Personal Quote:

I don't feel threatened like Julia Roberts. Pretty Woman (1990) turned her into an overnight celebrity rather than an actress. Now her whole career is about box-office -- if her movies don't break $l00-million. It's not a burden I'd ever want to carry. See more »

Trivia:

Was considered for the role of Velma Kelly in Chicago (2002), but Catherine Zeta-Jones was cast instead. See more »

Trademark:

Frequently plays a character who writes. In most of her films, she has played a journalist, a reporter, a writer or just a teenager who writes in a journal or diary. See more »

Nickname:

Noni

Star Sign:

Scorpio
