Personal Quote:

I really like working with actors. My wars are never with actors. People say I think like a director, but I wouldn't want to be one. I don't want anybody else to boss me, but I don't want to boss anybody else, either. I just don't like being controlled. See more »

Trivia:

She moved, with her family, to Toronto, Canada, when she was age 13. See more »
