On women today: “Women aren’t wimpy. They don’t complain all the time. They can open up jars! They can f***ng save the day! They can support their whole family. They can support their men. Half of my friends make more money than their male partners.”

On her secret soft side: “It’s so funny: The characters I played in Columbiana and Avatar, on the surface, there’s what appears to be strength, but it’s sugarcoating an immense vulnerability. I am tough, but I’m also a very vulnerable person. I trust everyone. For many years, I thought, I need to stop being this way, but no, I just need to learn from it.”

On male-dominated sets: “You have to learn from your experiences. I’ve been in compromising circumstances, and I wish I’d had the strength that I have now because I would have protected myself better. I would have stood up for myself better. Women are challenged every day and are sometimes encouraged to objectify themselves. And it hurts.”
