A lot of the films now are more focused on the visuals than on the actors. I think all directors should go to drama school.
I don't want to be a Hollywood star. I just want to do my job and enjoy it. My aim is to find my true identity and to remain true to myself.
It's so boring to play the girlfriend. Most of the women in film are there to be beautiful to the man. It's quite hard to find a ballsy or complex character.
For me, acting is like a therapy. I can express myself fully when I am acting and have blood in my veins. Even when I'm not working, I'm always living in my own world, imagining characters.
Actually, when I'm not filming a movie, my beauty approach is really natural - I prefer a bare face that looks really healthy and dewy.
I am a dreamer. Seriously, I'm living on another planet.
Everyone wants to work in America. Maybe not blockbusters or Terminator, but to have the choice.
When people say 'You're so beautiful' it makes me want to kill myself! As an actress you want to be seen for what you do, for the characters you can play, otherwise I'd be a model.
In Los Angeles, I feel like the ugly duckling, like I'm from Venus or something.
