"'If the only three films I made were "Wayne's World", "Beverly Hillbillies" and "The Little Rascals", then I would probably have some guilt about a lack of originality and creativity... But you can't forget I also did these other things that were so weird I couldn't get a job in Hollywood for 20 years.'"

"She admits her appearance didn't help. 'I had every color hair. I had the weirdest clothes. I was freaky visually. It changed for me when somebody said 'Do you really need all that attention?' And I went 'oh.'... Once I figured it out I didn't need it anymore.... I enjoy life so much more fadinging into the crowd.'"

-- From "Penelope Spheeris' Wayward Road to 'Rascals'" by Susan Spillman, "USA Today", August 25, 1994.
