«The Oscar changed everything. Better salary, working with better people, better projects, more exposure, less privacy.», «I was never an ingénue. I've always just been a character actor. When I was younger, it was a real problem, because I was never pretty enough. It was hard, not just for the lack of work, but because you have to face up to how people are looking at you.»
