On her career struggles:
“My early thirties were rough. I went through stuff that I would have gone through, and probably should have gone through much younger, but I had spent my twenties working. Even when I was the right age for older roles, people thought of me as being younger. It was tough because I’d had so much success in my early twenties.”
On her unique fashion sense:
“Most of my wardrobe is vintage and I’ve wore dresses to the Oscars that I got for $10. At Sean Penn’s last Haiti gala I wore this vintage dress that I’d worn to a film premiere in 2005. I know that’s kind of a no-no in the fashion world, but why wear something just once if you love it?”
On plastic surgery:
“I’m hesitant to say this because I don’t want to knock anybody who’s done it, but the whole thing with plastic surgery… When you’re around people who celebrate age and respect every line for telling a story, it’s beautiful. I wish there was more of a celebration of getting older. When I do magazine shoots, people always say, ‘Oh, she doesn’t age,’ but I have the best make-up people and photographers. I don’t look like that every day.”
On her boyfriend, Scott Mackinlay Hahn:
“Yeah, he’s very special. What he does, which is incredible, is all about sustainability and helping companies go green. His work is pretty humbling.”
