Over the years, I've tried to better understand my earlier actions. Looking back, I wish I'd handled the situation with Polly better. I know my daughters have suffered, and I have tried to make up for it ever since. I also wish I'd known my father better. When I was younger, he'd warned me not to get married so young. But I sometimes think if only we had communicated more, if he had told me more about sex and love--maybe I would have had the tools to better deal with those intense feelings.
Only now, after years in therapy, am I starting to come to terms with who my father was to me. I don't know if you'd call it poetic justice, but ironically my recurring role on The Sopranos is that of a psychiatrist. --As told to Francine Russo
