I've never been an actor who goes and really gets off on being nuts and never gets out of it. There would be times when I would be crying for hours and hours and hours, but mostly they were in and out of the picture. There were times to go hide and times to come out and play.

I was shaking all over. I didn't like it and I felt that way when we shot the sequences, but I thought my character felt that way.

My agent said, 'You aren't good enough for movies.' I said, 'You're fired.'

But there isn't any second half of myself waiting to plug in and make me whole. It's there. I'm already whole.

I really have no ulterior motive in taking on certain roles. I have no larger issue that I really want to show people. I'm an actor, that's all. I just do what I do . . .

It's put ... together into a cohesive, chronological line of events.

I was raised to sense what someone wanted me to be and be that kind of person. It took me a long time not to judge myself through someone else's eyes.

I've never held a gun. I've never shot a gun. I don't ever want to do it again.

I can't deny the fact that you like me! You like me!
