Personal Quote:

[about her character "Christy Wills" in The Secret of My Succe$s (1987)] At first I wanted her to appear more military-like, wearing more blue and the like, but then Herb [director Herbert Ross] told me to have her display more female qualities, which turned out to be right because we could then see she was more apt to being both an executive and a woman.
