"For 18 and a half years I've been cast as the girl next door. I'm a full-blooded, sexual American woman and I've always seen myself as being pretty darn hot. It was an amazing experience I'll remember for the rest of my life." -Teri Polo, on her decision to pose for Playboy.
"When I first got out [to L.A.] I tried dressing like a hootchie. I tried acting like a hootchie, but it didn't work. I guess I'm just not a hootchie at heart." - Teri Polo
Teri Polo's tattoos are a large tribal style lower back tattoo, a crescent moon & star on the back of her left ankle, a butterfly or angel just at her bikini line, and a symbol on her left breast which appears to be a musical note combined with initials.
