Talking to your hairdresser is almost like talking to your therapist.
Everybody needs to laugh and have fun and feel good.
I had a whole bunch of very successful movies. I have worked with some incredible people - incredible.
It's helped my outlook, how I interact with people. It's made me more conscious. It's helped me be able to focus, make better decisions, think on my feet. I don't know what I'd do without it. It's my sanctuary.
I always think I look better after a yoga class. It's the same as a massage. We look so amazing after a massage because we're relaxed.
I love learning, and I think that curiosity is a wonderful gift.
I'm sorry, but in my generation and where I came from, only sailors got tattoos. Not ladies.
I love the idea of living a life that is completely humble and quiet.
