No one sees these little hidden steps. They only see the accomplishment, but even so, those small steps were taken. There is no sudden triumph, no spiritual maturity. That is the work of the moment.

  • I think of myself as a journeyman actress. I will attempt almost anything that I think that I can bring off. It could be almost anything.
