>BACK TO LAS VEGAS

LEAVING LAS VEGAS WAS 17 YEARS AGO. NOW YOU’RE BACK THERE!

I know. It’s a step up. I was a hooker, now I’m a CSI. I got my degree and everything.

DO ALL THE BLOOD AND GUTS ON-SET MAKE YOU SQUEAMISH?

I have a good stomach for it. [When I went] to the L.A. county coroner’s office, I saw hundreds of decomposing bodies. Seeing death up close is horrific but also so dramatic you can’t help but be stimulated by it.

YOUR NEW CHARACTER JULIE FINLAY JUST UNDERWENT ANGER MANAGEMENT. WHAT MAKES YOU MAD?

I’m definitely a bad road rager. I curse a lot in the car; my kids [Miles, 14, Stella, 10, and Agnes, 5] are always horrified by what comes out of my mouth. I hate it when people drive timidly!

WHAT DO YOU GET RECOGNIZED FOR THE MOST?

All those movies from the ’80s, like Adventures in Babysitting and Cocktail. [Fans] will say, “I had such a crush on you when I was 7. I wanted you to be my babysitter.” Now they’re in their 30s, and I feel so old!
