Claire: As an actor you get used to being uncomfortable; if you're not in freezing cold water in the middle of winter, then you're bound and gagged.
(on interest in video games)
Claire: That's something again that I haven't really explored. For some reason I haven't found myself sitting in front of the TV and doing it.
Claire: I'd been offered horror movies over the years but it is a genre that genuinely terrifies me until I can't sleep at night.
Claire: I think as an actor, and especially as you get older, you can relate to so many more things and connect to things on a deeper level even if they haven't happened to you. You can find a place within yourself and you can connect to that. One of the beauties of acting is that as you get older, it's always challenging, but it's always an interesting journey.
(on the attention she got from doing "Meet Joe Black" and how it affected her)
Claire: That was the year my mother was dying, and died, so to be honest it was so far from my mind. I missed all of that because I was in a very different place at that time.
(on the question of being dramatic as a child)
Claire: I was shy to start off with, but I liked to sing and dance around the house. I would escape into American TV and films - probably too much for my own good.
(on being cast in "Meet Joe Black" alongside legendary actors Sir Anthony Hopkins and Brad Pitt)
Claire: I was just so moved that I was going to get to participate. Then, when I was confronted with the cast, blind panic set in. I begged and pleaded with God to not let me suck.
Claire: I'm an illegal alien and have been for many years. If you rub my skin, I go green.
Claire: But Basquiat is the first thing I've done that I'm really proud of.

Claire: After I saw the first thing I ever did, I got a migraine.
