Zitat des Tages von Sally Field:
I can't deny the fact that you like me! You like me!
I've done some good work and some not-good work.
I'm so vigorous, and I so take it for granted, because I've always been a real physical person.
I wanted to be Katharine Hepburn-ish - there was a bit of nobility about her.
But I was losing so much bone density that I would have been in grave danger. And I mean grave danger. If I had let it go just a few more years I could have broken my hip or spine just picking up my granddaughter.
If I hadn't fought back, I might have been Gidget forever.
It took me a long time not to judge myself through someone else's eyes.
I think that's very sad, that I haven't allowed my heart to be broken. I have broken a few.
Last year I was diagnosed with osteoporosis. I was over 50, Caucasian, thin, small-framed, and I have it in my genetic history. It was almost a slam-dunk.
There was really a snobbery from people in film - they did not want people who had come from television. It was the poor relation of show business, and especially situation comedy.
I have never been beautiful in cliche terms.
I did comedies for 10 years and I learned a great deal.
I was raised to sense what someone wanted me to be and be that kind of person. It took me a long time not to judge myself through someone else's eyes.
You lose your habitual behavior, which allowed you to sort of zone out. You have to be here, you have to be now, you have to be present.
I really have no ulterior motive in taking on certain roles. I have no larger issue that I really want to show people. I'm an actor, that's all. I just do what I do.
I've never had my heart broken. It's a very sad state of affairs. I think everybody should have their heart broken. I don't think it says anything good about me at all.
I think the first thing I did was several scenes from Romeo and Juliet.
I haven't had an orthodox career, and I've wanted more than anything to have your respect. The first time I didn't feel it, but this time I feel it, and I can't deny the fact that you like me, right now, you like me!
Change is never easy.
'Forrest Gump' is filled full of moments where your heart just cheers.
I came from a real working-class show business family.
My agent said, 'You aren't good enough for movies.' I said, 'You're fired.'
I joined the Actors Studio and began to work with Lee Strasberg, and that changed my work.
I would take plays and I would cut out all the other dialogue and make long monologues because I felt the other kids weren't taking it as seriously as I did.
I never really address myself to any image anybody has of me. That's like fighting with ghosts.
When you're old, you are more certain of who you are, and that may be a good thing or a bad thing.
But there isn't any second half of myself waiting to plug in and make me whole. It's there. I'm already whole.
Had there not been a Mary Todd, there would not have been an Abraham Lincoln. She found him when he was a young lawyer and really a bumpkin. No one knew of him, but she recognized his brilliance.
I was just lucky enough to grow up in a time when they actually had drama departments in schools.
I mean, the only thing that matters to me is getting to the work - getting to do the work. And I don't really care where it is: whether it's on stage or on television or in film.
I wouldn't mind having my heart broken because it would mean that I had that much feeling connected to somebody. And that would be really great.
I don't want to look old and worn, but what can you do? My real focus is being an actor. I care more about having the opportunity to play roles that I haven't played than I care if my neck looks like someone's bedroom curtains.
I really like cable T.V.
The opportunities I've had to play really complex characters - which haven't been a lot, but some - you never get over them.
I'm looking for a bunch of new tchotchkes that represent the new part of my life.
