Actors like [Clint Eastwood] have a kind of dynamic lethargy: they appear to do nothing, and they do everything. They reduce everything to an absolute minimum. For instance, he had perhaps a four-line speech, and he reduced it to four words.
People had a habit of looking at me as if I were some kind of mirror instead of a person. They didn't see me, they saw their own lewd thoughts, then they white-masked themselves by calling me the lewd one.
Some people have been unkind. If I say I want to grow as an actress, they look at my figure. If I say I want to develop, to learn my craft, they laugh. Somehow they don't expect me to be serious about my work.
