I did find my direction at an early age.
I find that each job that I do, the thing that gets me there is when I'm not smarter than it, when I don't know instantly how that thing is made. Because if I do, then it's boring. Or it would be simple.
I started acting as a child in Community Theatre but I didn't do any serious stuff. It was all musicals like 'Annie' and 'Wizard of Oz.' I was always in the chorus.
Every movie I make I find kind of excruciating. I get a lot back from it, but I feel like I'm kind of always working at the edge of my ability. I guess that's what I'm looking for when I go to work. I am trying to become the edge.
I was raised on all those princess fairy tales and I'm a romantic; I want to be a one-man girl.
When I work I'm not nervous. Work is this fabulous free zone. There's no judgment. My problems arrive when I'm not working.
Perfection can only be two-dimensional. You can make a picture perfect, and maybe that's why I like film, it's imperfect because it's in motion. I keep trying to think of our home and our life like that, it doesn't have to look a certain way, just feel a certain way.
