Personal Quote:

[on finding it difficult to understand people who view returning to TV after strictly working in film is a step down career-wise] I don't feel like I didn't succeed - The Grudge (2004) is still the second-highest female opening ever. And Ringer (2011) doesn't feel like a retrograde step, not to me. That is the weird perception, but I think it's slowly changing. See more »

Trivia:

Was invited to reprise the role of "Buffy Summers" in Buffy the Vampire Slayer (2002), and also in Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Chaos Bleeds (2003). Turned down both jobs because she had insisted on seeing their scripts, and never did. See more »
