My theory in anything you do is to keep exploring, keep digging deeper to find new stuff.
Maybe subconsciously I've kept activism separate from acting because it's important to me in a more profound way.
I loved doing Shakespeare. My two favorite roles, in fact, have been Viola in Twelfth Night and Helena in A Midsummer Night's Dream.
Mostly, I spend my time being a mother to my two children, working in my organic garden, raising masses of sweet peas, being passionately involved in conservation, recycling and solar energy.
I feel that its our children who do give us hope because they are the ones who are going to save the world.
I really do like being independent, and I don't want to have to rely on anyone else to cart me around if I break a bone.
I've kept my sanity in this business by trying out for a role and then going home and trying to forget about it.
My family was very musical. My brother is an opera singer; my parents both sang.
I got to Broadway a year after I came to New York. I starred in 'Butterflies Are Free' and got a Tony for it. Right out of the gate. Maybe that's why I wasn't very gracious about it. I wasn't driven. And right after 'Butterflies Are Free', I got married and then started a family. I always wanted that.
I live in New York, and when you're older and widowed, it's a perfect place because you just don't feel lonely there, and, luckily, I like my own company, too.
Acting is really only part of my life. I'm addicted to it.
Actors are very generous.
Being a grandmother is probably the most important thing to me. I have two really rambunctious little ones, and I love spending time with them.
I am always happiest in an ensemble.
I don't give my advice unless it's asked for.
I feel a little guilty only being an actor.
I loved the first Christmas I had in England.
I really pulled back on my career when the kids were young and my husband and I made a pact never to work while the other one was.
I think I have a lot of crazy layers.
I think one of my very favorite films of all time was with Peter Sellers when he played Chauncey, the gardener. Being There.
