Actress quotes by Mick LaSalle
#1. FRENCH CINEMA IS SO RICH in opportunities for actresses of talent that a career needn't build quickly, with a few star-making turns. It can build slowly, over the course of years. An actress can make the most of ensemble and supporting parts, grow in popularity, grow in ability and ultimately find herself, some ten years down the line, in possession of a major career. #Quote by Mick LaSalle

#24. She had defeated loneliness by bringing to life the books that peopled her imagination and making friends of them.

With devastating clarity she saw that her ability was not only a panacea for unhappiness. It was her lifeblood. Part of the very fiber of her being. And here, in Hollywood, it could be fulfilled.

She didn't want to be an actress.

She was one.

All she had to do to be a star was to be true to herself. #Quote by Margaret Pemberton

Actress quotes by Kristen Ashley
#37. He raped me, Agent Calhoun, he hit me but he didn't kill me. As long as I'm breathing,
I've got fight in me and luckily I'm breathing."
It was at that he whispered, "You aren't like a lot of women."
"Yes I am," I whispered back. "I'm like all women. You see this but inside there's
something else that I won't let you see or him see but it's the mess he left me. But that's
mine. No one gets to it. Everything you get and he gets is a show. One thing you learn really
quickly and really well when that kind of thing happens to you is to be a fucking great
actress. You don't have a choice in that because a man like that does something like that to
you, you lose having choices. The only choice you have is what role you intend to play. I
picked my role and that ... that Agent Calhoun is what you see. #Quote by Kristen Ashley

Actress quotes by Emma Watson
#43. The character is everything that I felt strongly against - she's superficial, materialistic, vain, amoral. She's all of these things and I realized that I hated her. How do you play someone you hate? But I found it really interesting, and it gave me a whole new insight into what my job, or my role as an actress, could be. #Quote by Emma Watson
Actress quotes by Anne-Marie Duff
#44. There are some roles you just don't say 'no' to. Those compass points: you get them so rarely as an actress. #Quote by Anne-Marie Duff
Actress quotes by Irene Dunne
#45. I appeared with many leading men. But working with Cary Grant was different from working with other actors. He was much more fun! I think we were a successful team because we enjoyed working together tremendously, and that pleasure must have shown through onto the screen. I will always remember two compliments he made me. He said I had perfect timing in comedy and that I was the sweetest smelling actress he ever worked with. #Quote by Irene Dunne
Actress quotes by Betsy Palmer
#46. It's bad enough that I'm an actress that wants to be recognized as an actress. Instead, I am known for doing game shows. #Quote by Betsy Palmer

Actress quotes by Giovanna Cau

Actress quotes by Sally Hawkins
#52. Characters that are not the norm or a bit out of the ordinary are always a challenge as an actress. You learn more by using different tools for those type of characters. They are always much more fun to play and much more interesting. They take you places that you wouldn't necessarily go in your everyday life. #Quote by Sally Hawkins
Actress quotes by Greta Gerwig
#53. I think as an actress, I prefer having a character on the page. It allows you to be more invested in actually creating a whole person. It's easier when you're not trying to come up with your next line on the spot. #Quote by Greta Gerwig

Actress quotes by Tom Lehrer
#59. An actress must never lose her ego - without it she has no talent. #Quote by Tom Lehrer

Actress quotes by Lou Doillon
#63. I love acting; I love movie sets and movies, but, at the same time, there's something about the position of women in that world that frightens me a lot. I find it nearly inhuman to be an actress. #Quote by Lou Doillon
Actress quotes by Eliza Doolittle
#64. I did try theatre out when I was little. I did roles as a child actress. My parents didn't push me into it. But I was up for it. I didn't enjoy doing eight shows a week, though. That repetitiveness didn't appeal to me. I love doing something different every day and travelling. You can't do that in the theatre. #Quote by Eliza Doolittle
Actress quotes by Victoria Smurfit
#65. As an actress, the joy of being able to play the three sides of any woman, which are the glamour, the pragmatic and the one not to be messed with, is pretty glorious. #Quote by Victoria Smurfit
Actress quotes by Kim Cattrall
#66. Most of your life as an actor in Hollywood, either an actress or an actor, you have to look - you have to work out, you have to look - you rarely get to play someone who's just human, who's real, who is overweight, even not grossly overweight, but who has aspects of just everyday life. #Quote by Kim Cattrall

