We give a lot of others significance in our lives even when they don’t deserve it. It doesn’t matter if they’re family or if you’ve known them forever. If they’re not good for you they’ve got to go.
Just like I find men who talk sports who don’t really know sports annoying I think men might find women who don’t really have a true passion and knowledge of sports maybe not so attractive.
Reality TV looks more like America than movies do.
I love romantic comedies. They’re for me the easiest thing to do and the most natural to do. There’s nothing natural about holding an uzi hanging out of a moving van shooting at people. That’s not second nature to me thank God.
When you want a break from dogs and you take them to the kennel to the stars no one thinks you’re a bad pet owner. But when you have kids you can’t drop them off for three weeks without someone calling Child Protective Services!
If someone lacked decency or respect I didn’t allow that person to stay in my world.
I think I’m drawn to more villain-type characters because it’s so cool to get to say all the things you want to say. In Hollywood you get to this position where you have to bite your tongue so much. You take all your experiences of not being able to say what you really want to say and channel that through your character.
I like directors who have worked as actors. They know the experience.
You get so afraid of failure and so afraid of losing and so afraid of not being the best that it’s not a natural drive – it’s born out of fear of failure. Which helps in Hollywood.
In Hollywood you play a mom and the next thing you know you’re on ‘The Golden Girls.’ They age you so fast.
