Michelle’s Personal Quotes:


"I still think people will find out that I'm really not very talented. I'm really not very good. It's all just been a big sham."

(On playing her part of Claire Spencer in What Lies Beneath)" I thought about Drew Barrymore in the first Scream - I mean, ultimately that movie was more funny than scary, but the opening sequence was quite terrifying, and she portrayed terror in a way I'd never seen an actress do."

[On wearing the Catwoman costume for the first time]: "I thought to myself 'I can't move, I can't breathe, I can't think. I'm unhappy. I can't act'."

(Speaking about her Childhood) "I wasn't a terribly feminine little girl. I never thought I was attractive to boys; I remember when the first boy liked me, I couldn't believe it. All the little girls with ringlets and crinoline dresses were the ones the boys liked."

"I'm a Taurus. To the bone. I'm very stubborn. I think I have common sense; I'm probably at times a bit tunnel-visioned, but I'm strong"
