There was more good acting at Hollywood parties than ever appeared on the screen.
What a fool I was to come to Hollywood where they only understand platinum blondes and where legs are more important than talent.
People often become actresses because of something they dislike about themselves: They pretend they are someone else.
I don't think of myself as a character actress - that's become a phrase which means you've had it.
Men become much more attractive when they start looking older. But it doesn't do much for women, though we do have an advantage: make-up.
Today everyone is a star - they're all billed as 'starring' or 'also starring'. In my day, we earned that recognition.
We movie stars all end up by ourselves. Who knows? Maybe we want to.
