Holly Hunter Quotes
I was born and raised on a farm, where boys had chores and girls did not, i.e., drive tractors, bale hay, take care of cattle.
The forcefulness of life is where vitality kind of intersects.
'Saving Grace' was a full stretch-out - literally, physically, spiritually, psychologically. And I needed to take a year-and-a-half off when it was over.
Even very ordinary people, upon closer examination, can often look extraordinary.
Privacy is paradise.
'Top Of The Lake' is a great story with a beginning, and a middle and an end, about darkness - it's like the heart of darkness. And everybody has got one. When I was reading it, I couldn't put it down, and I wanted to know what was going to happen next.
I guess I'm more of a direct person than an indirect one.
What does it mean to believe rather than to know? To surrender to something that's not fact but faith?
There's no way that anyone can know the ebb and flow of one's career. You can't know that. You can tell young actors it's going to be very difficult, but there's no way you can understand the difficulties and the rewards through description. You have to cellularly experience it.

I believe that there is good. I believe there is evil. Do I believe that they come from God who is watching us conduct myriad never-ending wars and looks benignly on because there's higher purpose to all of this? I don't think so.
I grew up on a farm. The worst-looking chickens are the best layers. The ones that are the scraggliest... those are usually the ones that are really cooking.

I'm not a media personality, I'm an actress. I want to protect that thing: the suspension of disbelief. The rest of it is just distraction.
I appreciate my instincts, but my instincts can be dead wrong. Circumspection can give you time.
As we get older, people close down. We get less adaptive, less flexible - literally. Curiosity can diminish, and you want safety. You want what you know.
I'm not a classically beautiful person, but hopefully it increases my longevity as an actress that my career isn't dependent on my great, great good looks.
I like the South: Southern literature and that relationship between grotesqueness and living below the Mason-Dixon line. But I also understand that people view it as a limitation - as an actor and as a person - perceptions that are really wrong: that you are ignorant and possibly illiterate, or that it's cute.
The rhythm of my career has always been very static, staccato and then silent, and then a lot of work, and then none.
I get cold really quickly, but I don't care. I like weather. I never understand why people move someplace so that they can avoid weather.
I've never directed, but it must be humbling.
I've never had a career of that kind of box office power. I've always learned the hard way.
I really admire people who are extraordinarily tolerant and patient.
I've never worked as much as I would've wanted to, and that's why I end up doing a lot of stage as well, because stage is a full course meal.
