Interesting:

  • Liv cut her hair for the role, but don't worry - it grew up again!


  • Liv on Altman: "I was almost over the moon about it, He's just amazing to work with. It was an incredibly liberating experience for me with the way he directs and the confidence he gives you. What's so disheartening is how much he's had to struggle (to make movies). The fact that Robert Altman can't get a movie made at a studio is just unbearable to me. Some hot young video director can get a $30 million movie made and he can't ? I think it's a crime"
