It hasn't been smooth or delightful every minute, there were lean years and rough years, but it's been exciting and good and I'm thrilled to be an actress and a singer and to have spent my life this way.
I was always playing the hard-bitten drunk.
I wasn't a businesswoman, so I didn't know how to build a career.
I'm very close with Bob and his lovely, fabulous wife Catherine, too.
I got more bands and went on the road and turn down more movies than you would believe.
My friends always said that I should be a comedienne - I was named my class clown.
And he was going to give me a song, because I'm a singer and I wanted to sing in everything.
He wasn't directing it, of course, so I didn't work with Hitchcock.
I didn't want to do it... I'd been trying to get out of TV for years!
I had just had small parts in other films, and I'd worked with a lot of directors in TV.
I hope to have some more cracks at some wonderful roles before I go to the Great Beyond.
I was also the romantic lead in The Boston Strangler - I was the only one that lived to tell the story - so I called myself the romantic lead.
I was always telling everybody that I could be funny.
I was an idiot in terms of career-building, but I had a great time.
I was in group therapy for years but it wasn't the same thing. It was more about growing.
