And that's what's beautiful to me, is he did not become a victim of it, and he didn't become a statistic, he just kind of kept on marching through, no matter what people threw at him.
Just the actual physical ability to hold four instruments simultaneously and do some of the things that Vivien was able to do is mind blowing to any surgeon. He never went to medical school and he became one of the great teachers of medicine himself, people are just amazed.
The fact that he didn't get credit for a while is more the story of social injustice. But his own spirit wasn't driven by that, and wasn't dependent upon that. He just wished he had the cash to go to medical school.
I feel very privileged that I get to spend my life telling stories that mean something to people.

As a director, I get to have a much broader creative expression than as an actress.
I love film sets, but I don't necessarily love being the center of attention.

I don't read reviews, There's no value for me in reading them. Whether they're good or bad, they'll just make me self-conscious.
I learn a lot from acting, but it's not my natural way. I can't help but write; I do it all the time. It's a condition of being for me.
I learned from Francis Ford Coppola to treat the company like your family.
I guess you should approach the roles differently when they're actual people who have been, this is the difference. Getting the accent exact, or the hair exact is less important in a situation like this.
