“I don’t believe that the people would really have any interest in seeing me in pictures. They came to the Metropolitan to hear me sing, but if I should lose my voice overnight, do you think they would still come to see me? No! And they would make unkind remarks, too; I am afraid I […]

“For a long time, I tried to live up to something that was in people’s minds. I don’t know what it is they want, nor do they, but movie stars fulfill some lack in people’s lives. What I realized long ago is that any time people put you on a pedestal, you’re doomed to disappoint. […]

“I know I’m not pretty. I cannot make a place for myself on the screen as a beauty. I am not even an exciting person. There is, therefore, only one thing left. I must be an actress. And the more variety I can get, the more they will think of me as a capable actress.” […]
