There is the list of some quotes of Anita Briem:
  • [on Iceland] I try to show everybody Iceland all the time. My people are like, "Don't tell everybody the secret. It's so peaceful and beautiful here!" It's incredible; I go home and drive across country, and go to my mom's place and it's dark with the Northern Lights, and I like to sit in some hot springs.
  • [on plans to do any stage] I love the theater; the theater sort of raised me. So I'm quite sure I will go back to the theater. Right now I'm sort of captured in the all-consuming, fantastical world of movies.
  • [on living in Los Angeles ] People ask me, "What is it like?" with a negative tone. But for me, I'm surrounded by the most talented and passionate people in the industry.
  • [on her role in Journey to the Center of the Earth] I must have auditioned for this movie at least 25 times. This was a 4-month process. I have to check my sources on this but, I think I beat out Cameron Diaz's record for how many times she auditioned for "The Mask," with how many times I auditioned for this movie
