Being called bombshell:
"I was excited because I'm in these publications and I would find all these new words to my vocabulary that I've never heard before, and some of them I still don't understand. Bombshell? Is he saying something bad? What does that mean? That I bombed in the film? Nobody can tell me where this bombshell adjective comes from."
"That's the one part of American culture I hate. The concept of going into a room full of people who are sweating and inhaling their sweat while I'm painfully driving myself into exhaustion . . . I don't understand it. I walk on the beach or ride a bicycle or jump around my house, but I will not participate in that collective hysteria."
On her friend Penelope Cruz:
"There isn't just friendship, but admiration and respect for her; I feel happy when she works, I'm her biggest fan and the first one to go to the cinema when her movies premiere. She is very talented, with a certain magic that makes her out of this world."
On independent movie productions:
"I can play just another beautiful girl, but where is that gonna take me? I can have the money and buy all these things, but that's not why I am an actress. I am an actress because I love what I do. I'm not crazy about how much money I get paid... it's not about the money."
On the so-called Latin revolution:
You see, I am not the one breaking the Latin barrier you're the one breaking the Latin barrier. You're the one who put it up, and you're the one who's tearing it down now. All I have to do is be who I am."
On fashion & style:
"My image here (in the U.S.) has been associated with style and fashion. I've made a conscious choice to put a lot of effort into it--not only because it's creative for me, but to break the stereotype of Mexicans ... it's important for me to show that we don't wear huaraches and sombreros all day long."
On the H&M bikini poster campaign:
"I didn't have a movie and I thought I might never work again so I took the campaign."
On her first driving experiences in the US:
"One time, I was going to Santa Monica, and I drove for hours. They told me to get on the freeway, and of course, I stayed on the freeway. I called my friend and said, "I see a sign on the hill that says MONTEREY . . ." I had to stop the car and ask someone, "How do I get to Burbank from San Francisco?"
On losing the 1996 MTV Movie Award for Best Kiss to the Species character:
"I'm a helluva kisser, but I can't beat the tongue going through some guy's head and killing him."
On her USO trip to Kosovo (Thanksgiving 1999):
"I've kissed thousands of soldiers today. It's not a bad job."
