I couldn’t tell you why, but I have a sinister obsession with the Victoria’s Secret Angels. Yes, they’re wonderfully pretty, and have insane bodies, and all that stuff, but I find myself kind of intrigued by whether or not they’re real people. Are they aliens?

I’m quite happy that that experience was accelerated for me. I’m glad I made money, in other words. And I’m glad I got married.”
