If I had my way, if I was lucky enough, if I could be on the brink my entire life - that great sense of expectation and excitement without the disappointment - that would be the perfect state.
There's this sense that of course you want to be famous. When you're a performer of course you want an audience, but it's very, very different from courting fame.
I care about climate change because of our children. I want to safeguard their future.
I think it's so easy to be judgmental of other people's decisions.
It was only when I realized how actors have the power to move people that I decided to pursue acting as a career.
I'm not focused on what other people think of me.
I'm incredibly fortunate to have met the intelligent, generous, risk-taking, stimulating man to whom I am married. He's really amazing.
