  • I chose to stop acting because I wanted to direct and I had to show people that I was serious. I’d like to get back in front of the camera eventually, but only if I can play something a little bit different.
  • The outing [when she announced that she was gay] really was quite a freeing experience. I know that sounds sort of clichéd, but it really was very liberating. That one thing, that one big secret is out. For a lot of people, it was just a confirmation of what they thought about me. I mean, I look like the girl next door, but I was always kind of off-center.
