The actress admits she has found herself at a loss since filming her final scenes for US TV drama series ‘Lost’ in Hawaii but has only just realised the extent of her situation.
She said: “I did live in Hawaii and now I am essentially homeless. I’m a gypsy a bit, living out of my suitcase, and I’m unemployed.
“I was filling out a form at the dentist the other day and I realised when they said ‘Put your address and your occupation’ that I was homeless and unemployed.”
The brunette beauty admits she has always enjoyed moving from place to place as it allowed her the opportunity for reinvention.
She explained to US TV talk show host Jimmy Kimmel: “When I was a kid we moved a lot and then when I was in high school I stayed still for a long time.
“I must have gotten a bit of fever – whatever it was that makes you want to change – because I looked around me and saw people who were different to me and interesting, and I decided I wanted to try to be them.
“I would move towns – because you can’t change who you are when people know you already – and I would take on a new. I wouldn’t suddenly put on 50lbs and pretend I was a man.”
