Personal Quote:

[Kids today] think Grease (1978) is just one long music video. So they watch it over and over again the way we, when we were kids, we listened to albums.


In 2003, it was reported that she was a driving force behind a planned third Grease film. She was featured in the first two films as "Frenchie". See more »
