Her level of stardom increased when she was cast in the film, "Groundhog Day" (1993) followed by another highly successful film role in, "Four Weddings and a Funeral" (1994). 
Throughout her lifetime she has married twice.  Her first husband was Paul Qualley whom she wed in 1986 and they and three children before this marriage came to an end in 1999.  She then married Rhett DeCamp Hartzog in 2001 but this marriage also ended in 2004.
