Personal Quote:

[after being rejected for the femme fatale role in Tomorrow Never Dies (1997) at age 39] I'd never felt more sexy and more confident as a woman, and more ready as an actress. Yet, as I quickly discovered, if you were over 35, you weren't any of those things as far as Hollywood is concerned.

Trivia:

1996: Was turned down for the part of a Bond Girl, reportedly because the director thought she was too old. See more »
