Not yet famous but unforgettably alluring. Noticed by chance when she was a DJ at Gwenyth Paltrow's birthday bash, now Sannyn Sossamon is in Venice to present "Road to Nowhere"
The legend in Hollywood would like her to be dj-ing for Gwyneth Paltrow's b'day one night, and cast in the super hot movie A Knight's Tale, with the young Heath Ledger.
"Yeah, sounds naive and cliche, but that's exactely what happened to me. I loved doing the club, scratching and mixing records, it gave me power over anyone. They would move to what I'd picked."
Beautiful, exoteric - part Hawaiian, Dutch, French, Irish, Philipino and German - aknowledge that beauty was the first stepping stone to her launch. After Knight's Tale and 40 Day & 40 Night, she was ready to take Hollywood by storm, when... she had a baby, Audio Science Clayton and went to work in a record music store.
"I wanted to learn everything that there was about music, so no regrets. I am grateful to be here at the Venice Film Festival in Venice. I was here before to visit a dear friend. The feeling you get from the city is incredible and strange at the same time. Don't know why really. Love it. I love to travel because I feel like I'm truly a part of this earth in a bigger sense. I understand my place on this earth more when im travelling. I feel stuck when I can only be in one home".
"About The Road to Nowhere, the producer of the film, Steven Gaydos came up to me when I was taking a lunch break from my acting class and told me about this film being directed by Monte Hellman. I read the script and met with Monte the next day. We both felt it was right from about minute 2. I have found it to be very difficult to deal with and understand the hollywood establishment. It always felt very forced to me".
"However, its a part of the bigger picture. I am getting better because it is worth being able to carry out my visions. I'm happier when I don't fight it. I have not worked very much since i had my son Audio, and not always by choice I must admit, so my mother/hollywood experience has been not very hollywood at all. The pressures however, of having an up-and-down job where you never know when your next paycheck is coming can be quite stressful for a mother. I've been lucky and have had help from my family and friends during the harder times."

Have you ever considered to ask help to surgery?
I've never ever considered getting a boob job! I'd feel like there were alien invaders in my chest. I am always trying to use different herbs and foods on my face to prevent wrinkles!
