1Margo [[Martindale]] said, 'I have this great script, but I'm too young for it, and, oh, my God, June, you're perfect for it'. She was right about the script being good. My mouth just hung open as I read it.
2[re nominations for Nebraska (2013)] I'm a little overwhelmed. So lucky...This woman came running up to me at the grocery store and said, 'Can I hug you?' And then she gave me a kiss on the cheek. Right there in the checkout line at Gelson's!
3[re late husband Charles Kakatsakis] He taught me how to work. I don't mean physically labor. I mean delivering what is needed in a part when it is needed. You can't just depend on instinct; it might not show up when you need it.
