  • On watching herself in 12 Years a Slave: "I was really nervous about seeing myself, because it had been such a profound experience in all ways. I remember it being one of the most joyful times in my life — and also one of the most sorrowful. I didn't want my experience to be a vain one. But I will say that when I watched it, my heartstrings were pulled so tight for Solomon that I couldn't go into the ego trip. I cried — I mean, I was inconsolable. I wept for an hour after the movie."
