Born: October 8, 1949 in Manhattan, New York City, New York, USA

Married to: Jim Simpson (1 October 1984 – present) (1 child)

I’ve lost a lot of roles because of my height. I’m 6 feet 3 inches in heels. Producers are short and I was never their sexual fantasy. As for actors, if I enter a room and an actor stands up then immediately gets self-conscious and sits back down, I hear myself saying, “This job isn’t for me.” I once offered to paint my shoes on my bare feet to get one part because it made me appear shorter.
