Zitat des Tages von Debbie Reynolds:
I've always been a good mother, but I've always been in show business, and I've been on stage, and I don't bake cookies and I don't stay home.
My marriages have been one of the greatest voids in my life.
I gave it all that I had, and it's gratifying that others seem to be receiving it so well.
You don't have to be angry and become an ugly person.
When you were under contract, you did what you were told to do.
That's what I love about dance. It makes you happy, fully happy.
Every performer should learn a little bit of everything.
Lana Turner and Ava Gardner were my special friends at MGM.
I never thought I would live this long.
You all know who she is. There's very little she isn't.
Everything about the studio was enormous. You walked through the gates of iron, and it was palatial looking. The first day, I was introduced to Clark Gable. He said, 'Hello, kid. Welcome to MGM. I'm just leaving.'
I miss the movies. Still, I understood that my kind of movie has had its day. I thought it was over for me.
I'm very religious. I believe that things happen, and you have to go along with them.
The only way to make it through life is to fight.
Drama's unhappy, and playing someone unhappy would make me unhappy.
I stopped making movies because I don't like taking my clothes off. Maybe it's realism, but in my opinion, it's utter filth.
We were rather poor, but we always had what we needed.
I don't think you can ever be bitter about anything, because if you don't allow your heart to stay open, then all you have is a filled heart of hate and bitterness, and you're never able to love or like anybody.
I wanted to be as comfortable in that environment as she was. I moved around those areas in character.
You don't get there the easy way. If you feel sorry for yourself, and you let yourself go down, you will drown.
I just think my life's been really blessed, because being in show business, I've met wonderful people, and I've traveled all over the world.
I wanted to get that sense of peace and even boredom that comes with long familiarity.
I had the sets that meant so much to this character built - right in my home, especially the kitchen, which was important both for her character and for your introduction to her when Albert comes to visit.
My son, Todd Fisher- he has been such a wonderful son and brother.
It's very hard when your child doesn't want to talk to you and you want to talk to them, and you want to touch them, you want to hold them.
My dreams kind of came through when I went to see the cinema.
You have to believe in yourself.
I believed that the husband takes care of the family, and the wife takes care of him, and they are true to each other. I know that sounds a romantic illusion, but it can be true.
Gene Kelly was one of the greatest dancers of all time and a taskmaster. He sought from you the absolute best - and he got it.
I wish I could have been more enlightened at 18 and learned more about men because I could have avoided all the traps.
Well, one of the things I did was recreate her home in my home.
We all knew each other in the neighborhood. I loved living in El Paso. I had a wonderful childhood there.
Travel is hard, but entertaining is joy.
Fred Astaire was my dream dancer.
Fred Astaire was retired when he worked in 'The Pleasure of His Company.' They were lucky to get him to play the father part.
I want happiness for my daughter - I want Carrie to be happy.
