Is there something you know now that you wish you’d known at 20? Something that you could go back and tell yourself?      Yeah. ‘Youth is wasted on the young’: There could not be a truer statement. I’d probably tell my younger self to chill out, to take a deep breath. I was a pretty hard worker when I was a [student]. I’d just basic­ally say ‘Enjoy everything a bit more because, like your dad said, you’ll wake up one day and you’ll be 34.’ I’d just say ‘Everything will work out, so enjoy the day.’

Man of the moment on mancandykings: » Robert Downey Jr.

“I think that we all do heroic things, but hero is not a noun, it’s a verb.”

[On why she has seemingly always veered away from typically glamorous roles] “I never really thought of myself in those terms. When you’re young, you just take your beauty for granted. Sometimes I think, ‘****, I should have done that film!’ But it’s a passing thought. I played the parts I wanted to play. I do have regrets about films I shouldn’t have done, which took me away from my children. That’s the only real regret—time wasted.”
