Amber Riley's quotes

  • I worked at Ikea as a customer service rep for two years and loved it.
  • I am so girly. I love dresses.
  • I love myself.
  • Back in high school, I went on dates, but I was too focused on my career. My parents were like, 'It's nice to have a boyfriend, but it's even nicer to own your house when you're 21.'
  • Not having a private life is hard.
  • My friends tell me I'm the most boring celebrity they know! A typical night for me is at home in California or watching movies in my pyjamas.
  • Everyone needs a creative outlet to express themselves, and the arts in school provides that.
  • As long as you are being true to yourself, you will always find happiness.
  • Being the person I am, you know, the size I am, being a woman, being a black woman, there's not a lot of roles for us.
  • I'm a healthy person.
  • I auditioned for 'American Idol' at 17. They told me, 'No.'
  • As a kid, I was super skinny.
  • I never wanted to play a character that hated herself. I wanted people to know that those aren't the only roles for people like me, normal girls.
  • Hollywood is a very hard place to be in. It really is.
  • I don't ever feel like anybody knows who I am.
  • I love Adele, I want her to be my best friend. She could come to the U.S., live with me and sing to me every morning.
  • I dreamed really big when I was little.
  • When I receive letters from girls that say, 'You give me confidence,' I think, 'Wow, this is amazing.' That's my goal: to let people know it's truly what's on the inside that counts.
  • I've always been comfortable with my size.
  • I always say as a celebrity you have two choices - you can be a celebrity, or you can be a role model. You can choose to just go to parties and do the red carpets and all that, or you can choose to be an example to these people.
  • I'm a little bit of a germophobe - not that bad!
  • My parents always instilled knowing that your beautiful, that your fearfully and wonderfully made, and that you know who you are.
  • I love, love, love Michael Jackson.
  • I want to encourage young women to stand up for each other and speak up when they see others in a tough situation.
  • What is the use in being a celebrity if you can't use the platform to help?
