Famke Janssen Quotes
I think acting is just like that. There is something childish and fun about it.

I don't even like talking about dating. It's like having a stamp on your forehead: "I'm available and I'm looking".

I love darkness. I am attracted to the dark side of life! I thought it was really interesting that Jean Grey went through some changes in this film. - About her character's change in X2: X-Men United
