I would say that Emma Stone and Emma Watson are two very talented young actresses who are very intelligent and have a great sense of humor and have learned to balance what they love with their acting career, and I think that's really a great thing.
My career is as an actress. I am an actress playing a comedienne.
I don't think anyone has the right to intrude in your life, but they do. I would like people to separate the actress and the woman.
Until 45 I can play a woman in love. After 55 I can play grandmothers. But between those ten years, it is difficult for an actress.
I became an actress because my mom wanted me to become an actress. It took me until my mid-30s to realize I actually didn't. I actually wanted to write and direct and be more involved in politics and humanitarian issues.

I have a lot of friends who do what I do. Either they're actresses or singers or things like that.
