"I love - I have a very close soft spot for Karen; I love Karen. She’s my great, great friend. And she’s just - y’know, she’s just so ridiculous. I can’t even begin to tell you.

❝She’s just the weirdest person in the world. And she’s, like, SO pretty, but what’s amazing about Karen is that her beauty is not part of her personality at all. She’s so unaware of it. You know how some people are really beautiful and they go, “oh, I’m beautiful,” but she’s really not, and she’s really funny and really ridiculous.
