Personal Quotes
[on the death of her mother in 2009] She's gone. So that's hard. It's just one of those things. She was only 68. It was not fair. It has been really, really, tremendously difficult. It was completely sudden and unexpected and she was a month away from retirement. It was an infection and then an embolism. My mother got sick and she died the next morning. And I was on a plane on my way there when she passed away. It was really awful. We all miss her. It's been very bad. It's the thing about loss, and you see it in this movie [A Single Man (2009)], too, that unfortunately this is what happens. None of us is spared.

That's the beauty of what actors do, that you only have yourself as a resource. And so the trick is to find something in them that you connect to somewhere. And with every single one of my characters, I have to find something that I really understand and ultimately believe.

[about the birth of her son, Caleb Freundlich, and being a mother] It is the most wonderful experience of your life. It deepens absolutely everything. You have a greater understanding of things, so in a way it is a gift. For me it has made everything much better. I'm so happy; I am extremely fortunate.

The script [for Boogie Nights (1997)] is primarily about love and loss and human connection, and although Tom reveals himself very slowly, what he reveals is very genuine.

[October 2000, about her views on abortion and reproductive rights] Now that the FDA has legalized RU-486, it makes us feel that politically the winds are blowing our way. But, if someone has a problem with reproductive freedom, I won't even consider voting for them. George W. Bush is anti-choice, and I really believe that should he be elected, we will end up in a really difficult situation.
