I don’t really say much in the film. Mostly I watched light saber battle scenes and did grunts and growls while George Lucas watched from the couch, I got a bit carried away and pretended I had a light saber — I was waving my arms about. On recording the voice of Darth Maul

I had to come up with a scary voice which could be attributed to a younger villain. Basically I used my own voice with a kind of Marlboro huskiness thrown in. On recording the voice of Darth Maul

I was trying to exude this coolness, but I kept tripping over things – inside I was nearly having a heart attack…I did my impression of Darth Vader for [George Lucas] and he laughed. On recording the voice of Darth Maul

I’m a natural blonde. But when I started acting, I would go to auditions and they didn’t know where to put me because I was voluptuous and had the accent–but I had blonde hair. It was ignorance: they thought every Latin person looks like Salma Hayek.

If you see me without mascara, my eyelashes are completely blonde, I’m very, very fair-skinned.

My father told me if I did anything artistic, I would look like a hooker. I told him, “With these huge boobs that I inherited from your mother, I already look like a hooker!”.

[on turning down the controversial role of Charlotte Bless in The Paperboy (2012)]: It was a fun role. I was so glad that I didn’t have to pee in anyone’s face, though. I was glad it was not me. For [Nicole Kidman], that’s nothing. For me, it would have been three weeks of stress. How am I going to pee in there?
[on her discomfort with her breasts at age 13]: I wanted surgery. I told my mom, “As soon as I’m older, please take these boobs away.” She said, “Sofia, shut up. When you’re 18, it will be different.” I was like “Why would I want these huge boobs?”. I’m a 34DD. It’s hard to dress. No matter what I wear, I look like a stripper.

Born: October 25, 1969 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Married to:
Jason Jones (13 October 2001 – present) (3 children)

[on adjusting to life in New York:] My apartment is the equivalent of one room in my Toronto home. Now I understand why New Yorkers are on the streets at all hours. People don’t want to stay inside for fear they’ll go crazy. I’ve also found television remotes to be an afterthought here. I don’t even have to get up from the couch to change channels. [September 29, 2003]

[on working with her husband Jason Jones on television productions] We met each other working in a children’s-theatre troupe and have continued to work together for almost twenty years. He’s good at pushing comedy beyond my comfort zone, and I’m good at reining him in. Having children helps because they do not care about our work at all.
