Personal Quote:

[about her work with James Woods] It's kind of like being pregnant. You know, you go through the initial joy of it. Then you go through wanting it to be over. And then you're finished with it and you forget how bad it was. See more »

Trivia:

She stays on good terms with her ex-husbands (Steven Bauer, Don Johnson, and Antonio Banderas), since they share children together (Alexander Bauer, Dakota Johnson, Stella Banderas). She attends events with them and posts pictures on her twitter and instagram accounts with flattering captions calling them "handsome". See more »
