I hope America can also be the cultural leader of the world, and use this frontier spirit to lead and show others that we need courage to go places where we have not gone before.
Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.
I want to test my maximum and see how much I can do. And I want to change the world of swimming.
To live anywhere in the world today and be against equality because of race or color is like living in Alaska and being against snow.
I want the concentration and the romance, and the worlds all glued together, fused, glowing: have no time to waste any more on prose.
I am trying to teach my children to feel a responsibility for their fellow human beings and a sense of connection with... the world around them.
I wanted very much to do Traffic and at one point it looked like I was going to work on it. And then, of course, Catherine Zeta-Jones had her relationship with Michael Douglas and it suddenly didn't happen.
The only things that the United States has given to the world are skyscrapers, jazz, and cocktails. That is all. And in Cuba, in our America, they make much better cocktails.
Since I was 12 or 13, I have been taking movie meetings finding a project right for me because I wanted to try it. Craig gave us the script - it was set in Wales, it is really British humour. I just loved it.
I try to do a lot of research beforehand so I know where I want to go with a scene. I try not to get too stressed about it, because I find that's the worst thing.
No. I mean those people really did something for designers I don't think department stores can, could or should do still today. Today the world is different so you have to make it differently. There's TV. There's a lot of things.
I want to try and work in different genres with different types of actors, on small movies and big movies.

That is a Medieval way of drawing history, in which they do not respect the law and want the rest of the world to respect the law. That's not possible.
The people I distrust most are those who want to improve our lives but have only one course of action.

Irreversible is not glamorous at all. I try to do different things because I want to grow as an actress and I like to take risks.
