"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."
"I wouldn't say that I never think about beauty as an aesthetic issue. But I certainly think it's a much more complicated issue then it's imagined to be. I think sometimes when people think of beauty they think of prettiness as a sign of beauty, but it's a lot more complicated and a lot deeper than that."
