What's the best advice that you've been
My dad said that if you believe the good reviews,
you have to believe the bad ones too, so I just don't read any
And the worst?
An ex-boyfriend never really agreed on my choice of projects.
But each one provided invaluable experience.
What was your childhood ambition?
To be an actress. At 16, I saw myself driving round the
Hollywood Hills in a red convertible.
To produce - to have a hand in some of the stories that I've
always wanted to tell.
What's the worst job you've done?
I've never had a real job so it would have to be a movie
called Bug Buster. I had to be covered in hundreds of
cockroaches. Now if I see a cockroach, it freaks me out.
What item couldn't you live without?
A toss-up between my glasses or my TV.
What's the most overused word in your vocabulary?
Genius. I say it at the most inappropriate moments.
What's your most irritating habit?
I pick my face. That's irritating to everybody that knows me.
What's the biggest misconception about you?
That I'm the kind of girl who can only play cheerleaders or
ex-models. It gets frustrating, because I have a brain and I
like to believe I have talent.
Who's you hero?
My mother. She's been through some difficult ordeals yet
still manages to enjoy life. I have a backache and I'm cursing
God. She lost a child and had breast cancer, and is still
saying, 'Gee, I love my life'.
What would you like engraved on your gravestone?
She made us laugh.
