Personal Quote:

We can make movies like There's Something About Mary (1998), using semen as hair gel, and it's a huge hit - but to show a bloody tampon is considered shocking. I think that says a lot about our culture's attitude towards women and towards female sexuality. See more »

Trivia:

Wrote a play called "Five Women Wearing the Same Dress." It is about bridesmaids avoiding a wedding reception in Knoxville, Tennessee. See more »
