On Hugh:
"I told Hugh Hefner, ‘I have this crazy boyfriend.’ And Hef was like, ‘You’re not going anywhere with a crazy boyfriend,’ and so he put me in a mansion in Bel-Air with an opera singing Chinese maid, and I was driving a Bentley, and a friend of mine came by and was like, ‘What is going on? Why are you living in this mansion?’ And I was like, ‘Isn’t this what happens when people move to LA?’"

On her past relationships:
"The rock-star thing became very destructive, like, wow. I didn’t know what I was doing. I just kind of became that thing. The hair, that rock-star kind of lifestyle, just living a dream. It kind of took over. It started out very innocent and then I turned into a cartoon character. And I started to feel like a cartoon character."

On her children and the sex tape:
"I don’t know if they’ve seen it, but they know about it. They know about everything. Stupid Internet. I don’t know why everyone is so impressed with it."

On her pixie cut:
"At first I thought I looked like Anderson Cooper or like a Q-tip or something. But now I feel really powerful. I have a friend who is an awesome, studly man, and he goes, ‘You know, some women cut their hair and it makes them look even more masculine, but you look even more feminine.’ I thought it would be weird having sex with short hair but then I kind of got into the mode."
