I think it gets so much easier to let things roll off your back. It’s such a business of hurry up and wait, and if you let it get to you it will drive you absolutely insane. Like, ‘Why was I called in at four in the morning and I haven’t been used until one in the afternoon?’ And ‘Why are we shooting this a million times when we have five other scenes to shoot?’ But you get to the point where you just say ‘This is filmmaking. This is what you get paid for. Everybody is doing the best they can. It’s what you have to live with.
"Thank you. You guys are just standing up because you feel bad that I fell and that’s really embarrassing but thank you. This is nuts. Thank you to the Academy and thank you to the women this year. You were so magnificent and so inspiring and not just those of you in my category. And it’s been so amazing getting to know you and you’ve been so nice and you’ve made this experience unforgettable. And thank you to the best producing team: Bruce, Donna, Jon and to my team at CAA and IDPR. And Bradley, and our entire cast: Chris, Jacki, Bob and our crew. My family. Happy birthday, Emmanuelle. Thank you so much. Thanks."
I eat like a caveman. I’ll be the only actress that doesn’t have anorexia rumors.
I kept thinking, cakewalk, cakewalk, cakewalk. I thought, why is ‘cakewalk’ stuck in my head?’ And then, as I started to walk up the stairs and the fabric from my dress tucked under my feet, I realized my stylist had told me, ‘Kick, walk, kick, walk’. You are supposed to kick the dress out while you walk and I totally forgot because I was thinking about cake!
"2013 has been kind of a blur. There’s been a lot of good and some bad. It’s been a whirlwind and I think I will always remember being very tired but excited. In 2014 I’m looking forward to peace and rest. I’d like to slow down; I’d like a little less attention; I’d like to buy a house and have a home. So 2013 was a really exciting whirlwind and I’d like 2014 to be kind of an unwinding, peaceful time."
