On her essay about equal pay:
'I had no idea it was going to blow up like that. And I obviously only absorbed the negative. I didn't pay any attention to the positive feedback. My parents get really upset. They do not like me speaking out about anything political because it's hard to see your kid take criticism. But, really, people who criticized it are people who think women should not be paid the same as men. So I don't really care what those people think.'

On having dinner with her friend comic Aziz Ansari:
'It was the one night I could see Aziz. For Valentine's he got me a stuffed animal, and I got him a 'That's So Raven' Valentine's Day card.'

On people being intimidated by here:
'I can feel people sometimes are intimidated by me, but I try to do the best I can to offset that," she says. "There is zero reason to be intimidated by me. At all. But I also understand it.'

On feminism:
'I don't know why that word is so scary to people; it shouldn't be, because it just means equality. If we are moving forward in a society, you are feeling stronger as a woman, and you want to be taken more seriously. You don't have to take away the wonderful traits that come with being a woman: We are sensitive. We are pleasers. We're empathetic. All those things that can keep you from asking for what you want or making mistakes.'

On her 2016 Golden Globes awards dress:
'That was my plan-B dress. Plan A was a dress that I couldn't wear because awards season is synced with my menstrual cycle, and it has been for years. The red won because it was loose at the front. And I didn't have to worry about sucking anything in. The other dress was really tight, and I'm not going to suck in my uterus. I don't have to do that.'
