With a natural beauty that shone through difficult circumstances and a likable free spirit, Haskell emerged from "Survivor" with a largely positive image. Finishing up her post-graduate work at the Miami Ad School, she secured an agent, moved to California and landed her role in "The Animal". Playing Rianna, the love interest of Rob Schneider's rebuilt man would offer her the chance to showcase her goofy charm and comic abilities. More "Humpty Dumpty" than "The Six-Million-Dollar Man", Schneider's Marvin is put back together with internal animal parts, resulting in some predictably wild hijinks. Produced by Adam Sandler and starring dependable draw Schneider, the film was expected to have decent box office returns, but whether Haskell would follow up with more acting roles remained to be seen.

|From the People "Survivor" special issue, Spring 2001, Haskell talks about her first movie experience: "Nothing's hard here. I come in, I walk through a door five times, then eat lunch. On 'Survivor' they give you no food. Here you get three carts full!"|
|"I think some people went on the island just to pursue [careers] in entertainment. I was there to take a free vacation to Malaysia.
"When you think about where I was a year ago, it's such a kick. I'm really just along for the ride." --Haskell quoted in the Teen People special issue "25 Hottest People Under 25", April 2001.
|Haskell on being crowned "America's sweetheart" by the media: "My mom was like, 'Oh, if they could hear your language they wouldn't say that.' But people are going to classify you whatever they want. Next year I could be something else.
"Mary Lou Retton was America's sweetheart, and she always kinda creeped me out, so I don't really want to be known as that." --to iF Magazine, May 4, 2001.
