pretty? I set, you know, boundaries and goals for myself.
I try not to compare myself to anyone else because I will never be anyone else except myself. So I try and stay true to me, and hopefully the right projects will come my way.
That's when you know a horror film delivers - when you're walking out of the theater going 'Oh my God!' You can't get the images out of your mind.
I guess there's a vulnerability in seeing a female character trying to get out of something really drastic.
You know, I've never been much of a method actor.
I feel like, with every project I go in extremely prepared and I like to have a good time.
I find myself maybe just pushing myself to create characters that are a little outside the box, and if that sort of gets the critics talking, then I can take it.
I was bitten by a brown recluse spider.
It got me as I was coming out of the shower. I'd never seen that kind of spider before, I'm from Canada and we don't get those types up there.
When I was 20, I thought I was 30 - but I was so far from it.
When you're young, you want everything to happen now. As you mature, you can look back and see all the great things you achieved with time and patience.
Some of the things I've seen a lot of my female-actress friends who are relatively famous receive - I've seen some hideous things. Like some really, really bad things... like, the FBI should be contacted immediately.
I've always been against trying to make a movie like another movie.
That's lame. It's already been done, so why do it again?
You can make a feature that makes millions but only so many people see it.
With a hit TV show, every week you'll have 16 million - 20 million people watching you.
I think there's a lot of elements that go into making a really awesome horror film and that's like putting together like a real good group of people that you love to watch them either live or die.
I do believe that when you know better, you do better.
You know what was wrong about the last relationship, and hopefully you will do better the next time.
I do try and stay away from the stereotype and getting typecast.
It's amazing that for actors mostly, it's a risk to attach yourself to a film that you don't know whether or not it's going to even be made and if you sign on, in doing so, who else is going to be in the movie with you.
To sit through a film where you're just unmotivated to be interested in a character is probably the worst thing that could ever happen.
I watch what I eat obviously. I'm not a regular gym-goer but I'm conscious of it.
I don't like to play characters that are one note, and just the attractive girl in the film.
I know, it was a little bit out of control, but hey. It was all fun.
I Feel like I'm one of the Simpsons
I don't look in the mirror and think that I have flaws.
I actually look in the mirror and see me. I see a lot of different characters and a lot of different things.
I'm one of those low-maintenance people - let's get it done and get going.
It's not that painful to wax, but... I don't have time for it - just give me the razor.
I definitely believe in fate. And I believe what you put in is what you get in return. That's the way it's worked for me. As for the big picture - there's some sort of plan.
I tend to stay out of the public eye a little, compared to some of my peers.
I go into every film not just wanting to play the hot girl in the movie. It kills me.
I really know right from wrong and apply that to my life.
At home, I was the oldest of three. My role was to be the responsible one.
I just don't like showing everything I've got.
I don't want to look like I'm trying too hard to be sexy.
Yeah, I've gotten a few letters from prison.
As long as I can make an audience feel something, I don't care whether it's a good thing or bad thing, just to feel something is important to me.
I have lots of records, quite a collection, actually, that I stole from my mom.
I have the original 'Thriller' album and I have a really great 'Elton John's Greatest Hits,' and I also have a N.E.R.D. album. Records sound more original. They have more edge.
I think wardrobe is a really important part of making a movie and developing the character.
I think it's so wrong to play the victim.
There's too many brave women out there that just won't even tolerate it, you know?
The problem with TV now is that there's so much competition, that you're always on the chopping block.
A lot of people loved to hate my character on 24. I want to be the character people love to love.
I'm used to being someone else 10 months out of the year.
Celebrity or no celebrity, I think a lot of females deal with the fear of being abducted.
There's nothing more romantic than Italian food.
It's hard to be scared if you don't feel for a character, because you don't care if they die or live.
I think with comedy I get very sort of critical of myself and try and do the best I can and it doesn't come as second nature. I work at those kinds of films. It doesn't mean I can't do them - I've done two now, and I have a great time doing them, but I just find myself a little bit more neurotic.
I certainly realize that not only do I like the horror genre, but I'm getting really good at it and I'm having a good time making them.
I love horror films, so I guess it's one of those things where I find myself interested in the script.
I think, as an artist, whether you're making people laugh or cry or be frustrated or excited - the fact that you're generating some sort of emotion out of an audience is, to me, worth it.
