I studied homeopathy for years and years. Herbs and all kinds of acupuncture, acupressure, alternative medicine. I think it's just better to treat the whole person.
When I first met David Lynch, he was living in the stables of the American Film Institute... He'd work all night and have his crew lock him in during the day, and he'd sleep.
I had no fear 'cause it seemed everyone in the audience always applauded whatever I did. Course, maybe it was because I always seemed to know everyone in the audience.
My parents were devoted. Civic minded. We had family counsels. Three of us children against two of them. We lived a 'Leave It to Beaver' time.
My biggest thrill in life is to read in the afternoon until I fall asleep and take a nap.
I connect with just plain old everyday people. Human behavior fascinates me, the people who are the nuts and bolts of this country who help hold up the world.
I hated country music growing up, but it gets in your bone marrow, kind of like a disease.
There's nothing like not washing your teeth or washing your face or brushing your teeth in the morning.
Living in New York always felt to me like living in the middle of a carnival. It never stopped. There was something very exciting about it.
There have been several television movies, 'Carrie 2,' two musicals! I remember thinking, the first time there was a musical on Broadway, 'Oh my gosh! The people who ordinarily go to the theaters, that's not really the audience.'
Celebrity status for me came slowly. I wasn't an overnight sensation. I had time to prepare emotionally.
For me, life is a bowl of cherries.
With my coloring, I'm nothing in black and white. I've seen my films sometimes on black-and-white TV. Disaster.
There are fewer roles, and I've done so many things already that I don't want to repeat, so to find something you haven't done is harder. I don't want to play a country singer again.
My father's family is German and Czech.
I'm drawn to ordinary people who find themselves in extraordinary circumstances, which is a big part of the human condition.
I didn't worry about leaving the fast lane - I was just so consumed with my baby that it seemed like the right thing to do. I never felt like I left New York, though. If you've lived in a place and loved it, you never feel like you left it.
Rarely in film acting do you get to do a scene for very long.
You want to live your life and live it just as fully and as deeply as you can. That's your deep well of reserve. That's where you get all your - the fodder for your work.
Most things in my life I had before leaving home. Values, support, great family. I was shaped at an early age. A musician playing guitar, I wanted to be a folk singer.
