- She may seem mean on the outside, but she's all mush on the inside.

 hard on the outside but soft on the inside mean/tough on the outside but a softie on the inside mean/tough on the outside but one's all mush on the inside
外冷內熱 = 傲驕 = 外在冷淡但內心熱情，hard on the outside but soft on the inside 是最貼切的英文說法之一。tough on the outside but a softie on the inside = 外表很強悍，但內心柔軟(例如多愁善感、容易受到情緒影響、沒有耐力、缺乏力量)tough on the outside but one's all mush on the inside (或 on the inside one's all mush) 也有類似的意思。有些人會說 cold on the outside and warm on the inside，但這句話並非慣用語，美國人雖聽的懂，卻不正確。
