Acting is a nice childish profession - pretending you're someone else and at the same time selling yourself.
I'm a personality as well as an actress. Show me an actress who isn't a personality and you'll show me a woman who isn't a star.
If you have fame, you never feel that you have fame, if you have the brains of a flea. Because fame is something that's over back of you. It ain't ahead.... Not ahead at all. I mean, if you've done it that's great, but "what are you going to do now?" is the only thing that matters.
Sometimes I wonder if men and women really suit each other. Perhaps they should live next door and just visit now and then.
Being a housewife and a mother is the biggest job in the world, but if it doesn't interest you, don't do it - I would have made a terrible mother.
Acting is the perfect idiot's profession.
It's life isn't it? You plow ahead and make a hit. And you plow on and someone passes you. Then someone passes them. Time levels.
It's a business you go into because your an egocentric. It's a very embarrassing profession.
