I really want to play Princess Leia. Stick some big pastries on my head. Now that would be interesting.

I'm just into making quality stuff if I can, with interesting people and good scripts. But it's very important that it's about something and that it says something. Otherwise, I don't know what the point is, really.

I'm lucky enough that financially I don't have to feel obliged to go for the bigger stuff. I like the stories and scripts to dictate if I want to do them.

I like to dance, but it's not my weekend activity. I'm not a clubber.

I especially love my Moto Guzzi.

I was nine years old when I made up my mind that that was what I definitely wanted to do.

You can be playing a line some way and the director wants you to change that, or you can disagree. But I always think that the creative conversation between director and actor is what leads to good work.
