I sort of have a love affair with my work. Many of us work far too hard and we don't put enough value in the epicurean, sensual part of life.
There's a look people get in their eyes when you're talking to them and they're not seeing you, and you know it's because they have a movie running through their head.
If I didn't work in television or film, if I didn't have the right look, I never took it personally. Because there was always the theatre. I'm not a nihilist, I'm an optimist. And that has served me well in this profession.
I don't know many women who can relate to Sharon Stone and the kind of movies she does. I don't know a lot of guys who can relate to Tom Cruise's movies because they're on a kind of fantastic level. I like movies I can relate to.
