I was a fighter and very determined. There was no way I was going to back out without winning.
A friend of mine described it this way: When they were born it was like a meteor landed in our house and blew everything apart. We had to just put all the pieces back.
I don't want to fight aging; I want to take good care of myself, but plastic surgery and all that? I'm not interested.
Competition is very good... as long as its healthy. It's what makes one strive to be better.
I'm more proud of quitting smoking than of anything else I've done in my life, including winning an Oscar.
It was not really a career choice that I had to make. It was something I knew right from the beginning. I had to be an actress... period.
I think all industries are sexist in nature and I don't think the film industry is any different.
My heart's in really great shape thanks to spinning classes.
I wanted to be an actress. In college I was a serious feminist and very political. I was determined to get one thing out of my career and that was respect. I didn't want money. I didn't care about fame.
Its only when you are a great actor and are recognised for your good work that you become famous. Unless you are in the news for the wrong reasons!
Television really does offer still great parts for women, cable in particular.
I most often land up taking up the roles that I most detest.
I would take up any small job on the sets, just so that I could hang around with the hope of getting noticed.
When I was first starting out, if you were acting on television, it was a real stigma.
Sure I faced the troubles and challenges that most actors and actresses face until they get noticed, but I was always confident of myself and my capabilities.
