Quotes

#Quote
1 I just do shit so I don't have to stop and think about shit.
2 I don't like interviews. I hate them. I always feel so stupid. I just go blank, even with the simplest questions. I guess it's to do with the fact that I'm a perfectionist. I don't want to say anything that I'll regret in ten years time. And I'm also painfully shy in real life. When I'm in front of the camera, or talking to people as an actress, and not as myself, it's like I become another person. Somehow possessed with somebody who is worth talking to. Because at home people could care less about what I have to say.
3 I would love to do a film like Howard's End, which is one of my favorites. I would love to do a film like Sense & Sensibility, but until society changes, the only roles I'd get to play in movies like that would be either as a maid, or a prisoner, which totally sucks.
