I never act my characters - I am them.

I don't even have voice mail or answering machines anymore. I hate the phone and I don't want to call anybody back. If I go to hell it will be a small closet with a telephone in it and I will be doomed and destined for eternity to return phone calls.

I don't mind a little Sturm und Drang. When I was doing 'Riding in Cars With Boys ' I wouldn't smile at anybody because my character Bev was angry at the world. I'm the opposite. Inside my head I'd be like God I'll explain to you at the end of shooting that I'm not this person.
