Pam Grier and Marlee Matlin
Marlee Matlin (on the impact of The L Word on the image of the lesbian community): "It just highlights the fact that they’re hot! It’s funny because sometimes my friends overhear a conversation where they’re talking about The L Word and how hot I am. And it’s got to be flattering, and I’ve got to accept it. It’s probably made me about as ‘hot’ as I could ever get."
