On the legacy she wants to leave: “I love black people. I love telling stories. I want these little girls to study me like I studied Meryl and Bette Davis and Carol Burnett. I want them to study my work, because I put a lot of work in, a lot of blood, sweat, and tears.”
On dating: “I would love to [be in a relationship], but he has to see how I move and deal with it, because I don’t have time to explain. I’ve got work to do.”
On doing her own laundry: “That keeps me normal. That keeps me feeling like, Yeah, I’m not too Hollywood.” (source)
