(1996) Meg and I didn’t have any connections in Hollywood. I think it’s amazing that two girls who grew up really poor in rural Canada came to Hollywood and have successful careers and get nominated for Oscars out of nowhere – out of an idea I had. The thing is, we’re tremendously aggressive; we say, “This is what I want, why can’t that be me?”. I just knew I had to be an actress. I had some vision – this was when I was seven or eight – of myself at 40, a housewife with curlers in her hair, watching TV and crying because I had never followed my dream of being an actress. I always remember having that vision.
