Diablo Cody Quotes 1852813

The fashion industry isn't merely content to encase my meaty flanks in skintight denim. Oh, no!

Diablo Cody Quotes 403904

Now '90210' is returning with an all-new cast of slightly more plausible teens. I'll be honest: I wish the old cast was back. Ideally, this spin-off would be an Ice Storm-esque exploration of the West Beverly gang's bleak adult lives. — Diablo Cody

Diablo Cody Quotes 971171

Juno MacGuff: Wise move. I know this girl who had a huge crazy freakout because she took too many behavioral meds at once. She took off all her clothes and jumped into the fountain at Ridgedale Mall and she was like, "Blaaaaah! I'm a kraken from the sea!"
Su-Chin: That was you. — Diablo Cody

Diablo Cody Quotes 1819299

If a woman chooses to work, people say, "Oh it's so sad that you're not at home with your children." But no one ever says that to a man because it's assumed that the man is going to be the provider. There's this double standard that exists and it really frustrates me. — Diablo Cody

Diablo Cody Quotes 1904531

Here's my unsolicited advice to any aspiring screenwriters who might be reading this: Don't ever agonize about the hordes of other writers who are ostensibly your competition. No one else is capable of doing what you do. — Diablo Cody

Diablo Cody Quotes 1909355

Diablo Cody Quotes 1924394

Diablo Cody Quotes 2033702

I don't think I ever got the hang of the writers' room. I love collaborating with people, but I really do my best work alone, and I think I would want to - if I did something again, I think I'd want to take total ownership the way Aaron Sorkin or David Kelley does. — Diablo Cody

Diablo Cody Quotes 2139336

Fact: The new '90210' is cooler than the old '90210.' It's the lithe, streamlined Skipper to the elder series' venerable Barbie. Gone are the traditional parents - they've been replaced by a hipster mom n' pop who get busted necking in the car. — Diablo Cody

Diablo Cody Quotes 2140891

You know, it shouldn't just be about women as heroic figures overcoming things, it just needs to be about women in general getting the opportunity to play a multitude of roles, telling a multitude of stories - just to express human experience from a woman's perspective. I hope, someday, we can get to that point. I'm all about representation. — Diablo Cody

Diablo Cody Quotes 2142934

Shoulda gone to China. They give away babies like free iPods. They put them in guns and shoot them out at sporting events. — Diablo Cody

Diablo Cody Quotes 2206813

I had gone to the bookstore, and while I hadn't bought any books on how to write a screenplay, I'd bought a couple of scripts so I could see how the formatting works.
