* HiddenDepths: If anyone watches her musical roles, they'll find that her singing voice is lovely.
* 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.

* DefrostingIceQueen: In some of her films. ''Film/IAmSam'' for one, where she starts off as a pretentious bitch and becomes, well, much kinder in the end. Her role in ''Film/DarkShadows'' could be considered this too, as her attitude towards the protagonist becomes much warmer as the movie goes on. It was also attempted in ''Scarface''.
