One man could change the world. This man gave me my first real shot as an actress by writing me into the sci-fi film, "Riddick," after I was called back for a different role. If you know the biz, you know how much of a compliment that is to your talent. Hardly ever happens. But it's also how he got his start too ("Saving Private Ryan"). It restored my confidence so many years after studying theater in college. That's why I've said he is my angel. There are so few people I share a genuine connection with in this biz, and I'm proud to say Vin is one of them. Happy Birthday @vindiesel!! And thank you for every bit of knowledge you've imparted upon me these past few years. My third year celebrating with you and hope to celebrate many many more. #family
