  • I'm terribly shy, but of course no one believes me. Come to think of it, neither would I.
  • My mother said to me, "You're revolting. And on top of that, you're not very feminine." Well, that led me to the stage, which is an accepting and comfortable place. So in a way, I have my mother to thank.
