Personal Quote:

[on being used often by husband Brian De Palma] If other people want to put me down, my work has to stand on its own.

Trivia:

While filming 1941 (1979) she took part in a betting pool on when the house would collapse in the final scene of the film. Dan Akyroyd eventually won that bet. See more »
