"I was in a career [modeling] where the women make ten times the money the men do. I'd be in an Armani gown and there would be eight guys as props, and I'd be asked, 'Which one do you want on your arm?' It was interesting because in life it's the other way for women. Subsequently, I've felt empowered by that. I think it takes someone really grounded to model and not feel like last week's barbecue. You're meat. People look at your legs and inspect your teeth. It's like the 4-H show and you're one of the cows."---Kelly Lynch to DETAILS, December 1991.
"Since her breakthrough in "Drugstore Cowboy" in 1989, Lynch has been able to turn DOWN choice parts--including the million dollar role in "Basic Instinct" that eventually went to Sharon Stone."
"`It wasn't sexy,' she says of the controversial Joe Eszterhaus script. `In order for me to be sexy (on screen), it has to be sexy to me. I thought it was something that teen-age guys were going to like.'" --From "Kelly Prefers Brains" by Matthew Flamm, NEW YORK POST, May 3, 1993.
