Zitat des Tages von Judi Dench:
Seriously, though, I think I never ceased to be grateful of the fact that I am able to do a job that I really love - I never got over that.
Sometimes nudity is gratuitous. We just live in a society where everything goes.
I think you should take your job seriously, but not yourself - that is the best combination.
I can't read scripts any more because of the trouble with my eyes.
Some things you know about, you know what the ingredients are - maybe not all of them. But it's up to you to put in the amount. It's up to the director to nag you until you get it right.
The Lord Chamberlin was censoring scripts when I first came into the theater.
The theater is the thing I love doing most.
Since Michael died I think I've worked constantly. Friends and colleagues are very sustaining. They're the people who get you through it... It's no good to be on your own.
I have no control over a film. I don't know what will be left on the cutting floor.
It was good to learn so early. They're not going to be kind to you. You have to do it and get on, and then gulp down and get better.
I need to learn every day.
I work out the other bits, too, but I need to know what I look like, very early on. And then it's like a template; I'll fill that person out. If I get that out of the way, then I'm all right.
I think you've got to have your feet planted firmly on the ground, especially in this business, and you must not believe things that are said or written about you, because everything gets out of proportion one way or the other.
I would like to work with Jack Nicholson, before it's too late.
I've figured out what to do so far, but it's always the next thing you come to where the man with the bucket of ice cold water is waiting - whoosh! in your face. That's why you work with directors who know what to tell you to do.
I'd rather do a part because I want to, not because great things are expected of me.
People seem to have this idea that I've always been very ambitious. Nothing could be further from the truth.
I was in Yorkshire. We were a family of five and I used to be sent sometimes to get the rations for the week and I was easily able to carry them back. It was like one egg and a tiny bit of tea.
There are very few things that surprise me.
Because, you know, I can't work a bicycle pump.
I love being part of a company, and telling a story.
I am so thrilled to be nominated for something I loved working on every single day.
It is not good to cross the bridge before you get to it.
I trained as a designer, so I'm always terribly keen about what I'm going to look like.
People think you know beforehand when you win an Oscar - I can assure you you don't.
It actually was a complete departure having a woman playing M. I didn't realize at the time that it would be so noticed.
And then it was working with Bob Hoskins, who I had never worked with before - except radio. It was like being given a wonderful meal - full of the things you love most.
The difficulty with any sort of esteem is that more is expected of you.
Work certainly does help fill a void.
I've got what my ma had, macular degeneration, which you get when you get old.
I wanted to be a set designer when I was young.
In the theatre you can change things ever so slightly; it's an organic thing. Whereas in film you only have that chance on the day, and you have no control over it at all.
I would hate people to think bossy is all I can do.
