What are we blaming? Is this Vietnam? We made a movie, it didn't make much money. I'm gonna be really happy if somebody watches it in 10 years' time and really enjoys it.
I started taking singing classes just two years ago. It was great. I never knew I could sing but I kind of found my voice.
I stopped working a few years ago because I just lost a spark that I'd had before. I thought I'd just try writing, and maybe start directing, but I did it very quietly.
My mother brought me magicians and witches, because I was very ugly, really revolting. So she thought somebody had put a spell on me - this is the truth - so she made me drink some horrible terrifying potions, for year.
I grew up on musicals, and I know they are quite the thing now, but I'm actually a little indignant, because I started taking singing lessons years ago-I put the time in!
They offered me one cover about 10 years ago, and I said, no, I can't do it. I'm happy to cover up now.

Some years ago I gave a concert in the mountains with snow all around, and that was much colder.

I like travelling and if I have to come to Hollywood to make a movie I will, but otherwise I'd never move there. It's very much an industry town and that doesn't really interest me.
I didn't really enjoy the assembling the model kits very much, and usually I couldn't be bothered to paint the thing, or even to stick on the decals.
I had some things I had to fix. It took me 14 years to do it. But it was never really fun back in the day to work with directors who were a lot older and were like authoritarian and talking to you like that.
I'm at a time in my life that for me to go back to work it has to be something I feel really passionate about; otherwise I'm not as interested.
You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you.

My own way of thinking is to ponder long and I hope deeply on problems and for a long time which I keep away for years and years and I never really let them go.
