I had so many freckles that my mother used to say that they were kisses from the angels. I still have them.
I love fast cars... and to go too fast in them.
That's what the holidays are for - for one person to tell the stories and another to dispute them. Isn't that the Irish way?
Coffee and smoking are the last great addictions.
I love children and I love men, but I can't commit to either for the rest of my life.
I've had Irish skin from the time I was a young girl.
But Tommy Lee Jones is just smooth. He's just the real deal. I'm captivated by him because there's so little of that in Hollywood, and he just embodies it.
And I think women have come a very, very long way, but they have a long way to go.
I've dated men my age, younger than me and older. The only difference is the young ones are quicker at taking out the garbage.
I remember doing the sex scene in Red Rock West. I had to kiss Nic Cage and then look like I was going down on him. And he couldn't do anything - he just had to lie there.
As soon as you get over caring what people think, you can have a nice time.
Being Irish was a big thing for me, particularly growing up in Chicago.
I spent every day just praying that I didn't look like a big dork on camera.
And while I might not always agree with the viewpoint I have to portray, because I play a district attorney, as an actress I can always tell myself that my character is trying to take the moral high ground.
And I don't believe that women can successfully have it all. I really don't.
But I know somebody who has a bedside urinal. How do I compete with that?
Everybody wants to solve everybody's problems.
Have I seen The Commitments? I was obsessed with that movie. I just watched it again about two weeks ago.
I am a very selfish person.
I had never watched a law show prior to being cast on The Practice.
