Gaby Hoffmann was 7 years old when she played Karin Kinsella in the hit movie Field of Dreams. The actress spoke about how she got along with the cast members off-screen in a recent interview. She told Business Insider how on the set she experienced  “a lot of paternal energy.”

The star was asked if the energy applied to Kevin as well. “I didn’t feel paternal energy from Kevin Costner,” Gaby replied. She added, “We’ll leave it at that.” Kevin Costner played Ray Kinsella, Karin’s father in Field of Dreams.

After the field is built, ghosts of legendary baseball players start visiting it. One of the supernatural guests is “Shoeless Joe” Jackson played by Ray Liotta.

The actress admitted that she jokingly thought she had a crush on Ray back then. Looking back on it now she thinks she was drawn to the “fatherly, protective energy that he had in spades.” Gaby praised Ray Liotta by adding, “What a beautiful actor he was, too.”

Field of Dreams earned itself 3 Academy Award Nominations at the time. The cast of the movie also included James Earl Jones, Dwier Brown, Amy Madigan, and Timothy Busfield.
