I have a very highly developed sense of denial.
There's something that sort of weirds me out about actors who want to be rock stars, and the other way around too.
I was very interested in art and art history. I probably would have pursued that somehow - working in a gallery or an auction house.
I understand what it feels like not to like aspects of yourself. There have been times that I have felt really terrible about the way I look. I have the seed of that feeling.
The Jewish part of me is superstitious.
In the theater, you go from point A to point Z, building your performance as the evening progresses. You have to relinquish that control on a film.
Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.
I've had a very interesting career. I get to do amazing things and work with amazing people and travel and learn languages - things most people don't get the opportunity to do.
I try to remember, as I hear about friends getting engaged, that it's not about the ring. It's a grave thing, getting married.
If we were living in ancient Rome or Greece, I would be considered sickly and unattractive. The times dictate that thin is better for some strange reason, which I think is foolish.
I say what I think, and I stand behind what I say.
I wasn't the high-school play queen or anything. And my parents would let me act until I graduated from college.
My dad always said he couldn't remember a time when I did not want to act.
As I absorbed life here and understood it better, I just completely fell in love with England.
I put on the fat suit and went outside and walked around. I was really nervous about being found out, but nobody would even make eye contact with me. It really upset me.
Because I was newly pregnant, I was sick as a dog, yet I knew all my lines from a year before.
To have to imagine everything, sometimes it is a little bit daunting. Especially when they would tell you to react to something.
Sometimes when things you love get really commercial, you end up feeling betrayed by it.
My father, he was like the rock, the guy you went to with every problem.
Jack Black is incredibly hilarious. I think he's really appealing, so sexy. When I watched the movie, I really thought he was sexy.
I was having such a hard time when I made Sylvia. I gave everything I had for that role. It's one or two or three things I'm most proud of in terms of my work. But it was very dark.
Women were real box office stars in the '40s, more so than men. People loved to see women's films. I think it was better then, except for the studio system.
The adrenaline of a live performance is unlike anything in film or theater. I can see why it's so addictive.
Our marriage is between us. If we decide to continue being together or not, it's our business.
It's a waste of time for people to say things they think other people want to hear, or try and come off in a certain way. I try to be as honest as I can.
