Personal Quote:

The last thing I want to see at the movies is a version of my reality. I don't want to see art imitating life.

Trivia:

She declined to be interviewed on the Lord of the Rings DVDs because she wishes to remain private. There are no clips or pictures of her, whatsoever, on the DVD either, except for a brief appearance with Peter Jackson and Philippa Boyens as they accept the Oscar during the 2004 Awards. However, she does contribute an audio commentary. See more »
