Today, I guess I give a lot more thought to the roles before I sign them.
I like to disappear in my roles because I don't have an assistant.
I'm drawn to roles because they excite me intellectually and emotionally.
In subsequent years the groups you named had important roles in educating people about the real issues in Washington and Raleigh, and within the Democratic Party.
There are roles I have said no to, but for different reasons. And, I never talk about those because I feel it's disrespectful to say, 'Oh, I said no to this project or that other project.' I'd rather talk about the ones that I said yes to and the reasons why.
I like roles that people don't recognize me in.
I've been told I'm too good looking for certain roles, but that's okay, it just motivates me to go deeper.
I know at some point I would like to take on more dramatic roles.
It's my job in Hollywood to find roles where I get to be a character not a bathing suit.
I'm a warrior when it comes to pursuing roles.
There seems to be great roles for women, and it's not necessarily - you don't have to be young women. Suddenly, we're realizing that, generally, women are interesting, and they can also be weird and crazy and mean.
I like to think I'm multi-faceted. Actually, my favorite roles are roles like in 'Far from Heaven.' Y'know. Soft people. Loving people.
I'd rather do a lot of movies than a TV series and do a lot of different roles than be stuck in one TV thing.
Everybody was trying to put me in action movies and heroic roles, and I wanted to find more complex things. They just didn't suit my taste, so I thought, 'OK, I have to be brave enough to say no.' And for a while, that hurt me immeasurably in the Hollywood world.
I feel fortunate that I'm able to play diverse roles. I don't think everybody in Hollywood gets the opportunity to do that.
