Memorable Quotes (on/off the set):
  • "'Where I grew up, I wasn’t even close to being cool. My family lived in the smallest, most rural town in Florida, called Melbourne Beach, and it was an outdoors-y community where beauty was all about being tanned and blonde. But I was chubby, awkward and fair-skinned with dark hair - and a 10p-sized gap between my teeth. [...]
  • My mom was a big champion for me when I was growing up. She was very classic and reserved and manners mattered most to her. So we didn’t speak much about physical beauty – it wasn’t so important. She was very, very poor and homeless during the Depression – she was 40 years older than me – so having chubby kids was the greatest thing in the world to her. That’s why she had three fridges!"
  • "My life changed when, ironically, I won a modelling contest at the local shopping plaza. I was the most surprised at my win. I was laughed at when my picture appeared in the paper. At school the next day the other kids were asking, ‘what kind of contest was that, surely there’s a mistake?’"

On Her Name:
  • My parents are from Montréal. (It's common in French) the j was a twist on it. I'm a child of the '70s. It's my given name ... until I was about 10 everybody tried to tell me how to spell it.

On her future:
  • Theater is one of my loves, so I'm open for that after 11½ years of working in prime-time TV, for 'ER,' 'The West Wing,' and 'CSI.' I've never been to college, and I think about that. But I kept putting it off, and I am also thinking about having a child, and that's really important. Also, I want to do a lot of traveling and surfing - two of my hobbies. Maybe the universe will get tired of me. I have a one-woman little play about Dusty Springfield opening February 2nd, at the Renberg Theater in Hollywood.
