"I’m an actor.""How has being an actor differed from your initial expectations?""Well, I think everyone decides to become an actor from a place of love. But when it becomes your job, there’s an adjustment, because suddenly you are in competition with other people for your livelihood. And some people can’t handle it. I’ve been lucky enough to find work my entire life. But I’ve seen a lot of talented people who weren’t so lucky." "So what separates you from the talented people who weren’t able to find work?""I’ve always been very driven.

Because as you progress, you’re eventually going to run up against people who are both talented and driven."

Even if [Thelma and Louise] was the most man-bashing movie ever made, saying, ‘let’s all of us women get guns and kill men’, it wouldn’t even begin to make up for the 99% of movies where the women are there to be caricatured as bimbos or to be skinned and decapitated. If you’re feeling threatened, you’re sympathizing with the wrong character.
