Stardom is only a by-product of acting. I don't think being a movie star is a good enough reason for existing.

I couldn't even go to the bathroom alone. My mother or a social worker always went with me.
I didn't like children. I didn't think of myself as a child. I didn't like any of the things other children were interested in.
I'm not very bright about money. I'm not domestic either. If I don't learn how to cook, maybe I won't have to.
Sometimes when I visit my sister and her two children, I wonder if she missed a lot by getting married. Right now, nothing could be further from my mind than getting married.

I'm just going to have to grow old, because I'm too terrified to have anything done.
The times that I have done something that I didn't respond to emotionally right away, it's generally not worked out too well.
