On her first Golden Globe nomination: I slept through (the nominations announcement). But, I got up to six messages and went, 'Ah! I wonder if there is some good news for us?' And there was. My agent called me three times and said, 'Why aren't you up?' So, yeah. I called my mom, and she said, 'The golden what?'
[In an Interview with the UK Mirror on why she didn't tell her parents she is a lesbian until she was 31 years old] I didn't want to be gay. I wanted to be...I wanted an easy life. And you know what? I am gay and I still have an easy life.
[on being a stepmother to her partner's daughter, Haden Ryan-Embry] I'm almost 50, and I thought that possibility was behind me, so this is a real delight. I never went through a biological clock experience. I never even heard it ticking.
[on her clothing] I don't wear particular designers. I wear whoever fits me well. I try to dress the bottom I have. The body I have and the bottom I have. I have the intention of looking fabulous every time, and I care about it a great deal. I'm very vain.
[on realizing, at 12, she was gay] I knew instinctively it was a disease and a curse. No one could ever, ever know.
To this day, well, like, I'll see a very fey guy on TV and I'll be thinking, 'Couldn't you butch it up a little?' I want us to make ourselves palatable to the world.
