Notes

Has struggled with bulimia since a teenager

"She's a great little girl," Smith says of her character. "Some people call her the moral compass, which sort of implies maybe that the family is amoral, but I don't believe that's true. I just think they're misguided, and trying to keep too many plates in the air. And Lisa has this uncanny ability to focus."---Smith on her Character Lisa Simpson to CNN.com April 06, 2004
