“The publicity folks have been kidding me because while I was away from Metro I confessed to a writer that all the men in my life were figments of someone’s imagination. When I came back here they told me that they’d tried hard to give me a romantic reputation, and I had no right to blast their glamour.” – Madge Evans

“Most children who succeed on screen or stage have to pass through a gawky and uncouth age. I was one of the fortunate ones that nature smiled upon.” — Madge Evans
“I am supposed to be completely normal. I am the Typical American Girl. I became a Typical American Girl by accident—the accident of a few early picture parts depicting her … That’s my role and I’m stuck with it. Maybe I’d like to be known as a mysterious silent woman, a provocative creature of languor and possible secret sorrows. Nobody cares. Maybe I’ve all the instincts of a madcap. Who would believe it?” — Madge Evans
