We all struggle with our failure to communicate and our failure to reach beyond fear to love people.
I assume that if people get to know me, they'll like me. If they don't, it's not my problem.
I had a Christian upbringing - it was all about sin and guilt. I was very happy just kissing people. I was like the make-out queen - not even second base.
I hate it when people use sex as a weapon against the people who are engaging in it. It's so hypocritical.
I hope that doing truthful portrayals of people in a variety of circumstances gives people a kind of subterranean link to those characters.
It's the relationships between people that are more important than the sort of far away fantasies of what the good life is, the world of supermodels and Bud ads.
Sometimes I feel limited by people's perceptions of what I can and cannot do, or what I do or don't look like.
I want my life to effect the balance to the positive.
I always feel I can play a role - just give me the time to do the preparation and I'll be it.
I have a hard time getting motivated to do something that seems like a career move. I've gotten into vague trouble with my agents for turning down work that I thought was exploitative.
I wanted to do something far from my intellectual and physical home, so I went to live in Beijing for eight months and took Mandarin Chinese.
The name game is frustrating. Agents will say, They love you, but they're going to offer it to Julia Roberts first.
I could have seen myself going into academia, but I don't love it; I just like it.
I'm doing things that are more artistic again, more close to the material that I love. I don't disparage those things that I did. They're just not as much reflective of who I am.
Acting is doing, because everything you say or do is some kind of an action, some kind of a verb. You're always connected to the other person through some kind of action.
