Weird people follow you in the streets you can’t sit alone in a restaurant or a cafe and read a book in peace and I think everybody values those moments of being alone.
My dad took me to all the best rock and punk shows when I was growing up and music has always been a part of my life. So I’m very interested in the music scene and I suppose that’s why I’ve ended up going out with musicians. Dave Pirner is still one of my best friends.
It’s an indication of how cynical our society has become that any kind of love story with a sad theme is automatically ridiculed as sentimental junk.
It’s also a question of finding good material and interesting roles. I’m not the only actress out there and good parts just don’t fall into your lap that easily. But I like most of the films I’ve made recently and so I’m pretty positive about the future.
I think I’m learning to be bolder in my career choices and be more confident in my personal life. I haven’t always felt very secure as an individual but now I feel I certain confidence and sense of self that gets me through the day a lot better than before.
I have this sense that I didn’t really start growing up until my twenties.
You’ve got to grow up sometime.
