Happy Birthday: Rachael Taylor

Transformers (2007) was important and defining for me because it taught me about what kinds of movies I want to make and the kind of actor I want to be, and I have a long way to go before I become that actor.

The earth is such a voluminous, sparse, wild place that has its own rhythm that human beings try to control and strategize our way around, but the truth is, if you’re out someplace like the ocean on a capsized boat, it doesn’t matter if you have academic degrees, or if you’re a martial-arts ninja. Nature is a bigger force than you.

Sometimes when Australians go overseas, it’s as though the “Aussie” is refined out of them. I don’t know why. It’s never happened to me, because I’m really proud of it. I’m not embarrassed about where I’m from or who I am any more. I know who I am. I don’t fit in everywhere, but I know where I do fit in.
When you are in control of what the final product is, there is kind of no limitation to what you feel like you can do because you know that if you don’t like it, you can just cut it out.
