I suppose I’d always been attracted to commitment-phobes because some part of me felt unlovable. It was a lot easier to fall for a guy who I knew, on some level, wouldn’t fall in love with me. There was nothing to risk. The real risk would be to finally be vulnerable to love.

I made a conscious decision not to tell anyone in my life. Now I tell people – don’t tell anyone your idea until you have invested enough of yourself in it that you are not going to turn back.

To be vulnerable, to be raw, to virtually expose your guts, I like doing that.

When men act up by being degrading, dismissive, condescending, shut off, or sullen, that can often dumbfound you as a woman and get you off balance. At that point, you can feel and look like a deer in the headlights, which makes you even more vulnerable to such a man’s next volley of vitriol.

It’s difficult, the synergy between Drake and our generation – my generation, anyway – in the sense that his music is vulnerable, he’s very open, and you can connect to it. Like ‘Started From The Bottom,’ for instance. Not many people would have thought about that, even though it is a simple song.

I won’t put myself in a position where I’m vulnerable.

Don’t get me wrong – I don’t want to be mean to the scammers. There are lots of people online who do that. I’m content merely having fun inventing, and I figure any time they’re spending with me is time in which they’re not scamming vulnerable adults out of their savings.
If you really do want to be an actor who can satisfy himself and his audience, you need to be vulnerable. You must reach the emotional and intellectual level of ability where you can go out stark naked, emotionally, in front of an audience.

Climate change is hugely exacerbated by changing patterns of how we choose to live, often in danger zones such as extremely vulnerable coastal zones – from New Jersey to the Philippines. This enormously increases the economic and human costs of hurricanes, rising seas and changing weather patterns.

It’s strong to be vulnerable. To be able to communicate with other women is one of the most powerful things.

I’m kind of emotionally dyslexic, and when I feel vulnerable or nervous, I laugh.
When I was sixteen I started acting, and I also started to embrace my tradition and culture. I had a young medicine man interpret for me what it is to be an Indian.

New motherhood is such a vulnerable and powerful time, but it’s also really hard.
I do have a problem with developments that hyper-exploit politically vulnerable communities for profit. That it continues is a shame upon us all, because we are all responsible for the future that we create.

The thing is, if I try to talk about acting, I come off as moaning. But I’m privileged. I think it’s all about control. Acting is vulnerable because you’re not in control of anything. You have to give up a lot of your trust; it’s up to somebody else what they do with what you’ve given them.
I was really looking for a sense of purpose, a sense of community. I guess you could say that made me vulnerable, but I think those are good things to want. More so than being naive, I would say I was extremely idealistic, and that’s something Nxivm exploited.

I’ve always known that I love directing but I was really aware of it while making ‘Beginners.’ I am my happiest when I’m on set directing. I am also my kindest. When the actors get in front of the camera, it makes them very vulnerable. I am so in love with them for trying so hard.
