Tara On...

Film star and sex kitten Tara Reid wants more than a slice of American Pie. Outspoken and uninhibited, she's got a mouthful for everyone, though her opinions may be tough to swallow....


"I don't want to just act. I want to produce, direct and write films. I want to be a powerful voice in Hollywood at a young age, and it's going to happen.... One day, I hope to win an Academy Award, you know."

...monkey business:

"I hate being tickled. Sure, it makes me laugh, but I get pissed off. I'm like a monkey when I'm tickled--woohoo!"

...Mr. TRL:

"Guess what? Carson Daly is not in my life anymore. Nor will he ever be. And if you want to quote me on that, go right ahead."

...chasing waterfalls:

"I've always wanted to do something crazy under a waterfall with greenery all over the place--not even necessarily have sex but hug and play and splash the water."


"I think that people forget that just because you're a celebrity doesn't mean you're a robot. I want everyone to let Tara be Tara."


"Every movie I've done, I've only seen once, if at all. Because that's Tara caring about what Tara looks like."

...lucky charms:

"I believe in rainbows and, at the end, there might be a pot of gold: That is who I am."


"I can't help the way I was born and the way I look, but that doesn't mean I'm a sex goddess. There might be a sweet girl inside there."

...pubescent popularity:

"When I started developing and his friends started liking me, my brother freaked out. He was, like, 'That's my sister. If you talk to her, I'll kill you.' My nickname was Untouchable."
