Best Quotes from Heather Graham

By | July 7, 2016

There’s always a side of me that goes, ‘I’m just a nerd.’ I never look at myself and say, ‘I’m beautiful.’ Like anyone else, I see the flaws. Guys don’t do that as much as women. But you have to learn to appreciate and accept and love yourself as you are.

Heather Graham

I am intrigued by different religions and respect them all, but to be honest, I feel the most spiritual when I am doing yoga or looking at an ocean.

I do have the roller skates from ‘Boogie Nights.’

I remember when we were shooting ‘Boogie Nights,’ all of my stand-ins were wiping out all the time. I’d practice before I got to the set, but they’d just show up and put on the roller-skates, and they’d be skating over these wires and cables, so they would all fall over. It was totally dangerous.
