On acting and writing:
My career has only become what it has out of sheer need, not because I wanted it that way. I knew I wanted to perform I was going to have to write it myself. The dream is what I imagine Amy Adams life is. Someone calls and says, Hi, David O. Russell wants you to do this part. Ultimately Im very happy with the way it worked out, but I dont think its my first choice for every role do to have to write it. I guess I could play the lame, nagging friend of the beautiful white protagonist, but Im neither going to have as much fun nor make as much doing that.

On her bucket list:
Learn how to become a Nora Ephron-level hostess. Own terrific jewelry and dinnerware that I actually use every day. Teach a class which entails mostly rambling on about my gossipy experiences in Hollywood. Somehow die at my most beautiful.
