Jamie Luner Quotes

You can sleep with a blonde, you can sleep with a brunette, but you`ll never get any sleep with a redhead!

I love playing the vamp, and I get sent out (to audition) for a lot of that stuff, maybe because I do it well.

It was a lot easier to hide behind the character of the sassy, sexy vixen, whereas this time, I did a lot more tapping into my own feelings, and allowing that to come through.

When you`re 22 or 23, you think the world revolves around you, and I felt that way for a long time. But I just turned 30, and I love it! You realize, `Whoa, baby, you ain`t all that.` And you`re not! You`re just a woman out there doing something she loves.

I`m getting to know myself. I focused this year on nothing but my craft. I`ve dealt with a lot of producers and executives, speaking up for what I need and what I want. I never did that before.

It`s amazing the hours you pull when you`re the lead of a show.

When I tested for Lane, I was the straight girl; I had a nice little suit and jacket on. Then I went into the bathroom and let the hair down, put on a slinky dress, sauntered past all those girls in the waiting room, and said, `Okay. I`m ready.``

I don`t do diets. They don`t work. Being fit is about a whole way of life. If you move your body it will process what you put in it, even if it`s cake. `Everything in moderation` is a cliche, but some cliches really mean something. Only you know what goes in your mouth and how much you move your body when no one`s watching. If you`ve got time to sit in front of the television, to go out to dinner with your friends, or to read a book, you`ve got time to work out and take care of yourself.

Hiking is the best workout!... You can hike for three hours and not even realize you`re working out. And, hiking alone lets me have some time to myself.

It`s very difficult to find the one thing I like the most, but I`d have to say the people, firstly; a truly talented group of people who are very warm.

I always find similarities with the character and myself. Of course, it`s never exact but unless you can find similarities it is very hard to connect with what you are doing. But in this role in particular, I find to have the most similarities to who I am mainly because she`s a real woman in the world out there.

Well, honestly when I started this role, there was no time to do much of anything but get my script, learn my lines, and show up to work. It happened that fast. But during the first few episodes I was able to talk to some FBI agents as well as the other cast members who have had many years to do research and every day I learn something new. So the research never stops.

Peyton was a lot of fun and I just went to work ready for anything. I loved it. I really had such a good time doing it.

(Speaking of, Jamie is loving her diva-to-diva action with friend Heather Locklear as their characters clash on-screen.) We get along great. She`s totally silly like I am. And she`s a producer this year, so when I have a problem with things, I go to her. But when she gets p*ssed at me, she says, `Be careful, or I`ll give you a really long speech that makes no sense.`

Cooking is a huge passion of mine. In the future, I`d like to own my own restaurant.

When I appear on TV shows, I always have to borrow clothes. I`m always expected to look like Peyton, but that`s just not me. I don`t have mini skirts or little pointy bras. Although I do have plenty of sexy underwear in my wardrobe...

I`ve seen an episode or two of Melrose. It`s...well, it`s Melrose Place. You don`t bite the hand that feeds you.

The human body is a very beautiful thing and it should be exposed. You shouldn`t be ashamed of it.

I missed life in the 1960s, so it has always been a dream of mine to live in a trailer and experience life on the road. A few years ago, I bought a 27-foot, 1978 Airstream from the Recycler in Atlanta. My boyfriend at the time and I shipped our belongings to Los Angeles, jammed everything else we could fit into overhead compartments on the Airstream, and drove. It was amazing because we had no schedules to keep and we could have a different front yard every morning - from the Grand Canyon to Bryce Canyon to the Redwood Forest. Now that I`m in Los Angeles, I found a beautiful spot in Malibu to park it. Whenever my schedule permits, I stay in my Airstream for the weekend. It`s instant camping - a little piece of heaven.

I love to look glamorous, but I couldn`t possibly keep that up. Its too high- maintenance. I`m a wash-and-go kind of girl.

It`s crazy! One minute you`re working in a restaurant, and the next minute you`re in a TV series with everyone asking how you feel playing the bad girl, and you`re going, `Well, I know how to julienne carrots really well.`

Talking about her role on Profiler, as Agent Rachel Burke: It`s a wonderful opportunity to play a character totally different from anything I`ve been seen in before.

I have always wanted to play Lola in Damn Yankees and every girl in A Chorus Line. I was thinking of doing Chorus Line as a one-woman show. I`m going to play every character. I know every role. I can do it.

I`ve never worked harder in my life! Fifteen-hour days, going home and having four more hours of work studying lines for the next day. Always having to be on. I said to someone recently, "I feel like it is my wedding day every day."

I go camping with my boyfriend - having nothing other than ourselves and the birds to talk with is most relaxing.

I love camping. My boyfriend and I are avid campers. We`ve been all over the country. I love to camp under the stars with him. It`s very romantic. You get very in tune with the natural environment - you know, the birds and the bees and all that. It gets me very calm inside, because this acting business can make me crazy. I need to take some time to myself when I`m not insecure and thinking about what this or that person is thinking about me. I can`t live that way all the time. How can you not get self-conscious? So going out there and being at one with nature is my way of escaping from it all.

I`d have to say my closest friends are guys. That goes back to my tomboy days. I like to throw a ball and be active and run around, you know. So I just find myself among the men.

Because it`s prime time there`s a rule that you can`t really show anything. As for me personally, though, I`d only take my clothes off for a film if it made sense in the plot.

I think it`s only bonus. You`ve got people who are already tuned in and enjoy the show. My character is only going to enhance that, hopefully. My character has got a lot more levity: she`s a little bit brassy. She comes from a family of six older brothers, so I imagine she can hold her own. - about her character Rachel on Profiler.

