There were three of us to 23 boys, and I was a ballerina, you can just imagine how I got treated.

  • Diane is a great artist

    She has that rare quality of not being so self aware when shes playing. As a former model this is quite remarkable. A very intelligent artist, definately one with a spiritual understanding.

    Great actress. Though her filmography is not among the greatest and most varied, I must say that I am very surprised with the so much glamour she has managed to gain with so little movies. I really like her sytle and simply I think that she is one of the best actresses around, and she will sure become one great actress in the future.
