My Favorite Things
ITEM OF CLOTHING
"Jeans. I have a pair I've loved for years, but I still buy new ones all the time. In the morning, I just take a shower and put on a warm sweatshirt and jeans. As an actress, when you show up for work, all you have to be is clean and not nude."
ROOM IN YOUR HOME
"My tearoom-it hardly ever gets used, but it's a room I created entirely for myself. Everything in there, from the marble tile to the hand-painted walls to the furniture, is exactly how I imagined it."
My grandma taught me how to knit when I was a little girl, but I didn't do it for most of my life. Then one summer I went with my family to Maine, and this farm had all these beautiful little lambs on it. They were selling the yarn, so I bought some and have been knitting ever since."
"'Respect' by Aretha Franklin. I think the title pretty much says it all!"
GIFT YOU'VE RECEIVED
"A photo album my husband [actor/director Jonathan Frakes] gave me for our 15th wedding anniversary, a few years ago. Somehow he found stuff going back to my 25th birthday party, all the way up to the present. It let me know I am so loved."