#67. [ Working Meryl Streep] I just felt like I was shaving years off my discovery as an actress to realize, "Okay, that's what this feels like." #Quote by Anne Hathaway

Actress quotes by Neil Jordan
#72. For example, the character of Claire in In Dreams wasn't imagined enough by me. Annette Bening is a great actress, and she gave a great performance, but because I hadn't fully written it essentially the character wasn't finished. #Quote by Neil Jordan
Actress quotes by Leslie Mann
#73. I don't quite fit in in like a pure dramatic thing, but I still think of myself sometimes as sort of a dramatic actress. #Quote by Leslie Mann
Actress quotes by Ciara Bravo
#74. 'Big Time Rush' was a great show, and I had some great experiences. It allowed me to become more of a comedic actress, which is also a great skill to have. But there wasn't a whole lot of tragedy in there. Not quite as dark as 'Red Band Society.' So I've been very lucky to have been able to grow in that sense, just through moving to FOX. #Quote by Ciara Bravo
Actress quotes by Gena Rowlands
#75. The thing about acting is you don't want to let on how enjoyable it is or then everybody would want to become an actress. But it really is. It's a pleasure to go and exchange your identity. #Quote by Gena Rowlands

Actress quotes by Lou Doillon
#83. 'Blanche' opened a new door for me without really making me more famous. 'Blanche' was a risk, but that is the only thing that excites me in this profession. The knowledge that I am an actress who takes risks lifts my soul. #Quote by Lou Doillon

