NOTES

"When people ask me what I do, acting is usually the furthest thing from my mind. It's a lack of confidence, in a way--I've hidden my insecurities for so long. . . . Still, for the first time, I'm really enjoying acting. It seems not such a bogus thing to do with your life." --Sarah Polley, quoted in the TORONTO SUN, November 13, 1996

On children going into show business: "I don't blame my parents, because they did everything they could to discourage me. But my kids won't do this, EVER. It's not that It makes you grow up too fast. It stunts your growth. Because you're in a really foolish, false world with completely screwed-up people trying to get ahead. I don't know if it's any place for an adult, let alone a kid." --quoted in "Suddenly Sarah" by Brian D Johnson in MACLEAN'S, September 8, 1997

"It's weird. All of that stuff that got written about me was really an indication of who I was at 16. I was militant. I did take myself too seriously. But that's the problem with deciding not to create an image for yourself: People create one for you. And for the last nine years I've been different, but this humorless, angry person kept coming across in the media."---Polley on her politically active past EW April 2, 2004
