#Quote
1[on working with Peter Weir on The Truman Show (1998)] Peter sparkles, you just want to keep up with him. That film just grows more relevant with every year. When we made it, that idea was unthinkable.
2[excerpt from 2013 commencement speech] I hope you never give anyone the power to tell anyone how you feel about your own work. That is your responsibility alone. Critics are in a different profession than we are. Don't look to them for your truth.
3I have small feet for someone my height. I'm 5'7" and my feet are size 7. I fall down a lot, and I think my balance would be better if my feet were an 8.
4Part of her commencement speech at Juillard: Remember that no matter which art you practice, there is no more valuable skill than the ability to listen carefully. Especially when you listen to the music, or listen to the text, listen! They will guide you well.
5There are as many bad independent films as there are bad commercial films. I've been in some very good commercial films. Mystic River (2003) is a good movie. The Truman Show (1998) is a good movie.
6[About her hair color changing with nearly every role she has.] My mother always gets upset whenever my hair goes dark. She really hates it. And then going from dark to blonde takes a toll. It's amazing that I have a single strand of hair left on my head! (2007)
7[on doing different kinds of work]: I just want to say, "Go work! It doesn't matter what it is. Work begets work. Just go!"
8I guess whatever sense of community, discipline, the laws of truth for me have come from growing up in an artistic environment with people who are loving and look out for each other.
9Really, any sense of spirituality, which I do have, really comes from the arts that are sort of my inspiration.
10[on how she has benefited from receiving Oscar nominations]: It's helped me to keep working, quite frankly.
11A lifetime of work, particularly where you get to see an actor grow and change, is better than becoming a rock & roll movie star.
12With big, emotional roles it's very easy, especially if you've grown up in the American school of acting, to exploit your own pain. You have to be careful about that, because 9 times out of 10, your pain is not appropriate to the character. You can watch someone on-stage cry and cry - but in the audience you feel nothing. It's easy to become indulgent. For me, what's important is the story first.
13I tend to make low-budget movies but, yeah, I make more money than I ever thought I would make.
14People can't really place me. They're not really sure who I am. Sometimes they think I'm Helen Hunt. Sometimes they think I'm Laura Dern.
15When you work and live on a film set for 12, 14 hours a day and moving from location to location, it's hard just to exist.
16(On making You Can Count on Me (2000)) Kenneth Lonergan and I locked horns. It was about tiny things that would drive me crazy. He was very specific about his script being word perfect.
17[on her fame]: I don't consider myself a celebrity and I don't consider myself a star.
18[on her father]: My parents were divorced and I didn't grow up with him, but I spent a lot of time around him and his influence on me has been profound.
19[on her character in The Truman Show (1998)]: The concept of The Truman Show - it was so much fun. What gave us all an additional challenge was that those of us who were the cast play the actors but playing a role. So we did all this elaborate back-story. So I made up my actress name Hanna Gill, who plays Meryl Burbank, who is married to Truman Burbank. So we did all this double layering of character work not really knowing what was going to come through. I'm glad that some of the people who have seen the movie can say that they can actually see it in all of us. All of us who play the characters surrounding Jim (Jim Carrey) in the film, that they can see the double layer.
20[on her character on The Truman Show (1998)]: Well the thing that was interesting was that we sort of did these back stories about these characters and where they were and what was going on with them. And when the movie picks up, Hanna Gill, who plays Meryl Burbank, is aware of the fact that she is losing her influence over Truman. He's not happy at home. He's beginning to get agitated. He's beginning to think of things outside the house, and she can feel that she is losing her power. So consequently the smile gets bigger and bigger and the desperation, that is why there is that intense undertow to her. Because she knows she is losing it.
21[on Jim Carrey]: He has tremendous charm. He has an enormous heart, just a big big heart. I think that is the thing. I think if you look at his other work you can see that there, which is what makes his characters more than just mimicry. I think that is why his work has hit so hard. Because there is just more there. So with this one, you see more of his humanity.


Looks like we don't have Laura Leggett Linney trademarks information. Sorry!
