Mignon Anderson

“Just as soon as I reach Universal City, every morning, I go at once to the post office and see what my dear fans have to say to me. Many of them? I have to take a traveling case, usually, to get them to my dressing room. Some of those letters are wonderful. They tell me when my work is good and when it is bad, and are my greatest inspiration and help. I answer every one of them, and in some cases it has resulted in warm friendship springing up between them and myself. Some of the best friends I have are those I have never met.”Mignon Anderson

Mignin Anderson reading“As long as there are actors and actresses there will be silly old men and foolish youths to write them love letters. They amuse me, for I cannot understand how anyone can become passionately in love with individuals they’ve never met.”Mignon Anderson

Mignon Anderson“If I ever met a man I loved I would marry him immediately. Of course, that’s with the understanding that he loved me equally as much. A woman should not work after marrying a man, unless it is absolutely necessary. I wouldn’t want my husband to let me work.”Mignon Anderson [Note: She was already rumored to have been married to her Thanhouser leading man, Morris Foster, in 1915.]

Mignon Anderson“There will never be a right man for me. I shall never marry….Marriage interferes with one’s work and personality. I don’t think I should care to worry about a husband. They stay out late and come home early. They’re usually missing when you need them and always around when you don’t want them. When they tell the truth you don’t believe them and when they lie you do. Their stenographers know them better than you do.”Mignon Anderson
