I really admire people who are extraordinarily tolerant and patient.
I act probably a lot more than you see. I happen to choose movies that don't have much of a life, or I choose movies that are shown on cable instead of as features.
The rhythm of my career has always been very static, staccato and then silent, and then a lot of work, and then none.
It's the same with people knowing absolutely everything there is to know about an actor. I actually think the more personal information you have about an actor, the more you have to carve out for yourself when you go to a movie and see them in it.
I get cold really quickly, but I don't care. I like weather. I never understand why people move someplace so that they can avoid weather.
Mothers and daughters can stay very connected during teenage years. In the middle of your life, you can become very alone. Even though you're connected deeply to other family members, lovers, husbands, friends.
I've never directed, but it must be humbling.
I've never had a career of that kind of box office power. I've always learned the hard way.
I've never worked as much as I would've wanted to, and that's why I end up doing a lot of stage as well, because stage is a full course meal.
I think it's really odd, too, that the public is so privy to how much money the actors make and what movies cost. It seems to me to be beside the point. When I go to a movie I really don't want to think about the money. I want to see the story.
I would love to work more - I really would - but there is not a lot of stuff around and the stuff that is around is not very complicated; it tends to lie a little flat.
More and more movies have been pressured to allow reporters and TV cameras to come onto the set while you're working, and I find that a real violation.
