10Was homeless for almost a year, sleeping at friends' houses or in bus shelters between the ages 13 - 14.

12Parents' names are Peter and Pamela.
13Has two siblings, a brother and a sister. Beothe Marcus (born 1971) is a Royal Marine, sister Penny (born 1972) works with children with learning disabilities.
14Her parents split up when she was just three and she lived with her father until she was eight when she was made a ward of court, because neither of her parents could take care of her and her siblings. Her father was an abusive alcoholic and the mother trapped in a violent relationship with her second husband.

16In 2006, a piece of 17th century plaster fell on her head, causing a stroke. She spent time in physical and speech therapy, learning how to walk and remaster her speaking skills. She went straight from therapy into filming Synecdoche, New York (2008). She reports "I still have a slight dis-fluency, sentences are spaced differently, but I was given a clean bill of health.".
17She has a reputation for being difficult on set, by her own admission: in an interview given with The Guardian Weekend magazine in 2009, she stated that it was fair enough to tell crew members to shut it if they were chatting away while she was giving it her all - she works hard and expects others to do so, too.

Quotes

#Quote
1That first Oscar nomination did incredible things for me in the States. I'm grateful for that. It means that I'm able to get an independent movie financed. My name can raise money on a small-budget film. It means I'm able to support the industry.
2The more you do, the more your name stands up and what's for you won't pass you. Besides, Hollywood frightens me. Selling yourself in order to work. Giving a pound of your flesh. Good stories need good actors to make them believable. The more you see someone on magazine covers or selling shampoo, the less you can relate to them as that character.
3I think people found me unnervingly truthful without any filter in my mouth, and this was deemed very bad, especially for a woman. You are not meant to tell somebody to fuck off if they are being rude - you are meant to find a political, tactical way to get out of a situation. When I was younger if I thought somebody was abusing me I would point it out immediately. I think you just grow up.
4In films, it's just that one minute you're strong, then you're told you're difficult. The minute you say, 'No, I won't take my top off' or 'No, I won't work overtime', you're bloody difficult.
5Woody Allen makes Woody Allen comedies and they are all about him. Steven Spielberg likes to tell someone else's story and it is not only about him. Fine direction such as Spielberg's is rare. You have to be very confident to direct actors. Too many directors merely know where to point the camera.
6Acting and music are self indulgent professions and they are a luxury unless you love what you do. I have a love/hate relationship with what I do. I think, 'Where's the relevance of this? I'm not a doctor, I'm not an aid worker.' But then I think you only have one life and I am a vessel for stories to be told.
7With publicity, you have to retain a level of privacy. For me, work and my life shouldn't be one and the same.
8My foster mother died and I did not have a relationship with my real parents. I know who they are. It's not upsetting; it's just the way it is. You cannot change things. My childhood isn't like an albatross around my neck.
