I had lots of jobs. For instance I sold lingerie. Doing that I realized how faking an eastern European or French accent can boost sales. Men who buy presents for women really responded to that.
I could never reclaim these first precious moments of maternity. But I needed to pay my mortgage. It wasnt an option. I had to do the role.
I'm not in this for the achievement. I'm in it for the illumination. That's how I choose my roles, that's how I attract roles, it's a very spiritual process for me. And it's the only way I can continue, and stay interested. The acting...it's really a vocation.

As an actor, you're sort of the court-appointed lawyer of the character. And that's what used to draw me to scripts...something in a woman that I wanted to defend, something that I recognized or wanted to understand, something that turned my head. Now that I'm a mother, I think it's more the message of a film, or the questions that they pose about life...that's the magnifying glass through which I look at them now. But at first it was all about the character.

I've always been lucky in that none of the TV shows were popular. I've never gone beyond 13 episodes. I did TV because independent films pay very little and I needed to live. But I've never wanted to be locked into a series, even when the part was interesting. I became an actor to play all sorts of different roles in films. I left my agents because they were focusing on television.
I really don't feel a need to be famous, but I do feel a need to make a difference, to shed light on human emotion through acting. It sounds strange, but I don't recognize myself in the women in most films. And I should be up there somewhere. We all should.
It's terrifying to be the lead. There's a moment of excitement, and then pure terror.
