A big part of who I am is just the way I was raised. Nobody is better than anyone else and if you really work hard you might get lucky and get what you want.
I don't mean to be arrogant and I really appreciate my fans but talking about what I am doing is not something I'm good at. I do what I do and that's it. I want to get back to my work and do more of it instead of talking about it.
Realize what you really want. It stops you from chasing butterflies and puts you to work digging gold.
Don't ever ever believe anyone who tells you that you can just get by by doing the easiest thing possible. Because there's always somebody behind you who really wants to do what you're doing. And they're going to work harder than you if you're not working hard.
I have to work really hard eight shows a week to get a nice check as an actor. But when I write a play and it's a - knock wood - hit the checks come in for many years.
Look I eat really well and I work out but I also indulge when I want to. I don't starve myself in an extremist way. You're not taking away my coffee or my dairy or my glass of wine because I'd be devastated.
One must work and dare if one really wants to live.
I like Cinderella I really do. She has a good work ethic. I appreciate a good hard-working gal. And she likes shoes. The fairy tale is all about the shoe at the end and I'm a big shoe girl.
I suppose I have a really loose interpretation of 'work ' because I think that just being alive is so much work at something you don't always want to do. The machinery is always going. Even when you sleep.
I work really hard at trying to see the big picture and not getting stuck in ego. I believe we're all put on this planet for a purpose and we all have a different purpose... When you connect with that love and that compassion that's when everything unfolds.
People intoxicate themselves with work so they won't see how they really are.
I wasn't really a work conscious type of person.
I think I am really irreverent and I pretty much just talk to and about men the way men talk to and about women.
Men are going to go out on the road and they're going to find other women. So if you really want to save yourself a whole lot of heartache do not fall in love with somebody in a band. Just don't.
Then I read Little Women and of course like a lot of really young girls I was very taken with Jo - Jo being the writer and the misfit.
Men need to understand and women too what feminism is really about.
I don't really care what people tell children - when you believe in Santa Claus the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy one more fib won't hurt. But I am infuriated by the growing notion posited in some touchy-feely quarters that all women are or can be beautiful.
If you ask men why they did a good job they'll say 'I'm awesome. Obviously. Why are you even asking?' If you ask women why they did a good job what they'll say is someone helped them they got lucky they worked really hard.
A man who pretends to understand women is bad manners. For him to really to understand them is bad morals.
I've been out with some extremely beautiful women who have had no sex appeal whatsoever. It really is a lot more than skin deep.
And what I saw happening is that women don't make one decision to leave the workforce. They makes lots of little decisions really far in advance that kind of inevitably lead them there.
In their 30s women really start to live... they're not children anymore and they're not just mothers.
When I meet large women who walk with confidence and are articulate and really have an understanding of how they walk in this world I love them so deeply for being able to overcome such unbelievable odds.
I noticed in the past a lot of guys who like strong women they really freak out if you're not strong 24/7. Or they complain about you being strong then the moment you're not strong they're like 'Oh no no no.'
