Every man I have ever known has fallen in love with Gilda and awakened with me.
I never really thought of myself as a beauty goddess; I felt I was more a comedian who could dance.
Every actor, every director, everybody needs an Oscar. You have to have that little statue in Hollywood, or else you're nothing!
All I wanted was just what everybody else wants, you know, to be loved.
The fun of acting is to become someone else.
We are all tied to our destiny and there is no way we can liberate ourselves.
I didn't like dancing very much, but I didn't have the courage to tell my father, so I began taking the lessons. Rehearse, rehearse, rehearse. That was my girlhood.
