Everybody sort of questioned why we get married on New Year's Day, and of course, the avid sports fans wouldn't come, because they had to watch the Rose Bowl or whatever that is on that day.

Is your remarkably sexist drivel intentional, or just some horrible mistake?

Being a part of "As Good as It Gets" was a great job for me. It was fun taking a bit of a break from playing Lisa Simpson and doing real actual live-action camera work. I enjoyed having the honor of working with Jack Nicholson, Helen Hunt, Cuba Gooding Jr. and Greg Kinnear. And especially that cute little dog. Overall, I enjoyed working on the film, and I wish I at least got an Oscar nomination.
In my dreams, I was Rita Hayworth, Kim Basinger. I just wanted to be that long, tall drink of water with flowing blond hair and large blue eyes and cheekbones you could actually see - you know, be that. And I wasn't, so I hated myself.

I got weary of putting so much energy into hating myself".
It's usually character stuff that I'm offered unless they want a real offbeat leading role. Most of the time, I'm everybody's best friend. Or their annoying friend. It's like the story of my life. I will never get to play the Cinderella roles.
Actually, you wouldn't believe how many people come up to me and say 'This is my fantasy: to be in bed with Lisa Simpson and have her say "Oh more, more!"' What is the matter with you people? This is sick! -- on the Australian talk show "Denton".
