On the baby rumors:  “But it’s not what you read. There’s no desperation. If it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be. I’m at peace with whatever the plan is. But will you hate me if I say I don’t want to talk about my relationship?”
On a time when she stood up to a male director:  “I threw a chair at a director. It wasn’t my proudest moment. He was treating a script supervisor horribly… When the director walked in, I threw a chair at him. I missed, of course. I was like, 'You can’t speak to people like that.' I can’t tolerate it.”

Naomi Watts

On her breakthrough role in Mulholland Drive:  “It was a game-changer, but I knew I had to be careful. You can get a lot of attention and still be gone in a flash.”
On what made her want to become an actress:  “One of the things was seeing the movie Fame, as cheesy as that sounds. I was like, That looks fun! It wasn’t that I wanted to be famous. I just wanted to go to acting class.”

Michelle Pfeiffer

On being cast as Al Pacino’s trophy wife in Scarface:  “I was terrified the whole time. I was so out of my league with all of these seasoned actors. Here I was, this little waify thing in these little flimsy clothes, and who was I? I was the girl from Grease 2!”
On plastic surgery:  “I’m all for a little something here and there—fine. It doesn’t matter to me if people have plastic surgery or they don’t, or if they do Botox. But when people don’t look like themselves anymore, that’s when you kind of go, 'Oooh,' and it’s kind of sad. It’s uncomfortable for us, but if they’re happy with what they see in the mirror, does it matter?”

On being described as the “perfect obscure object of desire” by Woody Allen: “For me, it wasn’t trivializing, but it would be if I did that in film after film. It gave me the opportunity of exploring the woman I’m not.”
On being the older woman in her relationship with Dev Patel: “I don’t think the age factor is any kind of annoyance—I find him to be more of an old soul than I am. His wisdom comes from a place that’s very difficult to pinpoint: How did a 21-year-old think of that?”

Barbra Streisand

On how Warren Beatty got her to sing at a fundraiser for presidential candidate George McGovern:  “Warren and I met when I was 15 years old. I was babysitting for my acting teacher, and it was Warren’s first summer of stock. Can you imagine, he asked if I would cue him! That’s the closest I ever got to a casting couch, not that I could get a part! I saw him a month ago. We’re always, 'I can’t get over it. Here we are. We were both nobodies!'”
On her career:  “I don’t get a lot of offers to either direct or act. I’m still a kind of threatening object. I was offered They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?, but you had to dance through the whole movie—I got tired just reading the script. I was offered Klute, but I was seeing someone at the time and didn’t want to work. I was offered Julia, but I was editing A Star Is Born. As I say to Jane Fonda, ‘I’m responsible for your career.’ Because I turned down those movies and she got them and she was wonderful in them. Now people want me for a specific role.”

Evan Rachel Wood

On the roles she chooses: “I always want to do things that reflect where I am. I do the roles that give me butterflies.”
On her nude scenes: “I learned that I needed to control the situation in order not to be too self-conscious. I said to myself, I’m an awesome naked lady, and there’s an energy that I’m going give off right now that lets you know how you’re going to feel about this.”

Viola Davis

On how her career has panned out:  “I didn’t get my SAG card until I was 30. But that’s how it works. You keep putting your work out there, and at some point, if you’re fortunate, if you’re lucky, if you’re blessed, it morphs into something. One role has led to another until I’ve emerged as this. This!”
On whether the quality of parts offered to her changed after her Oscar nomination:  “If I’m honest, I would say no. The money changed. The visibility changed. The quality of the roles? No. I’ve been blessed to have been cast in some imaginative roles, but there’s generally a lack of opportunity for women of color in Hollywood.”

Elizabeth Olsen

On taking off a year of school to make her film debut: “They’re all indies, so the shoots were relatively short—it was great because every single film was a genre, and the directors were so completely different. It helped me figure out what worked for me and how I would adapt. It was difficult at times— like a great year of conservatory training. It was that intense.”
On what made her want to act: “Watching old Frank Sinatra musicals when I was, like, 6. I wanted to be one of the love interests when I got older.”
