1Ballet has always been how I defined myself - even as a child. It's never been just a thing to do.
2I've always loved to dance on stage. I've been doing ballet since I was five, and stage dancing since I was seven.
3[about the film Tadpole (2000)] It's more about who Oscar is that these women are falling in love with him than just his age. In that sense, it's a little more European than we're used to.
4(on her cameo in Celebrity (1998)) He offered me the hooker part with a great deal of respect. He wrote me, "Please don't be offended". That didn't offend me. I would do pretty much anything for him.
5[about her work] I know when I'm bad, I know when I'm good, and I know when I'm everything in between. I don't have any delusions of grandeur or delusions of failure. In terms of my work, I've got a pretty cold honest eye.
6If you have to ask how to be sexy after 40, you probably can't do it.
7In a really well-written musical, you talk until you just can't talk anymore, you're going to have to sing. And when you're just so full you can't sing anymore, then you have to dance. It's a natural progression.

9She claims the role of the hooker teaching Judy Davis how to perform oral sex on a banana in Woody Allen's Celebrity (1998) was written specifically for her.
10After Cheers (1982) went off the air, she got a lot of offers from TV and film essentially asking her to pretty much play the same character. She was offered a regular role as Lilith on the Cheers (1982) spin-off, Frasier (1993) but she turned it down so she could go back to Broadway. She did guests spots on the show instead.
