Quote of the Day (Actress Emily Watson, on Nixing ‘Big Stupid Movies for Big Stupid Money’)

“I was offered big stupid movies for big stupid money and said no because mostly I thought: I will come a cropper. I had a strong sense of what my currency was going to be, which was: interesting, intelligent, character-driven. I also had an instinct that it was a place for swimming with the sharks, which we now know it was.”—British actress Emily Watson (Breaking the Waves, Gosford Park), quoted in Horatia Harrod, “Breaking the Mould,” Financial Times, Apr. 13-14, 2019
