I look cold or unreachable when I'm really just insecure. I am hypercritical of how I look, how I act, how I come across interviews. Each new year, I make the same resolution: Be kinder to yourself. I try to stay positive, but it never lasts. I've been in therapy for a few years and don't look at my pictures or read what people say.
My mother always made me feel powerful. My parents were in love, encouraging my brother and I in everything we did – whether she continued performing after seeing Annie on Broadway at the age of five or spending hours rolling in the front yard. As a teenager, I was discouraged, I was ready to leave the small town where I grew up earlier than I could.
Make lists after breakups, they focus your mind when you are desperate or desperate. Mourning the end of a relationship is important, but so is the perspective. I write all the things that didn't work as a reminder of the bad things; another with what I want from a future partner. Passionate releases are also an antidote, who doesn't want an ego boost from time to time?
Bernie Sanders is fucking punk and pure. I am petrified with the US government now. We need someone radical to face Trump, and Bernie's track record as a senator speaks for itself. Honestly, at this stage, I will campaign for whoever is a Democrat. We just have to go out and fight.
My father passed away when I was 20, and to be honest, I'm still trying to figure out how to deal with the loss. I have a picture of my father on a necklace that I wear and his initials on my keychain.
I was driving to a wedding in northern New York a few weeks ago and was arrested by police for speeding. They had my license and found that I had a warrant pending since 1991 that I didn't remember. I could have been arrested, but the soldier let me out. I haven't driven since.
My trash causes me a lot of anxiety. I look at the amount of trash I generate and it fills me with dread, and I end up flying a lot to work. Everything seems like total hypocrisy, as we are on the verge of an environmental catastrophe. I'm working on it, but I wish I could be better.
Intimacy matters to me more than sex. I don't know if it's because I'm a triple Scorpio or that I was so lovingly bathed as a child, but I always yearn for a physical touch. Performative sex is boring, for me everything is feeling something, really connecting. This is how I approach sex scenes: They work only if you trust your partner, and together you can find some truth.
