I was not that girl. I was a kooky theater kid, silly and goofy and academic.
My body is my instrument. It doesn’t have to look a certain way, but I need it for 18-hour days of service. It can’t block me in what I do.
I had times in my life when I was more public. It didn’t work for me. You learn from that and do it differently.
I’m the luckiest broad in Hollywood now.
