I used to think as I looked at the Hollywood night, 'there must be thousands of girls sitting alone like me, dreaming of becoming a movie star. But I'm not going to worry about them. I'm dreaming the hardest.'
No one ever told me I was pretty when I was a little girl. All little girls should be told they're pretty, even if they aren't.
I don't mind living in a man's world as long as I can be a woman in it.
Fame is fickle and I know it. It has its compensations, but it also has its drawbacks and I've experienced them both.
I was never used to being happy, so that wasn't something I ever took for granted. I did sort of think, you know, marriage did that. You see, I was brought up differently from the average American child because the average child is brought up expecting to be happy - that's it, successful, happy, and on time.
I'm very definitely a woman and I enjoy it.
A career is born in public, talent in privacy.
With fame, you know, you can read about yourself, somebody else's ideas about you, but what's important is how you feel about yourself - for survival and living day to day with what comes up.
I am not interested in money. I just want to be wonderful.
It's often just enough to be with someone. I don't need to touch them. Not even talk. A feeling passes between you both. You're not alone.
