I really can't complain about actresses who get paid to be dumb. Most of us can't get paid to be smart.
Viola Davis, she does have a lot of TV acting jobs, and she's also a very, very accomplished stage actress.
I was already in a band, and the teachers called my mum in and said: 'Abbey's so clever, it's a total waste if she follows her dream'. But I never wanted to do a job I didn't love, and I'd always wanted to be a model or an actress or a singer.

I'm pretty unusual for an actress in Hollywood because I am totally unselfconscious about my body.
I'd have gone berserk if I hadn't met Sargam Singh, an actress who soon became my wife. Within a year of our marriage our daughter Ameli was born. Sargam gave up her career to look after me and our daughter.
I'd love to work with Michelle Williams. I think that she's incredible. She's such a great actress and I love her.
Usually when I write a movie, I'm lucky if I get one good actress.
There are so many actresses I want to write for. I see them, and I think, 'Why is she not playing that lead? What's happened to that actress?' I think all I can do is to write parts for women, to say, 'Keep going, keep acting, because there are parts for you. There will be those plays.'
It helps if you don't date other actors, but actresses are beautiful. How can you say no?
