Personal Quotes
People have always told me I was beautiful, but beauty isn't the same as attractiveness and I don't think I have ever been attractive . . . My sister Serena is beautiful and attractive, but not me.

I've always really wanted to be onstage but movies kind of carry you along. You get swept away by them. And there's this feeling sometimes of being a bit of a pawn and of other people channeling their ambition through you. They make films, they make films, they make films. But theater - good theater - is rarer. If you see a really amazing production - there aren't many, but if you see one - it stays with you forever and ever. Films are just consumables. The experience of living theater is more powerful.

[on ageism in Hollywood]: I am just so angry about it and bored with it too. I am so pleased to be working here in France where women of my age are still regarded as having something to say and filmmakers find us emotionally intriguing. Just because you have a few wrinkles does not mean you do not have anything meaningful to contribute. As you get older, it all becomes richer and the implications of everything you do become so much more complicated - and therefore more interesting. Your life as a woman does not end because you are 35 or 45. (2010)

I'm not complaining. I love the teamwork of making films, and you get to go to the most beautiful places. It's a very privileged life in that respect. And you live about eight different lives when you're making a film - 12 hours a day for 6, 8, 10 weeks just pretending to be someone else. I find that very stimulating. And then every now and then I go to a film that just blows you away, and that encourages me to want to make another.

I'm 47 - unlike most actresses, I don't lie about my age - but I'm liking this bit. I love it. I wouldn't swap it for a million years.
