All of us kids ended up 'doing Mom.' There are four of us who've tried show business. Five if you insist on counting my sister the nun, who does liturgical dance.

I think all phases of one's career are serious if you take it seriously no matter if you are doing high profile dramatic pieces or not.

People only talk about what a joyous experience it is, but there is terror: Your life, as you know it, is over. It's over the day that child is born. It's over, and something completely new starts.

I think that the online world has actually brought books back. People are reading because they're reading the damn screen. That's more reading than people used to do.

The studios don't seem to foster good writing. They're not so interested in that, but they're more interested in what worked most recently. They're definitely very serious about making money, and that's not a wrong thing, but you don't have to make money the same way all the time.

Here's the thing, you just have to drive a lot faster, and if you don't get there, we're both fired.

"I always want to say to people who want to be rich and famous: 'try being rich first'. "See if that doesn't cover most of it. There's not much downside to being rich, other than paying taxes and having your relatives ask you for money. But when you become famous, you end up with a 24-hour job."

In Japan, you have no idea what they are saying, and they can't help you either. Nothing makes any sense. They're very polite, but you feel like a joke is being played on you the entire time you're there.

I don't want to be that guy mumbling into his drink at a bar.
