Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

I don't know if I ever really wanted to be an actor. I'm an active person - the thought of waiting for the phone to ring wasn't something that sat happily with me. But I kept doing it, trying not to do it, and then doing it. There's such a blessed unrest that you feel all the time, but maybe that's what keeps you going. See more »

Trivia:

Was originally cast as Izzi Creo in The Fountain (2006), but was forced to drop out of the film due to scheduling conflicts with Little Fish (2005). Rachel Weisz was then cast instead. See more »

Trademark:

Known for playing many different roles with multifarious personalities, such as the young sensible English queen Elizabeth in Elizabeth (1998), the rude, hustling wife in The Shipping News (2001), and the dangerous Russian villain in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008).
