Personal Quote:

I get so protective of David [Lynch], like an older sister or something, which is so absurd. He's not waiting for us to get the movie because he doesn't think the cinema is about 'getting it'. I think he believes - which I've found very rare in filmmakers - in the intelligence of the audience, that they're intelligent enough to discover the film and what it means within themselves.

David Lynch unsuccessfully pursued for her to receive an Oscar nomination for Inland Empire (2006), by managing an Oscar campaign, in which he solely stood on Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles, accompanied by a cow and FYC banner featuring a shot of Dern from the movie. However, Dern, who didn't campaign herself, didn't receive a nomination. See more »
