Personal Quote:

[on her distinctive voice] It's not a normal voice. It doesn't fit into people's preconceptions about what a woman's voice should sound like. My mom doesn't think I have an unusual voice, though. I'm sure it's helped me get some roles. But Chasing Amy (1997), I almost didn't get. There was concern the voice would grate on some people -- which some critics said it did. See more »


She played Jason London's girlfriend in Dazed and Confused (1993) and his identical twin brother Jeremy London's ex-girlfriend in Mallrats (1995). Coincidentally, Ben Affleck appeared in both films. See more »
