Personal Quote:

[why she turned down Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003)] They offered me a part. I read it and knew my character arc was so complete after the first two, but in the third one it was negligible. She died halfway through and there was no time to mourn her. It was all so disposable so I said no thank you. See more »


James Cameron offered her the role of Molly Brown in Titanic (1997) (ultimately played by Kathy Bates), but she declined. See more »
