14. On Being Famous
Being an actor may sound like a dream job, but it’s not easy having the world watch your every move. And when Emmy worked with Sean Penn and Clint Eastwood on Mystic River they had some really good advice for her on the subject. She explains, “Sean Penn and Clint Eastwood have told me that I shouldn’t feel that I need to be in the limelight or the spotlight all the time. A career is about longevity, as shown in their careers. So, I really want to only do the best things and work with the best people. That’s what I strive to do.” We think it’s refreshing to see an actress who is thinking about her career long term and not concerning herself too much with her celebrity status.
