Personal Quotes (1)

It's become more and more important to me, and more and more important to all of us to impress upon women how powerful it can be when they all support each other, and when we all collectively move away from the hyper over sexualization and the victimhood and all of the big huge issues that we are all tackling in this industry, from pay inequity to sexual harassment - the more of us that are talking about it, and the more of us that are sharing our experiences from the beginning, the better it's going to be in the long run, and the better it's going to change. I try and spread that. I prosthelytize a little bit about this stuff whenever I can with young actresses.
