She is known for her role as Rita in Mulholland Drive.
"In private, I'm a hippie who follows Buddhism, does yoga, meditates and loves to dance wildly. But when I'm on show, I become a different person. Some actors do not understand that difference, and resent it. I say, 'Let them give you the jewels, go around with your bodyguard, let them dress you. If you are promoting a film, don't be afraid of glamor.'"
Rita is the mysterious and helpless apparent victim, a classic femme fatale with her dark, strikingly beautiful appearance. She serves as the object of desire, directly oppositional to Betty's bright self-assuredness.
Mulholland Drive is a 2001 American neo-noir psychological thriller written and directed by David Lynch, starring Justin Theroux, Naomi Watts, and Laura Harring.
