. "I decided to appear in" double miscalculation "because my role here is different from those generally offered to women in Hollywood
. And in "Double miscalculation" and "Kiss the Girls" I could not afford to be very different, and not just play the "good girl" or "sad girl". And then the theme itself revenge brings great energy charge.

Even worse she was given a scene where she should lie in a closed coffin, where her husband put his (played by Bruce Greenwood): "I cried all day and then.

In spite of everything, . they had to for the sake of promotion for the TV series to go on talk shows and give interviews: "I went on the Oprah Winfrey, . to help the mother promoutirovat film and even agreed to be in it "voice-overs", . because she knew - for my mother is very important,
. And when I had something to embellish or lie, I imagine myself saying: "The reward for this is waiting for you in heaven."
