Personal quotes from Piper Perabo
"Any time I'm playing opposite somebody in a love relationship, if I know them it's easier, because I know how much I can trust them."
I think that you love who you love, and there are people who you love that people aren't going to understand why, and that sort of doesn't really matter.
To me, a great love story is a great love story, and it doesn't matter what gender is involved.
