Why Actress Patricia Clarkson Loves Her Life
The Cairo Time star talks about shooting nude scenes, her best and worst health habits, and life as a single, 50-something woman.
If you were recovering in a hospital and could have anyone, from any era, recovering next to you, who would it be and why?
I would probably pick the great actor Peter Sellers. I think he'd be the best of both worlds. I think he would be intelligent and funny.
Is the best part of your life in front of you or behind you?
Oh my God, I hope in front of me. It's been a great life, but I hope it's going to get even better, personally, professionally. I'm very happy right now and I hope it continues.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
I don't think my life will be dramatically different 10 years from now. And I hope it's not. I hope I'm still personally and professionally happy, but [that] I've learned a little something. Hopefully I'm a better person 10 years from now.
Do you still think you'll still be working at the same rate?
Well, I hope! Oh my goodness. That would be swinging -- 60, and to be still going strong!
