All I really want to do is entertain people out there sitting in the dark and for them to believe it.
I do come shackled with whatever people think I am.
I don't care what people's myths are about me.
Yeah, I do feel badly sometimes, not for whose coming up and getting roles I'm not right for anymore but the people I compete with, who range from Uma Thurman on up.
If it's independent, it's because I love it... 'cause they usually end up costing me money to do.
I just think we're living in a time of massive, amazing change, like the Industrial Revolution on acid.
Most movie stars don't change their look at all.
You know, I change my hair color a lot, I do all sorts of different things.
I've been overwhelmed; I was a single mother for a time.
I can't wait til I get the chance to be a character and how my face looks isn't the first consideration.
It's important for me to see as many colors in the character as possible.
It's part of the fun of it to work with strong personalities.
Well, I'm a consumer as well. I go to the movies with my popcorn and believe everything I see.
And sometimes I do films so my daughter can see me work.
That's where I got my start and where I'll continue to work, but I can't tell you the number of films between Drugstore Cowboy and Curly Sue that I auditioned for and wanted that didn't choose me.
In their 30s women really start to live... they're not children anymore, and they're not just mothers.
Well, for someone who looks like me you wonder where Alfred Hitchcock is.
In a collaborative environment directors hire actors because they want their input, not just their bodies.
I think right now in the world we're feeling like there's no solid ground beneath our feet, you know?
The least consideration of any film I've ever worked on is who is right for it.
You look at Gone With the Wind, how right Vivian Leigh was for that. Don't know if that would happen today.
