I feel like a hostage to fortune. Not that I am complaining. I wanted to play the role. But in truth I didn't think the show would be such a success. OK I thought it would fail. Not because it was bad. I was confident it was good but plenty of good things just sort of wither on the vine.

I define success as being comfortable with yourself and your life. And that is about as good as it gets really.
On set is where I feel comfortable. The red carpet stuff talking about the film explaining your own life it doesn't come naturally. It's all necessary stuff I suppose but it's not my strength.
I've come to the conclusion that beautiful women in the West aren't comfortable finding strength in their femininity. They want to do masculine-oriented things to establish their femininity. It's a contradiction.
The American people are sheep. They're comfortable rich working. It's like the Romans they're happy with bread and their spectator sports. The Super Bowl means more to them than any right.

You have to let it all hang out let go of the ideas that were more comfortable and embrace some of the sadness in your life.

I don't wilt easily and a director can't either. He's the captain of the ship and he's got to be in total control. He also has to have respect for the people he's working for. From being an actor and being on a set my whole life I'm very comfortable there. And I'm not afraid.
