Personal Quote:

You don't necessarily always want to be with someone who works in your business. It takes a certain kind of couple that are both actors to be able to make it, and it takes a certain kind of ego and lack of competition and ability to really sustain a relationship while you're spending a lot of time apart. I'm with a cinematographer. He's very stable, and I'm highly neurotic - so it works. See more »

Trivia:

Her paternal grandparents were Greek, and the family's surname was originally "Pisperikos". Her mother's family had British Isles ancestry. See more »
