Why would anyone ban such a thing? It's ridiculous. Hide

When I did press conferences people would shout abuse at me. You'd think I invented sex! I got told I was a whore and a slut and how could I do it. And what kind of role model did I think I was giving young women? Hide

What I find in films I see is that sex is always a turning point in action, someone's cheating on someone, or someone dies. It's always the kids having sex in horror films that die. And I didn't like that. And in the sexually explicit films I've seen like Ai no korîda (1976) [the Japanese classic in which the heroine cuts off her partner's penis], they're crazy, people don't do that, it's not normal!

It's as though I couldn't continue without religion in my life. Hide

I am not at all like Lisa, and I was genuinely shocked by the reaction to the film and, particularly, to my role in it. Hide

I wanted people to question their own moral identities as I had. I wanted the audience to ask themselves, "Why don't I like this?" "Why does this bother me?" I sacrificed myself, so that the audience could find out a little more about themselves. Hide
