Personal quotes from Denise Richards
"Doing love scenes is always awkward. I mean, it's just not a normal thing to go to work and lay in bed with your co-worker."
"I found out early I could make more money modeling than I could waitressing and scooping Haagen-Dazs. But I always wanted to be an actress."
"I'm spontaneous. I love going from one thing to something else and not knowing what I'm going to do next."
