ENTERTAINMENT AS A WAY OF LIFE
January / February 1994

Jason Scott Lee, the star of Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story and the upcoming South Seas saga Rapa Nui, talks about the spiritual healing powers of Hawaii, demonstrates martial arts technique to young toughs on the street in London, and massages our reporter's twisted neck.
As beautiful as she is outspoken, the actress--who made her mark in Jungle Fever, Boomerang and TV's "Queen"--lets fly on everything from making The Flintstones and her career advice for Spike Lee, to competing for roles with Winona, Julia and Marisa, and her marriage to Atlanta Braves ball player David Justice.
