One of her favorite horror films is the original When a Stranger Calls (1979). She said that she made the mistake of watching the film while babysitting her younger step-sister and swore off babysitting after watching the film.
Her ancestry includes Ashkenazi Jewish (from her paternal grandmother), English, German, and distant Irish.
Ranked #5 on Maxim's "Hottest Women of Horror Movies" list.
Attended the Webb Schools in Claremont, California for her freshman and sophomore years of high school.
Attended Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas for one year (1992-1993) before dropping out.
She is a natural blond like her mother, but she dyes her hair black on occasions because she doesn't want people to recognize her as merely the daughter of Cheryl Ladd. She wants to get acting jobs on her own merit and talent. She appears in many of her films with dark hair, such as The Specials (2000) and Never Been Kissed (1999). However, she seems to have decided to stick with her blond hair in recent films like Cabin Fever (2002).
[Regarding her refusal to do a topless scene] You have to pay for the DDs in LaDD!
I love to travel but hate traffic and planes. I wish I could just beam myself anywhere instantly. Wiggle my nose or shake my ass - bam! - I'm in Quebec.
