The day of the wedding went like these things generally do, full of anxious moments interspersed with black comedy.
I thought I was attractive when I shot ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding.’ Studio executives and movie reviewers let me know I had a confidence in my looks that was not shared by them.
I got my first big paycheck for ‘My Best Friend’s Wedding.’ This was in the days when you actually did get paid to have a supporting role. It just doesn’t happen like that anymore, but this was in the ’90s. It was the golden age!
When it’s over, I want to say: all my life I was a bride married to amazement. I was the bridegroom, taking the world into my arms.
