Personal Quote:

My greatest cross is that my face and body don't match my mind and soul. People expect me to be an ingénue, a baby doll, and they're terribly disappointed when they find I'm not.

Men, in Hollywood especially, don't like intelligent women.

Trivia:

Commited suicide at 34. The official cause of death was "a possible overdose of sleeping pills". See more »
