“I’ve always been an instinctual sort of person so I just kind of left and I’m very blessed, so I was able to meet a woman who really took me in. I mean, I wouldn’t… I wouldn’t be here without her. It took place in Hong Kong. She took me in, I slept on her floor, she bought my food. [On how she met her] somebody gave me her number, I called her and I randomly went to her office and I just said, you know, "here I am. I’m a broke student, I don’t know what to do.” And she said, “well, let’s see what happens." Maggie Q’s Audience Surprise on The Late Show with David Letterman.

You can sit around all day long and whine about what you’re not getting, but it’s not about what you’re not getting, it’s about what you’re not taking. For me, as an asian american, I’m looking for roles that are non ethnic-specific. If you come to me and you’re like, “Can you play this flower girl on this boat?,” the finger goes up really fast. The blood boils really quickly. Sure, I or any asian girl could play that role. If you’re doing a story on history or whatever, that’s totally valid. When you get roles that are stereotypical and do not push our cause or further our image in media and in entertainment, it’s your responsibility to turn those things down. I’m not saying that from the position of, “I’ve earned enough so that I can say no.” I’ve said no to things when I had no money. It wasn’t about that. It was about the big picture. Where do I want to go with this? Do I want to make that amount of money for the next six months, and then what? It goes away, and I’d have no further career beyond that. Or, do I want to make smart decisions that are going to change the face of my community?
