The times may have changed, but the people are still the same. We're still looking for love, and that will always be our struggle as human beings.
In the X-Men the women are so strong and sexy! We really kick some male butt!
It is very hard to separate one's self from a character. Sometimes the people closest to me have to be very understanding.
When you grow up in that (multi-ethnic) environment, you see the world differently. Being a mixed-race child, I didn't always see colour in people, I really didn't. It was other people that made me see the colour all the time.
I don't see a white woman. I see a black woman, even though my mother is white. Knowing that has made my life easier, I think.
I know that I will never find my father in any other man who comes into my life, because it is a void in my life that can only be filled by him.
My whole life I've had the fear that I was going to be abandoned.
It's an amazing feeling to know that life is actually growing inside your body. The first time you see the ultrasound and you see the little bones and you realise that it's part of you and it's in your care is life changing and this sort of protective instinct has taken over.
I used to believe that if my career was going great, then I was not entitled to a great personal life. Well, I've stopped thinking that way. I believe I can have it all.
I've also grown as an actor as I've got older in life. I've learnt how to go to work, immerse myself 100 per cent in the character and, at the end of the day, take it all off and go back, get a nice bubble bath, have a nice massage and realise that is not my life. And that feels good.
If you really want to be competitive in today's market you have to be in movies that make money.
I'd like to be able to use Storm's powers for good, like have it rain more in Southern California. We could do with it.
I think a smart person today realizes that you have to be part of the art films that are done just for the sake of the art.
When a young woman tells me that she wants to become and actor, I say, 'No, be a writer. Or go to business school and learn how to run a studio.' The only real change will come from behind the scenes.
I spent a lot of time with a crown on my head.
