  • Jane: I'm very picky, very critical. I have done projects in the past that I didn't think were very good, because I was just happy to work--my agent used to say I'd work for a steak and $1.50--but I'm not really doing that anymore.

  • Jane: (on Steve Carell) He's just a rock-solid improviser so I feel so safe when I'm improvising with him. I've known him for a long time and he's always been a notch above everybody else - and the nicest guy in the room.

  • Jane: I am fascinated by what people think they're pulling off. We try to present ourselves in a certain way in the world, and some of us are better at it than others. I mean, we all wear these masks to protect ourselves, you know? Even when we walk into a room and just try to be special, like 'Look, I just walked into this room, look at me,' it's how we do it. That fascinates me.
