On Cocktail (1988) If I'd known that it was just going to be about these guys throwing drinks around, then I might have had some second thoughts . . .
I may look like the girl next door, but you wouldn't want to live next door to me.
[on acting] The darker, more complex and emotional the part is, the easier it is for me. But I don't take any of that stuff home with me at the end of the day.
I don't have high expectations anymore. Maybe they've just been beaten out of me.
After Leaving Las Vegas I did assume that things would get a lot easier than they've been. But it's just been a mirror of the way my career's been from the beginning, so for it to have changed would have been strange. My career has never been perfect.
Every experience makes you grow.
It took a lot to get attention in my family. No wonder I'm an actress.
Everyone at 'CSI' has been so great to work with, and so great in terms of scheduling. There's a real feeling of family on that set... I've grown to have so much respect for the cast and crew - they're been together so many years and still care about the show and each other.