Actress quotes by Kate Winslet

Actress quotes by Konnie Huq
#89. I had a Saturday job in a chemist. The pay was something ridiculous like £2 an hour - it was slave labour - and I spent all day cleaning shelves. On my first day an actress from Eldorado, which was on telly at the time, came in and said, 'Can I have some Replense please?' I didn't know what it was, so I had to ask her and she had to say, 'It's vaginal moisturiser,' in front of a massive queue of people. After one day I was like, 'I don't want to do this job any more, it's just boring.' #Quote by Konnie Huq
Actress quotes by Elisabeth Moss
#90. I think my guideline has been to find things that inspire me. And as long as I stick to that, I don't think I'll have any problems crossing over to becoming an adult actress. #Quote by Elisabeth Moss
Actress quotes by Meredith Baxter
#91. More than anything else, my mother wanted to be an actress - a famous actress - which in the 1950s was all about being young, sexy, and available. She was all that, and more. She had big blue eyes, alabaster skin, a heart-shaped face, a beautiful figure. She was just a knockout. #Quote by Meredith Baxter
Actress quotes by Judy Blume
#92. When I was growing up, I dreamed about becoming a cowgirl, a detective, a spy, a great actress, or a ballerina. Not a dentist, like my father, or a homemaker, like my mother - and certainly not a writer, although I always loved to read. #Quote by Judy Blume
Actress quotes by Gisele Bundchen
#93. I'm not an actress, you know. I don't know what's going on. And I'm supposed to be the villain. #Quote by Gisele Bundchen
Actress quotes by Billy Wilder
#94. She was an absolute genius as a comedic actress, with an extraordinary sense for comedic dialogue. It was a God-given gift. Believe me, in the last fifteen years there were ten projects that came to me, and I'd start working on them and I'd think, 'It's not going to work, it needs Marilyn Monroe.' Nobody else is in that orbit; everyone else is earthbound by comparison. #Quote by Billy Wilder
Actress quotes by Tinsel Korey
#95. Kristen is really focused and really quiet, as an actress. She just does her thing, but she's cool. I like her. I know a lot of people have mixed comments about her, but I think she's a rad person. She's just focused on what she's doing, as an actress, and she wants to pick the right roles, and she's committed to her craft. She's really cool. We got along. There weren't any tensions or anything. #Quote by Tinsel Korey
Actress quotes by Camille Paglia
#96. Elizabeth Taylor is, in my opinion, the greatest actress in film history. She instinctively understands the camera and its nonverbal intimacies. Opening her violet eyes, she takes us into the liquid realm of emotion, which she inhabits by Pisces intuition. Richard Burton said that Taylor showed him how to act for the camera. Economy and understatement are essential. At her best, Elizabeth Taylor simply is. An electric, erotic charge vibrates the space between her face and the lens. It is an extra-sensory, pagan phenomenon. #Quote by Camille Paglia
Actress quotes by Sienna Miller
#97. As an actress I feel that if you start to impose your own inhibitions, then you are not doing your job. #Quote by Sienna Miller
Actress quotes by Go Ah-sung
#98. I don't think I can be a bright and fresh-looking actress. I am not really confident in that kind of character. #Quote by Go Ah-sung
Actress quotes by Bob Newhart
#99. There are some actresses that can't do comedy; it's too heavy-handed. #Quote by Bob Newhart
Actress quotes by Jacqueline Susann
#100. Acting is glamour but writing is hard work, so I'm going to be an actress. #Quote by Jacqueline Susann
Actress quotes by Jennifer Lopez
#101. I just knew that was what I wanted to do. I was going to perform as a singer; I was going to perform as a dancer, and I was, you know, going to do movies and be an actress. I was going to do it or die trying. That's what my life was. #Quote by Jennifer Lopez
Actress quotes by Carey Mulligan
#102. I didn't want to do a costume drama. It's a great thing to do, but I've done them, and I didn't want to do the same thing again. Of course, costume dramas can be from all different eras, but at the time, I just felt very sure that I didn't want to be boxed in as an English actress. I wanted to be an actress, rather than an English actress. #Quote by Carey Mulligan
Actress quotes by Angie Dickinson
#103. I don't want to be a great actress. I want to be a sexy movie star. #Quote by Angie Dickinson
Actress quotes by Nance O'Neil
#104. An actress must be a woman whose emotional perceptions are true, and to make them so, she must have a fine contempt for any art or thought that betrays them for something false. #Quote by Nance O'Neil
Actress quotes by Debby Ryan
#105. Hi. My name is Debby, and I am a storyteller. I don't think of myself as an actress. I am more like a face that takes words on a page, and puts them in front of your eyes. #Quote by Debby Ryan
Actress quotes by Eva Gabor
#106. There was no way I could live in Hollywood and not become an actress. #Quote by Eva Gabor
Actress quotes by Monica Bellucci
#107. There is this thing in America where actresses reach 40 and go mad. The film industry wants all these young people. #Quote by Monica Bellucci
Actress quotes by Isla Fisher
#108. I've never been a method actress; I've never been that person that wants to imagine horrible things happening in your own life in order to exploit them for your emotional being in the movie. I'm just not good at doing that. #Quote by Isla Fisher
Actress quotes by Laverne Cox
