“I’ve had a chip on my shoulder since ‘The Princess Diaries’ when my nude scene was cut, so I’ve been trying to make up for lost time ever since then. … When you’re in the early throws of passion and lust and love, you spend a lot of time unclothed. The beginning of our characters relationship is in that moment.”
“Hang on—I have been Jake’s onscreen love interest for years, alright. Let’s keep the conversation to me and only me, otherwise I’m gonna get nasty. Don’t get Ella Enchanted pissed off.”
