New York's my home. Born and raised. I'm a New Yorker to the bone.
— Vanessa Ferlito
Quentin Tarantino is a genius. I want to do every single film with him.
The funny thing is I'm not even Latin. I was constantly getting Latin roles, and I was like, I even was nominated for an award, and I was like, 'Let them know at the NAACP, the first white woman. Let them know I'm totally grateful, but I'm not Latin. I can't do that. I play Latin.'
I was a club kid. I was on the cover of 'New York' magazine and discovered like that.
The first thing I went out for was 'The Sopranos' and I got it, so that's how it happened. I hate to say it like that because I wait for calls now.
You have to really love women in order to really just have a respect for women and love them. No man - I don't care what kind of man it is, how feminine he is - they never could understand what we go through as far as physically and mentally.
I do yoga; I'm pretty dedicated.
I'm still Vanessa from the neighborhood. My parents own the shop, and I'm there all the time, that I worked in when I was a teenager. I have a child from my childhood sweetheart.
I always get scared. I can't read scripts. I'm scared, scary movies and stuff.
Kurt Russell is so dreamy. Plus, he's great to work with, really respectful.
I have to be honest - I don't love guns.
I torture my mother with all my problems, that poor woman.
You know, I still live in my neighborhood. I live in Brooklyn and the same neighborhood, so I don't really get star treatment like that. I'm still Vanessa from the neighborhood.
