Letter "A" » Acting
«Acting is about giving something away, handing yourself over to whatever role you are asked to play. I'm not hiding or escaping or seeking anonymity. I reserve the right not to have a rubber stamp on my forehead saying this is who I am. Because who I am gets in the way of people looking innocently at the parts I play.»
«Actors are willing to give their entire lives to a moment--to that line, that laugh, that gesture, or that interpretation that will stir the audience's soul.»
«Actors are beings who have tasted life's nectar in that crystal moment when they poured out their creative spirit and touched another's heart.»
«As an actor one does read Shakespeare and does try to learn the classics.»
«I’ve been offered a lot but I want to stay away from romance, comedies and fluffy work. I met Stephen Spielberg at a breast cancer benefit and he explained that he’d seen me on Saturday Night Live and thought I was ready for a movie. He said, ‘You go to the ledge and are unafraid to jump off.’ That was the biggest compliment to me because he was saying I was free.»
«I want to have something that's different to the way I've been portrayed. I admire Angelina Jolie - she acts tough but is still sexy.»
«I don't know if anyone will ever sit beside me on a plane again.»
«Actors become actors because they loved entertaining their family by putting on the lampshade and dancing around as a kid, ... That's not my personality. For me, the fun part of making movies is seeing it as a director sees it. I like the architecture of movies. I like knowing what's coming and working to set that up.»
«Claustrophobia makes it the perfect setting.»
«I'd really like to make my first movie before I make my next album.»
