Q&A with Tilda Swinton
TS: Golly. What works for one person may not work for all, but I would say stick with your friends. The fact that I have been more visible in recent years and have made more mainstream work is not actually anything to do with me. It has to do with the filmmakers who have approached me. It's more the mountain coming to Mohammad than me going out and looking for anything elsewhere. The great advantage of working for as long as I've worked is that people have a general idea of what they might be getting. So if they invite me to their parties, I imagine it's because they think I might fit in, and generally they're right. I'm a European and I live here and make most of my work here, but I love to travel. So there's something wonderful for me in going to America and making movies and finding such good comrades. Look for friends everywhere, and trust that you will find good company. That's probably as good a rule of thumb as I can think of. It has always served me very well.
