Despite her strict Catholic upbringing, Heather Graham has expressed belief in more New Age and Eastern beliefs. Heather’s parents are strictly Catholic and did not want her to take part in any film which dealt with sex.
Heather Graham and her parents are now estranged, perhaps due to her choice of roles.
“Boogie Nights was quite explicit and my parents were horrified. They didn’t really want to hear my point of view, and thought that, because I took the part, then I was like that in real life. It would be nice if I did have a good relationship with my family, and yes, part of me longs to have a mom and dad who love and accept me for who I am. But if they never do, it’s OK. I’ve learned to take care of myself.”
“Whenever I meet people who seem really sweet and unassuming, I kind of wonder about them.”
Heather Graham jokingly reacting to a question about her character, “I’m a nice Catholic girl, just like Madonna.”
