I am going to be a great actress.
I have just made out my will and given all the things I have and many that I haven't.
I loved fencing and dancing and elocution.
I need something truly beautiful to look at in hotel rooms.
I never found accents difficult, after learning languages.
I think Edith Evans is the most marvelous actress in the world and she can look beautiful. People who aren't beautiful can look beautiful. She can look as beautiful as Diana Cooper, who was the most beautiful woman in the world.
I'm a Scorpio, and Scorpios eat themselves out and burn themselves up like me.
I'm not a film star, I am an actress. Being a film star is such a false life, lived for fake values and for publicity.
I'm not afraid to die.
I've always been mad about cats.
I've been a godmother loads of times, but being a grandmother is better than anything.
Life is too short to work so hard.
My first husband and I are still good friends and there is no earthly reason why I should not see him. Larry and I are very much in love.
My parents were absolutely delighted that I knew what I wanted to do.
My parents were French and Irish and our family even has Spanish blood-and I do so love the United States and consider myself part American.
People think that if you look fairly reasonable, you can't possibly act, and as I only care about acting, I think beauty can be a great handicap.
Shaw is like a train. One just speaks the words and sits in one's place. But Shakespeare is like bathing in the sea - one swims where one wants.
Sometimes I dread the truth of the lines I say. But the dread must never show.
When I come into the theatre I get a sense of security. I love an audience. I love people, and I act because I like trying to give pleasure to people.
When I was at school at Paris, I had special lessons from Mademoiselle Antoine, an actress at the Comedie Francaise, and I was taken to every sort of play. I felt very grand.
You know the passage where Scarlett voices her happiness that her mother is dead, so that she can't see what a bad girl Scarlett has become? Well, that's me.
A lucky thing Eva Peron was. She died at 32. I'm already 45.
Classical plays require more imagination and more general training to be able to do. That's why I like playing Shakespeare better than anything else.
Comedy is much more difficult than tragedy-and a much better training, I think. It's much easier to make people cry than to make them laugh.
Dear Lord, I'm so grateful I'm still loved.
