Personal Quote:

The parts I've been most successful in are the ones I've desperately, desperately wanted. One of them being Four Weddings and a Funeral (1994). I couldn't think of anyone better for that part than me. And the other was The English Patient (1996). Occasionally, you read scripts and, well, there you are on the page. See more »

Trivia:

Admits to being difficult on the set of Gosford Park (2001). She did apologize to the cast and crew upon filming, but claims that she was in character during the production: "I was playing this woman who was difficult and so I became difficult". See more »
