Referring to the roles she typically plays in Hollywood, Miller echoes the feelings of many actresses when she notes, "I'm the subplot. I'm the one they come home to. I don't mind it, but I'm never really part of the action." --From Premiere, March 1990.

"She has a quality that reminds me of some old-time movie stars--very funny and classy and sexy without the sex; it's kind of the one-foot-on-the-floor concept." --Miller's friend musician Kelly Coleman (daughter of actor Dabney Coleman), quoted in Premiere, September 1991.

"He brought out a certain womanliness, a sexuality, a passion in me. I think I always knew I had it in me, but he brought out a real fire." --Miller commenting on her relationship with actor Al Pacino, to People, December 6, 1993.

"I look for characters with complexity, with a story of their own, I am not interested in playing any sex object to a male character." --Miller on how she chooses a role, quoted in New York Newsday, November 17, 1993.

"I always want to play a woman who, one way or another, is a strong character, who has dimension, who isn't stereotyped, and who has something to do, other than being the girlfriend or the wife." --quoted in Daily News, October 13, 1997.
