Zitat des Tages von Martha Plimpton:
As an actress for most of my life, I am profoundly familiar with poverty.
I'm hoping maybe people like working with me because I like what I do for a living and I want to have a good time.
I just want to be clear, I am a very dark and bitter person, but I think on some level, everything really does come when it's meant to come.
I'm so sick of hearing how there's no strong roles for women. I don't care about strong roles. I just want to see women who are characters! A nun, a serial killer, a housewife, as long as there's some depth there.
I am not a morning person. I like to sleep in.
I've had cats all my life and obviously loved them, but the litter box, and the having to always get a house sitter, they're just too - they're too rigid. Cats are too needy somehow.
I'd just like to see a role for women where someone who isn't traditionally attractive is not portraying the best friend. You know, the character that only speaks in questions. 'Gee, are you gonna go out with him? Do you think I look fat?'
See, I don't watch reality television anymore. I watched a little bit of it for awhile, but I found it turned my soul into a black sludge, and I just did not find it healthy or good for me at all, because I would watch it and be disgusted, disgusted.
My mother had been an actress and we came from that world in New York, the theater world and the downtown sort of theater scene, and so I guess we didn't really have what you'd call like a Hollywood kind of life at all.
Who owns your body? You or the state?
I wouldn't say Malkovich is totally insane, but he's not living in the real world. He's living in his world, which is a fine world to live in apparently.
It's long been accepted as fact that the availability of family planning services saves lives. Where women have access to these services, children and families are healthier, and society at large benefits.
If I'm enjoying myself, I find my opportunities for more fun become greater.
I would almost rather be in debt constantly than work with horrible people that I hate.
Things come to you in life when you're prepared for them, when you're ready for them.
Women have always been at the forefront of progressive movements. Women can be depended on when you need bodies in the streets for women's rights and human rights.
I hate those people who say 'I don't own a television' - I own one and I watch it whenever I can.
Independent film is not only an oxymoron; it doesn't exist anymore.
Being nominated is the win. For me, being nominated is winning. It's just unbelievable.
I don't know if I've learned anything about people, but I've learned about Twitter.
It's an unusual situation for me to be working and making a living.
It's a very long and difficult schedule on a single-camera show.
It's not common for a woman on television, especially if she's the mom of the family, to be funny. She's usually a straight man or foil.
The word 'equality' shows up too much in our founding documents for anyone to pretend it's not the American way.
I've been doing old-people things since I was a child.
People seem to think that you should be willing to speak to them whether they're jerks or not.
I've often said in the past that I thought MTV was sort of evil incarnate and signified the beginning of the end. And I don't know if I'm entirely wrong about that, but they did sign my paychecks a year ago, so I guess I'm part of the problem.
When you're working with good people it brings good things out in you.
It's not so weird that four generations are living together under the same roof and trying to make it work. It's how a lot of people in this country are living right now.
There are an infinite number of ways to be moved in the theater.
I don't like to get bored and don't like to repeat myself.
I watch things that are fun, or funny, or interesting.
I don't pay attention to the ratings.
I live like a crazy old pack rat.
I like things that are civilized.
I love dogs because they're so adaptable.
