It's rare that there's a role that requires an Australian accent.
I never took an acting class, so I've made all my mistakes on film.
I'm kind of addicted to moving.
You know, I'm not in a hurry, and everybody else in Hollywood - particularly agents and managers - they're all in a hurry.
I apologize for my terrible interview skills.
It's odd, that's why I don't like telling people I played field hockey. It's real big in Australia for guys. But I say I played in America, and everybody goes, 'Oh, you girl!'
I generally don't think most situations can be labeled as black or white.
I thought, I need to be more cautious about my choices - it reflects on who I am.
In a way, I was spoon-fed, if you will, a career. It was fully manufactured by a studio that believed that they could put me on their posters and turn me into their bottle of Coca-Cola, their product.
Anyone that has a job that takes them away from home, I think, can understand the difficulties in maintaining consistency, not only with your family and those you love but with your friends.
When I first started acting, I was just crap.
I'm not good at future planning. I don't plan at all. I don't know what I'm doing tomorrow. I don't have a day planner and I don't have a diary. I completely live in the now, not in the past, not in the future.
I have a lot of great distractions outside of acting.
It can be a little distressing to have to overintellectualize yourself.
I don't know, as long as I get to evolve and grow as an actor and as a person, that's the stuff I'm after.
I never want to feel like I've achieved my goal. It's like Chinese farmers. They never admit that it's a good season. They feel like they'll be punished.
It's kind of a rule of thumb for me to self-doubt going into any kind of project. I always think that I shouldn't be doing it and I don't know how to do it and I'm going to fail and that I fooled them. I always try to find a way out.
I only do this because I'm having fun. The day I stop having fun, I'll just walk away.
The reason that you dance and sing is to make the audience feel like they're dancing and singing. As long as you're having fun with it and giving it 100 percent, they're gonna feel that.
I've never figured out who 'Heath Ledger' is on film: 'This is what you expect when you hire me, and it will be recognizable.'
