I'm always open to a relationship, but I'm not putting those feelers out there now.
I think today women are very scared to celebrate themselves, because then they just get labeled.
I like what I do, and I'm very fortunate now to be in a very nice place. Which is that I don't have to work anymore. So the work that I do now is purely because I really want to.
If they ever do my life story, whoever plays me needs lots of hair color and high heels.
You can never get to a place of comfort in this business. As soon as you hit that little cushy spot, somebody's gonna kick you out. So I have a constant need to do it better.
I have a problem with cabinets being messy and people just shoving things in and closing the door. I will lie in bed and not be able to sleep because I'll say to myself: 'I think I saw something in that cabinet that just shouldn't be there.'
So far I'm not surprised by anything about being a mom. It's all pretty great - but that's what I expected.
There's only so much you can do, but if somebody doesn't give you a chance there is nothing you can do.
I can only hope to be 10 percent of the mom mine was to me. She encouraged me to be confident and enjoy life. That's what I want for my son.
I am a relationship girl. That's kind of just how I'm made... When you're in my life, it's actually very contained.
I had called her up a couple of weeks before then, because I had heard this vicious rumour that she did not like the movie. It was very upsetting for me. I am very sensitive to that, because I am portraying her life and did not want her to be unhappy.
Something I learned very early on in my career is that there are a lot of things that you do not have any power over.
I have OCD, which is not fun. I have to be incredibly tidy and organized or it messes with my mind and switches off on me.
I treat my relationships like marriages. The ceremony isn't that important to me.
I only worked on Men of Honor for three weeks, but I walked away with so much. Because Bob is the kind of actor who gives you the opportunity to really go there. And we really had to go there. I mean, we were both playing drunks.
From the moment this baby came into our home, those two dogs have never been more in love. It's the most beautiful thing I've ever witnessed. People keep saying, 'Oh, you're a single mom.' I'm like, 'Actually, I'm not. I've got two boys helping.'
I guess there are very few actors that I've worked with that I would like to work with again. You never think you'll have that chance and, if we didn't do Italian Job together, there wouldn't be another one that could be right.
I was going to go to Macchu Picchu and then I just ended up working the whole year.
At least I know that one film-maker in my career has had the initiative to come to me and thought of me as being capable of doing interesting and complicated work, and so I have a new-found belief that other film-makers will see me in a different way, the way that Patty did.
I mean I tried to transform myself through characters throughout my career.
If I don't like seeing myself on the screen, I think when I start seeing that, that's when I think I'll stop.
And I was victim to that very early in my career, where I would go into auditions, and I'd be wearing a big T shirt, a big baggy T shirt and loose jeans. You know, to try and show people that there was more to me than just that.
There's nothing I despise more than people trying to be something that they're not.
I guess because I pay so much attention to the physical part of the character, I don't look upon it as like Charlize Theron up there. I don't think of them as like Charlize Theron films.
And doing a film in that period, and having to really celebrate what they wore back then, how they sat and how they spoke. You know, what the etiquette was back then for a lady. All of those things are like putting on a wig and transforming yourself, which I love.
When I'm working I don't have room to think about myself and my own issues. It's really freeing. There is no room for me, which is really nice.
At the end, the realization is that she had to get to a place in her life where she could drop her guard and make peace with the fact that whether she had a small amount of time, that she had to kind of live it completely through, instead of living by the rules.
People are so involved with immediate care, but at the same time there needs to be investment in educating people as adolescents when they're still HIV negative.
I think substitution is a huge part of acting, but I don't personalise my work that much.
My mom has made it possible for me to be who I am. Our family is everything. Her greatest skill was encouraging me to find my own person and own independence.
If I knew that 3D was going to be such a big deal, I would have gotten that boob job 10 years ago.
I grew up on Bette Davis movies, and Marlene Dietrich, Marilyn Monroe.
They really stay just characters to me. I look at them, and I don't see always the same person up there. And hopefully, people will see that too. Because it's very easy to bore people, and that's a killer. So hopefully that won't happen.
I have very talented people dress me and put my makeup on, stuff like that. But I do love that look, and I think it's maybe because I grew up on that old glamour.
And I do think that earlier in my career, I did make a very conscious decision to make sure that I was doing work that wasn't necessarily given to me, and that people didn't necessarily think that I would be able to do.
I'm happy for people who want to get married. It's not my thing.
You always have this fear in a movie of just being somebody's woman.
I learned everything about love, watching 'Splash.' That's why I'm still single, so thanks Tom Hanks and Daryl Hannah for that.
I have been working a lot, and I like it. And you know, it's hard for me not to. I guess I've been working a lot because I get to play with brilliant people.
I grew up in South Africa and I would look at maps and we were at the bottom of the world. There was this whole thing up there. I was always reading encyclopedias about the world. So travel was something I was always attracted to.
You know, I don't think any mother aims to be a single mom. I didn't wish for that, but it happened.
