The actress plays the lover of Annette Bening in the new epic ‘Running With Scissors’.

“I just did this film ‘Running With Scissors’ where I play a lesbian- finally. ‘The L Word’ wouldn’t have me, so thank God Annette Bening did. I play Annette Bening’s lover and she’s a speed freak and junkie and manic depressive. She paints her nails depending on her moods.”

‘Running With Scissors’ is a black comedy about an adult man looks back on his childhood with his bipolar and self-centered mother and will be released in theatres in 2006.
