Personal Quote:

Elzabeth was about dress-up. She loved her jewels. There's part of her that didn't grow up much. I love people who are still in touch with delight. I got to wear the jewels. The problem about it was that they weren't real..I did insist on having friends of mine do the wigs and the makeup because i didn't want to look like a man in drag. See more »
