SHE SAID

"European films were what it was about for me - the sensations I needed, the depth, the storytelling, the characters, the directors, and the freedom that you can't really find in American films."

"One of the reasons I don't see eye to eye with Women's Lib is that women have it all on a plate if only they knew it. They don't have to be pretty either. "

• "I did that film just so I could kiss Robert Redford." ( talking about "Spy Game")
