I never will have peace of mind. I'm not constructed that way. Some things in life can be horrible.
My family said that I wanted to act even when I was a child living on a tea plantation in the jungle in India.
I don't think I would have been a good mother. Being a parent brings immense responsibility. It's a Herculean task. It would be almost too much for me.
I remember becoming aware of women's issues and inequality. It became glaringly clear to me when I was living in America that women are regarded as less intelligent than men.
I did things like Shampoo and Heaven Can Wait. I don't know what those films were about. The women I played in them were not very empowered.
I've never quite understood why people marry; marriage is just an invented structure.
It takes me time to realize things; I'm a speedy person but a slow thinker.
Happiness is the absence of suffering. I think it's an interesting way of looking at it. I think the absence of suffering exists very rarely in the world we live in.
Altman works in such an interesting way, letting things occur in the film even if he didn't particularly plan them.
Early on, I found the attention completely embarrassing. I'd cringe if I saw my picture on the cover of a magazine.
I regret that I wasn't the kind of person who could enjoy celebrity. It embarrassed me too much.
I see stardom very clearly as a construct that's been created in order to sell things.
I think I've got something when I'm onscreen, but that's nothing to do with acting or talent.
I was born with a need to be the center of attention, and, of course, you're the center of the world when you're acting.
I was utilized because I have a certain face that works well in cinema, and I'm used to making myself look as good as possible.
It's quite hard for me being an actress because I actually don't like attention.
Men don't want any responsibility, and neither do I.
The status quo and the media is doing everything it can to fry children's brains and make them grow up maladjusted.
I'm not in the advertising business, but I think it would be very nice if people went to see the film Hamlet, because it was made with love and integrity.
Most of the time I spent in America, I was having a love affair with some American or other. I was just passing through but stayed because of these chaps.
