As an actress, vanity is your enemy. If you're thinking about how you look, you're not going to give a good performance. Once I realized, 'Hmm, I guess I'm not that vain,' it's like something I wanted to protect. I can't imagine anyone could give the full dynamic performance they're capable of and still be vain.
One of my side strange abilities is to hear a good song, no matter how it's being performed. Even if you get a bad performance, I can still hear that there's a good song.
I can memorise lines quickly. Knowing Telugu now has helped improve my performance.

I think of myself as a performance artist. I hate being called a pop star. I hate that.
In most cases, my favorite Jethro Tull songs will be determined by how I feel about them as live performance songs, not by the recorded identity.
Those differences are what color the performance, but in the movies you don't get a chance to rehearse.
Where I come from, if you weren't a drag queen or a radical thinker or a performance artist of some kind, you were the weirdo.

For my money, when you're doing an on-camera performance, unless it's for something particularly stylised, you are, by and large, striving for naturalism.
During the songs, you transcend yourself. The best way to be in the performance is to be without pause and be essentially in the moment, in that moment of expression.

Salaries and wages must reflect the reality of the enterprise's economic performance; deviations from the planned performance should be reflected in pay.
I look at old performance videos now, and it's really funny - I thought I was such a gangster!
The kindest word to describe my performance in school was Sloth.
