Inside the mag she talks about her role in Hollywood:
“There was a time when I would brush things off and I was so self-deprecating, like, “Oh, it’s such a tiny role no one will pay attention. But now, I’m just grateful to have them and I hope I get more because I’m a character actress. You know… I don’t bleach my teeth, I chain-smoke, I’m flat-chested, I don’t mind being nude, I’m not precious, I’m pale as a ghost, I have crow’s feet, and I believe I can play anybody. So to get to start to do that has been incredible.”
This is why I love her. You don’t see her out on the town, drunk ass, hooking up with everybody. She does her thing and moves on alluding a sense of cool minus the bitchiness.
