When asked about how her role as Griselda in God’s Little Acre was similar to her own life, she said, “[Griselda] only seems sexy because she looks sexy and maybe feels that way. But…hers is a tragic story and one I know too well. Men just can’t keep their hands off Griselda, because that’s the way she affects them every time a man sees her he tries to kiss her and rough her up…. Sex is a part of her, but is really not her.”

Aided by his Father (Burt Young), and his family, he embarks on a personal journey that will forever change him.”
