“I believe in finding a soulmate. I’ve always been in monogamous relationships. I would never want to be in an open one. It’d be too awful. Monogamy can be hard work for some people. I don’t think it applies to everybody, and I don’t think a lot of people can do it.”
“I never struggled with trying to figure out what it was I wanted to do or what made the sparks go for me. I always had that huge laaa aspect to me.”
“That’s probably the direction I’ll take; I can’t keep up this face forever, you know. There is some weird ageist quality in Hollywood; perhaps that’s why I lean more toward directing and development.”
