“It’s not Hollywood that’s to blame — it’s the individual. No one has to be changed unless he’s weak enough to want to be changed. If you’re looking for it you can find the same type of bad influence in New York, or Chicago, or San Francisco, or in any other city in the world. But if it’s found in Hollywood everybody blames it on the picture business which goes down for a count of 10.” — Rochelle Hudson in 1935.
“It’s a little late to become excited over my career. I’m glad to be in the money. Yet I refuse to be dazzled by the prospects of stardom. The glamour’s okay so long as there’s the weekly paycheck.” — Rochelle Hudson
