I hopped off the plane at LAX with a dream and my cardigan. Welcome to the land of fame excess - am I going to fit in? I jump into the cab, here I am for the first time, I look to the right and I see the Hollywood sign.
[Regarding Flashdance-related fame] It was very clear to me that it’s not real. It’s not real…I was never the little girl who thought I wanted to be famous. My first real quest that I can recall…other than wanting to be a jockey…was trying to figure out who or what God was. That really drove me for quite some time…I had a notion that there was this mystery that I didn’t really know anything about, and I wanted to try to figure it out….so fame was not my driving force.jennifer beals
