I think we all think we sound really good in the shower, where there's that nice reverb, and the water's drowning you out, and there is some liberation in the freedom of being totally alone and really going for it.

Some suggestions for you :

Having been let out of the barn once, I know I wouldn't be happy if I were home all the time.

If I am not confident that I can portray the character perfectly on screen, I won't even try.

There are improbable things suspended in space, like the earth.

It's a good thing to imagine yourself doing something you think you can't. I do that every day because, basically, if I had it my way, I'd just stay home and think about what I'm having for supper.

I'm thrilled when I get nominated. I don't count how many and I don't remember how many I've had. I just know it's a lot.

Obsession is an attractive thing. People who are really, really interested and good at one thing and smart are attractive, if they're men.

Don't waste so much time thinking about how much you weigh. There is no more mind-numbing, boring, idiotic, self-destructive diversion from the fun of living.

Sometimes with my children, I remember exactly how I felt as the child in this situation, not just how it feels to be me.

The reason I chose the movies that I did was based on where they were being filmed.

I think your self emerges more clearly over time.

I'm all over the place.

People say, When you have children, everything changes. But maybe things are awakened that were already there.

Some people are filled by compassion and a desire to do good, and some simply don't think anything's going to make a difference.

Grace, respect, reserve, and empathetic listening are qualities sorely missing from the public discourse now.
