I don't feel that I was a Hollywood-created star.
I loved acting, which was never about money, the fame. It was about a search for meaning. It was painful.
For every answer, I like to bring up a question. Maybe I'm related to Alfred Hitchcock or maybe I got to know him too well, but I think life should be that way.
The work I did in Vertigo meant nothing if no one cared about the movie. Luckily, Vertigo had a revival and people had begun to recognize there was something special and it gained in reputation. But it just as well could have ended up rotting in film cans somewhere.
I live way out in the country, so there's not a lot of people around to remind me. And my friends don't think of me as 'Kim Novak' anymore anyway. It's like they forgot, too. And so it's nice.
I don't feel I ever reached my potential as an actress. I certainly didn't try to promote myself.
I'm an emotional person.
