#Quote
1I wanted to be an actress before I understood anything else about my life -- before I went to school, before I understood what it is that my dad does. It was innate. Everything, everything that ever happened in my life happened in the framework of my knowing that this was where I was going to end up. So in school, I could learn purely for the sake of learning. It gave me this almost gluttonous sense of intellectual curiosity. I never want to stop learning.
