In private, I'm a hippie who follows Buddhism, does yoga, meditates and loves to dance wildly.
I feel fortunate that I'm able to play diverse roles. I don't think everybody in Hollywood gets the opportunity to do that.
Life is wonderful beautiful journey. Every episode of my life is like a dream, and I am at peace and happy with what life has given me.
When 'Mulholland Dr.' was voted the Best Film of the Decade, that was very meaningful for me. That film opened up incredible doors for me, and I believe that that was the reason I was given opportunities to play all kinds of characters.
Some may think fashion is frivolous, but the way I see it, when you dress well, you add beauty to the world. And there's nothing wrong with that, right?
Unless you have a real passion for making movies, then don't bother. I had to carry energy and light into every meeting, only to be told, 'We don't want you.' I couldn't take it personally. You just have to wait, and live for those moments when the casting director likes you.
For me, it's hard to keep up with trends. I just go for the roles and movies that I feel I could add value to, or contribute to, that I feel I could portray.
