Personal Quotes (5)

[on the subject of interracial adoption] I didn't want the character in the movie ( Lovely & Amazing (2001) ) to be the cute kid that makes everyone feel they had done a good deed.
But the fact that I can make movies, I don't have much to complain about. I'm sure it's more difficult for women to make movies, especially because in general the kind of movies women want to make aren't necessarily going to be blockbusters. But you know, there are so few women in so many positions of power. I don't know if it's changed since we made our first movies.
I haven't been attacked for showing the girlie or frivolous sides that women have, that I can care about the size of my ass and something else really important, it doesn't mean I'm shallow. And I think that true feminism does embrace all sides of women.
It's harder to take care of kids than it is to make a movie.
To say you want to be a director is to risk sounding obnoxious, pretentious, arrogant, and I think women are more fearful of sounding that way than men are.