There`s always pressure. But being thin should be the goal. The goal is should be being healthy and strong in mind, body, and spirit. That comes from having a healthy outlook on exercise and on life in general. I think that`s been lost, because everyone wants the quick fix.

I`m proud of being toned, strong and fit. Most women can`t do one pull-up. I can do six!

When I turned 16, my mama was tired of being a stage mother taking me to auditions. She said, `If you get a car, you can take yourself.`

On Melrose Place, it was probably all the lying that was going on: sleeping with people I shouldn`t have and not owning up to it. I did a lot of lying on that show.

On Savannah, I would have to say it was sleeping with my sister`s fiancé. Smuggling money, lying, cheating-that all comes second.

I`m adding a new character to the show, not stepping into her shoes. I don`t ever compare myself to someone else: if other people have, that`s their worry.

I don`t know that I have one moment being the most touching.

My music taste is quite eclectic. It depends on my mood. But isn`t that true for all of us?

Fame definitely has its effects. A lot is relative. You gain so much with fame, and in the same respect you give up quite a bit - the most precious being my anonymity, which I didn`t realize until it was gone.

Robert Davi has been a tremendous help to me in getting my feet wet as a profiler. He takes his work so very seriously. He spends a lot of time and energy working out his moments and beats. He cares so much to make this show good and he`s truly a sweet man.

It`s very difficult to find the one thing I like the most, but I`d have to say the people, firstly; a truly talented group of people who are very warm. They have made it a lot of fun to work on the show. We laugh a lot. We play a lot. I also really love the challenge that this role has brought to me.

I worked with a director on the very first episode of Savannah. His name was Richard Lang. He`s been in this business for God knows how long and he recently passed away. He`s an amazing man and touched me and taught me a lot.

I pride myself on being truly an individual.

I enjoy food of the orient. It`s a lot of prep work and less actual cooking time. I love to feed people so I would imagine cooking someone`s favorite dish would really make me happy.

Reactions that often give me chills, and bring me tears of joy. It`s been received so warmly, and the smiles sent my way say it all. Everyone is very happy with this new season. I`m truly blessed.

When I was a little girl, I wanted to deliver babies. And then I wanted to be a dancer. And then, I have always wanted to act and then I became a chef and I really love singing.

I`m enjoying taking some time off right now. I`m not auditioning for anything at all. I work for nine months of the year, with an unbelievable schedule - five days a week from six in the morning to eight or nine at night - and there are always a million people around, all wanting a piece of me. I need to have time away from people, to rejuvenate.

Knowing me, they wanted to enhance the show with a little bit more humor, not have it be so heavy all the time.

I was playing Peyton, this really manipulative woman on Savannah, who is not exactly a role model - not someone I would want to be like - but everybody who watched loved her. It`s kind of scary.

I think men are a different species from women entirely.

I have a lot more energy and I`m happier when I`m exercising.

I`ve let two to four days go by, but I don`t beat myself up about it. Rather than feeling guilty about not exercising, what happens is I lose my clarity. I`m not as energized, not as clear, not as sharp. It reminds me why I do all this. I`m feeling like crap, remembering how good I felt last Thursday when I did my regimen.

I didn`t miss acting, because at the time I was very bitter about the business, needed to do something that I could feel passionate about, that would satisfy all my senses: my sight, my smell, my taste, my touch, my need to nurture, my love of colors. Of course, once I started doing that, and getting more and more passionate about it, I lost my desperation, and people in the business were more attracted to me.

You know what`s sad: Here I am on a show that`s about violence and serial killers, things that are truly destructive. But that much more widely accepted than sex, which is so important. Sexuality is right up there with eating, breathing, and sleeping. Yet it`s such a taboo. I don`t understand it.

I`m taking singing lessons,and plan to put on a one-woman show to be the new Shirley MacLaine or Liza Minnelli. Singing. Dancing. I love it. Okay I`m not the best singer, and I`m not the best dancer, but I can still put on a show, right? I`m so scared, and I can`t wait to do it.

I really wasn`t the best student. I excelled in drama and art, and I got along with my teachers. But my problem was that I was a bit of a social butterfly. I loved to talk a lot - although I wasn`t a party girl. I preferred to hang out at home with my mom.

I like to party, sure. But my kind of good time is not going to a nightclub or a bar that`s just a meat market. I don`t go to those kinds of places. I prefer to have a big camp fire at home and have all my friends round and share a big bottle of wine.

(On playing football in school) I gave it up because, in one game I was doing really well, but then I fell and hit my head and I wanted to stop, but they wouldn`t let me. Then I ended up scoring a point for the other team and everyone was getting at me, and I was like, "I can`t handle this pressure!"

Because it`s prime time there`s a rule that you can`t really show anything. As for me personally, though, I`d only take my clothes off for a film if it made sense in the plot

I always find similarities with the character and myself. Of course, it`s never exact but unless you can find similarities it is very hard to connect with what you are doing. But in this role in particular, I find to have the most similarities to who I am mainly because she`s a real woman in the world out there. She`s unlike the vamp characters I`ve played the last four or five years on Aaron Spelling`s shows. The producers often times listen carefully when I speak. The next script I read, I`ll find things I`ve said and done. I love to work out, and that`s a common for Rachel. They have her cooking very well, which is something I do. She can definitely be one of the guys, as well as very feminine. As strong as she is, she is vulnerable as well; very much like myself.
