Somehow, I have no idea how the transition was made from wanting to be an archeologist or a marine biologist, to wanting to be an actress, but it just kind of happened.
I try in my life to follow my heart in terms of what moves me and what is important to me. I know what it feels like to do things that are soul-decaying, and a lot of the large aspects of life in Hollywood, in the stereotypical way, I find unbelievably soul-decaying, and I choose, albeit frustratingly to other people in my life, not to expose myself to too much of that.
I also respond very strongly to characters I have not done before...something I can really sink my teeth into, and what's scary, and what terrifies me, because that's where I need to go.
Let's practice what we preach, and with the acceptance that we expect from others, let's stop being so damn judgmental and crucifying everyone who doesn't fit in to our boxed-in perception of what is right.
I believe people are in our lives for a reason. We're here to learn from each other.
My whole belief system is that our paths are drawn for us. I believe in reincarnation. I believe we're here to learn and grow...We choose how we come into this life based on what it is we have to learn. Some people have harder lessons than others.
First of all, I swore I'd never move to Los Angeles, and once I did, I swore I'd never do television. It was only after being out of work for almost a year that I began going in [to auditions] on some stuff that I would pray that I wouldn't get because I didn't want to be involved in it.
I want to be Harry Potter. I want to go to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. I want to do it all because Harry lives in the coolest world. But my daughter, who so badly wants to fly, would have to live there with me.
Sugar. Sugar, it just makes my heart race. It makes my moods swing up and down. I don't like myself on sugar. I like being kind of even. So I quit coffee this year too.
When I look back, there are various things I did that make me cringe. But then I'm sure that in my sixties I'll look back at how I am now and also cringe. I just think that's inevitable. What was weird about my childhood was that nobody else in my family was remotely like me. They were incredibly laid-back, but I was just like this ball of fire. I asked my mother about it recently: where did it all come from? And she said, 'I have no idea. We just sat back with our mouths open and watched you go.'
I go through periods when I feel confident and then I'm apt to be impulsive. But then I go through other times where I lose that confidence and I just feel like a total hypocrite. For a lot of my life I've had this feeling of something being wrong. It's hard to describe, but it's like having a sense of dread from the moment I get up to the moment I go to bed. There's this constant feeling that an accident is about to happen, or that I've done something bad that someone is going to find out.
After I did nine years of a television series, I didn't want to do anything really that involved going to a set and being in front of a camera for quite a while. And when I did start to want to do things, I wanted to focus more on film.
I hope everyone that is reading this is having a really good day. And if you are not, just know that in every new minute that passes you have an opportunity to change that.
