"A woman my age is not supposed to be attractive or sexually appealing. I just get kinda tired of that."
"I feel I get recognized for my voice more than for my face."
"I often play women who are not essentially good or likable, and I often go through a stage where I hate them. And then I find the reasons why they are that way, and end up loving and defending them."
"It's always been my first love, I never feel more alive than when I'm on stage. On film you feel chopped up, you can be acting from the neck up, or the hand, there is a lot of close up."
"I'm not a naturalistic actor. I believe acting is a planned process of communication. I don't see anything naturalistic about it."
It begins and ends with money. It's absurd in this day and age when we need so much money for education, health, for people, that a $100 million dollars can be spent on a film. It's obscene.
What we need is more women writers, writing for older women. There are some actresses who have production companies and create their own material, and I truly admire that.
A woman can plan when to have her family and how to support a family.
I rent houses in LA when I'm filming. I find the isolation there terrifying. There's nowhere to go, there's nowhere to be with people. I'm not a beach bunny.
I think Europeans have enough tradition and respect for the experience and body of work of an actress that they don't sell out to the new ones.
The older I get, the less I suffer fools gladly.
My father was a diplomatic officer. As a diplomat's daughter, you have to learn to present yourself very early on.
I know there are nights when I have power, when I could put on something and walk in somewhere, and if there is a man who doesn't look at me, it's because he's gay.
I think my mission is to become the greatest human I can. I know that sounds pompous, but what else do we have?
Get more women producers, writers, directors. Why should we expect men to do it for us? They can't.
