Anne Heche Quotes (41 Quotes)


    Ellen and I had a three and a half year relationship that ended sadly, not because we were both women, but because we both wanted different things for our lives,

    But that kind of went along with the imagery, for me, of the bird, the flightiness, the lightness, the light-footedness. So we literally timed out that scene in one shot to be the same exact timing as what Hitchcock and Janet Leigh had originally done, down to where she puts the money.

    Are we changing the idea of what beauty is? Let's hope so. I'm not the typical Hollywood beauty. Let's hope we're looking at the insides of people a little more.

    And as a child, we have such a wonderful thing as children, that we can just make the best of everything, and say, Well, this must be what everybody else is experiencing, and I've got to make the best of it. You don't know that it's not good until you witness something that it seems better.

    When I was with Ellen, I was telling people, If you come out, it's gonna be better for you. But I honestly don't know that.

    Of all ways to do a remake, ... I think Gus chose the most incredible way, because what he's saying is 'I honor you.' This is like more praise to Hitchcock than anybody who would take another film, and remake it, and try to make it different. Gus is saying, 'Not only am I not going to make it different, I'm going to honor you every step of the way.'

    The whole shooting process of 'Psycho' was amazing in that way, because I felt like I had been chosen to remake history,

    I searched so hard for a part that was so complex.

    What Norman Bates calls for is for an actor to be able to go into their insanity, ... Vince is one of the few people I think who's willing to go into that duplicity in himself, and that insanity, and say, 'You know what Now I'll show it to you.' I think that we're going to love his Norman Bates, because he's showing you himself in ways that nobody else would have the courage to do. It's an amazing performance.

    I wanted to talk about stuff that people don't talk about so that maybe they would talk about it, ... So ... maybe they could save themselves from going crazy.

    I'm one of those people who was taught not to ruffle any feathers. Of course, I have no problem ruffling feathers.

    I loved the character, but the challenge, to me, became making this character exactly new and modern in exactly the same behavior and language that was already done, ... Because she wanted to be married, she wanted to risk everything to be with this man, and oftentimes, women are so willing to give and give and give and give, and actually receive so little. And this guy comes in once every couple of weeks and has sex with her in a motel room. This is not a guy to steal 400,000 for.

    When you are coming out, you say it's for you. But when everybody says it's not OK, it becomes about that rather than about you. It disappointed me.

    We decided, OK, we're going to look at the scene every time before we shoot it, ... And Vince and I went, and we looked, and literally down to the body language of when he hands her the pen, how she ducks in from the rain, how she turns to walk out the door, whether she turns to the left or turns to the right. I wanted to hold my purse the same way, to show how specific you can get, and how different it will be, according to what the mind of a person is.
