#Quote
1It's a gift to remember my mother's voice as she read to me when I was a child. I loved to rest my head against her side and feel her voice resonating through her ribs. It seemed to me like I was putting my ear to an instrument being played.
2[Excerpt from her 1991 Academy Award acceptance speech] I'd like to thank Jimmy Caan, and apologize publicly for the ankles.
3My mother used to tell this corny story about how the doctor smacked me on the behind when I was born and I thought it was applause, and I have been looking for it ever since.
4I was never an ingénue. I've always just been a character actor. When I was younger, it was a real problem, because I was never pretty enough. It was hard, not just for the lack of work, but because you have to face up to how people are looking at you.
5[on playing Terry Bradshaw's movie wife in Failure to Launch (2006)] When I was told Terry Bradshaw would be playing my husband, I was like "The star-quarterback Terry Bradshaw?".
6[on losing the role of Frankie, which had been written for her by playwright Terrence McNally, to Michelle Pfeiffer in the movie version of "Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune"] I thought it was wonderful to see a love story about people over forty, ordinary people who were trying to connect. We haven't seen it before, and I don't think we will see it with this movie Frankie and Johnny (1991).
7The Oscar changed everything. Better salary, working with better people, better projects, more exposure, less privacy.
