Getting old is not for sissies.
From the age of six, I have known that I was sexy. And let me tell you it has been hell, sheer hell, waiting to do something about it.
I do not regret one professional enemy I have made. Any actor who doesn't dare to make an enemy should get out of the business.
Love is not enough. It must be the foundation, the cornerstone - but not the complete structure. It is much too pliable, too yielding.
She's the original good time that was had by all.
My passions were all gathered together like fingers that made a fist. Drive is considered aggression today; I knew it then as purpose.
With the newspaper strike on, I wouldn't consider dying.
I'd marry again if I found a man who had fifteen million dollars, would sign over half to me, and guarantee that he'd be dead within a year.
The out-of-work actor wears out more than shoe leather. The very sensibilities that make him an artist are shattered by the disregard he is shown as a human being.
This became a credo of mine...attempt the impossible in order to improve your work.
I was thought to be 'stuck up.' I wasn't. I was just sure of myself. This is and always has been an unforgivable quality to the unsure.
There are new words now that excuse everybody. Give me the good old days of heroes and villains. the people you can bravo or hiss. There was a truth to them that all the slick credulity of today cannot touch.
It has been my experience that one cannot, in any shape or form, depend on human relations for lasting reward. It is only work that truly satisfies.
There comes a time in every woman's life when the only thing that helps is a glass of champagne.
I am doomed to an eternity of compulsive work. No set goal achieved satisfies. Success only breeds a new goal. The golden apple devoured has seeds. It is endless.
To fulfill a dream, to be allowed to sweat over lonely labor, to be given the chance to create, is the meat and potatoes of life. The money is the gravy. As everyone else, I love to dunk my crust in it. But alone, it is not a diet designed to keep body and soul together.
