"I maintain my sanity by keeping my distance"
"I am very adamant about keeping my private life private. I don't prefer to talk about my family"

"I've stolen a couple of hearts and they are in my private collection!"
"I really do love Diana Ross; I grew up listening to her records. I grew up in a little town in Mexico, so while we got the music, we never got the experience of watching her"

"I have a small house so I borrow everything except art, that's what I love"
"For me, I have to say that I like to work a lot too, but I like not working better. The perfect scenario is when you just worked and you know something's coming up, then you have four, five, six months off. But you know you're going to have a job later"
