1 Her voice


1 It just gets frustrating playing the girlfriend, It's just this awful feeling, sitting in your house, waiting for a script to come. I like to be more proactive.
2 My life isn't that dramatic. My dad really loves me, he just can't talk on the phone. He's too crippled and shy, and that's almost harder. He's there and he loves me, and I try and try and try, it's just impossible to have a relationship.
3 No one was jumping up and saying, 'Yeah, let me give you money.' I had never held a camera in my hand - a home video camera, nothing. I had not directed.
4 I want to feel passion, I want to feel pain. I want to weep at the sound of your name. Come make me laugh, come make me cry... just make me feel alive.
5 A genius is one who can do anything except make a living.
6 I don't think I was fully satisfied acting. You know, the girlfriend role or the best friend role, and that wasn't enough for me.
7 My relationship with my father is pretty non-existent.
8 A bonus: You don't have to diet to direct.
9 Definition of an independent film is torture with less money and time.
10 For women in their 30s, it's so hard to get good parts.
11 I am one of the few actresses who isn't recognized by the way she looks. I'm recognized by the way I talk.
12 I like decorative, functional things that I feel comfortable in.
13 I think, ultimately, looking back now, acting wasn't satisfying me 100%.
14 I was never one of those people who thought, 'What I really want to do is direct.' It never occurred to me.
15 It's not like you can wake up and realize, 'Oh, I want intimacy,' and then it happens that day.
16 The last person they expected to connect with a screenplay was the comedic, blonde actress with the funny voice.
17 There were days that I literally had no reason to get out of bed. It just was so destructive for me.
18 'Chasing Amy' was an amazing role, but then after that, I went and did 'Big Daddy' and you're the girlfriend or you're the best friend. I wasn't getting the Nicole Kidman roles.
19 [on her distinctive voice] It's not a normal voice. It doesn't fit into people's preconceptions about what a woman's voice should sound like. My mom doesn't think I have an unusual voice, though. I'm sure it's helped me get some roles. But Chasing Amy (1997), I almost didn't get. There was concern the voice would grate on some people -- which some critics said it did.
