Quotes

#Quote
1[on her college years in Ann Arbor] I was a hippie, but not a good one. I was secretly ambitious. I'd secretly watched the Academy Awards, which was definitely not cool.
2[on her role in "Just Between Friends") Sandy was the closest to me of any character I've played.
3(1998) I'm more proud of quitting smoking than of anything else I've done in my life, including winning an Oscar. I was so hooked on cigarettes that I allowed them to control my life. I had started smoking when I was 14 and after 20 years was up to 2 1/2 packs a day. I stay disciplined about eating right and working out now because once you get rid of something that self-destructive, you don't want unhealthy behavior anywhere in your life.
