There is a place in this world for satire, but there is a time when satire ends and intolerance and bigotry towards religious beliefs of others begins.

The Color Purple (1982)
I like to play any character that allows me the freedom to explore it and teach the audience something they didn't know, and show them a journey they identify with ... or be inspired, or moved. Anything that touches someone's heart is important for me.
Interview on Filmcritic.com (2000)
When a subject is highly controversial -- and any question about sex is that -- one cannot hope to tell the truth. One can only show how one came to hold whatever opinion one does hold.

Jerry Maguire (1996). By Rod Tidwell.