#109. I was an actress long before I was a reality TV person. #Quote by Laverne Cox
Actress quotes by Austin Scarlett
#110. For theater, the fashion had to have a certain grandeur that would read on the stage while also flattering the actress. The same thing applies when doing a wedding dress, but the treatments can be more delicate and there can be much more detail. #Quote by Austin Scarlett
Actress quotes by Grace Phipps
#111. I really like suspense in movies. I don't really like rom-coms. But that being said, as an audience member I really like horror films and actress I really like working with fake blood; I think it's so fun. #Quote by Grace Phipps
Actress quotes by India De Beaufort
#112. I had no interest in being an actress what so ever, and when I was about 14 or 15, I was signed to a company in England. They owned a children's TV show which they put me in as a singer, and I was on the show for three years, and I left the show when I was 18 and started looking for a record contract. #Quote by India De Beaufort
Actress quotes by Richard Rhodes
#113. 'Reedlike, that's what Hedy Kiesler is, sweet and reedlike, and when she wants to talk to you she doesn't lean over your shoulder and arch herself out behind like a debutante ... She leans back from you [and] takes a good look in your eyes and a firm grip on your name before she will allow herself to say a word.' #Quote by Richard Rhodes
Actress quotes by Helena Bonham Carter
#114. That's the thing with animated films - I often feel that puppets get the better parts compared to us normal actresses. #Quote by Helena Bonham Carter
Actress quotes by V.S. Pritchett
#115. Queen Victoria - a mixture of national landlady and actress. #Quote by V.S. Pritchett
Actress quotes by Anna Friel
#116. I play a character every day of my life, and I don't want to play a character as myself. They can judge me as an actress, not as a person. I'm not a spokeswoman for Anna. #Quote by Anna Friel
Actress quotes by Emma Thompson
#117. Lindsay [Doran] goes round the table and introduces everyone
making it clear that I am present in the capacity of writer rather than actress, therefore no one has to be too nice to me. #Quote by Emma Thompson
Actress quotes by Dakota Fanning
#118. I've been a ballerina since I was two, but I've always wanted to be an actress. #Quote by Dakota Fanning
Actress quotes by Vivien Leigh
#119. Some critics saw fit to say that I was a great actress. I thought that was a foolish, wicket thing to say because it put such an onus and such a responsibility onto me, which I simply wasn't able to carry. #Quote by Vivien Leigh
Actress quotes by Isabelle Huppert
#120. I never wondered whether I should be a stage actress or a movie actress. #Quote by Isabelle Huppert
Actress quotes by Reese Witherspoon
#121. I'm not a politician, She says evenly. If I want to be one, I'll run for office. Susan Sarandon, whom I know and love, is a fantastic actress. It's her right as an American to say whatever she wants. [But] just because you're rich and famous doesn't qualify you to make political statements. I don't put my opinions out there to influence people. You have alot of influence. And sometimes I feel it's undeserved influence. #Quote by Reese Witherspoon
Actress quotes by Elizabeth Wilson
#122. I had no desire to be a star. I wanted to be a character actress and be able to do all kinds of parts and work on a lot of things. That was my unconscious choice. I wanted to be an undercover actress. #Quote by Elizabeth Wilson
Actress quotes by Catherine Deneuve
#123. I have been involved in some films other actresses would not have done. #Quote by Catherine Deneuve
Actress quotes by Jaclyn Smith
#124. I was the first actress who branded her own line at a time when everyone just lent their name to a product. Everyone said I shouldn't do it, but it was probably the best thing I've ever done. #Quote by Jaclyn Smith
Actress quotes by Talulah Riley
#125. I'm not some sort of tormented soul looking for an identity in the roles I take. I became an actress because I just love dressing up and playing. #Quote by Talulah Riley
Actress quotes by Jaime Winstone
#126. As an actress, you have to keep yourself fresh and new. #Quote by Jaime Winstone
Actress quotes by LisaRaye McCoy-Misick
#127. I think it is important for every actress to be able to feel whatever garment she has on because, we as women, we know when we look good. We know when we feel good. #Quote by LisaRaye McCoy-Misick
Actress quotes by Megan Follows
#128. I did a short film at Outfest, 'Where Are the Dolls,' based on an Elizabeth Bishop poem done, where I play this woman who is sort of walking the streets and ends up alone dancing in a club. I have this hot and heavy scene with a very beautiful actress. It became very popular. #Quote by Megan Follows
Actress quotes by Famke Janssen
#129. Ever since I started as an actress, just to catch up on some money, but not having an income for three years was tricky. #Quote by Famke Janssen
Actress quotes by Brandon Witt
#130. GLINDA SANG about how good it was to be popular. And while the actress was nearly as good as Kristin Chenoweth, and the stage of Wicked glittered in fantasy, Casper couldn't peel his gaze off Kevin. #Quote by Brandon Witt
Actress quotes by Bill Vaughan
#131. If CASA?s board, which includes such scientific experts as actress Jamie Lee Curtis, wants to tell the world that drinking is bad for you, that?s their prerogative? But there?s no excuse for political activism masquerading as science. #Quote by Bill Vaughan
Actress quotes by Kate Winslet

