- The narrative needs to change. Asian-American actresses don't want to be the damsels in distress anymore. We don't want to be saved, especially by a white man.
- We want to see women in more power positions, not just in front of the screen but behind the screen as well.
- I think the whole movement of #MeToo is not just calling out the sexual harassers, which is really important, but also crying out that we want equal pay, equal representation, equal opportunities, and that we want to see more female directors and photographers.
- My parents, in their 40s, moved to a different country, started a business, bought a house, didn't speak the language, raised two kids - it's kind of amazing.
- We'd only speak Korean at home. They [parents] wouldn't let us have sleepovers and sent us away to Korean church camp during the summers. We had weird food concoctions, too, so instead of spaghetti bolognese, we had rice bolognese with kimchi.
- There are these creative shows, all on cable, that are just so daring and out there. That's the stuff I really want to be a part of, like with 'Sucker Punch' and 'Hangover 2'. Those movies didn't hold back. They really went for it.
- It's so important to work with material you can really mold and milk and create and evolve.
- If you feel good about what you put on your face - or body - that's really putting your best foot forward.
- I view my career like a rubber-band ball in that every role is a new experience building toward something bigger.
- I didn't want to be known as the reality-show star trying to be an actress, so I kept a lot of the failed auditions to myself.
