For a long time I was almost ashamed of being an movies actress. I felt like it was a shallow occupation. People would be watching my every move.

I live in San Francisco, I have an apartment in New York, but I'm here all the time. Nobody knows. .. . You can't stay away. I'm a San Franciscan to the bone.

I'm the happiest I've ever been. I'm not going to turn into Gloria Swanson and sit in my mansion watching my movies, with a crazy cigarette holder ... but I feel so blessed to have done the things that I've done.

You've got to grow up sometime.

I loved movies, but I can't remember ever really wanting to be an actress, and I certainly didn't imagine ever being in a movie. I think I wanted to be a writer.

I don't hang out with agents and producers and I'm not into the business side at all.

I love westerns. John Ford is one of the 10 best directors.
