Quotes

“I’ve never wanted to be an actress. I came into the industry to be a filmmaker, but let us say fate had other plans for me. I don’t want to be the next glamour queen. My cinema is of a different kind.”

“Journalism is not what it used to be. I thought it was an important job but it is not. I’m idealistic and it pretty much upsets me that negativity sells and that even if I wanted to tell the truth I wouldn’t be able to if my boss does not okay it.”
