[on Stanley Kubrick
's Aryan Papers] I don't regret what happened. I still feel it as a huge compliment. It was a wonderful experience. The ending was very painful. There was a huge future... then it felt like a balloon was suddenly burst. Then, that's it. You have to go on. Not for the first time in my life, I realized that personal happiness has nothing to do with success.
Was cast as the lead character of Tania in Stanley Kubrick
's Aryan Papers, a Holocaust film based on the novel Wartime Lies by Louis Begley
. The project was only weeks from production in Slovakia when Kubrick canceled it, not wanting it to come out after Schindler's List
(1993) which had just been released. He had a similar experience with Full Metal Jacket
(1987) which came out just after Platoon
