How do you let go in the worst possible situation so you can have some kind of release and peace? Life is not going to stop coming at you. In the end, you just have to say, "I have no control." Your time is precious. Are you really going to waste it worrying about this stuff? Hide

It's always very technical. I'm counting the beats: Okay, we're supposed to kiss for two beats, then I say my line, then they want another kiss for four beats. I'm going, One Mississippi, two Mississippi, three and break. It's like choreography. Sometimes, you have actors who feel it's their job to get as far down into your throat as possible. You're like, Excuse me, I like you, but not that much. Hide

The girl-next-door thing went away with that film and I tend to do characters that I want to be more like. In the beginning, though, I was sort of the "action girl". And then with While You Were Sleeping (1995), I was the romantic-comedy girl. But when I took time off, I thought, "There's something I'm missing here." I literally had to start from scratch. Hide

I still have to get up and make lunch for a little person, and pray - please, dear God - that he eats something I put in his lunchbox today. Hide

I was mostly concerned about the Vomit Comet. I was literally acting off of nothing for up to 10 hours a day, with headphones my only connection to Alfonso [Cuarón, director]. We made a catalog of music clips - whale sounds, Radiohead, weird screeching of metal - and I memorized them. I would say, "Okay, give me No. 4. That's not working. Try No. 2. That's better, that's getting me to the emotion I need.". Hide

Whether you choose to accept it or not is up to you. It's what you choose to do with it, the people you choose to surround yourself with. Always choose people that are better than you. Always choose people that challenge you and are smarter than you. Always be the student. Once you find yourself to be the teacher, you've lost it. Hide

I don't post or do any of that stuff. People have these worlds they post and it's about projecting an image and getting likes. I read a great article about how there's a higher rate of depression because people are looking at everyone else's Facebook [pages] and seeing this picture-perfect life. We're not representing our lives truthfully. Like when you're yelling at your child, you're not taking a selfie of you being a horrible parent. No, you're waiting for the perfect selfie. 'Do I look thinner now?' 'Do I look great?' It's this false projection of one's life. Hollywood has now gone global. Everyone's Hollywood now. Hide
