I believe, and I hope this is true — Australia came up with Australia Day as a way to celebrate my birthday. So thank you. Y'all are very kind.
I don't know if a trip to Australia is really better than a car. Because if you think about, if you give someone a car they can drive to Australia.
It's actually very hard to move around Hollywood with all the Australians here. Not because it's crowded or anything, but because they drive on the wrong side of the road.
Whenever we go ice-skating she spins in reverse.
She learned more about me by reading my book, and I learned a little more from reading her book. Now we mostly communicate with each other by writing books. My next book is called Please Don't Forget to Fill the Ice Cube Trays, and she's working on Do We Have Any AAA Batteries?
It was somewhere between difficult and liberating. It was defibrillating.
First of all I wasn't joking that it would be a miracle. It really would be a miracle if I got pregnant swimming in that pool.
I get a lot of emails from people who tell me that I gave them the courage to be themselves. That's such an amazing feeling. When you're afraid of what other people might think about you, it's hard to grow as a person, so I'm proud I was able to let that idea go. I love breaking through barriers, whether it's with my career or with my car. I don't like barriers in general.
I can't solve everyone's problems, so I just focus on what I can do, which is make someone smile or laugh. And of course, dancing never hurts. I end up being so inspired by those guests — they're really remarkable.
The disease grows where there is a lack of education and compassion, whether it's in Africa or Australia or the US If I can use my celebrity to shine a light or take a stand for those less fortunate, I will. I think it's the least we could do.
I think that would be great. She still has a few pantsuits she left at the White House from last time she lived there.
I guess. I remember wanting to make my mother laugh. That's how this whole crazy thing got started. So yes. True.
I think people should dance whether they're really good at it or really bad at it. Because either way I'll put them on TV.
I'm funky and low-heeled on the show, but you should see me when I get home and relax — I'm all sprayed, buffed, and stiletto heeled.
First of all, I don't think of it as 15 times removed — I think of it as 15 times closer than anyone else. And yes, duh. I'm the obvious choice.
I would just tell her that I married the one and only love of my life, and everyone should be so lucky to have that opportunity.
I think there's a misconception that being vegan is difficult or isn't delicious. I love what I eat. And think about it, everyone I know either has or grew up with pets, and they were a huge source of joy. We see the beauty and unconditional love and distinct personality of our dogs or cats, but somehow people don't realise that the same qualities exist in every cow, horse, and chicken. We are so removed from where our food comes from. Once you make that connection, eating animal products just doesn't make sense. It's bad for the planet, it's bad for our health — it's just not a compassionate or sustainable way to live. I realise it's an adjustment for people, and I'm not saying everyone has to be vegan today, but it's never been easier to be a vegan and we can all benefit from it.
It is instinct. And a jigger of tequila. Every day I get to sit around with a team of people and we look for new things that move or inspire us, or make us laugh. We figure if we respond to it, the audience will too.
Look, I don't want to keep bringing up the fact that Michelle cheated, because I've moved on. But yes, physical fitness is obviously important, because if she had been more in shape, maybe she wouldn't have needed to cheat. I think we all learned a valuable lesson.
That's the motto for my producers and writers. Because they are smart and like a challenge. But my real motto is actually "Be Kind To One Another" and I try to do that every day in my own life.
Of course I don't expect kangaroos in the main street. But I do expect to see them boxing.
