I left my agents because they were focusing on television.

  • An angel .

    A beautiful and extremly talented actres . She has played in a lot of great movies and one of her best roles was in the departed where she starred next to Mat Damon and Jack Nickolson and still shined like she was the lead . I'll just say this : a movie where she has a role is always wourth watching just so you can see her in a diferent caracter bacause she has an amasing ability of transformation . Maybe she not a movie star but I think that's her advantage because people who have heard of her know her mostly by her work and that is the way it is supose to be.moreless
