    • Lili: (on how she choses her roles) I think what's important to me in taking a part is whether or not the director can get as much creative control as possible.

    • Lili: The weird thing about this business and I'm sure this operates in many other things, but it's very present and acute in this business is that a lot of people don't realize that they have power. Particularly actors.

    • Lili: I tried to do the commercial thing. But I don't want to keep shoving Twinkies down everyone's throat. People are hungry for something of more substance.

    • Lili: It's been very important for me to follow my gut or my heart, or whichever organ you want to go by.

    • Lili: I see my job as an actor to be as good a channel as I can be. Acting is a gift, and I have respect for it.

    • Lili: I do believe there's good in all of us, even if it's layered over so thickly.

    • Lili As a woman, a lot of stories haven't been told and we've got a lot of catching up to do.

    • Lili: I guess the characters I play may be at the more destructive edge of the spectrum, more damaged or whatever, but I find a lot of female roles uninteresting. I would rather play someone who's fucked-up and deep than someone who's one-dimensional and invisible. I would rather drive something and be crazy than be forgotten and nothing.
