Personal Quotes
[on which movies inspired her] Daniel Day-Lewis' performance in In the Name of the Father (1993) made me realize what movies could do. But the super-cheesy answer to that which is probably more accurate is Life with Mikey (1993) , which is about a child talent agency. I desperately wanted to be this chubby little girl who sang at the end of that movie.

[on not being part of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 (2012)] I'm not in it, I don't know anything about it, so I'm excited just to see it, you know, as a normal moviegoer. (August 2012)

I guess I'm drawn to... I think, even when I read serious scripts, the moments that I connect to are the little glimpses of humor, because, you know, I think every script, no matter how serious it is, has bits of humor in it. Even End of Watch is really funny. So those are the moments where I can kind of see what I can do with it that's different, and I feel like that's the easiest way for me to get inside a character's head, is through the humor, like what sense of humor they have.

I've been pretty lucky in terms of the films I've been in, and having a slow and steady build. I have done smaller films that a lot of people in the industry have seen, and I feel sort of fortunate that it hasn't been this overnight thing. I'm hoping that it continues to be this slow and steady thing so that I can take a deep breath and get used to it.

I'll tell you, the really humbling moment is the moment that you get home from the Golden Globes or the BAFTAs or the Oscars, and you sit on your bed, which is the same crappy IKEA bed you've had since you were 18, and you put on an old episode of "Family Guy,'' and you have a frozen meal . . . and you're trying not to get macaroni and cheese on your thousand-dollar gown.
