[On her character from The Hand that Rocks the Cradle]
Rebecca DeMornay: She was very freaky and disturbed in a way that was almost unpleasant to watch. I guess that means I succeeded in the character. What was surprising was how much the audience cared about Peyton's predicament initially, and then how, much it loved to hate her.
[On the actresses that inspired her]
Rebecca DeMornay: Vivien Leigh was a phenomenal actress, a very complicated woman, living on the edge of mental problems, haunted by demons and angels. And though I've never thought of myself like Marilyn Monroe, I was inspired by the tremendous risk she took--of being vulnerable.
