Personal Quotes (4)

I believe in reincarnation. I think that's why I'm always on some sort of spiritual quest.
I remember there was a script that I read that I loved, and my agent told me, "They went after Amy Adams, and she's not doing it." And I said, "I'll do it!" And he was like, "They love you, but they're going to Natalie Portman." "Oh, right." There's always another.
Black audiences are what I've considered my base, and I will always make movies for that base.
I don't want to act like in every moment of flirtation I've always been the victim. We know the dynamics of what is alluring to the opposite sex but also know there has to be boundaries.
