1) What have we seen you in (TV, movies, men’s magazines, etc.)?
Brooke in Anything Else; Kristen in Something’s Gotta Give; Tara in Stepford Wives.
2) What was your big break?
Anything Else. Getting to work with Woody Allen was a childhood dream come true.
3) Do you drink wine? If so, how often?
I love wine, especially a yummy bottle of red. I have a glass once or twice a week (and whenever there’s a great bottle around!)
4) How's your love life?
My love life is quiet.
5) Ever use wine or food to lure someone into bed? (Details, details!)
I should like to think it wouldn’t take bribery or drunkenness to have someone find me desirable.
6) What’s your idea of a romantic dinner?
A nice meal in a cozy little restaurant. Or grilling out under the stars. Both involve a lovely bottle (or bottles) of red and dark chocolate, naturally. And the right company.
7) What’s the most embarrassing food/drink-related experience you’ve had (and why)?
I was at a Vines and Jet concert a few months back and had drunk several glasses of red wine. I ended up wearing it on my white shirt and tripping into the lounge sofa at the after party. One of my most stellar moments. Not due entirely to being tipsy, mostly due to being a total klutz.
8) Ever drink wine right from the bottle? Through a straw? Outta someone’s navel?
Wine from a bottle, definitely; the straw was makeshift out of a piece of chocolate licorice; and to memory, not from a navel.
9) Would you be turned off by a screw cap on an expensive bottle of wine?
The only thing that turns me off is a bad bottle of wine. Screw caps and price don’t matter.
10) What projects are you working on now (and in the immediate future)?
Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid (released August 27, 2004); The Grudge (released Oct. 22, 2004).
