They left me in the street, thinking I was dead.
Believe me, I wanted to be.
"At 19, I read a sentence that re-terraformed my head: “The level of matter in the universe has been constant since the Big Bang.”
In all the aeons we have lost nothing, we have gained nothing - not a speck, not a grain, not a breath. The universe is simply a sealed, twisting kaleidoscope that has reordered itself a trillion trillion trillion times over.
Each baby, then, is a unique collision - a cocktail, a remix - of all that has come before: made from molecules of Napoleon and stardust and comets and whale tooth; colloidal mercury and Cleopatra’s breath: and with the same darkness that is between the stars between, and inside, our own atoms.
When you know this, you suddenly see the crowded top deck of the bus, in the rain, as a miracle: this collection of people is by way of a starburst constellation. Families are bright, irregular-shaped nebulae. Finding a person you love is like galaxies colliding. We are all peculiar, unrepeatable, perambulating micro-universes - we have never been before and we will never be again. Oh God, the sheer exuberant, unlikely face of our existences. The honour of being alive. They will never be able to make you again. Don’t you dare waste a second of it thinking something better will happen when it ends. Don’t you dare."
”It is said that I’m distant and cold. I’m just someone who’s very shy. I’m not comfortable doing interviews because I have to talk about myself. To talk about yourself, you have to know yourself pretty well and I feel like there are still some shades in me that I don’t know about.”

“I’m washing my truck, and Rob drops in on me suddenly. It was so tense shooting Twilight, and there’s this little scene that felt like it was out of an ’80s teen movie. He does this cool little move, and we’re sort of dancing around each other. We still talk about this scene and how fun it was. He remembers what I was wearing. I remember everything about that day.”
”I’m a naturally pretty shy person, which I’m cool with now. I used to think it was this affliction I had to overcome.”

"I’m fairly domestic. I really like to cook and stay home a lot. I probably don’t seem like quite the Suzy Homemaker, but I’m good at it. Like, I can take care of a home. Like, uh… I can cook a meal, at least. (laughs).”
