Diane Lane - Secretariat
Santa Anita Racetrack, Arcadia

Q1: Diane, I wanted to ask you about playing Penny. It seems to be this is also a story about a woman taking charge and coming into her own as an owner and as someone who gets things done. I'm wondering for you, in terms of talking to Penny and also playing this character who is of this period of the early 70s when women were coming out and so forth, what was that like for you?
DL: Thank you for the question. First of all, it was very surreal to spend time with the real Penny Chenery because invariably it's unusual to spend time with somebody that you're going to be bringing to the screen. It adds a level of...it raises the stakes. Personally, I really wanted to make it a gratifying experience for her. But, as far as the times that the film took place in and the glass ceiling that was, I don't think it was even recognized as being there or an issue. I don't think that Penny ever took on or saw herself in a vainglorious manner...
