- Sexuality is an expression of our spirituality. Sex makes you get real.
- Playboy, July 1992.
- I love doing what I do, but I don't like seeing the finished product.
- When I did TV shows and movies, the studios did demographic research. They were shocked to find that my audience isn't just men who are too drunk to turn off the TV after football. It's women, too. I don't know exactly why, other than that I've tried to remain true to myself for all these years. I have gone through a lot, and I've been open about it. Maybe they look at me and can see how you can grow up, have children, continue to be sexy, get married and divorced and, though you grew up poor, live the American dream. I'm very blessed. I'm happy for it all.

About Anderson Edit
- [The "decade" reference is to the 1990s] In case anyone is still on the fence about how toxic it was for women in the public eye in that decade, Anderson’s story lays it bare. Here’s an early exchange between young Anderson and an interviewer on NBC: "I’ve never sat across from an interview subject before and said, 'May we talk briefly about your breasts?'" Here's Larry King: "Have you ever had work done?" Anderson: "Why, yes, these are implants." King: "Oh, they are?" Anderson laughs: a mix of exasperation and embarrassment. King, aggressive: "Are they, or aren’t they?" Anderson, sighing: "Yes, they are."
- Try as I might – in person and follow-up emails – I cannot get Anderson to condemn Hugh Hefner as a dirty old pervert: one who played a founding role in the industrialisation of "glamour" model exploitation. Anderson is loyal to a fault. She views Playboy as an academy of sorts.
