I'm not the kind of actress who asks a lot of questions of my directors unless it's something I really need to know.
I graduated high school and I didn't have a skill set and I didn't want to go to college. I needed a job.
I have to say I've been lucky in that way in that I've been able to go from different films and different genres with different challenges.
I love accents - I wish I could find an accent for every one of my characters. It makes it so much easier when I don't have to hear my own voice.
I probably never would have been hired on Broadway had I not moved out to L.A. and pursued acting and film, which is sad, really.
I thought 'Out of Africa' would be a beautiful ballet.
I'm just grateful I didn't have to spend my early 20s in front of paparazzi cameras.
There's such a work ethic involved in theatre that you can't learn in L.A.
I knew I wanted to be a performer, but I didn't know I would specifically be in film. I actually never thought I would be in film. I always envisioned being on the stage.
I like not being noticed. It has been a struggle because I love performing, but if I'm in a group of people and someone has a bigger personality, I'm like, 'Go ahead, and have fun!'
I love talking, and I love communicating with people and hearing new ideas, but I do get very self-conscious about how I form my thoughts, and I tend to be somebody who acts from a very instinctual place and tries to live from a very instinctual place. So, on occasion, when I have to intellectualize an emotional experience, it's very hard for me.
I research every part thoroughly. I talk it out with my actor friends, but then I throw it all away when I get to the set. You have to be spontaneous.
If I had a project that I had auditioned for and I was getting close to getting it, I didn't want to tell anybody because I thought then I wouldn't get it, but in reality that really had no bearing on whether or not I got a part.
My job as an actress is to make things work and come up with reasons of my own and not just fill in the blanks for anybody else, you know what I mean?
School was hard for me. If there had been a school for the creative arts, I might have thrived, but... I needed that creative outlet so much. Also, I'm just bad with numbers.
