the performances that I love are ones like Gena Rowland’s in ‘A Woman Under the Influence,’ where women are allowed to be messy & imperfect.
i think it’s the imperfections in people that make them perfect. i don’t find perfect faces very interesting.
If a woman isn’t happy and un-opinionated & long-haired & pretty, then she’s weird & ugly. I just don’t get it. I hate it when they say I’m ungrateful & I fucking hate it when they say I don’t give a shit, because nobody cares more than I do. I’m telling you I don’t know anybody who does this that gives a shit more than I do
I’m not homely enough to play the nerdy girl & not nearly pretty enough to play the pretty girl.
If I’d trusted myself & listened to myself all the times that I ignored myself, I would have been fine.
