“[Oscar Acceptance Speech] This moment is so much bigger than me. This is for every nameless, faceless woman of color who now has a chance tonight because this door has been opened.”
“While being called beautiful is extremely flattering, I would much rather be noticed for my work as an actress.”
“I am a hopeless romantic. And I won’t stop till I get it right. I don’t think I’m unlike a lot of people. I am just someone who is trying to find that mate, and I think it’s a really hard thing to do. And I’m not willing to stay somewhere where I am really not happy. And I am not willing to pretend I am for the kid’s sake or so that I don’t have to go through another public humiliation.”
