Personal Quote:

I've never been the kind of actress whose sole interest was sex appeal, so I think that earns you some longevity. And I like character parts. It's a lot more fun and you don't have to rely on being the taste of the moment. That level of fame is probably very difficult to deal with.

Trivia:

In Blood Work (2002), she works with Clint Eastwood. In White Hunter Black Heart (1990), Eastwood plays a movie director based on her father, John Huston, in a story about his experiences making The African Queen (1951). See more »
