Jason Segel: "[She is] one of the guys. She's so easy to hang out with. She's the most feminine tomboy you could ever hope to meet. She's a tomboy in a dress."

Anne Hathaway: "[When we were acting together] she just fucking got on with it. She'd just jump off the diving board. I'd stop, look at the water and then jump. And suddenly I just thought, her way looks so much more fun."
