In New York, there's more of a feeling of striving for perfection, which is admirable. I grew from being a Long Island girl, but at the same time I didn't forget my roots and I didn't forget the people around me. See more »

Trivia:

Appeared in Better Off Dead... (1985) (as the French foreign exchange student) that happened to have a character named Jenny Meyer. Diane would later play a character named Jenny Meyers in Lovechild (2013). See more »
