|It’s like my entire life came from one job. I met my husband on the show. I have a beautiful house. Every day I feel incredibly blessed.
(following Jesse Spencer wedding proposal): I was in so much shock when he proposed that it took me two day before I cried! My brain couldnt catch up to everything. Jesse laughed at me for a couple of days because I wandered around not really able to grasp everything. But then I realized that all these things that I was hoping for in my life – all these things you dont dare to hope for too much just in case thats not your path – all of a sudden it was at the forefront and possible. I realized, I will have a home and a family with him!Thats when it finally hit me and I cried – but it was a happy cry!
(on co-star Jesse Spencer’s wedding proposal): It was so romantic! We were at the Eiffel Tower and the ring was not in a ring box but in a little old poll case with a butterfly on top. Jesse gave it to me and said it was my Christmas present.
I got really jealous. Being in touch with Cameron’s feelings, it was kind of hard to watch.
Jennifer: My resume for Cameron has me graduating medical school the year I graduated junior high.
I really do see the good in people, and I don’t want to change that. That’s really how I view things, so sometimes I’ll look past a lot of huge red flags because I see something else in someone. Then of course it always comes back to haunt me in the long run.
I think “crimp” is a real understatement. It was not good. I love my dad so much, and he’s an amazing teacher, so I really wouldn’t trade that for the world, but it didn’t make me too popular.
I always had a thing with Thanksgivings. I’ve started dating people and broken up with them around Thanksgiving several times. What is it about Thanksgiving? I guess that at least someone’s there to console you.
I almost got evicted from my apartment complex. We spent the entire time on set on our boards, so we constantly got more comfortable and got better and better.
I spent a summer doing “public relations” in the parking lot at Arlington Race Track. There was a big concert with seven stages going. It was 102 degrees outside — so muggy and hot — and I’m sweating like crazy. People are all in a bad mood, hot, totally drunk, wasted, asking how to get places. One car pulled up, and the guy in the back seat said, “Come here, I need to ask you something.” He’s like, “Jennifer, can I just shake your hand for doing a good job?” I went to shake his hand and he…licked…my…arm, from my wrist all the way up! I went, “Aaaaii!” It was so nasty.
Actually, everything moved so quickly. We had two days to learn everything. They gave me Tony Hawk’s Trick Tips videos. I’d be in my PJs at night with my board trying to learn how to Ollie on my carpet or skate up and down my alley at 2 a.m.
I was on the cleanup crew. The whole track was covered in trash. The things we found…people’s underwear, a shower curtain, the strangest things. By the end of the day I was covered in filth. It looked like I had tan lines. But, I didn’t have a tan line; I had a filth line.
I grew up dancing when I was a kid in Chicago. I played soccer for a couple of years in high school. Once I moved to Los Angeles and was in the warm weather all the time I learned how to play tennis, wakeboard, snowboard, surf and ride dirt bikes. I also go hiking in L.A.
I was a kid, so I wouldn’t consider that real modeling, but every Sunday you could open the paper and see me in ads for Kohl’s, JCPenney, Montgomery Ward and stuff like that.
The big scandal was when I was in seventh grade and I modeled a bathing suit. Everybody freaked out!
I’ve been single for a little while partly because I’ve been working so much and partly because I don’t want to settle. A lot of people run around and are real crazy in Hollywood, but I want to wait for it to be the right thing.
