Personal Quote:

I was sitting in the parking lot looking at the material, and I didn't have it, I didn't have it. Then there was one particular line which, from there on, I was like, "Okay, I know how I want to play this character." See more »

Trivia:

The producers of American Pie (1999) originally wanted her to play the role of Heather, but she wanted to play the role of Michelle because she thought it was funnier. See more »
