1) I was wondering how you got the role in Christine. What actresses ,if any, were you up against?
I do not know any of the actresses who also auditioned for the role of Lee in Christine, except Kelly Preston, who was instead cast in the role of the Roseanne, the beautiful classmate who has an unrequited crush on John Stockwell’s character, Dennis.
I auditioned for the role and I recall meeting John Carpenter in an office on Ventura Blvd in Studio City. I cannot recall the scene I read for him but when they called me back for the final audition, the producer told my agent that I should R... Read more

1) Hi Alexandra,
I am currently writing a paper on the recent relaxation of China’s One-Child policy and how it might impact the gender gap. I read an article you wrote on Huffington Post where you stated you supported a one-child per family ideal, but you did not like the coercive nature of this policy. Before the policy was put into place, China did try voluntary programs but they did not produce big enough/the desired results. My question for you is, do you believe that if China resorted to a voluntary program, would it be enough to keep the population from booming? Also, if the government continues to promot... Read more
One of the times I was a guest on Bill Maher’s tv show Politically Incorrect and Oliver North sneeringly called me a tree hugger. I wish I had used one of my favorite lines Denzel Washington said in The Siege: “You are too stupid to know that’s a compliment”, but I was not that quick.
Here’s to you, Oliver:

Just a note to say hooray to all of you who bike to work, have been vegan for years and who live in Tiny Houses. You are an inspiration to me and I aspire to live as lovingly towards the earth as you do. All of you who tread more lightly than I on this planet help me strive to be a better eco-citizen myself.
A shout out to some environmental heroes in my own life: solar and EV pioneer Paul Scott, environmentalist extraordinaire Ed Begley, longtime animal defender Jonathan Paul (my brother) and activist/artist/ agitator Peter Kreitler (who was also my cohost on EarthTalk Today). And my mom, Sarah Paul, who is the ... Read more
1) Hi, Alexandra,
I am interested in knowing which commodities you regularly buy used (to be honest, I have to smile at the irony that the Duggar family also promotes, “Buy used and save the difference.”) In our family of 6 (all children adopted), we shop almost exclusively for gently used clothing, shoes, and home items at resale stores. We also buy our vehicles used. Do you? Do you have close friends who exclusively purchased used vehicles? And what about your home? Did you build it, or did you purchase a pre-existing home? Thanks in advance.
How wonderful that all your children are adopte... Read more
