I guess the first big name I worked with was Sissy Spacek and that was really interesting just because she's so incredible and I learned so much from just watching her. But she's also so unassuming that I loved working with her. It wasn't like working with a star, it was Sissy. Not a big deal.”

“It’s interesting for me to always make myself look very different. Actually, it’s great because it means nobody ever recognizes me. Also, it means that I’m not going to get typecast with the same look. I actually feel it’s quite a blessing. So, I love it when they slap on the old slab. When I watch myself in movies I go, 'My God, it doesn’t even look like me.' But that’s a good thing.”

“it’s very rare to find a character that is both dynamic and a woman - and not clichéd or obvious way.
