Personal Quotes (3)

[About Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers (1988)] It was my first movie, so I was more excited about that--just being an actress, never mind being in a horror movie. At that time I wasn't even a horror movie fan. I did "Halloween 4" and Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers (1989) back to back, and I decided that horror movies were all I wanted to do for the rest of my life. It was going to be my thing.
[on her favorite meal to cook] I'm Jewish, and I always loved to cook my grandma's food- like brisket. I'm not someone who's religious, but for me, religion is family... So every time I cook a brisket, the smell of the meat in my house reminds me of being a little girl...
[about Christopher Pettiet] I had the biggest crush on Christopher. I would do anything to be with him, to kiss him, but he was in love with Christina, so it was really hard. I remember when we wrapped, I gave Christopher a surfing book as a present and wrote something sappy inside, like, 'You'll call me when I'm 18' or something ridiculous like that. We ended up going out on a couple of dates right before he passed away when we were in our twenties. I randomly ran into him and we reconnected and I was like, 'Oh my god, I can't believe this is happening.
