I wanted to escape Small Town U.S.A. To dismiss the boundaries to explore. My life experience came from watching movies TV and reading books and magazines. When your culture comes from watching TV everyday you’re bombarded with images of things that seem cool places that seem interesting people who have jobs and careers and opportunities.
I want to be a cool mom.
I think when you’re winning your uniforms are cool.
I think the great sketch shows like ‘Python’ and ‘Mr. Show’ they didn’t stick around for very long. There’s something kind of cool about that.
I think that was a moment of cool panic there.
I think I’ve been incredibly raw my whole career. A lot of people spend a lot of time trying to look cool and spend time being guarded and putting up walls. I just never had the time. It seems more honest to say ‘Hey this is who I am.’
I remember in high school trying to get home from water-polo practice in time so I could see Happy Days on television when it first came on because I was so blown away by it. It was just such a cool thing.
I remember my first test in F1. After five laps I came back to the pits and tried to play it cool – ‘Oh yeah I’m fine I’m on top of this’ – but I was completely lost.
I read the script for Wonder Boys and I said that was almost perfect it was so classy cool and funny. It’s a really specific thing. We stuck to it it turned out good and a lot of people liked it.
I really really love Hilary Clinton. I think she’s very cool. She’s out there and she’s involved.
