Personal Quote:

[on her reaction to Arnold Schwarzenegger being cast as the Terminator in the original film] I didn't take Schwarzenegger very seriously as an actor at that time. I said, "Oh Lord, why cast a man who looks like a machine as a machine? Cast somebody who's very thin to do these superhuman acts." And I was wrong. He was used tremendously effectively, and he was served very well by that film. See more »

Trivia:

Has an identical-twin sister (Leslie Hamilton Gearren), an older brother and a younger sister. See more »
