Personal Quotes
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.

[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.

It's luck, pure and simple. I mean, I work very, very hard, but I don't take any of this for granted and I don't think any of it is because I'm better or more talented than other actors," she says. "There are people who work at least as hard as me and are twice as talented, and nobody's asking them about makeup secrets. There is a lot of luck to how my life's turned out.

I'm really glad that the Oscar stuff is over, to be perfectly honest. I mean, I am infinitely grateful - I'm so lucky - but it's been a really crazy year. You're constantly wearing clothes someone else picked out for you, delivering sound bites instead of real feelings, and walking into rooms full of people you don't know. I didn't become an actor for any of that, so it's been kind of a confusing time for me.

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.
