On her tendency to migrate to roles about emotionally tortured women: "I’m very interested in confrontation and emotional drama, family drama. I realize as I look back at my career that I’m more interested in feelings than I am in ‘doing.’ Sometimes there are movies that are very much about what it takes for someone to accomplish a goal—this person’s going to climb this mountain, how did they get there, look they got there, the end. I’m more compelled by stories that tell why they got there; why they can’t do it; why they decided to; or what’s going on in their families that’s caused this issue. Behavior is something that really interests me, so most of my stories are about people’s behaviors."
