Personal Quote:

As an actor, you constantly play these other characters. You're always pretending to be somebody else, but at the same time you have to keep a handle on who you are. I think that's where a lot of actresses get lost sometimes, because that's tough. I can only imagine it has to be the same as a pop star because you're not even playing a character. You're a persona.
