Committing yourself to one person is sacred.
Well, right now, I’m very fascinated with 1920s Berlin. I mean, probably the more interesting thing would be to go to the beginning of civilization or precivilization – like polytheistic times. It would be interesting to see what came before modern religion and culture – what circumstances created the environment or the need for it.
I don’t know if acting is what I want to do for the rest of my life, it’s just what I’ve, you know, ended up doing when I was little, and I’ve kinda grown up with it.
I was, like, a total cliched ’80s child. I had Barbies, obviously, as well as My Little Ponies and Cabbage Patch Kids, but I used to destroy them. I used to draw all over their faces and cut off their hair.
I want every version of a woman and a man to be possible. I want women and men to be able to be full-time parents or full-time working people or any combination of the two.
I love being a mum, but it’s much more intensive work than being an actress – going to work feels like you’ve got a day off. Not that I want a day off from being a mum; it’s just perhaps I had this impression before that mums don’t work. But they work more than anyone.
I don’t have a normal job, so I really appreciate having friends who are writers and artists. It’s fun to have a group of people you can call in the middle of the day to go for a hike.
There are movies where we are interested in seeing people’s lives without agreeing with what they’re doing.
‘Star Wars’ hasn’t changed my life at all.
New York is more where art is bought than where art is made.
It scares me to think that one day I’m not going to be in school anymore.
If you’re an actress or a musician, everyone thinks you’re hot.
I’d like it if people thought I was Jewish looking.
I was really into dancing, taking six classes a week, and my real dream was to be in a Broadway show.
I don’t know who would not classify themselves as a romantic. I think that would be sort of sad.