Actress quotes by Julie Walters

Actress quotes by Kristin Kreuk
#135. I was one of those kids who wanted to do everything, I wanted to be a marine biologist, an actress, a writer, an environmentalist, an activist. #Quote by Kristin Kreuk
Actress quotes by Ashley Bell
#136. It's been said that horror films are experimental forms of art, and I agree. As an actress, you're put in positions and have to experience emotions that are way beyond reality, whether fighting in a post-apocalyptic world or being possessed by the Devil. #Quote by Ashley Bell
Actress quotes by Anupama Chopra
#137. The film was semi-autobiographical. Director Mahesh Bhatt based it on his relationship with actress Parveen Babi. #Quote by Anupama Chopra
Actress quotes by Olivia De Havilland
#138. Playing good girls in the 30s was difficult, when the fad was to play bad girls. Actually I think playing bad girls is a bore; I have always had more luck with good girl roles because they require more from an actress. #Quote by Olivia De Havilland
Actress quotes by Anna Kendrick
#139. I think right after 'Up in the Air' everyone wanted me to play the girl from 'Up in the Air,' and it took a little while for people to think of me as an actress from a film that they liked instead of just that character. #Quote by Anna Kendrick

#140. I've been working as an actress and sort of struggling along for ten years, so I've been on a million auditions for a million things I haven't booked. #Quote by Allison Tolman

Actress quotes by David Letterman
#143. Happy Birthday to Fay Wray, a wonderful actress. She was, of course, in the movie 'King Kong' and would have been 99-years-old today. She was famous because of her love interest with a giant ape, and, wait a minute, that's Maria Shriver. #Quote by David Letterman

Actress quotes by Diablo Cody
#146. Even though I am in this weird position of being a semi-recognizable screenwriter, which isn't that common, at the same time, I'm not an actress. I'm pretty isolated. #Quote by Diablo Cody
Actress quotes by Wallace Shawn
#147. Interestingly, the actress who, in her own persona, may be gentle, shy, and socially awkward, someone whose hand trembles when pouring a cup of tea for a visiting friend, can convincingly portray an elegant, cruel aristocrat tossing off malicious epigrams in an eighteenth-century chocolate house. #Quote by Wallace Shawn
Actress quotes by Spencer Tracy
#148. I couldn't be a director because I couldn't put up with the actors. I don't have the patience. Why, I'd probably kill the actors. Not to mention some of the beautiful actresses. #Quote by Spencer Tracy
Actress quotes by Jenny Slate
#149. I always just wanted to be a movie actress, like Lily Tomlin or Ruth Gordon. I just imagined myself being in a movie, wearing stylish women's clothing the way I saw Amy Irving wearing it. #Quote by Jenny Slate
Actress quotes by Anna Nicole Smith
#150. I wanted to become a model and an actress. #Quote by Anna Nicole Smith
Actress quotes by Daniela Bobadilla
#151. I'm a theater actress and I thrive on working with other actors, and you can't be even a smidge bad, when you're acting with Charlie [Sheen]. He's just so natural, so present and so good that you have to step up to his level, or else. #Quote by Daniela Bobadilla
Actress quotes by Leven Rambin
#152. When I was a kid, I was into psychological thrillers. When I was 12, my favorite movie was 'Thirteen.' I just really liked movies that showed an extreme range in acting. That's what made me want to become an actress. #Quote by Leven Rambin
Actress quotes by Tisha Campbell-Martin
#153. I became an actress and studied human emotions so that I could give the gift of feelings to my son. This is what my whole journey has been about. #Quote by Tisha Campbell-Martin
Actress quotes by Ava Gardner
#154. I must have seen more sunrises
than any other actress in the history of Hollywood #Quote by Ava Gardner

Actress quotes by Ireland Baldwin

Actress quotes by Lou Doillon

Actress quotes by Lisa Kudrow
#162. An actress, around 40, on television, that's where you get the most torture, I think. #Quote by Lisa Kudrow
Actress quotes by Salma Hayek
#163. I realize now that I've hoped to be great - as an actress, as a mother - because I want to embody the greatness of women who didn't get to be all they could have been. Their dignity, their courage, and their brilliance make me strive to be better. They're a part of me. #Quote by Salma Hayek
Actress quotes by Mitch Hedberg
#164. I met this girl, she was an actress, and she gave me her number. It started with 555. #Quote by Mitch Hedberg
Actress quotes by Judy Greer
#165. You've heard the phrase 'There are no small roles, just small actors?' Well, I kind of disagree. There are small roles, but when you get a lot of them in a row, you can become a pretty successful actress, and that's what I've done. #Quote by Judy Greer
Actress quotes by Rene Russo
#166. I didn't set out wanting to be an actress. That's not what I did. I didn't go to class striving to become an actress. I just basically - honestly, I didn't have anything else going. #Quote by Rene Russo
Actress quotes by George Eliot
#167. (Every nerve and muscle in Rosamond was adjusted to the consciousness that she was being looked at. She was by nature an actress of parts that entered into her physique: she even acted her own character, and so well, that she did not know it to be precisely her own.) #Quote by George Eliot
Actress quotes by Khandi Alexander
#168. I'm not a method actress. #Quote by Khandi Alexander
Actress quotes by Sandra Bullock
#169. I think most of us are raised with preconceived notions of the choices we're supposed to make. We waste so much time making decisions based on someone else's idea of our happiness - what will make you a good citizen or a good wife or daughter or actress. Nobody says, 'Just be happy - go be a cobbler or go live with goats.' #Quote by Sandra Bullock
Actress quotes by Saoirse Ronan
#170. I think that when you're an actress, you have to think about what kind of a role model you're going to be. I hope that I'm a good role model for young girls. I'm not going to, if people still want me in their movies, I don't want to be one of these girls who goes around partying every night and is in rehab. I don't want to do that, #Quote by Saoirse Ronan
Actress quotes by Mary Elizabeth Winstead
#171. I was always a performing arts kid in general - but I felt like my ultimate goal was to be an actress and be in films. #Quote by Mary Elizabeth Winstead

