With some artists, I've noticed that after their songs have been licensed, on their next album you can totally hear they're trying to write a song for 'Grey's Anatomy' and it doesn't work. It's just one of those things that has to feel genuine to last a long time.Priscilla Ahn

I'm nearly always at home at the weekends; that's important for every working woman today, not just me. I don't encourage people to come in at the weekend and work; I encourage people to go home and create great families.Angela Ahrendts

I have to say: 'Couples Retreat,' when we got that script, was a work in progress. What you see onscreen is not at all what you saw in the first draft.

That's fun as well.Malin Akerman
