On the success of A Star Is Born:
I only want to win now because I want that kid who feels like me, that misfit or outcast that didn’t belong, to win. The reward for me is that this movie is a win for them.
On keeping props from the set:
This is very precious to me. These are heirlooms, or they will be heirlooms one day. They are things I will want to show my little girl or little boy and say, "Here they are. You can touch them." I want them to have a close, tangible, poetic experience with the film the way I have.
On the success of "Shallow":
To me, that conversation is what makes the song successful and beautiful and why people cry when they hear it. It's because that man and woman connect, and they are listening to each other.
On watching the Oscars as a child:
I used to wrap myself in an Afghan or my grandmother's knitted blanket and stand on a podium while I watched the Oscars. I had big dreams as a child.
