Zitat des Tages von Laura Dern:
Being an actress my whole life, it feels so good to have a clean face when I'm off, so I'm not a big makeup wearer.
It's interesting to play a real-life person who has already been a character on 'Saturday Night Live.'
I don't turn my nose up at anything. If it's a great part, it's a great part. I'd love to do a box-office hit.
When man decides he can control nature, he's in deep trouble.
If you have a movie coming out, and people are talking about you, the amount of scripts will build.
When you become a parent, you really care that you get that right, and you care about nothing else.
It's a strange world, as David Lynch would say.
It excites me to go to a movie and be reminded that I'm human, and I'm filled with opposites, and I'm built with flaws. Part of growth and healing is recognizing that.
Whatever character you play, it gives you the chance to expose another side of yourself that maybe you've never felt comfortable with, or never knew about.
I hope we can be consummate artists as women or revolutionaries, or whatever women want to be, and also have love, not only for ourselves but from a partner.
I've always loved film more than theater.
Love means a lot to me, and I love loving, and I love boys.
You don't always get to work as much as you like, because I'm waiting to find things that I care about. Sometimes that's frustrating.
It's always been a desire of mine to work with my parents.
I like movies about longing and desperation, and dark and light things, stories about people struggling to raise children, and to have relationships and be intimate with each other.
You must always watch when David Lynch makes anything.
Me and Woody Harrelson, we're twins. We're the same person. I should only make movies with him.
I tend to always love material with flawed protagonists and morally ambiguous people.
I remember there being a period of time when I had a baby, and I was so sleep-deprived that I'd get into having no filter, and that was not good.
I'm interested in human nature. That's why I chose to become an actor.
There's always a side of a woman that likes a man from the other side of the tracks.
You know someone is your favorite person when you've done a day of press, listened to yourself ad nauseam, listened to them tell every story, and when it ends, it's like, 'Are we going to eat something?'
We like our archetypes and heroes to be what they are at face value. And life doesn't work out like that.
I love when actors can let go of where and how they have to do it, and just that we do it. That we are flawed and human, and don't worry about how we look or who we are, or that it seems too old of a character if we're still young.
I'm interested in flawed protagonists. I was raised on them.
Irvin Kershner, no matter what anyone says, has done some great work. 'Eyes of Laura Mars' is an incredible movie.
Luckily, I was raised by people who'd already seen all the yuck stuff, which is why they originally didn't want me to act. I understood the difference between getting a part at a Hollywood party and getting a job.
I've got the sort of personality that requires me to find some sort of release, and for me, it's performing.
I love being in my 40s.
I try to do things I love or care about for some reason.
You'll be offered the 'lead' in this new hot film with such-and-such A-list director, 'a fabulous part' - a fabulous part? A fabulous part is a character with a soul, who starts here and goes to there, you know? There aren't many of those.
I really don't consider myself to be a conventional Hollywood star. I've never really been marketed by the big studios to do mass market box office films.
Wild at Heart made a few people angry-they thought I was exploiting women by showing that when a woman says no she really means yes.
There are a lot more female writers wanting to direct their own material and hopefully will be given the opportunity.
What do you say when someone has truly inspired you? How do you express to an artist how deeply their work has affected you?
I wanted to go to Jupiter. That was my plan from day one, and David Lynch gave me the ticket.
