I’m off on a tangent, but I was just thinking that we, in our society, have not yet figured out how to deal with successful women. First of all, women certainly didn’t have a chance in my mother’s generation, it wasn’t in our culture. Yes, there have always been extraordinary women who have been out of the norm who have succeeded, but a lot of times, they’re labeled. I played Patty Hewes [on “Damages”], who was a lawyer and is as tough as any guy, and she was labeled as a “bitch.” Although, sometimes, she was bitchy! But it’s an interesting time in our culture where hopefully we’ll embrace new norms. I think it’ll just make us richer.
