I just want to be able to sit on grass as long as I want to, without anybody telling me to leave. Everything is so restricted, here, in that you actually have to stand behind a line, you can’t go up the Canyon and enjoy the view.
I never consciously said, ‘I want to be an actor.’ It sounds stupid, but it’s kind of like being a painter or something. You don’t say, ‘From today on I’m going to be a painter.’ It’s not something conscious – you’ve just been painting pictures all your life.
I think I’m a really good partner and very sensitive to the other person’s feelings. I want somebody else to be comfortable, to understand about my job, and if they want to come on a set and see me work, they always can.
I think when I’m in love, I really am very good with calling, little faxes, and visiting and I really put a lot of effort into it. I’m really not the one that’s not available because of work and I’m very sad when I actually leave.
