Kat Dennings some quotes.
Theres nothing else I would rather do, unless there was a profession that involved cuddling bunny rabbits and kittens all day for money.
Ive basically made a career out of my imagination. I feel very lucky.
I think its an important movie for teenagers to see. There was a time when I thought I was crazy but really I was just a teenager. Its important to realize youre not the only person going through it (On Charlie Bartlett (2007)).
Ive had people tell me to get Mystic Tan, blonde highlights, choppy haircuts, but Ive made a conscious decision not to cave.
I dont take crap from anyone, so that makes people think Im rebellious. Im not. Im just not a pushover.
