i’m very often referred to as “sir” in elevators and such. i think it has to do with being this tall and not wearing much lipstick. i think people just can’t imagine i’d be a woman if i look like this.
“I often think about how, if we were all placed in an apocalyptic situation, you’d realize quickly how stupid, petty things just don’t matter anymore. Who you love is who you love, and it doesn’t matter. Survival is your primary focus.”
i’ve always had the perspective that roles come into my life when i need them most and sort of teach me lessons. the same can be true of films, films are released into society to aid in a lesson, inspire people, comfort people.
I try not to read reviews or anything about me. It’s totally natural to be interested, but it’s completely damaging. Over the almost 20 years I’ve been working, I’ve been up, I’ve been down, I’ve been in, I’ve been out. Just getting to do the work is the privilege. I always feel like I have no idea what I’m doing. The one thing you have control over is having a great experience by doing your work fully.
i keep myself content by doing lots of different stuff and make sure that my next role is completely different to the last. i just enjoy the versatility of it, the challenge of doing lots of different things. it keeps the job interesting.
