Quotes

#Quote
1Everyone says you should get a photo taken of yourself while you're pregnant. I've got a film [War of the Worlds (2005)]. It'll be nice for my daughter, too, to look at one day. She was in it.
2[When asked about her worst memory of being involved in the Lord of the Rings trilogy] "When we were doing reshoots, we spent a few days doing the scene where I'm fighting the Witch-King. It was hard coming back after a couple of years away and not being as fit as I had been then."
3I'm so fair that I didn't go in the sun as a child. When all my friends were on the beach, I was going to ballet. The teachers there didn't like you going in the sun, so I never did.
