Playing Etta James in the movie 'Cadillac Records' really changed me. It was a darker character, and I realized that if anything is too comfortable, I want to run from it. It's no fun being safe.
When you're a pop star, it's a little conservative; you always have to stay in a box. You have fans that are five and fans that are 65; there are so many people wanting so many things.
We all have our imperfections. But I'm human, and you know, it's important to concentrate on other qualities besides outer beauty.
I mean, I feel like you get more bees with honey. But that doesn't mean I don't get frustrated in my life.
Herman J. Mankiewicz
