I'm not very active politically. The causes I work on offer immediate, practical, accessible help, and politics has never meant that to me.
I'm very old-fashioned in some ways because of my father, who thought that being a public servant was an honor. Everyone must find a capacity in which they can serve, because we all benefit from society.
What makes me angry? The education of children. How in God's name can you expect to have a functioning society the way we teach our kids?
I would certainly choose my jobs depending on the actions of the character. I won't do anything that has to do with child abuse or women's abuse.
I have health. I have a wonderful support system. I have the admiration of millions of strangers, which I do not underestimate.
Being a sex symbol has to do with an attitude, not looks. Most men think it's looks, most women know otherwise.
Get more women producers, writers, directors. Why should we expect men to do it for us? They can't.
There are still women who are not living their own lives, but living through their men or their children.
I figured as I got older, the good roles for women would be in the theatre. So 15 years ago I started building a Broadway career to try and develop the chops to be accepted as a great theatrical actress.
I'm very practical. What I'm reaching for is individualism for women.
What we need is more women writers, writing for older women. There are some actresses who have production companies and create their own material, and I truly admire that.
Women are responsible for creating their own roles.
The big gap between the ability of actors is confidence.
I think my mission is to become the greatest human I can. I know that sounds pompous, but what else do we have?
Crimes of Passion, which is one of the best films I've done, will live strongly in my resume, even though it didn't do well.
