Rachel's top ten quotes chosen by Stipko:
1. People find out I'm an actress and I see that 'whore' look flicker across their eyes.
2. I find Hollywood really toxic.
3. I have absolutely no empathy for camels. I didn't care for being abused in the Middle East by those horrible, horrible, horrible creatures. They don't like people. It's not at all like the relationship between horses and humans.
4. I'm a bit superstitious about certain things, like what shoes to wear. If I wear the wrong shoes, the whole day may go wrong. Or if I don't get to the bottom of the stairs before the door closes - stupid little things like that. Then I also have all the normal ones, like don't walking under ladders and so on.
5. I'm not one for parties and stuff like that. I get a bit nervous around lots of people. Being invisible is what I really enjoy. That I find quite entertaining.
6. I've never felt uncomfortable with my level of fame. I don't get hassled. Maybe sometimes in a minor way, but New Yorkers are much too cool for that. The thing is, you choose to be an actress, but not to be a celebrity.
7. I don't do too well there. If you were brought up in London, where you can walk around everywhere and there are theaters, you can't really do LA. I couldn't make a life there. You're in a car all the time, and there are no seasons.
8. There's a lot of contemporary actresses I admire, but there's practically no one who's made a color movie whose career I'd want ... I don't feel very modern at all.
9. The celebrity thing... I don't want to sound as if I absolutely don't want it because that's not true. If you're in the entertainment business, you have to be honest. There's something alluring about it...
10. Los Angeles makes you feel ugly. I'm not going to pretend I haven't secretly wanted to be super-skinny, because all girls do.But I have a woman's body, not a boy's body. Most women do and should feel proud of their butts and their breasts and their bellies.
