Quote: "I'm a terrible liar... I guess you become good at lying. But honestly, I'm really bad at lying. The entire appearance was so hush hush.

Quote: "I've been asked many times to come in wearing flats on auditions and then when I do they say, 'You didn't get the part, you were too tall!'" Actress Famke Janssen reveals her height has cost her leading roles.

Quote: "I am nothing like the characters I play, but I know I look like I would be. Of course, when you're Meryl Streep or Daniel Day-Lewis, it's a different story, but most of us are not that lucky. It's not like I turn down those parts and opt for the alien creatures. It's what's offered to me." X-Men actress Famke Janssen wants to tackle more dramatic roles.
