Personal Quote:

"It was different. Tom Cruise was lovely to me, but there were many discussions about his height in relation to Brad Pitt's. There are always vanity concerns" [on working on Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles (1994)]. See more »


She had a budget of $2 million to use to work on The Aviator (2004). See more »


Frequently works with Martin Scorsese since she made the costumes from Gangs of New York (2002).
