I find that a lot of women respond to my work in that it doesn't make them feel bad about themselves.
I could read at a very early age and I loved stories, losing myself in stories, novels.
In LA, I mean, here's this place full of desperate and sad people who take their only pleasure from destroying others for the purposes of their own self-aggrandizement.
I don't know anyone who ever got deferred pay. I'm the first of my friends to ever actually get a deferred paycheck.
Ideally, I'm also sending a message that everything passes, even hope, and sometimes you have to be patient while you wait for it to come back around again.
We're not all nice, and there are a lot of levels of ambition and niceness.
I think I'm just more adaptable now, so danger, overall, seems less dangerous to me.
If we had been less reliant on technology and the security that we enjoy in being divorced from what we used to know, maybe things would have turned out differently.
I've heard people say that 'The Blair Witch Project' is a feminist movie because there's a woman in charge and I've heard it called a completely anti-feminist movie because this woman screws everything up. Who cares really? It's just a movie.
All this technology for connection and what we really only know more about is how anonymous we are in the grand scheme of things.
A lot of our entertainment throws into detail the stagnation and illness of how we live today-it's sad and it's sick… and it's profitable.
Acting is just something I always knew I wanted to do – acting and writing.
