Personal Quote:

[on Shanghai Knights (2003)] I only had a cough and spit role as a prostitute but they put my bit in the advert the last time it was on TV so I got 'oh, working with Owen Wilson are you?' I got a lot of ribbing about being the whore in Shanghai Knights. See more »

Trivia:

While starring in Dream Team (1997) early in her career, she posed in her underwear for a lad's mag, for which she did not get paid. She insisted in March 2007 she would not strip anymore as she was "too old" and was keen to now present a more "dignified" image. She commented that "it's too much like hard work to get your kit off. It's probably not a good idea at my age". See more »
