When you are getting ready to become a mom, being in love with someone just isn't enough. You need to think about whether he would be a good parent and raise your children with similar beliefs.
If you were to destroy the belief in immortality in mankind, not only love but every living force on which the continuation of all life in the world depended, would dry up at once.
Belief consists in accepting the affirmations of the soul; unbelief, in denying them.
As an artist, you dream about accumulating enough successful music to someday do just one greatest-hits album, but to reach the point where you're releasing your second collection of hits is beyond belief.
People say it's a movie about boxing, but... I don't agree at all. I don't think it's a movie about boxing. Boxing is like a platform. It's just a stage where this is played out.
Again, in Wag the Dog, war has to be declared by an act of congress. But if you go to war, you don't have to declare war. You're just at war and we did that, which is not legal.
You always have this fear in a movie of just being somebody's woman.
I'm so happy in the projects that I'm able to make, to be involved in projects like this. This isn't always where it was at for me, I started working when I was a kid. I'm just a different person now, I'm 30. I started working when I was 11 and it's a different ballgame.
I'm lucky enough that directors sometimes seek me out for little projects that people don't even know about, that just surface later on.
Mel is a great director because he's not just a director, he's an actor, so he knows how to direct actors. I loved working with him. He's great as a director. He's so intelligent. He's generous. I really loved him.
I just adored working with Woody. He was more than I could have ever dreamed of. I'd do it a million times over.
Don't think, just do.
I would just never out anybody. I think everyone has to find it in their own way and their own time.
It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.
I wouldn't say pop stars hit on me - that's just stuff the papers make up.
A lot of people just go to movies that feed into their preexisting and not so noble needs and desires: They just go to action pictures, and things like that.
I became quite successful very young, and it was mainly because I was so enthusiastic and I just worked so hard at it.
A lot of the films I've made probably could have worked just as well 50 years ago, and that's just because I have a lot of old-fashion values.
Now, the external work of man is of the most varied kind as regards the force or ease, the form and rapidity, of the motions used on it, and the kind of work produced.
I would like just one time to be on the cover of Italian Vogue.
I would really, really, really like to be a legend like Madonna. Madonna knows what to do next, and when she's performing, the audience is just in awe of her.
I am always easy of belief when the creed pleases me.
The camera makes you forget you're there. It's not like you are hiding but you forget, you are just looking so much.
Believe that with your feelings and your work you are taking part in the greatest; the more strongly you cultivate this belief, the more will reality and the world go forth from it.
If I were sent to Siberia, it would not surprise me. I would even prefer to just be a maid than go on living like this. You will pay for your apathy.
