When I feel strongly about something, I'm not so quiet.
I hate how box-office failures are blamed on an actress, yet I don't see a box-office failure blamed on men.
I didn't really play dress up when I was a kid, and I'm really T-shirt and jeans-y.
I love playing roles that are physical, absolutely love. Whether it's just that kind of basic level of physicality or whether it's stunts.
I love nicknames. It makes me feel loved. It makes me feel less alone in this world.
There's obviously a lot of tragedy in comedy; I really enjoy the paradox of what a really good comedy is.
And I think it's really easy for people to point out hypocrisy in people's lives.
As a girl, you're supposed to love Sleeping Beauty. I mean, who wants to love Sleeping Beauty when you can be Aladdin?
When we're growing up there are all sorts of people telling us what to do when really what we need is space to work out who to be.
Mind you, Roman Holiday - which is kind of a romantic comedy - is one of my favorite films, and I think Audrey Hepburn is absolutely phenomenal in that movie.
To be in a position, at my age, where I am financially independent, I can help develop things, I can promote stuff that I believe in, I can say no a lot and spend time writing - that is a gift.
I don't really want to do the Hollywood thing. I think you ought to try to say something with your movies.
I don't want to become unhealthily attached to what I do. I'm grateful for what I do, but I also want to be able to be OK when I'm not doing it.
I grew up working in Canada so everything was low budget.
I think a lot of the time in films, men get roles where they create their own destiny and women are just tools, supporters for that.
I think there's a tremendous amount of guilt that goes on between mothers and daughters, no matter how good or bad their relationships are.
I'd ice-skated before, because I'm Canadian and that's what you do as a kid, but I'd never, ever been on quad skates.
The relationships I've had with my girl friends are so powerful and meaningful. Without them I truly don't know what I'd do.
I think the Smart Car is awesome. The only problem is I've been on the freeway and felt like I was going to be blown away like a Tim Hortons coffee cup, so I may have to upgrade to a Mini Cooper - something a little stronger.
I've always been drawn to stories and telling them; whether it was through being a part of theater when I was a little kid, or film, or with music, there's just been an innate desire to feel that connection.
