"I hate being looked at. Can’t stand it. I know, I know - I picked the wrong career. I should have been a doctor. If you play certain parts you have this nice face painted on you, and then you have feel as if you have a responsibility to this idea of being beautiful. I hate that about our business. There’s a perceived inverse relation between looks and talent. Look at Charlize Theron - she made herself ugly for ‘Monster’ and suddenly everyone said ‘she’s a genius.’ It shouldn’t be like that.”

Michelle: We’re good actors, huh?
I think that Cersei’s really envious of both her brothers purely because they’re brothers. She envies Tyrion’s intelligence and his wiliness, and she admires Jaime’s skill as a swordsman. She’s like, “I was taught to just be, and smile and have sex with whoever came through my door.”
Conan: Fans, some of them really hate her [Cersei] and they let you know that, don’t they.
What would your super power be?
Every time I took a sip of coffee, someone would magically get what they needed to make life OK. I drink a lot of coffee. Oh, and I’d like to fly.
