On separating her work life from her private life:
"I was never the kind of girl who said, 'One day, I am going to be a beautiful bride, and I am going to have a family.' I wanted to work and support myself and make my parents proud. All I did was work. I did three or four films a year, and felt like I was on a treadmill. Finally I said, 'Nothing is exciting to me anymore.' So I took six months off, which turned into a year, and said 'God, I don't miss it.' That's when all kinds of interesting things crossed my path."
But really, after working on "Speed" and "Speed 2: Cruise Control," how could anything seem exciting anymore?
