There are certain things in ancient practices that are not worth adhering to.
An actress once advised me, 'Make sure you do your own laundry - it will keep you honest.'
Ageing is something that both men and women are utterly terrified about.
A lot of people are frightened by old age - by being around people who are, basically, on their way out - but I'm fascinated by it. It's an amazing thing to be around someone who has had a life well lived.
I haven't got many anecdotes. Maybe I should do something scandalous.
I always dressed as a man when I was at school. I loved wearing a tie and a shirt, and I was always wearing suits. Annie Lennox was my hero. I was always playing men in high school.
I love 'Annie Hall,' but then I adore 'Hannah and Her Sisters.' Dianne Wiest is amazing in 'Bullets Over Broadway,' but her in 'Hannah and Her Sisters,' I absolutely loved it.
We've enshrined the purity, sanctity, value, and importance of bringing children into the world, yet we don't discuss death. There used to be an enshrined period where mourning was a necessary part of going through the process of grieving; death wasn't considered morbid or antisocial. But that's totally gone.
I applaud Women in Film - not only for celebrating the successes of women, but for providing a safety network to mentor women and to discuss the particular issues that arise in a very male-dominated industry.
Armani makes a fantastic lip gloss called 'Beige 100.'
If you only exercise your soloist muscles, the other muscles quickly atrophy.
People love events - they love performances, they love music - and I think Australians are great entertainers.
You're always more critical of your own country. People will talk about stuff in Britain, and I'll go: 'Aw, it's not that bad,' but at home, it's different. It's inside you.
You know you've made it when you've been moulded in miniature plastic. But you know what children do with Barbie dolls - it's a bit scary, actually.
The word 'circumnavigate' is quite a beautiful word.
As an actor, I endeavor to find the reason in the unreasonable. Because no one thinks they are being unreasonable or unrealistic or demanding or behaving madly. We all see ourselves as being justified.
Violence and racism are bad. Whenever they occur they are to be condemned and we should not turn a blind eye to them.
I think we should stop drinking bottled water. There's no need to be drinking it if you're living in western communities.
What I think of as a mistake might be something that does really well at the box office, so I'm my own harshest critic - as we all are, really.
Actresses can get outrageously precious about the way they look. That's not what life's about. If you starve yourself to the point where your brain cells shrivel, you will never do good work. And if you're overly conscious of your arms flapping in the wind, how can you look the other actor in the eye to respond to them?
