Diablo Cody quotes

The primary job for women in Hollywood is still super-attractive actress. That is the most high-profile women's job in Hollywood.

To enjoy being famous, you need to have a screw loose.

I can't write at night. For me, I'm programmed to believe that nighttime is for relaxation.

I don't know why, but I've always been a sucker for roller coasters in movies.

I've come to find more satisfaction and enjoyment in writing screenplays over the years because that's what I do primarily now.

You know, I did not like being famous. It was a stressful and ugly time, and I'm glad it's over.

I absolutely relate to being alone in squalor, trying to come up with something adequate. I relate to that, and I've been known to crawl out of bed and drink out of a 2-liter bottle of Diet Coke.

There's a weird cloud around you when you're recognizable. It was a brief window for me. I think you have to have a pathological need for attention of any type, negative or positive, to thrive in that kind of situation. And I only want compliments.

And I think I'm an adrenaline junkie, and there's nothing that will spike your adrenaline more than sitting in a theater and listen to an audience react to something you've written.

Fact: The new '90210' is cooler than the old '90210.' It's the lithe, streamlined Skipper to the elder series' venerable Barbie. Gone are the traditional parents - they've been replaced by a hipster mom n' pop who get busted necking in the car.

I actually have two children now, and sometimes I wonder if that's it. Because they do make writing and directing more complicated and more difficult, especially now that they're very young.

Personally, I consider 'Titanic' the most brilliant example of successful counterprogramming; the film actually countered itself by embedding an epic chick flick within a classic disaster movie.

Speaking of Twitter, I don't even know if I composed a blog entry in 2009, as I was too busy parceling my every thought into cute 140-character sound bites. I used to only worry about being pithy for a living; now some of my best lines are wasted on a free app!

You make a first impression and people never forget it. If people want to think of me as the wacky 'Juno' lady forever, I could think of worse ways to be labeled.

I feel like I'm part of a generation of people who are stuck in the past and are really self-absorbed. I mean, we're actually taking pictures of ourselves and posting them on Facebook, and keeping in touch with people that should have been out of our lives 15 years ago.

There's something magical about spending a Sunday night watching real people at a deli, then watching fake people pretending to be real on TV, then engaging in (arguably) false interaction with (arguably) real people on the Internet. Never at any prior point in time has this been possible.

I know white clothing is supposed to enhance that summer glow, but writers don't tan.

As a kid, I spent every summer bent over a stack of books, obsessively writing detailed reports on each one.

I don't have a terrible singing voice, but I also wouldn't call it 'good.' I can carry a tune.

I just want to be able to keep my house and pay for my son's school tuition in Los Angeles.
