Amy (about her nude scene in NYPD Blue): I was very surprised how controversial it was, with entire cities not running it... especially because I knew the scenes weren't gratuitous.
Amy: I know for me, a lot of my 20s was about going off and proving that I wasn't like my mother. I was so different, I wasn't going to do anything like her. And then, we all know, you fall flat on your face, because you're exactly like your parents.
Amy (about Judging Amy): In court I am completely at ease. And that's just because I'm imitating my mother.
Amy (about producing Judging Amy): I do find it's a very different part of my brain that works. Producing is the bird's-eye-view, the big picture, while acting is purely moment-to-moment. "It helps cut down on the paranoia that actors usually feel that things are going on they don't know about. It's about information, when I don't have information, I can go into a paranoid, grouchy place, you can kind of breathe easier.
Amy: (about co-starring in "Daylight" with Sylvester Stallone) It may be contradictory on the surface, but that's closer to who I like to think I am. It could be due to my traditional upbringing or my stage background, but if there's a choice between playing stereotypical female roles or hitching my wagon to a big male star to get a really fun, strong character, there's no contest.
Amy: People always talk about how they don't like shooting love scenes. I really don't mind it. I don't know what that says about me.
Amy: When people get upset you know something is happening. But why do something if you're not going to touch a nerve?
