    Wrote the autobiography 'My Nine Lives' (2006)
    She was expelled from Toowoomba boarding school and noted, 'I was quite out of hand. In schools like that, I don't think they expect that girls are going to behave in such an outrageous fashion.'
    She described her first marriage, to Andrea Volpe, as 'a Romeo and Juliet thing,' then added, 'I actually think Romeo and Juliet would have had a dreadful marriage.'
    She had a nervous breakdown and attempted suicide.
    After she claimed Connery had cut their son Jason out of his will (2008), Sean called her 'insane' and Jason called her statements 'outrageous and hurtful lies and fabrications.'
    She said her parents, who were both doctors, did not take her acting career seriously 'until I started earning more money than they were.'
    She was nominated for a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for 'Tom Jones.'
    Connery allegedly punched her in the face after she danced a flamenco with another man.
    She built her own outdoor theater, Karnak, in the rainforest of Queensland.
