I wanted to be a part of the Disney history.
When I first came here, Hollywood was very closed-minded.
This is a Disney animated feature; it’s eternal, it’s history. What’s there to think about’
I’m not really this rock’n’roll chick.
I slipped at a bus stop; I went one way and my hair went the other. That was the end of my wig.
I was very young. I thought I knew a lot and I really didn’t. I trusted the wrong people.
I love to sing, so I just figured that I was going to sing or something.
I’m of Filipino, Spanish, and Chinese descent, and was raised on Hawaii.
As an actress, you’re already disregarded for a lot of the parts by the people who are setting up those shows. You don’t need your agent to be doing the same.
I can’t sit on grass without a blanket.
Doors open because you’re beautiful, but I wouldn’t cultivate beauty to the exclusion of brains.
I kind of fell into acting, but I have sung and trained since I was in the eighth grade.
If there’s a Disney animated feature based in Hawaii, I knew I had to be part of it. I’m very proud to be from Hawaii. There was no question the role was mine.
Jason Lee is the most famous actor from Hawaii I can think of.
I like theme parks. The fastest roller coaster I’ve ever been on is at a casino in Nevada.
