I'm considered to be, I hope, an actress, and you can get away with a couple of extra pounds if you are trading on your talent instead of your sex appeal. I don't have time to be tortured about my weight."

Best quote about her: (Meryl Streep) "It's important to me to work with good people that are not worried about how they look. You know. Real actors. They're your blood. Like in Prada, Anne Hathaway's vulnerability was so palpable that you just couldn't help but eviscerate her. It's like an animal that offers the neck. She offered her neck, constantly. So I felt like the alpha dog."
