I sometimes feel like I could do another job. Anything. Maybe because as an actress you're playing different characters, everything feels possible.
It is something actresses need to go through and I think they look forward to being naked in a movie. I don't know why, but it is something you need to exhaust from yourself.
I used to think as I looked out on the Hollywood night - there must be thousands of girls sitting alone like me, dreaming of becoming a movie star. But I'm not going to worry about them. I'm dreaming the hardest.
Keep smiling, because life is a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about.
A sex symbol becomes a thing. I hate being a thing.
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.
Love and work are the only two real things in our lives. They belong together, otherwise it is off. Work is in itself a form of love.
What do I wear in bed? Why, Chanel No. 5, of course.
She was a girl who knew how to be happy even when she was sad. And that's important - you know.
Dogs never bite me. Just humans.
From now on, I approach the cinema as a business woman. I intend to be in more action movies because, apart from Angelina Jolie, no other actress stands out in this genre.
I started out as a lousy actress and have remained one.
I knew I belonged to the public and to the world, not because I was talented or even beautiful, but because I had never belonged to anything or anyone else.
I actually made an effort to reject acting, to shove it out of my body, because I didn't want my kids to have an actress as a mother-to have, like, a silly person.
I hated singing. I wanted to be an actress. But I don't think I'd have made it any other way.
I'm only realizing now that I was a child actress because I always took myself so seriously.
As a mother, you feel much more vulnerable. And when you're vulnerable, you're a much better actress.
I have an older sister named Haley and she wanted to be an actress. So I wanted to be an actress. It's really funny the way that some people don't give kids enough credit for like really being driven, and really wanting to do things so badly.
If I play a stupid girl and ask a stupid question, I've got to follow it through, what am I supposed to do, look intelligent?
It was not like I was taking myself seriously and being like, OK, now I'm going to be an actress and I'm going to do a Shakespeare movie.
It's often just enough to be with someone. I don't need to touch them. Not even talk. A feeling passes between you both. You're not alone.
Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.
As an actress we don't beat one another. It's whoever's right for the part.
I never really thought about being an actress or being anything like that. I was always a bit scared as well because of the thing about models becoming an actress and all that.
The nicest thing for me is sleep, then at least I can dream.
