“I think animals reflect the personalities of their owners. That’s why I like birds – they’re like champagne bubbles, with no worries. Just gay and euphoric. So am I. And cats, too. They’re individualists, they won’t do anything if they don’t want to. Neither will I.”Julie Newmar

“I don’t think of myself as a sex symbol. I’m really not too aware of what a sex symbol is. It’s the man who says ‘Wow!’ But ask me what I think about sex and I’ll tell you it’s like walking out into the sunlight. It’s something healthy, something delicious. And, I don’t just mean sex like in dirty books. When you feel good, you feel sexy. It embraces all of life.”Julie Newmar
