I just wanted to be married and to be happy ever after.
I did everything I could to stay in college and pay my own way, so I think that if success hadn't come so quickly, I would still be pursuing it.
Money's not important to me. Movie star acknowledgement is not important to me. I don't want to be a big studio actress. I don't want to be in the limelight.
I just want the opportunity to continue to do great films, play great characters and work with great people.
I went to Marymount College in New York City with a lot of kids whose parents paid their way, and I wouldn't even have thought of asking my parents - they couldn't afford it, not with six kids!
I truly believe that God brought this, Dorothy Day script to me, because for a long time up until I was in eight grade - I wanted to be a nun.
Nudity... I have to say I will never do it again.
We're not all called to be Dorothy Day.
I never had to pound the pavement and really struggle after college.
I do have the freedom to choose what I want to do and I'll continue to do that.
I grew up mostly with classical, big band, and a lot of Irish music - I really didn't start listening to rock and roll until I was maybe sixteen.
A few months after graduation I was working in films. It took off pretty quick.
I used to babysit a lot, and I used to be a nanny.
I'd love to have the opportunity to sing in a Disney movie.
I get a lot of recognition for my voice. That always surprises me.
An audience is going to be able to find a little bit of Dorothy in themselves and relate to this woman.: roles like Dorothy Day are so rare in Hollywood.
Children are so creative and imaginative that they just bring you to life all over again.
You know, I like playing around with my voice and trying all different types of kooky voices.
But what I like to sing mostly is blues and cabaret style.
There are a lot of battles to face, and if I didn't have that religious core - that base to turn to - I would be truly lost.
