    • Jacinda: The weird thing is that this is not a business where you can predict what's gonna happen and say well I've reached this level, this is what's gonna happen next. I mean you may never work again or people may respond to your work and you might be set for the rest of your life, so it's such a business of extremes that it's really hard for me to take stock of where I'm at.

    • Jacinda: (in a 2006 interview) I've never watched the box office of things until recently when I realized how much money it makes also has a massive bearing on the actors because no matter how great your movie is if it doesn't make a lot of money it doesn't help you in the long run. But I try not to get into all that stuff because it's really zero I can do about it.

    • Jacinda: (after having her first baby) It's amazing. Just seeing her everyday, you know... She's just started smiling, and it's just the simplest thing, a smile.

    • Jacinda: Living in different cultures helped me work out who I was going to be, separate from where I came from.

    • Jacinda: (about preferring drama over comedy) I prefer drama; I think character-driven drama is my favorite kind of stuff to go watch and I like being challenged by that kind of stuff in that way.

    • Jacinda: (on having different movie projects) I think it's nice to have really diverse material in different genres, and I think it shows that you have a range and you're willing to put yourself out there.

    • Jacinda: I think marriage gets a negative rap, but I found it to be one of the most profound, fantastic experiences of my life.

    • Jacinda: (on the secret to love) Know that the person you wake up with everyday isn't the same person you married. That person keeps changing. Know that and accept that.

    • Jacinda: (on doing the water scenes in the movie Poseidon) Growing up in Australia you're always around water, so you learn to swim before you can walk. You're thrown in there… It's almost more important than walking. So yeah, that helped me, doing the water scenes.

    • Jacinda: (on losing her Australian accent) I'm losing my Aussie accent. It's sad. I grew up in Brisbane, but I've been away so long - I was 17 when I left Australia. I went to Europe, Japan - but I didn't lose my accent until I had to play an American in so many films. And then I married an American, which probably has something to do with it. So now it's practically gone. I have to go back and live in Australia and get it back!

    • Jacinda: (on her pilot licence & adventurous spirit) I have my pilot licence. Just for single-engined planes. I have an adventurous spirit. I can take a passenger but those planes are so small - they only take up to six people at the most. My husband doesn't like it so much, but I'll get him up there one day.
