Personal Quote:

[on Gena Rowlands] As a young actress I saw her in Opening Night (1977). She was so larger-than-life, yet her performances are so detailed- no color is left out. She's ferocious, beautiful, elegant, compassionate, funny, sexy. A broad in the best sense of the word - that's what I aspire to be. See more »

Trivia:

She is of Italian descent. Her family is from Tuscany, Sicily, Campania, and Calabria. See more »

Trademark:

Usually plays characters that are, or have been in, damaged relationships and/or have emotionally damaged lives. See more »
