In 2000, Q made her film debut as Anna in the horror film Model from Hell, and went on to star as an FBI agent Jane Quigley in the action thriller Gen-Y Cops the same year.

I have no idea what's going on and you gotta love that, because as a woman, I think Valentine's Day is more our day.So I think the most important thing is you gotta marry your best friend at the end of the day.

They're all cute and they're all amazing but they're all designed very differently just like we are."That's where Best Friends is really helpful, because they have a 33,000-acre, no-kill sanctuary in Utah, "and what you do there is you volunteer with the dogs.I try to do it annually, and when your 9-hour day is over, whatever dog you connected with or you had something special with, you actually sign them out and you take them home for a sleepover!
