Quotes

#Quote
1I knew I would never be strong enough to be a soloist. And I wasn't going to be stuck in the back with all the other swans. (regarding her leaving ballet for an acting career.)
2I wish James Dean would never have died. Then he'd be fat and acting on Dynasty (1981) or something. There wouldn't be this whiny-boy act that's so prevalent everywhere.
