The fact that I got Drugstore Cowboy at all was a fluke.
– Kelly Lynch
I just think we’re living in a time of massive, amazing change, like the Industrial Revolution on acid.
Cause I won’t repeat myself, the way I dress and look.
I make a good living and I’ve never looked at myself as being an artiste.
My whole career is based on taking a left turn after each film and doing the opposite of what I’ve just done.
Well, I’m a consumer as well. I go to the movies with my popcorn and believe everything I see.
That’s where I got my start and where I’ll continue to work, but I can’t tell you the number of films between Drugstore Cowboy and Curly Sue that I auditioned for and wanted that didn’t choose me.
If it’s independent, it’s because I love it… ’cause they usually end up costing me money to do.
You look at Gone With the Wind, how right Vivian Leigh was for that. Don’t know if that would happen today.
Yeah, I do feel badly sometimes, not for whose coming up and getting roles I’m not right for anymore but the people I compete with, who range from Uma Thurman on up.
I’ve been overwhelmed; I was a single mother for a time.
And sometimes I do films so my daughter can see me work.
In a collaborative environment directors hire actors because they want their input, not just their bodies.
I do come shackled with whatever people think I am.
I don’t care what people’s myths are about me.
Well, for someone who looks like me you wonder where Alfred Hitchcock is.
I like to show as much of a woman as I can. I like to fill things out.
You know, I change my hair color a lot, I do all sorts of different things.
It’s part of the fun of it to work with strong personalities.
Most movie stars don’t change their look at all.
I think right now in the world we’re feeling like there’s no solid ground beneath our feet, you know?
It’s important for me to see as many colors in the character as possible.
But actors at a certain point take the best of what’s available to them.
I can’t wait til I get the chance to be a character and how my face looks isn’t the first consideration.
The least consideration of any film I’ve ever worked on is who is right for it.
The worst thing would be for them to find out who I really am, because that’s where I hide.
