Before we can fully close the books on 2020 and move on to what we hope are much brighter days ahead, we wanted to take our annual look back at the year that was. In the following pages you’ll read memorable quotes from our many celebrity interviews as well as find a comprehensive roundup of Central Florida’s top attorneys, dentists, doctors and realtors in addition to the best shops, food, beauty treatments and much, much more.
THEY SAID IT
Memorable quotes from our best interviews of 2020.
“I like to inject a lot [resilience] into my characters and I don’t separate myself from anyone else. I think all of us have a thread which goes through us, we are familiar with fear and what it is, the same with loneliness and isolation, what victory and failure are. I think that if you can tell that story then the audience can relate to it.” –Sylvester Stallone
“[The Sopranos] was very cinematic and it was also appointment television, where so many of us got together on Sunday nights to have dinner with family and friends and share the experience. So, that makes it more of a show; it’s a memory of their life when they watched it.” –Jamie-Lynn Sigler
“No time to be tired. I do feel incredibly motivated and completely inspired to do something special over the next couple of years. I don’t think I can work at this pace indefinitely so there will certainly come a time when I have to slow down—just not yet.” –Margot Robbie
“I think the older you get, unless you know the challenge is there, it’s easy to start slipping into a situation where you just live in the present or the past. The secret to life and staying happy is to always be looking at the future.”
“I want [my daughter] to see a strong-willed woman, and I want her to see kindness. That’s not to say that I am trying to be perfect. I just want her to see that because I had that growing up. Having really great, caring parents has kept me in good stead, and I want to do the same for my daughter.” –Amanda Seyfried
“I’m very grateful to have this responsibility of playing Wonder Woman. This is a very big character. It’s important for women to have characters like that to give them confidence and develop high aspirations for what they want to be able to accomplish in life.” –Gal Gadot
“No matter what kind of day I’m having or how stressful it has been, I come home and [my kids] start yelling “Daddy;” it makes it all the better.” –Mario Lopez
“I’m so much happier with how I feel about myself and things in general and about where my life is going now than I was when I was in my 20s or early 30s. I have an inner peace and calm that has guided me over the years—it’s really valuable to have that, even if it takes a while to find it.” –Jennifer Aniston
“Every child fantasizes about going out into the world to do something incredible. It’s totally unnatural for that not to be the case.” –Scarlett Johansson
“I’ve been in Hollywood for 25 years. When I say in it, I mean working in it and I’ve seen so many make the mistake of allowing their lives, their home lives to become intertwined and consumed almost and, you know, life is hard enough without that kind of spotlight.” –Ryan Reynolds
