The actress-turned-director is "fascinated" by depression, a subject she explores in new movie 'The Beaver', and says working on films about challenging subjects help her to deal with her own problems better.
She explained: "I think depression is fascinating, there was a lot of depression in my family. Making movies about people in spiritual crises helps me to come to terms with my own spiritual crisis.

British band Little Man Tate has devastated fans by announcing its members are to split.
The quartet formed in 2005, but after four years together they've decided to go their separate ways.
In an announcement on their MySpace blog, the group tells fans, "It's something that we have sat down and discussed at length for a while now and we have decided that after a good innings, we've achieved what we set out to do and it's time we moved on to other things.
"We're all still good mates and we'll carry on supporting each other whatever we decide to go on and do from here."

British rockers Little Man Tate have been forced to cancel a string of gigs after their lead singer was attacked on a night out.
Frontman Jon Windle was drinking with his bandmates in Brighton, England on Wednesday (09Jun08) celebrating the group's new record deal, when he was set upon by a gang.
In an apparently unprovoked attack, Windle was punched repeatedly in the face - leaving him with a fractured jaw, and extensive cuts and bruises.
The injuries have made it impossible for him to sing, so the group have now scrapped planned appearances at this weekend's (12-13Jun08) festivals including Scotland's T In The Park and Ireland's Oxegen.

The two groups had to be separated by police and staff at Aston University, England after a brawl broke out on Saturday (07Jun08) over a misunderstanding about their backstage requests.
A statement from Sheffield, England-based Little Man Tate says, "The Troubadours were acting like rock 'n' roll thugs all day, stealing bottles of Jack Daniels and winding everybody up. When they threatened our sound man, vocalist Jon Windle confronted them and it was carnage."
But The Troubadours have hit back in their own official release, claiming that the alcohol was for everyone, not just the Sheffield rockers.

Little Man Tate guitarist BEN SURTEES was arrested for drunken behaviour at England's Reading Festival on Friday night (24Aug07).
The Sexy In Latin bassist was too intoxicated to leave the VIP bar when he was asked by bouncers to leave.
Police cautioned Surtees before releasing him.
The four-piece is set to play the festival on Sunday (26Aug07).
British band Little Man Tate are annoyed they are compared to Arctic Monkeys just because they both hail from Sheffield, England.
The band admit the Brainstorm hitmakers success in their hometown turned the spotlight on fledging bands in the area, but wish people would stop assuming they are only famous because of where they lived.
Speaking at new London club Rage, frontman Jon Windle says, "We're very different - we don't know them, and they don't know us, so I don't why we're always compared to them.
"It seems just because we both come from the same town people assume we copycats or whatever."
