On female politicians:
“In my limited experience, I would say that female politicians can be a bit more forthcoming, open. I don’t mean they’re spilling the beans or saying things they shouldn’t, but I don’t feel a guard in the same way. Maybe it’s a female-to-female thing.”

On her longevity:
“I’ve followed my instinct. I’ve tried to be as thoughtful as I could be and pure in my thinking in terms of looking at projects and, by the way, the people who are attached to those projects. It’s kind of like getting married to a stranger: You spend a lot of time together, and you have to be in sync creatively—and you can’t always know that. For instance, with Armando, I didn’t really know him that well, or at all, actually. And then you sign your life away.”

On her Veep character:
“I play a character who’s a straddler. Her ideology is, ‘I am a political animal, and I will get reelected at all costs.'”
