On James Franco calling her a "TasmanianDevil" on "Late Show With Letterman": "How did Itake it? I let James know that a whirling dervish is a more flatteringcomparison than a Tasmanian devil. I called him, and we e-mailed a bit."
On her overall Oscar experience:"In the grand scheme of things, I got to have a once-in-a-lifetimeopportunity. I met great people, wore beautiful clothes. And I got to put on ashow. I don't see a downside. Anyone who disliked my personality probablydisliked my personality before the Oscars."
On her past relationship with ex-boyfriendRaffaello Faollieri, an Italian real estate developer who was arrested forfraud: "There's something very addictive about people pleasing.It's a thought pattern and a habit that feels really, really good until itbecomes desperate. It's one of the reasons that relationship ended. I wasn'table to grow or foster anything. I think a lot of girls have that story. It's abig moment when you step away from that and say, 'I'm going to be exactly who Iam. And I'm going to be brave enough to only be with someone who wants me theway I am.'"

On her current boyfriend of two and a halfyears, Adam Shulman: "So far, it's worked out great," shesays matter-of-factly, observing that she used to get caught up in theintensity of a romance. "Which has its wonderful side, of course, but alsoit was exhausting, and sometimes it would freak me out. Mellow doesn't alwaysmake for a good story, but it makes for a good life."
On going au naturel -- a lot -- in "Loveand Other Drugs": "I don't get hung up on nudity. To me, itwas just an extension of who [the character] was. It was real."
