"It's unfortunate that we live in such a panicked, dysmorphic society where women don't even give themselves a chance to see what they'll look like as older persons. I want to have some idea of what I'll look like before I start cleaning the slates."
"People love scandal; people love drama. They love stripping away the layers to see what's really in there, and they'll do anything - as well as make it up - to get it."
"The older you get, the more fragile you understand life to be. I think that's good motivation for getting out of bed joyfully each day."
"I just have a great life. I know great people. I've had great relationships - all different kinds of relationships."
"It's not just great teachers that sometimes shape your life. Sometimes, it's the absence of great teachers that shapes your life and being ignored can be just as good for a person as being lauded."
"I'm too tall to be a girl. I'm between a chick and a broad."
"If you love someone, you say it, right then, out loud. Otherwise, the moment just passes you by."
"I don't get angry very often. I lose my temper rarely. And when I do, there's always a legitimate cause. Normally, I have a great lightness of being. I take things in a very happy, amused way."
"I choose totally by instinct. And the only time I've ever gone against my instincts, I've regretted it."
"I'm just an ordinary person who has an extraordinary job."
