On dating (she's rumored to be seeing Dancing With The Stars pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy):"I really have never had a serious relationship in the industry. I'm just having fun. Obviously I have a very busy schedule at this time in my life, and I don't put relationships as a priority."
On the fallout from her first Sports Illustrated cover:
"After my first Sports Illustrated cover, I felt terrible about myself for a solid month. Every single guy I met was either married or about to be married, and I felt like I was their bachelor present or something. I'm not a toy, I'm a human. I'm not here to be used. I am a grown woman, and you need to figure your shit out."
