It’s hard to be clear about who you are when you are carrying around a bunch of baggage from the past. I’ve learned to let go and move more quickly into the next place.

Sometimes I think my husband is so amazing that I don't know why he's with me. I don't know whether I'm good enough. But if I make him happy then I'm everything I want to be.

I am odd-looking. I sometimes think I look like a funny Muppet.

When I get logical and I don't trust my instincts - that's when I get in trouble.

I'd go from film to film and almost detach from one world and jump in another. I was living as these people and not having a self. I didn't know who I was. And things just get really dark.

I don't see myself as beautiful because I can see a lot of flaws. People have really odd opinions. They tell me I'm skinny as if that's supposed to make me happy.

I didn't really want to live so anything that was an investment in time made me angry... but also I just felt sad. When the hopelessness is hurting you it's the fixtures and fittings that finish you off.

I am deeply grateful to the citizens of Sarajevo and the Sarajevo Canton assembly for bestowing upon me this incredible honor of citizenship. I am so proud to now be a part of such an extraordinary part of the world and fellow citizen to the people I deeply love and admire.

Where ever I am I always find myself looking out the window wishing I was somewhere else.

Once you have six children you're committed.

I never like being touched ever. People used to say I held my breath when they were hugging me. I still do.

I don't think the money people in Hollywood have ever thought I was normal but I am dedicated to my work and that's what counts.

There's something about death that is comforting. The thought that you could die tomorrow frees you to appreciate your life now.

Honestly, I like everything, boyish girls, girlish boys, the heavy and the skinny.

I love to put on lotion. Sometimes I'll watch TV and go into a lotion trance for an hour. I try to find brands that don't taste bad, in case anyone wants to taste me.

All women do have a different sense of sexuality or sense of fun or sense of like what's sexy or cool or tough.

To be intimate with a married man when my own father cheated on my mother is not something I could forgive. I could not look at myself in the morning if I did that. I wouldn't be attracted to a man who would cheat on his wife.

If I make a fool of myself who cares? I'm not frightened by anyone's perception of me.

I think all women go through periods where we hate this about ourselves, we don't like that. It's great to get to a place where you dismiss anything you're worried about. I find flaws attractive. I find scars attractive.

I like everything. Boyish girls, girlish boys, the heavy and the skinny. Which is a problem when I'm walking down the street.

If I think more about death than some other people it is probably because I love life more than they do.

I seem to be getting a lot of things pushed my way that are strong women. It's like people see Hackers and they send me offers to play tough women with guns the kind who wear no bra and a little tank top. I'd like to play strong women who are also very feminine.

The truth is I love being alive. And I love feeling free. So if I can't have those things then I feel like a caged animal and I'd rather not be in a cage. I'd rather be dead. And it's real simple. And I think it's not that uncommon.

I'd like to believe that the people that have supported me in my work or identified with me in films the people that feel they know me they do and they don't have misconceptions - they understand. I believe that.

I always play women I would date.

If you ask people what they've always wanted to do most people haven't done it. That breaks my heart.

I grew up as this very carefree happy kid then things turned darker for me. Maybe it was because I saw that the world wasn't as happy a place as I had hoped it would be for me.

Therapy? I don't need that. The roles that I choose are my therapy.

There's people constantly asking you for something on set so the multi-tasking of motherhood transfers very well to being a director. And I think you're compassionate.

Without pain there would be no suffering without suffering we would never learn from our mistakes. To make it right pain and suffering is the key to all windows without it there is no way of life.

Oh God, I struggle with low self-esteem all the time! I think everyone does. I have so much wrong with me, it's unbelievable!

I need more sex OK? Before I die I wanna taste everyone in the world.

When other little girls wanted to be ballet dancers I kind of wanted to be a vampire.

I do have tatoos and I do wear leather but there are other sides of me that my film express.

I don't believe in guilt I believe in living on impulse as long as you never intentionally hurt another person and don't judge people in your life. I think you should live completely free.

If you have enough people sitting around telling you you're wonderful then you start believing you're fabulous then someone tells you you stink and you believe that too!

First and foremost comes my family and my life with Brad. We have so much joy in raising our children and teaching them about the world that nothing really compares to that.

I've told Billy if I ever caught him cheating I wouldn't kill him because I love his children and they need a dad. But I would beat him up. I know where all of his sports injuries are.

I like to hide behind the characters I play. Despite the public perception I am a very private person who has a hard time with the fame thing.

I'm happy being myself which I've never been before. I always hid in other people or tried to find myself through the characters or live out their lives but I didn't have those things in mine.

Everyone got kind of crazy with me mentioning I was in love with a woman.

I'm getting a wrinkle above my eyebrow because I just can't stop lifting it and I love that you know.

I've been reckless but I'm not a rebel without a cause.

They're right to think that about me because I'm the person most likely to sleep with my female fans I genuinely love other women. And I think they know that.

I'm odd looking. Sometimes I think I look like a funny muppet.

The fact is I am not having sex. But I feel absolutely ripe for the what would you say? Plucking?

If I didn't have my films as an outlet for all the different sides of me I would probably be locked up.

What nourishes me also destroys me.

And my dad you're a great actor but you're a better father.

I never felt settled or calm. You can't really commit to life when you feel that.

I like someone who is a little crazy but coming from a good place. I think scars are sexy because it means you made a mistake that led to a mess.

I'm just glad I was able to return to some of that innocence and beauty I had as a child when I started my own family and my children brought me back some of that spirit.

I've realized that being happy is a choice. You never want to rub anybody the wrong way, or not be fun to be around, but you have to be happy. When I get logical and I don't trust my instincts - That is when I get in trouble.
