On her privacy: “I am pretty fierce about my privacy. I have made career choices to protect it. I stopped going after big movies because what comes with it is, they want you to be as famous as possible. I don’t have the constitution to battle that.”
On writing female characters that the next generation can aspire to: “When I was writing ten years ago, I took what is typically considered a male character and would give it to the woman. I’d get feedback saying, ‘She’s not likeable’. I would think, ‘So f****** what. Every guy isn’t likeable, until he is.’ Women are taught to be nice. Men are taught to be powerful. I want to find a way to tell stories from a woman’s perspective that doesn’t feel like it’s been put in the mouth of a woman by a guy.”
