When I was growing up, my mother would take me to plays and museums, and we'd talk about life. Those times helped shape who I became.
The artists who stand out to me have a passion for what they do. There are a lot of people who can sing. It's just like when you go to church and people are singing because it sounds good, not because it feels good. There's a difference.
(When asked if she is religious) When I was 12, I decided that I wanted to see what else was out there. I believe that all of the religions have merit and that it's man that messes it up. I am more spiritual than religious. Sometimes I feel like a Buddhist and I need to chant; sometimes a Baptist and I need to holler and shout and sometimes I need to be a Catholic and need to purge my sins and confess. It just depends on where I am. But, I know I need to get there.
All I have to do is be me on stage. But acting, I have to be someone else, and walk how they would walk and blink how they would blink. I used to talk about it bad like, 'aw man, that person made $10 million a movie?' But now I understand why they do. I get it now.
Married life is really good, it's a beautiful thing, I enjoy spending my life with this man; I like him, I like his personality, I like the way he treats his friends. When I'm talking about love, I'm talking about him.
I wanted to remind people I'm just flesh and blood. I falter. I am poor. I am blind. I am pitiable. I am naked. But I'm here and that is the blessing. The gift of life.
I am a woman, I make mistakes. I make them often. God has given me a talent and that's it.
