I like to run, to go down the stairs, I'm one of those kind of people.
People always seem to see echoes of their own lives in my films.
A woman came up to me after one of the screenings with tears pouring down her face and sobbed, You've defined my entire life for me on the screen.
There's no environment. Use your imagination. There's no fourth wall, whether it's the first time you've told this story about her life, or the sixth time.
I just read that Time magazine cover story with all this information about how you have to have your kids by the time you're 12 or it's all over. Please.
I wasn't very good about juggling family and my career. I was interested in who was coming to the children's birthday party, what my son was writing. I was thinking about Legos.
I don't theorize too much. I sort of let the experience sink in, and I have to discover what the character is by doing it, and having those thoughts that she's thinking.
Clothes are part of the character. They can't but help inform who you are.
I notice now, whatever character in whatever movie you're watching, they have these toned arms and muscles.
I love to swim for miles; I could just go back and forth.
What bugs me is that movies don't reflect how interesting and vibrant women are. We don't treasure women as they get older.
I just didn't work that much while the kids were growing up.
There was just this amazing individuality. It's just a whole different world of optimism and fearlessness, women taking off their bras and dancing around naked, and a political hopefulness and involvement.
