I'm in fact Australian but my mother's English so I've got no problem playing a domineering English woman.
Jacki Weaver
It's funny in the U.K., where I'm not really known because I never did a soap. My English cousins in the Lake District think I'm not a real actor because they've never seen me in 'Home and Away' or 'Neighbours.'
Jacki Weaver
Well, I've been acting for 50 years now, professionally. I've been acting a lot longer. My mother reckons I was acting when I got out of the womb. But because I've been working in the theater, I've probably only done about 25 movies but I've done more than 100 plays.
Jacki Weaver
It's a basic tenet you learn at drama school. If you're playing someone evil, you can't make an objective moral judgment. You've got to get inside the character and empathize as much as possible.
Jacki Weaver
I do have friends in Australia who now refer to me as 'Hollywood Jack.'
Jacki Weaver
I was an adventurer, and I got married a few times. I kept trying to find a relationship as good as my parents'.
Jacki Weaver
I live for my work, apart from my family who come first. And I live to tell stories and pretend to be other people, it's something I've been doing since I was 3 years old. Maybe it's because I'm intrinsically bored with myself, and I find other people more interesting. The more different they are, the bigger the challenge.

The Oscar buzz when I was nominated was totally overwhelming. I think I can cope with anything now that I've coped with that. It was huge. It makes you realize, coming from a small country like Australia, what an enormous industry it is in America.
Jacki Weaver
I usually do get to play the very sweet, charming roles... but I'm not an obvious kind of villain.
Jacki Weaver
I've had five weddings but if I'm really honest and if I count significant de factos... I've had nine husbands... which sounds appalling but when you consider I started at 18 and I'm 65 it's not so bad.
Jacki Weaver
It's a very generous culture, American culture. I know you can't generalize 300 million people, but everyone I've met here has been so lovely to me.
Jacki Weaver
The eyes are the windows of your soul, and when you're acting, they're one of your most important instruments. Especially for close-ups!
Jacki Weaver
We're becoming so much better at destigmatizing all sorts of things, including mental illness in 'Silver Linings.'
Jacki Weaver
I love getting presents. And awards. I'd do whatever they told me to do.
Jacki Weaver
I was sent the script for 'Silver Linings' when I was doing a play in D.C. at The Kennedy Center with Cate Blanchett and I was sent the script and asked if I was interested, and I said 'Oh, boy am I!'
Jacki Weaver
I remember I was a little girl when Elizabeth Taylor stole Eddie Fisher from America's Sweetheart, Debbie Reynolds, and the reaction back then was enormous! And Angelina Jolie was in trouble, too, for taking a husband away from another America's Sweetheart. Don't take husbands from America's Sweethearts.
Jacki Weaver
I've had my share of villains and played some fairly nasty characters. But I've been acting for so long. I started out as the girl next door. Now I'm the grandmother next door.
Jacki Weaver
In Australia, I grew up watching 'The Mickey Mouse Club,' my son grew up watching 'Sesame Street,' my grandson's growing up watching 'Dora The Explorer.' So we are sort of saturated with American culture from the day we're born, and to those of those who do have an ear for it, it's second nature.
Jacki Weaver
'Promiscuous' implies that I'm not choosy. In fact I'm very choosy. I just happen to have had a lot of choices.
Jacki Weaver
I know that Philadelphians hate New York actors passing off New York accents as Philadelphian when they are quite different.
Jacki Weaver
Every director's so different. Everybody has their own modus operandi and I love getting to know different directors in the way they work. David O. Russell is very exciting to be with because he's got a mind like quicksilver.
