Quote: "It's not a normal voice. It doesn't fit into people's preconceptions about what a woman's voice should sound like. My mom doesn't think I have an unusual voice, though. I'm sure it's helped me get some roles. But Chasing Amy (1997), I almost didn't get. There was concern the voice would grate on some people -- which some critics said it did."