Actress quotes by Chris Pine

Actress quotes by Mila Kunis
#174. I think that there are a lot of reasons to be insecure as an actress ... But I don't really have a perception issue. I've been pretty good about being who I am in the public's eye. #Quote by Mila Kunis
Actress quotes by Lilly Singh
#175. Growing up, I idolised Madhuri Dixit. She's my favourite actress, and I used to pretend I was her all the time. #Quote by Lilly Singh
Actress quotes by Douglas Booth
#176. Ultimately I'll probably end up going out with an actress again. But an architect would be cool. They need to do something creative. I'm attracted to talent. But it would maybe be healthier if it wasn't in the industry. #Quote by Douglas Booth
Actress quotes by Joshua Jackson
#177. If I only dated actresses, I'd be a very lonely man. #Quote by Joshua Jackson
Actress quotes by Evangeline Lilly

Actress quotes by Alyssa Sutherland
#179. When you're playing a character, as an actor or actress, you can't judge them for what they do. You really have to find what is in them that you have compassion for and fall in love with that character, regardless of what they do or how they behave. #Quote by Alyssa Sutherland
Actress quotes by Tahyna Tozzi
#180. I always wanted to be an actress. It's been very high up on my list of passions, and I did a couple of short courses, and I've studied at school. #Quote by Tahyna Tozzi
Actress quotes by Javier Bardem
#181. As an actor, you can't judge. A great actress from Spain said, "We, the actors, are lawyers of the characters we play. We have to defend them, no matter what." #Quote by Javier Bardem
Actress quotes by Nick Offerman
#182. My wife, the actress Megan Mullally, was an English major at Northwestern University and loves fiction. Like so many things in my life, she curates things for me. For example, I have the daunting prospect of Donna Tartt's "The Goldfinch" waiting for me when I get through my current reading pile. #Quote by Nick Offerman
Actress quotes by Roxanne Payne
#183. I'm an actress and a copyrighted brand. That it why I choose to live in a theater. It stops any pretense that what you see is real. #Quote by Roxanne Payne
Actress quotes by Salma Hayek
#184. When I finally decided to leave school and pursue acting, my parents didn't take it very lightly. My friends thought that it was the tackiest thing they'd ever heard of. Acting was really beneath them. They couldn't believe that I would want to become an actress. Not now, of course. #Quote by Salma Hayek
Actress quotes by Kirby Howell
#185. I used to be Autumn Winters, daughter of an actress and an architect. I had been one of three living in this home, but now I was just Autumn Winters, and I was alone. #Quote by Kirby Howell
Actress quotes by Carrie Fisher
#186. I got real acting experience, which I'd never had partly because I still wasn't so sure that I wanted to be an actress. But maybe it was something I could do without a high school diploma or accredited skills of any kind whatsoever - a job that would pay me enough of a wage to let me go out into the world and start what I would laughingly come to call my own actual life. #Quote by Carrie Fisher
Actress quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#187. The actress playing Celia could ask why god had ever put her on earth.
and then the voice from the back of the theater could rumble: to reproduce. nothing else really interests me. all the rest is frippery. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Actress quotes by Kristen Stewart
#188. I have been criticized a lot for not looking perfect in every photograph. I'm not embarrassed about it. I'm proud of it. If I took perfect pictures all the time, the people standing in the room with me, or on the carpet, would think, 'What an actress! What a faker!' #Quote by Kristen Stewart
Actress quotes by Delta Burke
#189. Then a year would go by and I'd realize I love the acting too much and it is my identity and I don't know how to be anything but an actress. It's who and what I am, so I always come back. #Quote by Delta Burke
Actress quotes by John Le Carre
