I don't live by a lot of society's rules; I can't pattern myself after the herd.
I just thank God that I didn't grow up with so much money or privilege because you had to create ways to make it happen.
You lose your anonymity just like a helium balloon with a string. Therefore people are going to have their own opinion and they're going to write in whatever clever manner they desire.
It always takes the truth a little bit longer to cross the finish line.
I'm not a real social person - I'm shy - and a lot of the business is just social.
I've just always believed you can get anything you want in this life - anything you want.
I feel there are two people inside me - me and my intuition. If I go against her, she'll screw me every time, and if I follow her, we get along quite nicely.
I grew up on soul music. I was a dancing little creep.
I'm a very determined businesswoman... I've got lots of things to do, and I don't have time to be classified as difficult, and I don't have time.
I remember that Jack Lemmon, who is one of my favorite actors of all time, says that the day he stops being nervous is the day he should leave the business.
My hand still shakes when I sign autographs. I still go and sit in the movies like everyone else and look up there and go 'God! Movie stars! Wow!' And I'm in this business. I walk out there just fascinated, and I always want to stay like that. I'm just a little kid going to these movies, and I don't ever want to change.
Clarity keeps you from boredom.
I think any girl who comes to Hollywood with sex symbol or bombshell hanging over her has a rough road.
I'm a very determined person.
I've been to fights, and I've seen them on television, but no, I would not call myself a fan of the sport, that particular sport, no.
My priorities had been changing before I had Addie but after she was born they changed completely. I don't count - my daughter sort of owns me.
There's no doubt that becoming a mother was the greatest thing I'll ever do.
With every project I've ever done, I've always treated it like I'm still in school. Each time you try to go a little further, get a little deeper, feel a little more, sculpt it a little better.
I like to see a driven kid: somebody who wants to come from the ground up. I love to see somebody who wants to be the best they can be.
I love to be nervous before a scene.
