Personal quotes

 

"Therapy? I don't need that. The roles that I choose are my therapy."

"Because I am a bad girl, people always automatically think that I am a bad girl. Or that I carry a dark secret with me or that I'm obsessed with death. The truth is that I am probably the least morbid person one can meet. If I think more about death than some other people, it is probably because I love life more than they do."

"You're young, you're drunk, you're in bed, you have knives; shit happens."

"And my dad, you're a great actor but you're a better father."

(On if she ever caught her husband Billy Bob Thornton cheating) "I've told Billy if I ever caught him cheating, I wouldn't kill him because I love his children and they need a dad. But I would beat him up. I know where all of his sports injuries are. And I'd beat her, too!"

"I'll make it real simple, I'm a 36-C. In the game, she's a double-D. In the movie, she's a D. We split the difference...[the movie Croft] is much more athletic, and she has smaller breasts, but she's still Lara Croft, so there."

"I seem to be getting a lot of things pushed my way that are strong women. It's like people see Hackers and they send me offers to play tough women with guns, the kind who wear no bra and a little tank top. I'd like to play strong women who are also very feminine."

"I'd like to believe that the people that have supported me in my work or identified with me in films, the people that feel they know me, they do and they don't have misconceptions - they understand. I believe that."