#190. What did theories matter any more? She wanted to say. The rats have taken over the ship, it's often as simple as that; the rest is narcissistic crap. It must be. (...) For exploitation read property and you have the whole bit. First the exploiter hits the wage-slave over the head with his superior wealth; then he brainwashes him into believing that the pursuit of property is a valid motive for breaking him at the grindstone. That way he has him hooked twice over. (...) "You disappoint me, Charlie. All of a sudden you lack consistency. You've made the perceptions. Why don't you go out and do something about them? Why do you appear here one minute as an intellectual who has the eye and brain to see what is not visible to the deluded masses, the next you have not the courage to go out and perform a small service - like theft - like murder - like blowing something up - say, a police station - for the benefit of those whose hearts and minds are enslaved by the capitalist overlords? Come on, Charlie, where's the action? You're the free soul around here. Don't give us the words, give us the deeds." (...) Anger suspended her bewilderment and dulled the pain of her disgrace (...) She wished terribly that she could go mad so that everyone would be sorry for her; she wished she was just a raving lunatic waiting to be let off, not a stupid little fool of a radical actress (...) (part I, chapter 7) #Quote by John Le Carre
Actress quotes by Sarah Paulson
#191. I'm sporting some really blonde hair because I live in Hollywood and I'm an actress. #Quote by Sarah Paulson
Actress quotes by Sara Paxton
#192. I have a lot of fun playing a model on television, and I love being an actress. I don't think I could ever handle that world. #Quote by Sara Paxton
Actress quotes by Olivia Thirlby
#193. I had this totally impossible dream of being an actress. Trust me, just because I'm lucky enough to be doing this doesn't make any of this less of a pipe dream. And nothing gets my juices flowing like a really great performance. To see someone on stage, I get really excited. #Quote by Olivia Thirlby
Actress quotes by Jennifer Garner
#194. It's about getting the kids up and fed, getting one to school, getting the other down for a nap, going to the grocery store, picking one up from school, getting the other one down for another nap, cooking dinner ... I live my life at these two extremes. I'm either a full-time stay-at-home mom or a full-time actress. #Quote by Jennifer Garner
Actress quotes by Evelyn Waugh
#195. Presently [Bridey] said: "If I was Rex" - his mind seemed full of such suppositions: "If I was Archbishop of Westminster," "If I was head of the Great Western Railway," "If I was an actress," as though it were a mere trick of fate that he was none of these things, and he might awake any morning to find the matter adjusted - "if I was Rex I should want to live in my constituency. #Quote by Evelyn Waugh
Actress quotes by Rose McIver
#196. I also have a role model back in New Zealand, a woman called Miranda Harcourt. She's an actress and a writer. Her willingness to stay open to material is really great. I read a lot, and I try to watch and listen to diverse material. #Quote by Rose McIver
Actress quotes by Marlee Matlin
#197. At some point we have to stop and say, There's Marlee, not, There's the deaf actress. #Quote by Marlee Matlin
Actress quotes by Rutina Wesley
#198. I did my first Broadway play, 'The Vertical Hour,' in 2006, with Julianne Moore, who's always been one of my favorite actresses. My scene was with her, so it was nerve-racking. #Quote by Rutina Wesley
Actress quotes by Bethany Joy Lenz
#199. I guess I've sort of always wanted to be an actress, except when I was five, which, I did want to be the Queen of England. #Quote by Bethany Joy Lenz
Actress quotes by Selena Gomez
#200. It's not normal for me to feel jealous. I'm competitive with myself more than anything. And anyway, all of my friends in the business are bigger than me! Most of them are musicians, and I think music takes them to a whole new level. For me, I'm going to try out music, but it will be more fun than anything else. I'm really trying my hardest to become a well-respected actress. All I really want to do is movie after movie after movie. I love acting, and I want to create that so I can be around for a long time. #Quote by Selena Gomez
