Personal Quotes (5)

In my experience, undertaking the scenes with nudity was extremely liberating.
There is nothing to hide, everything is flesh and bone. Everything has beauty; it's up to us to see it.
The film has to be challenging and exciting. I don't like doing boring films. But, unfortunately, sometimes you choose films for the popularity or the money, to put it bluntly.
I honestly never think that I have ever 'arrived'. It's all a process to me. Today I am lucky enough to be getting a lot of work that I'm passionate about, but one can never know what the future has in store.
A producer tried to use his power against me. I just took off my jewellery and said 'Bye bye'. He then sued me but nothing happened.
