Zitat des Tages von Morena Baccarin:
It's incredibly fun as an actor to get to play different styles and different genres for completely different audiences.
It was humbling to see how many fans there are of 'Serenity.' It's like an underground fan base.
I feel that my drive and ambition is more American, while the passionate, laid-back side of me is all Brazilian.
When I was 7, we moved to New York because my dad's job was transferred.
I was your typical pregnant lady - pickles and watermelon.
You see those magazines, 'Oh, look at so-and-so without makeup, Halle Berry without makeup.' It's so crazy to wake up in the morning and have that thought - 'Do I need to put makeup on? Do I need to do something because I know people are going to know who I am?'
I do think it is possible to be in love with two people at the same time.
Brazil has a lot of issues that are similar to a lot of countries in Latin America, but the dominant issue Brazil is dealing with is poverty and political corruption.
They have a joy for life in Brazil unlike any country I've ever seen.
I'm not saying that people should believe in a specific thing or a specific way, but if everyone has the knowledge they need to have, then they can make their own decisions. That's the key thing: to have the information.
Humans have a sense of spontaneity and emotion. We have a dichotomy between grief and happiness.
I can't complain. I'm making a living out of what I do, which is really rare for a lot of actors. The hard part is staying confident and staying with it.
I'm kind of a workaholic.
At a certain point, I think, you harden yourself to the realities of the business.
I'm not always up to date on everything that's going on, but I am somewhat informed. I listen to NPR. And I actually watch Fox News, because I believe, if you just listen to the things that agree with you, you're not really seeing anything else.
My first role was in a Nativity play. My mom was playing Mary, and I was crying backstage, so she brought me out as Baby Jesus.
There's really no way to plan how to play an alien.
I think I'm more the method acting school.
You don't know what love is until you meet your child.
My mom never cared if I came home dirty from playing outside with my brother. If I got my dress muddy, or my jeans were ripped, or I got blood on something. But I think a lot of girls have a different experience.
The quality and sparkle of Hearts On Fire diamonds is truly unmatched, and I am really excited to represent the brand.
My mom is an actress, but she never really pushed me into it, and it was never something I thought I would be doing. She was very happy I decided to, but she certainly doesn't offer me criticism because she knows I'd tell her to shut up! Nobody wants to hear that from their mum!
The dream as an actor is being able to bounce back and forth between different things.
I have this internal cultural struggle where there's a side of me that is very Brazilian that misses the food and culture, and a side of me that's very American that really loves the structure and predictability here.
I like the idea of raising a kid in my trailer. My mother was an actress. I grew up in theater with her in Brazil. I would play with set dolls. And I loved it.
My dad was a news editor for a Brazilian news station, and they had offices in New York and London.
I'm an avid cook. Brazilian, some Italian, a little French. And I often throw dinner parties.
'Gotham' was something that just popped up for me.
I got a little bit used to people stopping me in the street with 'V,' at least in America. Not that I think you ever really get used to it. It will always be a shock to be recognised for anything.
When I'm not working, I'm definitely a no-makeup girl. The most I ever do is a little tinted moisturizer and a little mascara and blush.
I'd like to think that every job and every step I've taken progressed more and more toward the career that I've wanted to have.
I swim laps, which is nice because I'm weightless in the water.
I understand people are curious, but it doesn't matter. My personal life is my personal life.
I'm one of those people who has a toothbrush and toothpaste with me at all times. After lunch, I'll brush my teeth in a restaurant bathroom!
I certainly am not doing nudity because I think lightly of it - I don't think it's something that one should just jump into without thinking about it.
I had a very liberal family.
