Kay Kay Menon

Tom Stoppard
I just like talking, and I’m really truthful. Sometimes things come out of my mouth, and I think, ‘Maybe I shouldn’t have said that,’ but at the end of the day, I am who I am! When I’m not acting, I’m going to be fully Hayley Hasselhoff, and that’s what you’re going to get. And I enjoy that.

Anne Stevenson
