There’s nothing more exciting for an actor than a chance to lose, to be someone who has lost – especially if it’s someone who starts off with a veneer of control. To be broken is wonderful.

Comments on: "Lena Headey Quotes: For me, horror movies are a real escape."
‘Lost Boys’ is one of my all-time faves. I just thought it would be great to be a vampire. I remember this movie called ‘Once Bitten,’ which is about an ’80s sort of power girl who became a vampire and was really, like, sexy. Hair like she was from ‘Dallas,’ shoulder pads, big earrings.
If you play certain parts, you have this nice face painted on you, and then you have feel as if you have a responsibility to this idea of being beautiful. I hate that about our business. It shouldn’t inform what you do. But there’s a perceived inverse relation between looks and talent.
Getting the role in ‘300’ saved me. I’d been out of work for 11 months after ‘The Brothers Grimm.’ Once the film came out and didn’t do so well, the director Terry Gilliam blamed me for absolutely everything. It was pretty appalling, and I had started to wonder if I’d ever get another job again when I was asked to audition for ‘300.’
