There's a lot of skeletons in my closet, but I know what they're wearing. I'm not gonna act all ashamed of it.
When I had dark hair I definitely felt that I was more anonymous.
I always love being in the company of women. It's all about good conversation and great wine.
The biggest place I look for validation is from my mother. That's the little girl in me that will never grow up.
I'm not this dark, twisted person. Yes, I have my demons and this is my way of exorcising them. It gets them out - and better out than in.
I'm a tomboy now. I always wanted to fit in with my brother's group, so I climbed trees and played with lead soldiers. But I'm a woman's woman. I never understood women who don't have woman friends.
I had gotten to a place where I truly believed everything I was called: 'not sexy,' 'not funny,' 'too intense,' desperate.' All those labels they gave me, I took them because there wasn't a trace of my true self left.
Oh, I'm definitely a wild child.
Pain is such an important thing in life. I think that as an artist you have to experience suffering.
You won't find me in a romantic comedy. Those movies don't speak to me. People don't come to talk to me about those scripts, because they probably think I'm this dark, twisted, miserable person.
Mum put me in drama classes when I was about 14. I'd been going on about it for some time, so maybe it was a way to shut me up.
There's a set of rules out there somewhere that says it all ends by 40. I hope to be able to defy that because I truly love my work.
You have to make peace with yourself. The key is to find the harmony in what you have.
If I have to produce movies, direct movies, whatever to change the way Hollywood treats older women, I'll do it. If I have to bend the rules, I will. If I have to break them, I will.
It's always nerve-racking to take off your clothes on film. But doing it with a woman felt safer than with a man. You know you can say, 'Don't grab me there: That's where my cellulite is'!
On set is where I feel comfortable. The red carpet stuff, talking about the film, explaining your own life, it doesn't come naturally. It's all necessary stuff I suppose but it's not my strength.
That's one of the lucky things about getting the success later on. I know how I want to dress, I know what kind of house I want to live in, I just know more about myself, and that's true about the roles I want to play and what parts of myself I want to express. You're just more in touch with yourself.
There was a time I was very much blaming the way I felt on L.A, that it was a vacuum of creativity, of humor or anything organic, and I was really angry at the place. But then today I feel completely different - I love L.A.!
I find myself gravitating towards drama. It interests me. In the books I read, the paintings I like, it's always the darker stuff.
We're so afraid of death in our culture, but I think if we understand it better, then we'll appreciate the life we have more.
