Ever since those reviews for Showgirls, it's like I was that woman in The Scarlet Letter. Except that instead of having to wear the letter A for adulteress, I was condemned to wear an S for showgirl.
The First Wives Club gave me a certain level of confidence. Because I was working with these three women – Goldie Hawn, Bette Midler and Diane Keaton – who as women have been through every high and low. Goldie especially took me under her wing and was really supportive. She told me, "I don't like the way you were directed in that movie, (Showgirls) but there's something there that you can't deny. So you just keep doing what you're doing and someone will get it, and someone will show the real you, and not just some idea of you".
(on making Roger Dodger) I really loved it. On the set, it was like being part of a real family. Everybody was there because they wanted to be and not because of some paycheck – there were no dressing rooms or big trailers; you'd get ready in a bathroom. Here's this $2-million movie that could have gone nowhere or everywhere. But it's one of the most special experiences that I've ever had. I want more similar experiences. I'm not "Showgirl" – that's the point!
I had to work out where I was going, what type of films I wanted to make. For that reason, I decided to choose independent productions, less important roles, and I tried theater, too.
I love what I do so much, and even with the highs and lows of the business, my love for what I do is my salvation, always. It's always exciting that way.
