To me, movies and music go hand in hand. When I'm writing a script, one of the first things I do is find the music I'm going to play for the opening sequence.
I love making independent movies, and that's pretty much what I'm going to be doing for the rest of my years.
By going to the movies, and because of other things, too, going to college, making a wide variety of friends, moving around traveling, I became a lot more open-minded than the heritage I was born into might have suggested.
I love to read, I love to watch movies, and I love to be with my children.
I would love to spend all my time writing to you; I'd love to share with you all that goes through my mind, all that weighs on my heart, all that gives air to my soul; phantoms of art, dreams that would be so beautiful if they could come true.
Often, I went in love with some friends in school. And, no, I suffered. Only later, things went better.
Are some women and children going to die? Yeah. But it's doing the right thing. You got money, you sit around talking about peace. People who don't have money need some help.
You know I could stop working as an actress and still be doing promotion on movies I did ten years ago. And I don't like to do the same thing forever.
Having been the discoverer of many splendid things, he is said to have asked his friends and relations that, after his death,they should place on his tomb a cylinder enclosing a sphere, writing on it the proportion of the containing solid to that which is contained.
When people protest and are upset with a movie, it becomes a big hit. They hated Passion of The Christ, it worked out pretty well for the box office. So let's get that going.
Maybe philosophy - I love talking about ideas. Or maybe art history. I was thinking about psychology, then I got really afraid because everybody says it's terribly boring.
There's always pressure, from other people and yourself. If you're happy with the looks you're born with, then what are you going to do your whole life?. We keep thinking up new things and finding better ways of doing things because we're not happy with what we're given.
If you can speak what you will never hear, if you can write what you will never read, you have done rare things.
You just never know when movies are going to take off or not. The lucky thing about this was that it didn't cost a lot of money, and therefore there wasn't loads of pressure on me.
I loved history because to me, history was like watching a movie.
The truth is - I found myself doing these huge action-adventure movies, and um, and which are cool man. And I really love doing them. And thankfully I haven't had too much dialogue, because if I had I would have really made a mess of it. You know what I mean?
I don't know what better teenage life you could get than going around the world doing what you love to do.
And I love a scary movie. It makes your toes curl and it's not you going through it.
I love to mix it up. I love to keep doing different things.
You ought to love what you're doing because, especially in a movie, over time you really will start to hate it.
I like going everywhere. And I love starting new things.
And doing a film in that period, and having to really celebrate what they wore back then, how they sat and how they spoke. You know, what the etiquette was back then for a lady. All of those things are like putting on a wig and transforming yourself, which I love.
I think I have always tried to do the smaller films. I like to jump around and there is something really nice for acting in a smaller film. But I think now, Hollywood's movies certainly involve a younger generation for the most part and so... I love going back and forth.
The young Japanese, especially, love to wear the latest thing and when they come to London they head for my shops as part of what they want to find in Britain.
I got to read some writings by serial killers, and they got inside my head. They were quite disturbing. I read disturbing stuff about that very detached way of manipulating people to do things.
