HAHAHA! Because it's such a terrible movie! LOL!

The best thing that came out of it was I met Justin Chatwin, who's become one of my greatest partners in life, and I wouldn't have given up that experience for the world.

We were stuck in Mexico, in Durango, for MONTHS and MONTHS. And my only entertainment would be going to the local Wal-Mart, getting drunk, and buying DVDs of any American show i could find. The only one i could find was Nip/Tuck. So I watched all of it while filming DRAGONBALL in Mexico. Thank God Justin was there to keep me sane.

But I wouldn't call it a regret I made the movie. It's just not very good. I don't really regret any career choice I've made. I've made them all and learned from all those decisions. Even if they were mistakes, or regrets, I call them "choices" and make different ones in the future.

How about a drink first?

Are you kidding? I was a WRECK. I was completely panicked after getting the job. I was so nervous I'd mess it up for the fans and never be able to compare to SB. That said, I think I made it my own and I'm really proud of it :)

Yes. It changed my perspective on female beauty, because Fiona isn't a very glamorous character, yet most fans see her as really sexy, so to play a woman on TV who doesn't wear a lot of makeup or fancy clothes, and to have that seen as a desirable woman is a really positive thing.

Also we get to go into all of these neighborhoods in Chicago that are so different from how i grew up in NYC, and the West Side and the South Side, which are lower-income neighborhoods that have a lot of violence in them - the people that we meet in those homes are remarkably gregarious, kind, fun, welcoming, warm... so it's very different than I might have thought of "The South Side" or "The West Side" before I went there.

Yes. This year, I was doing a scene with Jeremy Allen White, who plays Lip, and in the scene, his character and my character are trying to remove my ankle-monitor that I got while I was in prison, and while filming the scene, Jeremy realized that I hadn't shaved my legs, so he decided to use the pliers that were a prop in the scene to individually remove my leg hair.
