#Quote
1That was fantastic and [How to Get Away With Murder] is a different kind of show. It's a whodunit, it's a ploty, and twisty, kind of show and [Code Black] is different because it's a formulaic show, It's a joy. You don't want to play the same thing your whole life so that's the joy of acting.
2[on Code Black (2015)] "It is a beautiful, beautiful show,"
3[on working on Code Black (2015)] "There are four residents [working] over our shoulders who we are teaching, and it's about the life in this emergency room, based on a real emergency room."
4[the focus being on more human elements in Code Black (2015)] "That is what I was brought up to believe. I get the cutting-edge dramas. I love it. But to spend these kind of hours and devote this kind of energy, I do want to be behind those other values."
5[on the real Code Black (2015) hospital] I've never seen anything like that Emergency room!
6[on gaining knowledge for Code Black (2015)] "It's real, it's raw and the amount of knowledge that they want us to acquire so that it feels second nature so that it feels authentic, is a lot,"
7[on working on Code Black (2015)] "It is a glorious organized chaos for the doctors and it is super exciting,"
8[but what exactly does "code black" mean?] "That's the moment in the emergency room when there are more patients than there are doctors and beds to take care of them,"
9[on Code Black (2015)] "You get involved in the lives of not just the patients coming in, but also in the lives of the doctors."
10[on Code Black (2015)] "It's down and dirty," [she declared with a triumphant smile]
11[the focus being on more human elements in Code Black (2015)] "At the end of the day, Michael's given us a show that's not snarky. It's real... hard core, ugly sometimes-but with values I can get behind: family, love, health, teamwork, and making each day a little better,"
12[when she faced off against Viola Davis on the hit ABC series, How to Get Away with Murder (2014)] "I took [Viola] down and now I'm here!" [at Code Black (2015)]
13[...said that the bar for authenticity was set high when dozens of actors went through a medical boot camp.] "Ryan said they wanted to make sure you can do four actual procedures," Those included chest tube insertion, central line insertion, intubation, and basic sutures. "Eyes closed."
14[2003 interview] The Oscar is disastrous on a professional level. Suddenly the parts you're offered become smaller and the money less. There's no logic to it.
15[2012, on Pollock (2000)] That was exciting. That was exciting intellectually, educationally, emotionally, the craft of it. It was probably the most exciting thing I've ever done. It was full of museum visits and art study and painting classes. And emotional drainage. Working so closely with Ed Harris, who I just think is a genius. Long hours. Hard days. A full character. It was everything I dreamed of. And it was a tough shoot. You know, Ed wasn't always easy [as a director], but he was always right. And he had the Pollock cap on as well. So sometimes you'd have Pollock directing you in a movie, which was cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs. And sometimes you would just have Ed Harris and all of his great brilliance and manliness coming from behind the camera. But I would follow Ed up any mountain trail at any time of day or night, knowing he'll take care of me. He's a man.
16[2012, on Spy Hard (1996)] Ugh. I hated doing that movie. It was, I thought, going to be an opportunity to have a lot of fun, but it was just chaos and, uh, not so much fun. And not so funny. I mean, Leslie [Nielsen] was great, but it was really his show, and it was just... very chaotic. Behind schedule, over budget.
17[2012, on filming Flubber (1997)] A hundred years ago, I had the good blessing to meet Robin Williams, and all memories of that movie are about flying up and down on wires with Robin while getting into a flying car. And all he did was make the crew laugh. It was the loudest set I've ever been on. He was the kindest person. His then-wife, Marcia, also just incredibly kind. It was fantastic. It was a bit of a... It was an understood star vehicle. I think it was the first star vehicle I'd been in, and Robin was doing his best to just let everybody be funny and share the humor, but I think they really just let him go. We got to be the straight-people. But I fell in love with him. He's fantastic, and he's still a friend.
18Television is a wide world of opportunity for women in their 30s, 40s, 50s, thank God. In any film, there are 10 male roles for 1 female role, especially in the action films. They're heavy with the guys.
19Well, we're actors. So I would absolutely agree that we all have a kind of a personality disorder.
20[on her new role on The Newsroom (2012)] When I first got the role, Jeff Daniels said: 'I'll give you a little Aaron Sorkin tip: Come to set with your lines down for the rehearsal.' I said, 'What?' Usually the actor learns them during the day. But as an actress, I have never had a sigh of consternation when I get something complicated. You know how it is when you feel used in a good way. It's like that old song, 'keep on using me, 'til you use me up.' I just feel grateful.
21People have such false perceptions of how stardom really works. After I won the Oscar for Pollock (2000), some newspaper printed, 'She should get a million-dollar bump.' My sisters would write me, 'You're gonna get this million-dollar bump!' I thought, I'll open the shutters to my hotel, and Scorsese will be on the lawn, and the lawn will be made out of emeralds. I never made less money than right after the Oscar.
22I was the girl who got off the bus wondering where Marty Scorsese was and why he wouldn't cast me in his next film.
23"My husband is great, and my mother flies in and helps when I'm on location." (when asked how she juggles career and family.)
24The only thing that seemed to me I could do in such a way that no one else could was acting. I thought, I can be a doctor, but there's going to be someone else who is just as good or better. I can be a lawyer, which I still sometimes think I would love to be, but I think there's someone who can do it just as good or better. So, being an actor, there will be people who can do it just as good or better, but I'll have my voice, and no one will have my voice.
25Until people get to know me they think I'm a dark, sensuous bitch.
