This is not about abortion or the antics. This is about pro choice versus anti-choice and government intervention in a woman's personal decisions about her life.
I figured as I got older, the good roles for women would be in the theatre. So 15 years ago I started building a Broadway career to try and develop the chops to be accepted as a great theatrical actress.
It begins and ends with money. It's absurd in this day and age when we need so much money for education, health, for people, that a $100 million dollars can be spent on a film. It's obscene.
I would certainly choose my jobs depending on the actions of the character. I won't do anything that has to do with child abuse or women's abuse.
I have health. I have a wonderful support system. I have the admiration of millions of strangers, which I do not underestimate.
I do not admire young actresses whose foreheads cannot move.
What we need is more women writers, writing for older women. There are some actresses who have production companies and create their own material, and I truly admire that.
I have a brother who's a psychologist. He says three-quarters of the world are born feeling that they will be affected by the world; one quarter are born knowing that they will affect the world.
What makes me angry? The education of children. How in God's name can you expect to have a functioning society the way we teach our kids?
I had a great deal of pressure to move to LA after Romancing the Stone came out and I'd become very popular. But people came to me anyway.
A woman my age is not supposed to be attractive or sexually appealing. I just get kinda tired of that.
