Bad acting is the ultimate inconsideration.

Bad acting is the ultimate inconsideration.

I think it's a little irresponsible for women who choose surgery to then say they can portray the average woman on the street, because if the average woman can't afford those treatments, then she's going to say, 'I'm 53 and I don't look like that,' and start thinking she's ugly or inadequate. ---->>>

I just want to sleep, and eat, and learn about what's going on in the world. ---->>>

I push for what I think can be the best, and if I feel they're not going for the best, it kills me. ---->>>

I think when it comes to Botox and surgery, actresses should do it or not do it, but be honest about their choices. ---->>>

I was the all-American face. ---->>>

Ultimately, however, the script an actor enlivens is someone else's words. ---->>>

I never thought I would start working again, and I did, but it was really hard, and I don't know that I would advise anyone to step back the way I did. ---->>>

I've been acting all along. I understand that I haven't been in people's viewers, but acting has never not been a part of my life, just more time in between and less high-profile. ---->>>

You see people on TV flying in to places just to pick up a baby, or brush some flies away. That's great if they can bring that issue to public attention. But that's not what I wanted to do. I was interested in committing to something that I could function in whether I was Debra Winger or not. Because nobody might care about that next week. ---->>>
