I never wanted to be a man. I feel sorry for them.
It's gotten out of control. It's taking bigger and bigger names to make smaller and smaller movies. I worry that important films without a big name attached won't get made at all.
I love the chemistry that can be created onstage between the actors and the audience. It's molecular even, the energies that can go back and forth. I started in theater. and when I first went into movies I felt that my energy was going to blow out the camera.
I think the diva is kind of a cliche. My definition of a diva is somebody whose talent does not match what they're trying to play, so all this temperament comes out.
You have to love the characters you play, even if no one else does.
As an actor, I go where the good writing is. That's the bottom line.
It is very difficult for girls. They're told to look one way, but to act another way.
When they tested Fatal Attraction, the audiences were so upset by her behavior, they literally demanded her blood.
The Oscars for me is a huge honor to be recognized for whatever you've done, the body of work or movie you're being recognized for. But I'm not alone in my profession in thinking it's a bit crazy to say who's better than the other one because you're talking about art and artists.
