She relocated to Los Angeles from her native British Columbia in the 1980s when she first started modelling and now divides her time between the Californian city and Vancouver Island.
"In Los Angeles I feel like I'm playing a character. I'm going here and there and dealing with things that aren't typical anywhere else. "At home I feel completely relaxed. My hair's in a ponytail. I have my dad's flannel shirt on and I'm running around. It's great. I am so happy that I'm from there.
"I think people who are from Los Angeles don't always know what else is going on. That's why I get involved in all these other things, because I know Los Angeles is not real," she added. The 44-year-old has two children - Brandon (15) and Dylan (14) - from her marriage to rock drummer Tommy Lee.
