I had a world of people raising me; it was like a little village.
All my cousins steal things. They're just a bunch of thieves. My whole family is like that. You put something down for a second, and they steal it. You never see it again.
I don't think it should be allowed for people to start working at a young age and not take the time to just be living as themselves in the real world, especially now in this new age of new media and the obsession with celebrity. I think it's a real crime.
I don't know how people do this waxing thing. Now I just have all these bumpy ingrown hairs.
When people are struggling, that's a painful place to be in, to not know who you are and where you belong and what you desire.
The early part of my career was the 1990s, and I was living in New York working as an actor. It was the world I was in. A lot of companies had a great deal of money.
There's plenty of great independent films to do, but you can't support yourself making independent film as an actress.
Going into my 20s, I was uncertain, trying to figure out what my relationship to acting is.
I don't watch a lot of T.V. I only watch things via Netflix, so I only watch the things that I'm choosing to watch.
I think being on a set where people aren't being treated as equals, and with just a common level of decency and respect, is really uncomfortable.
I think I happened to work with sort of a bunch of slightly difficult male directors when I was a kid. I've since worked with lots of male directors that I love, so I no longer see the distinction gender-wise.
My mom was a single mother, raising my sister and me. My mom has an incredible talent for living in the world without traditional structure, and her friend, who was in advertising, put me in a commercial when I was five. It was just to make money.
I've been told by many people that if I had a Twitter account, I would be making five hundred thousand dollars more a year.
Acting was something that I grew up just doing. I certainly never thought about it.
I don't know if I'd say I feel green, but I'm getting to know myself as an actor now in a way that I never did as a kid.
