She lost more than five pounds while filming.

Personal Quotes (1)

[Talking about her favorite scene in Dragonfly (2002)]: "My favorite scene was cut from the movie, but it's this beautiful stethoscope scene, where Joe and Emily are both lying in bed listening to the baby's heartbeat. It's just beautifully sensual in a beautifully full pregnant state, aesthetically feminine and loving, with two people totally connected. I also loved the scene when he's trying to convince her not to go; it established the fiery part of who she is, so committed to living this life that she's chosen".
