It comes in so many radical colors. And children need loving homes and people want to adopt who are gay! Why would we ever try to stand in their way? It's unfathomable. Hide

I want people to have movies full of romance and hope and empowerment, something they can escape into and feel good about. I love happy endings. Hide

I love a woman's body. I think a woman and a woman together are beautiful, just as a man and a woman together are beautiful. Being with a woman is like exploring your own body, but through someone else. Hide

He was in Empire of the Sun (1987). If he walked into the room now, I would totally clam up. Or I might go overboard and embarrass myself. Hide

[on the best advice Steven Spielberg ever gave her, and how she doesn't feel she is a good actor] St Show more [on the best advice Steven Spielberg ever gave her, and how she doesn't feel she is a good actor] Steven told me, "Don't act your characters. Be your characters." I feel like it's fake and yucky and it just doesn't ring true. But like Robert said, if you research and you study and make it personal, you just become that person, and it's your truth and everything else around you falls away. Then you're telling the truth, it's not lying, it's not fake. So he gave me that wisdom because at 6, I guess I was comfortable and more humorous than I would have remembered now. But once I got older and kept continuing acting, I don't know if I would have succeeded without that advice, because it's the thing that saved me. I'm not an actor, I'm a pretender. Hide

I was, like, obsessed with Camelot (1967) and Excalibur (1981) and Anne of the Thousand Days (1969) - any double-VHS-giant double-Beta set of those films. I just loved the swashbuckling nature of them, I was obsessed. I loved watching men in cinema, and I liked watching young girls, whether it was a Jodie Foster in Foxes (1980) or a Hayley Mills in Pollyanna (1960). It could be squeaky clean and it could be super like L.A. streets-gritty, but there was no barrier between. I liked older men and younger girls. That was what I responded to in film. Hide

I was raised by gay men and women...it's who I am, you cannot define a family. There are children out there who need these loving homes. These are rights that are fundamental and must be had. And I will fight for however long it takes; I don't want to live in a world where prop 8 exists! Hide

But today, it's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966). My jaw was on the floor when I was watching it because it was the definition of visceral. I thought it was the most compelling, upsetting, beautiful-to-look-at, in-your-face film, with no tricks whatsoever, except for beautiful camera work. Hide

They become like a mirror and they reflect that happiness. If somebody walks in the room and they're drop-dead gorgeous and sexy, it's really fun to look at. But if someone is giving of their spirit and they make you laugh and feel good, that's a whole other level of beauty. Hide

People can take from it what they want. We're just girls being silly and having fun, girls are affectionate with each other. We don't have that hang up of what it's gonna look like or what people are gonna think. I think it's hysterical. Hide
