What I love about the theatre is that it's always metaphorical. It's like going back to being a kid again, and we're all pretending in a room. Sometimes, when the pretending really works, I find it much, much more moving than something on film.
It's been so wonderful to hear the realities behind motherhood.
The uproar of the late '60s - the antiwar movement, black riots, angry women. It was a wonderful time.
If I weren't involved with food, I'd be working in architecture. Design is that critical to me.
I try to present something that is full of time. Not timeless, but full of time. I never like a work where we try to update it, but it's still not interesting to see a work that is dated. If one is successful, then a work can be full of time. And time is very complex.
I've a very sweet tooth. Wish I didn't.
When you make a movie, you know you're making a long-form thing, so the visuals are different than for a video where it has to be more obvious or in your face, I think, a little bit.
I'm a Broadway baby, through and through. It's my first love, and it's what brought me to New York in the first place.
A barn with cattle and horses is the place to begin Christmas; after all, that's where the original event happened, and that same smell was the first air that the Christ Child breathed.
I really don't like going out. I don't like restaurants because I don't like the idea of someone, a waitress, being responsible for my evening. I like seconds, and more, and lots of conversation, and I've always hated the idea that in a restaurant an evening just ends. I find that incredibly depressing.
I was having my teens in my 30s.
In order to satirize adequately, I think you need to bring people down to Earth and be like, 'Yeah, these people drink coffee and have tummy troubles and they go to the bathroom like anybody else, and they all have relationship problems, if they even have relationships.'
I intimidate a lot of men, because I've done a lot. I'm established. I'm successful.
An alcoholic is someone you don't like who drinks as much as you do.
I just hope, every now and then, the studios still slip one of my movies in.
John Lee Hancock
Peace in the world is everybody's business, no matter where you live or what you do.
Hey, man, I toss a stick for a living. Gotta spice up that deal, y'know. Gotta stand out.
And you yourself always be seated at the middle fo the high table that your presence as lord or lady may appear openly to all, and that you may plainly see on either side all the service and all the faults.
A lot of times characters are combinations of people I come across in life. I people-watch a lot.
Taraji P. Henson

It wasn't until I did 'Hugo' where I sort of started to think that this could be something that I do for a long time - not necessarily the rest of my life, but we'll see.
When men take pleasure in feeling their minds elevated with strong drink, and so indulge their appetite as to disorder their understandings, neglect their duty as members of a family or civil society, and cast off all regard to religion, their case is much to be pitied.
The busier we are the more leisure we have.
Why should a great and powerful nation like the United States allow its relationship with more than a billion Muslims around the world to be defined by the narrow hatred and nihilistic actions of an exceptionally small minority of Muslims?
John O. Brennan
There is a yearning for people to return to elementary moral virtues, such as integrity and commitment. We distrust people who have no centering of values. We greatly respect businessmen, for example, if they display those virtues, even if we don't necessarily agree with the people.
The key to winning is poise under stress.
I come from divorce. I'm only doing marriage once. It's not a game for me.
A final of a grand slam is always a matter of details. Maybe a point here, a point there will make the difference. Maybe someone who is a bit more gutsy than the other player, someone who is having a better day than the others.
Growing up, I listened and was influenced by a lot of those around me. I have a big family, and my dad listened to '80s music, my mom listened to Motown, my brother listened to reggae, and my granddad was the one that got me into jazz and swing music.
I would love to go to England.
