[1996, on Dangerous Liaisons (1988)] We filmed in France and I had given birth to Annie seven weeks before we started preparing for the film. For the first time in my life, I had these great breasts. It’ll never happen again, but for one brief, shining season, I had the most incredible breasts. James Acheson, the costume designer, who won the Oscar this year for Restoration (1995), did the costumes, and I just loved it because they pushed my breasts up and made me have cleavage. I guess I should be saying something more intellectual about the film, but I just remembered how great it felt to have those breasts.

[1996, on Fatal Attraction (1987)] The original ending was a gorgeous piece of film noir. She kills herself, but makes sure that his prints are all over the knife, and he gets arrested. He knows he didn’t do it, but he’s going to jail anyway. But audiences wanted some kind of cathartic ending, so we went back months later and shot the ending that’s in the movie now.
When I hear that somebody’s difficult, I think, Oh, I can’t wait to work with them.

Celebrity is death – celebrity – that’s the worst thing that can happen to an actor.
