"Obviously an Oscar is not something that can ever hurt your career. In fact, it only does wonderful things for it. The only thing that’s really changed is my personal life, being able to go out and stuff like that. It’s a bit more complicated. But besides that, nothing’s changed."
Like it or not, the film industry is mainly run by men and men aren’t the best at seeing past appearances. If they see me with chapped lips, beat-up face and wool hat, they’re never going to cast me in a womanly, feminine role. Men are stupid when it comes to things like that.
