Why not share with the world the way it is and tell them my feelings about my cat and how I played with my kids and how addicted to Christmas time I am and the smell of pine needles and hearing my kids laugh.
I use filming as an excuse to take classes. I got my certification in sailing for 'Wedding Crashers ' and now I can handle a 26-foot boat. I played a seamstress once so I took sewing classes. I love dipping into these other lives.
The Wedding March always reminds me of the music played when soldiers go into battle.
I guess as long as people think of me for different ages I'll trust their opinion. I remember noticing one year that Michelle Monaghan played 34 and 19 so I've kind of clung to that as my justification that I can be Jake Gyllenhaal's wife and a freshman in college in the same year.
I can't wait to start something up myself that is actually about giving unsigned bands the exposure they deserve especially when they travel so far to play the smallest gig they've ever played in their lives.
I am going to spend my time today just thanking the people that played a role in my career because I truly do believe that I was blessed by a lot of people that paths crossed mine as I went down the road in my career.
I played teen roles until high definition came out and I could never understand it. I would go in for adult roles and be older than many of the people auditioning but they'd cast the girl without a line on her face.
Disco is the first technology music. And what I mean is that 'disco' music is named after discs because when technology grew to where they didn't need a band in the clubs the DJ played it on a disc.
The typewriting machine when played with expression is no more annoying than the piano when played by a sister or near relation.
I think it is most important for a teacher to play the pieces and studies that are being played by the student.
Both my grandmothers had upright pianos and I just knew how to play since I was a child. Nobody taught me. I sounded like a grown-up and then I learned how to read music. I played so well by ear I could fool the teacher to believe I could play the notes. She'd make the mistake of playing the song once and I could play it.
When my opera Plump Jack was performed in 1989 my first piano teacher sent me something that I'd composed when I was four. I remember I played it and it still sounded like me. I'm the same composer I was then.
Girlfriend and 100 Percent Fun were my two peeks around '92 and '96. The reality is that the times I had the most media success sold lots of records and played bigger shows I had the least control of my own life.
I came from Long Island so I had a lot of experience at the stick. I played in junior high school then I played in high school. The technical aspect of the game was my forte. I had all that experience then I had strength and I was in good condition.
It's funny because in drama school my greatest strength was my range. So my early career was like that: I played all kinds of different characters.
Base Ball to be played thoroughly requires the possession of muscular strength great agility quickness of eye readiness of hand and many other faculties of mind and body that mark the man of nerve.
There's so much with my character in 'Dredd' that I identify with. She's my favorite character I think I've ever played. She's the most dynamic and fascinating woman that I could even imagine playing so I love her. What I love about her is that her sensitivity is her greatest strength.
I'm thrilled I'm grateful I'm blessed. I played for the world's greatest professional sports team in history. Once a Dallas Cowboy always a Dallas Cowboy.
Sport must be amateur or it is not sport. Sports played professionally are entertainment.
I think that people who have played sports have an ability to relate to people because when you're playing you have to work on teams and with opposing players.
I played a lot of sports when I was a kid so I get in that ballgame mindset of being really really respectful but at same time saying to yourself 'Don't back down a single inch hang with these guys if you can.' If they throw it high and tight you have to stand in there you can't take yourself out of that moment.
I didn't grow up a theatre kid going to theatre camps. I played sports and that was my main direction. But luckily I never had to choose between sports and theatre.
I played sports in high school and in college.
I also developed an interest in sports and played in informal games at a nearby school yard where the neighborhood children met to play touch football baseball basketball and occasionally ice hockey.
