I think I have a reputation for being quite shy, but I don't think I'm too shy. I guess I lived in a bit of a fantasy space in my mind.
I don't consider myself a starlet or a Hollywood person.
As an actor you have to wait for someone to cast you, so you're relying on the business.
I've been honoured to portray such intelligent and sophisticated roles.
Fame is useful in certain ways, because it helps you get more roles.
Often, if I read a story and I'm moved, I have an understanding for a character and I don't really know why.
All the time that I'm acting with an animated character, I'm looking at a tennis ball or sticky tape or an eyeline or a man in a green suit. There's no real environment, just this electric green that's blaring into your brain.
It's never been about the blockbusters and making a huge ton of money. It's always been about wanting to do projects about the things that I think are important to be out there, because there's a lot of stuff that probably doesn't need to be.
