I was raised to sense what someone wanted me to be and be that kind of person. It took me a long time not to judge myself through someone else's eyes.
But there isn't any second half of myself waiting to plug in and make me whole. It's there. I'm already whole.

I can't deny the fact that you like me! You like me!
My agent said, 'You aren't good enough for movies.' I said, 'You're fired.'
I really have no ulterior motive in taking on certain roles. I have no larger issue that I really want to show people. I'm an actor, that's all. I just do what I do . . .
It's put ... together into a cohesive, chronological line of events.
I've never held a gun. I've never shot a gun. I don't ever want to do it again.
I was shaking all over. I didn't like it and I felt that way when we shot the sequences, but I thought my character felt that way.
I've never been an actor who goes and really gets off on being nuts and never gets out of it. There would be times when I would be crying for hours and hours and hours, but mostly they were in and out of the picture. There were times to go hide and times to come out and play.
There was really a snobbery from people in film - they did not want people who had come from television. It was the poor relation of show business, and especially situation comedy.
I came from a real working-class show business family.
Change is never easy.
I haven't had an orthodox career, and I've wanted more than anything to have your respect. The first time I didn't feel it, but this time I feel it, and I can't deny the fact that you like me, right now, you like me!
I was just lucky enough to grow up in a time when they actually had drama departments in schools.
