Personal Quote:

[on the different filmmakers she worked with] Everybody, even all the people with talent and genius, they had their own kind of way. But there is one way they are all the same: They're very human, and they have this sense of giving to you. It doesn't matter what kind of way they're doing it, as long as it's getting to you-as long as you're on the same road. See more »
