Quotes By Renee
"All the pictures in magazines and all of that is fun but in the end it's all about your soul and who you are and have you connected with the people."
"Granted, I do also believe in free will as well. I just think we have a path that we might be directed towards, and it's sort of up to us to find our way there."
"I always thought I would be a marine biologist because I love the sea - but considering the fact that I've always loved acting and the theater, I don't think I ever gave anything else much of a chance."
"I think it's sometimes hard for people sometimes to accept, but not to believe. And the reason that is is because people have an idea of who I am based on the characters I have played, which is mostly Gabrielle because she's the most high profile."
