I'm really interested in harvesting surplus energy, energy that surrounds but we never really use.
My mom is from New Orleans. And all of my maternal relatives were there during Katrina. We couldn't even find my uncle for four months. We literally didn't know where he was. I had been there just four days before the storm hit.
Most actors I'm in touch with are struggling financially.
But it's much more exciting to make Die Hard. One of the reasons that I think that movie is so successful is it deals with those very important blue-collar relationship themes. But it's more visually beautiful to show things blowing up. It just gives you more on the screen.
Ed Norton is probably one of the smartest people I've ever met.
I used to train with my husband, Anthony Maina, but he is now too busy as a helicopter pilot, so we only run together when I do light jogging. I don't want to kill him before his next flight!
When I invite a woman to dinner, I expect her to look at my face. That's the price she has to pay.
George S. Kaufman
The forties, seventies, and the nineties, when money was scarce, were great periods, when the art world retracted but it was also reborn.
Part of filmmaking is always a guessing game, and part of it is always a game of trust.
I'm not very good with cars. They rebel against me.
I love the passion you go through while you're creating.
I'm someone who's seen firsthand the effects of gun violence. I've had to carry a gun to do my job in the war. And I know as well as anyone that this violence has no place on our streets, in our schools, in our concerts, so we've got to do something about it.
I never really take shortcuts. I was always one of those people who, instead of cutting across someone's yard on the way home from school, I would go to the end of the block and turn.
Memory is quite central for me. Part of it is that I like the actual texture of writing through memory.
Wimbledon is the most prestigious tournament we have, and being able to win it with all the tradition, that's always been a dream of mine.
I recently finished a job, an HBO movie 'Getting On,' a very dark comedy. It comes from a British series of the same name. In this role I have no hair, no make up and no nails. I play a very small role; she is not over the top and sassy.

I've always had something in my heart where I root for guys who struggle with women.
I love that feeling you get once you leave a cinema having just watched a movie during the day. Your eyes slowly adjust to the natural light, and your mind, being a little slower, takes its time to separate the images of film from the reality you are suddenly facing.
We live in a moment of history where change is so speeded up that we begin to see the present only when it is already disappearing.

Art saved my life.
No problems are ever resolved by violence. It only aggravates the pain and the hurt on every side.
I like travelling on my own. It means I'm completely free to think about what's around me.
I learned from my community how to shoot a gun, how to shoot it well. I learned how to make a damn good biscuit recipe. The trick, by the way, is frozen butter, not warm butter. But I didn't learn how to get ahead.
J. D. Vance
Trouble is, some accents lend themselves to comedy.
A lot of our insights are based on the ways in which people spend time at museums. They're curious, open, interested, and engaging. They want to express themselves and see their own identity refracted through the museum's.
I left my job as an editorial assistant with Katie Couric at CBS to start our company. I think Katie has said being at CBS was the worst time in her career. They were cutting back their news and interactive budget. I just had this very distinct feeling that I wasn't in the spring of something: I was in the late fall.
The actual process of filmmaking, the many hours out of your life- it is very slow and boring. I'm not interested in that now unless an opportunity was provided for me.
Most creative work is a process of people passing ideas and inspirations from the past into the future and adding their own creativity along the way.
I don't understand people who want to leave a good job. To me, without being terribly judgmental, those are people who haven't gone through their stint of being out of work for long periods of time.
