[regarding the table read for The Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle (2000)] "I walked in the door and there was June Foray. She did the original voice of Natasha and I thought, 'Oh good, they have June here to make me look like an idiot.' I asked June if she could read a couple of lines for me, and she did, she was so gracious. So I got the accent down, the Russian accent, for which I lowered my voice."
Beauty and youth can stay inside, but it doesn't outside.
That's a really good question - what is it like living with a writer? I guess it depends on the writer. You know what? They live in a fantasy world a lot of the time. My husband lives in a fantasy world. It's really hard for him to be in the world, because if his head isn't in a script, I guess to write what he does, he has to sort of twist the world a little bit and live in a fantasy. And I think he doesn't live in reality - in my reality, let's put it that way. He's much more "Everything's fine fine fine and everything's good good good," and I'm like, "What, are you nuts? Everything's rotten and sucks."
All of us are broken - some of us more than others. It might be a nurturing, mother thing. I do think there is that, "Oh my God, you're hurting. I know what that feels like and I'd like to be there and support you in that."
On her nude scenes in The Thomas Crown Affair (1999): "It never really dawned on me that, gee, I'm 45 and I'm taking off my clothes. For me it was a matter of living inside the character."
