I never wore glasses except when I had to read a teleprompter at an awards show or drive, so I didn't notice much. I could exist in my head. It was kind of my escape from the world and my protection.
I think having my life be as private and quiet as possible is a way in which then I can go and play characters.
I'm a woman, a mother, a daughter, a sister. I'm a real person operating in the world. For me to discuss the most private thing feels wrong. It feels like I'm betraying myself and my children.
Even as a child I had a strong relationship with yearning and desire. And loss. Those things spoke to me.
