My friends always said that I should be a comedienne – I was named my class clown.
It hasn't been smooth or delightful every minute, there were lean years and rough years, but it's been exciting and good and I'm thrilled to be an actress and a singer and to have spent my life this way.
And he was going to give me a song, because I'm a singer and I wanted to sing in everything.
I work out, I go to pilates, I walk and I eat everything I can get my hands on.
I got more bands and went on the road and turn down more movies than you would believe.
He wasn't directing it, of course, so I didn't work with Hitchcock.
I was also the romantic lead in The Boston Strangler – I was the only one that lived to tell the story – so I called myself the romantic lead.
I didn't want to do it… I'd been trying to get out of TV for years!
I remember working with Rod, though, on Chrysler Hour. I was too young and dumb to know that I was supposed to be scared of anybody or anything – like getting fired or anything like that.
Well, it was the beginning of my film career. It was amazing to me that I got nominated for an Academy Award.
I was in group therapy for years but it wasn't the same thing. It was more about growing.
I had just had small parts in other films, and I'd worked with a lot of directors in TV.
I hope to have some more cracks at some wonderful roles before I go to the Great Beyond.
