Hollywood is run by men who are big on vulnerability.

I’ve worked with leading men so worried about losing their charm that they were always winking to the audience.

I’m not looking at money, percentage points or grosses. This is my life, you know? To me, every day matters.

I do need to be told when I’m going wrong. No one’s acting can be an exact, 100 percent science.

Some stars like to hide behind the whole idea of acting. But really good actors are not hiding at all. They’re not afraid to be disliked, to be a little unsavory.
