I'd rather just be stuck at home watching Turner Classic Movies. I'm stuck with a book and old movies, that's pretty much the beginning and end of my life.
I'm Method trained. How is this character like me? What does she think of her mother? What does her mother think of her? It's like construction, and then, yes, you hope you're talented and that the universe aligns and captures the kind of laborer's work you've done and whatever else sprinkles down on you, and it's all caught on film or onstage.
The more powerful you become, some people especially don't like it that you're a woman. I stick up for myself.
Acting is a matter of giving away secrets.
My nickname was Skinabo - 'skin and bones.'
'Normal Heart' was my most transcendent moment as an actor.
It's no stretch to picture me standing next to Al Pacino or Robert De Niro. Those are ethnic New York men. I'm an ethnic New York girl. Everybody has their limitations. I mean, I should never be cast as Queen Elizabeth.
I'm a little more extreme than a homebody. Unless there's some event I really have to go to, I don't like to leave my house.
