"At this time in my life, I’m ready to accept or own a kind of romance and melancholy or melodrama that I wasn’t ready to reveal before. It was always there in my inner life as an artist, but I was too afraid to share it."
"My work is not about fantasizing about characters or situations. Some people have thought that I’ve always fantasized about the characters I do, about being a femme fatale or whoever in my film stills. But when I’m doing the characters, I really don’t feel like it’s something that grows out of my fantasy, my own dreams."
