Over the years I have become a good actress. I put on a happy face, or a strong face. I always felt like I had something to prove. People can say anything about how I look, how I talk, how I act. But in seven years I’ve never missed or canceled an assignment and I’ve never been late. No one can say I don’t work hard.”
