[When asked about her sex appeal and how she might have used it to her advantage in her career] I never really thought of myself as being that sexy; my thinking has always been that every woman is sexy! My manager really thought I could look attractive and sexy, while at the same time carrying a gun on screen. I could be convincing, and have the sexuality and toughness intermixed, which is a great combination. I worked in European films at first, which are naturally much more sexual in nature, so I was already comfortable with playing those roles when I started in Hollywood.
I love being a strong female on the screen. It suits me fine and I think it's nice that young girls can see some of their own inner fantasies on film. Boys have Clint Eastwood. I hope that girls enjoy seeing me leaping about. Young people need fantasy in their lives. They need larger-than-life figures to watch.
I have a tendency to play larger-than-life figures, which is good. I would never want to play a nurse or a housewife. You can see those people in everyday life. How boring!
I love playing women who are not ashamed to be strong. There are many of us out there, you know, and we would love to see more of us on the screen.
What I am is the new dream girl - one who has both body and intelligence.
