You can never get to a place of comfort in this business. As soon as you hit that little cushy spot, somebody's gonna kick you out. So I have a constant need to do it better.
You always have this fear in a movie of just being somebody's woman.
Yet there's a hunger in me still. I'm like only beginning. I feel like I still have so much to learn.
When they watch a movie and they know that you're in a relationship, you just kind of watch that constantly.
They really stay just characters to me. I look at them, and I don't see always the same person up there. And hopefully, people will see that too. Because it's very easy to bore people, and that's a killer. So hopefully that won't happen.
Something I learned very early on in my career is that there are a lot of things that you do not have any power over.
So I did that for a long time in my career, and I waited for parts to play myself just physically down a little bit. But I do feel like I'm at a place in my career now where I don't necessarily fret about that too much anymore.
So how critics will perceive your film or your work, or whether your movie is going to make $100 million at the box office, or whether you are going to be winning any awards - well, you have no control over that.
If they ever do my life story, whoever plays me needs lots of hair color and high heels.
If I don't like seeing myself on the screen, I think when I start seeing that, that's when I think I'll stop.
I'm happy for people who want to get married. It's not my thing.
I'd love to get pajamas. Good, nice and warm flannel ones.
I think today women are very scared to celebrate themselves, because then they just get labeled.
I think in life we want to challenge ourselves.
I only worked on Men of Honor for three weeks, but I walked away with so much. Because Bob is the kind of actor who gives you the opportunity to really go there. And we really had to go there. I mean, we were both playing drunks.
I mean, I'm new but I've always been very interested in film making process and I've been lucky enough to work with film makers in my past that have been very encouraging to let me hang around. I get so emotionally vested - that the producer part of me was natural.
I mean I tried to transform myself through characters throughout my career.
I like what I do, and I'm very fortunate now to be in a very nice place. Which is that I don't have to work anymore. So the work that I do now is purely because I really want to.
I have very talented people dress me and put my makeup on, stuff like that. But I do love that look, and I think it's maybe because I grew up on that old glamour.
I have been working a lot, and I like it. And you know, it's hard for me not to. I guess I've been working a lot because I get to play with brilliant people.
I had called her up a couple of weeks before then, because I had heard this vicious rumour that she did not like the movie. It was very upsetting for me. I am very sensitive to that, because I am portraying her life and did not want her to be unhappy.
