Personal Quote:

When asked if she regretted making any films - Easy. There's a piece of shit called Virus (1999) which I made because another movie that I was supposed to do fell through. It was a bad choice and the movie is a piece of shit. The runner up is a movie called Grandview, U.S.A. (1984), which is this benign but still bad coming of age movie, which is just bad. I will never, ever see those films again... See more »
