Being an indie queen, people think I have all these choices. Like I’ve just been sitting around waiting for the best indie film that I deem acceptable.
But it’s fun to be something, have that, and you don’t have to be real. It’s like, comedians. They go on and they’re doing all these jokes. I would be like that if I were more awake.
I can do comedy, so people want me to do that, but the other side of comedy is depression. Deep, deep depression is the flip side of comedy. Casting agents don’t realize it but in order to be funny you have to have that other side.
I don’t Twitter, although sometimes I think that I should.
I like soap opera acting. If it’s done really well, there’s nothing better. It’s old school. It’s like what those melodramas in the ’30s and ’40s were like.
I love bayou life.
I usually play character parts in Hollywood films.
I wouldn’t say I was a queen. Maybe a little elf.
I’m the character actor in Hollywood movies, the girl who has to be annoying so the guy can go to the other girl.
I’m trying to work in studio movies, but they won’t hire me.
My dad recently reminded me that my grandfather’s cousin was Lefty Frizzell.
My first lead role was probably ‘Party Girl’ in 1994.
My grandmother is this amazingly theatrical woman. She acted like a movie star, as far as looks and attitude, kind of like Susan Hayward.
There are all these scripts where the women, if they’re working, are prostitutes and lawyers with an angry streak who’ll kill you. It’s a reaction to women leaving their men and men being angry about it and saying it on some subconscious level.
