“I’m an actor not a movie star. I prefer it that way. I think when you watch big stars on screen, it’s really difficult to look beyond that very familiar persona. As an actor, you can play different characters and not be recognized. I know I’ve got parts that other bigger, more famous actors wanted. I think in some cases their fame is a hindrance because they’re too identifiable.”

Happy Birthday, Toni Collette!

From birth, each of us sets out to discover who we really are.
But when trauma occurs, we create ways to survive. Often, we split into pieces and abandoned the most vulnerable parts of ourselves,
boxing them up in tidy packages and tossing them away. Later, we spend our lives looking for these parcels, hoping to find someone who can help us find these lost splintered pieces of ourselves.
