Personal Quote:

[on performing in television versus onstage] Theatre is more tiring, demanding, more frightening, everything. Film, you have to get up early in the morning, and I hate that. Both are powerful mediums. But the great thing about theatre is you do material you don't normally do on film. And you're the editor of your performance onstage. See more »

Trivia:

Before marrying director Taylor Hackford in 1997, she had lived with him in Los Angeles since 1986. See more »
