I was a very good girl for a long time, that`s what really drew me to acting. The stage was the perfect place to be outrageous, to be sad, to be angry, to be all these different things.

 

I`m hard to pin down. I tend to look different in films. I get recognized sometimes. But I just live my life. I get on the bus, I get on the subway, it`s not a problem. I think of myself more as a character actor than that ingénue leading lady, who started out something like Michelle Pfeiffer or Jessica Lange. I`m a bit quirkier than that.
