"I think in my 40s, right around the time of "The Turning Point," that I began to address myself more to the future," she says, explaining her coming to terms with aging. "See, I wasn't afraid of getting old, because I never had the problems the other actresses my age had. I was never a great beauty. I was never a sex symbol. I did, however, have great legs, because I was a dancer. But I didn't have that baggage. I wasn't interested in my stature as a star. Ever. I was just interested in good parts." --From "Pouring on the Old Charm" by Ryan Murphy in the DAILY NEWS, January 6, 1993

Received an honorary degree from Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC in 1999
