Trivia:

One of her first jobs at the age of 15 was being a plainclothes security person at Gallery Drug Store. She was given a basket and walked up and down the aisles pretending to shop whilst patrolling for shoplifters. She only ever caught one old woman stealing Band-Aids, but didn't turn her in.
