"Talking about myself to someone I don't know, and knowing that most of the time they will interpret in a bad way what I'm saying, has turned me into a wild beast when it comes to press. I've noticed that it's creating something kind of out of focus about myself. But, in a way, I don't really care, even if sometimes I feel that the person being put out there is so far from who I am. As you said, being the same person everywhere, that's something that I would love to feel, to achieve. But the thing is, I have a responsibility in creating this person who is not someone that I like at all."
On her work with James Gray:
"You don't turn away a great director. And I always wanted to work with James [Gray] without thinking it was possible. And then I met him and we became friends, and, weirdly enough, when you become friends with someone you wanted to work with, it's not that the desire disappears, but the perspective is ... It's like, when he asked me if I wanted to be part of his next movie, I was very, very surprised."
"Working with Joaquin [Phoenix] was something very special. He is a special actor and a very special human being. His instinct is like the instinct of an animal. There's a pureness about him. We lost this animal instinct that we used to have. We use a very low percentage of our instinct."
