* CareerResurrection: Got the role in ''Film/{{Scarface|1983}}'', despite ''Film/{{Grease 2}}''.
** She took some time off in the early 2000's to raise her children and just enjoy motherhood. She made a triumphant return to acting in 2007, with roles in ''Film/{{Stardust}}'' and ''Film/{{Hairspray}}''.



* DoingItForTheArt: Once famously said she would act for free, the money just being compensation for being in the public eye.



* HollywoodHomely: In ''Frankie & Johnny'' where she's just given greasy hair. It should be said that the role was played by Kathy Bates originally on the stage. Subverted in ''I Could Never Be Your Woman'' where she thinks she's this but it's really IAmNotPretty.



* OldShame: Considers several of her films (specifically ''Film/{{Grease 2}}'', ''A Thousand Acres'', and ''Film/ICouldNeverBeYourWoman'' to be disappointments. She has also gone on record stating that as a rule she only watches her films once, and that is it. Averted with ''One Fine Day'', which didn't do well but she believes it's a good movie nonetheless.



* StarDerailingRole: ''Film/{{Grease 2}}'' infamously almost cost her a role in ''Film/{{Scarface|1983}}''.
* ThoseTwoActors: Did three films with Robert De Niro - ''Stardust'', ''New Year's Eve'' and ''Film/TheFamily''. She joked that she was excited to work with him the first two times...only to discover they had no scenes together.

* KickTheWrongDog: Once (in RealLife) kicked her car in frustration after she couldn't unlock the door. She was very embarrassed when the ''real'' owner came along and she realized it was a lookalike car.
