Personal Quote:

In my first apartment in L.A., Jodie Foster lived upstairs, and we'd do laundry together. She's so smart. She told me to resist doing things that other people say you should do. Don't be 'strategic'! I was up for this movie, Mobsters (1991), and everyone said I should do it. But Jodie said, "You have to feel very connected to something before you do it." So I turned it down. And it was a flop.

Trivia:

For the first time in 17 years, she would have to audition for a role, as the film crew of The Dilemma (2011) wished to see what actress could create the right chemistry with Vince Vaughn. She originally auditioned for "Beth", put they found her perfect for "Geneva". See more »
