As a measure of acting skills, film can be very deceptive.
Domesticity has to mean nesting. Otherwise, six months go by, and you don’t know where your underwear is.
Hollywood is run by men who are big on vulnerability.
I do need to be told when I’m going wrong. No one’s acting can be an exact, 100 percent science.
I hate it when people say, Mary Elizabeth, this may be hell, but the movie is going to be sooo good.
I used to go home at night and just shake, because I had no idea that’s what acting was gonna be.
I’m not looking at money, percentage points or grosses. This is my life, you know? To me, every day matters.
I’ve never found that it jars to go back and forth.
I’ve worked with leading men so worried about losing their charm that they were always winking to the audience.

Suddenly, I realised: this was what I wanted to do. I didn’t know how to do it; I just knew acting felt right.
