In this business sometimes it's really hard (even for yourself) to determine which kind of relationship is a true love.

(On paparazzi) I'm already frequently exposed under the sun; this is my work, but what I cannot accept is that they write untruthful things under the claim of reporting the truth. They are desperately digging for the information that they perceive as inside information; they completely ignore other people's feelings, and they have no second thoughts when it comes to destroying people with their lies.
