"I happen to be interested in watching a face age. I like faces of women aging so it makes me personally quite sad. That's a beautiful gift from God. If people don't want to see that anymore then I won't be in anymore movies."

"There's a small club of women who are willing to age."
"I hope to find the roles that are age appropriate but not yearning to be younger, or parenting ad nauseam."
