Rebecca Romijn Quotes

"I still can't believe that I walk down the runway once a year in
high heels and underwear for Victoria's Secret. And that this is worthy of being broadcast on the Sony JumboTron in Times Square."

"Sometimes I
find myself having to try extra hard to be goofy and disarming to prove to people that, yeah, I pick my nose just like you do."

"When my husband kisses my ears. My ears turn me on like nothing else, they must be my most erogenous zone. Just having my ears kneaded is like a full body massage."

"I'm not for gratuitous nudity, but if there's humor, I don't have a problem."

"I'm a little top heavy, so I have to pay attention to that area. I think it was from my y
ears of swimming in school when I was a kid and it just overdeveloped my upper body. In fact, when I started modeling, my back was so developed, I could not fit into any dresses."

" I don't know where its coming from, but I think studios are finally realizing that people want to see girls who can kick butt as well as guys can."

-Rebecca Romijn

Romijn started her modeling career in 1991. She modeled for the swimsuit issue of Sports Illustrated, Victoria's Secret, bebe, Miller Litebeer, and for Anna Molinari Runway, along with the famous Super-Models such as Claudia Schiffer, Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford, and Christy Turlington. She also was the host of MTV's House of Style from 1998 to 2000. Rebecca is a fixture on annual lists of the world's most beautiful women by publications such as Maxim (2003–2007), (2001–2003, 2005–2006) and FHM (2000–2005). She also appeared as a guest in the animated talk show Space Ghost Coast to Coast in an episode titled "Chinatown."

In 2000's X-Men, Romijn had her first major movie role as Mystique; she returned to the role in 2003's sequel X2: X-Men United, and again for X-Men: The Last Stand (2006). In these movies her costume consisted of blue makeup and some strategically placed prosthetics on her otherwise nude body. In X2: X-Men United she shows up in a bar in one scene in her "normal" look, and also in X-Men: The Last Stand, she appears as a dark-haired "de-powered" Mystique. She had her first leading role in Brian De Palma's Femme Fatale (2002). She also has starred in movies such as Rollerball, The Punisher and Godsend. She played the leading role in Pepper Dennis, a short-lived TV series on The WB. This series showcased Romijn's talents for comedy, singing, modeling, drama, and adventure.

In January 2007, Romijn made her first appearance on the ABC series Ugly Betty as a full time regular. She plays Alexis Meade, a male-to-female transsexual and the sibling of lead character Daniel Meade. In April 2008, however, it was reported that Romijn would only be appearing as a recurring character in season 3 due to a change in direction by the writing staff. In November 2007, Romijn made a guest appearance on the ABC series Carpoolers, where she played the ex-wife of the character Laird, played by her real-life husband Jerry O'Connell.

Romijn starred in the 2009 ABC series Eastwick, reuniting her with her former Pepper Dennis co-star, Lindsay Price, before ABC cancelled the show on 9 November 2009.

desperate for her breasts to keep their shape during her pregnancy with twins
I can't move anymore ... I'm a beached whale! I have not been without a bra this entire pregnancy. I refuse. I'm not taking any chances. I'm determined to keep the puppies up!

revealing she wants to name one of her children Dolly, as a tribute to Dolly Parton
I have been a Dolly fan all of my life. She is a wonderful woman. I really connect with her music and I can't think of a better role model for my children. She was honoured I had chosen the name Dolly.
