To win an Oscar - it's the top award. For me, the best way to celebrate success is how it plays out in your next venture. I won an Oscar, and I was on the plane two days later shooting Watchmen. I've been acting for over 30 years. I became an actor because I wanted people to feel like the role that I'm playing is a real person. Somebody's daughter, someone's mother. There's so many different stories to create.
Cadillacs have always represented success. Just the way they drive, you know it's just a sway to the Cadillac.
I am a very present person, but I do believe, you know, that it's important to find the beauty in the bruises. So when things have happened, you've got to see that they've happened to make you richer, to make you wiser. I don't know any other way than to be authentic, and to be ambitious is a positive thing. I think for women, especially, we are led to believe that being ambitious means you're being a bitch. It does not mean that at all, and your light shine on, and don't feel like you have to give an explanation for why. Just shine.
I never became an actor because I wanted to win awards. So I look at it like, okay, got this now. What's next?
