"In the paintings where it's there—the tenderness—I work for it. I'm not afraid of it. If I could put my bleeding heart in there, I would."
"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."
