“Stanley had to coax me into some of the sexuality in the film in the beginning, but we shot things that were a lot more extreme that didn’t end up in the movie. I did feel safe — I never felt it was exploitive (sic) or unintelligent. He was very different with women than he was with men. He has daughters, so he was very paternal with me.”

I never played a role I really regretted but sheesh, it was a thin line deciding which plays to audition for, that could require this sort of thing. Two friends of mine were in community theatre productions of Equus. They were in body stocking on stage at age 16. In retrospect, who the %^&(! cast them at that age should have been shot. At the time, I thought it was just edgy. Sigh.

    And I’ll get you for that tag, if it’s the last thing I do.
