I think the 20s are a vastly overrated decade. We promise kids that once they get out of school, life will begin and their dreams will come true. But then comes the struggle. ---->>>

You know, my hair is very upsetting to people, but it's upsetting on purpose. It is important to look old so that the young will not be afraid of dying. People don't like old women. We don't honor age in our society, and we certainly don't honor it in Hollywood. ---->>>

I went into the family business. To me, it was the norm and not the exception. ---->>>

Both my parents were actors. I was schooled to think that acting was an important social service, that it was something that human beings need. ---->>>

I am a greedy actor in the sense that I like the big bites. Put a big fat steak in front of me, and I will eat it. ---->>>

I was raised to be in service to something larger than myself. A lot of actors concentrate on what they will get out of the profession, rather than what they can offer it. The way I see it, if you come with something to offer, you can offer it forever. ---->>>

Women are usually only interesting to studio executives when they are fecund, between the ages of 15 and 30. I decided to get through the really tough patch, around 50, by just cutting my price and playing ten years older. I didn't want to have to wait until I was an old lady to play one. ---->>>

Sweat makes good friendship cement.

I don't have a waist: I'm a breadbox on top of legs. ---->>>

I do games of solitaire when I get home to quiet my spirits. ---->>>

I'm interested in playing old ladies because I am becoming one. And I want to become a very good one! ---->>>

I'm not glamorous, I don't have a look, I don't know anything about opera, I have no Italian, and I'm too old. ---->>>

Many more people saw me on TV than will ever get to see me on stage, but I do love being in the same room as the people I'm telling the story to. ---->>>

I don't take part in texting and those other things myself, so I don't really know if people put as much thought into messaging as they used to into writing letters. ---->>>

I never played the 'decoration,' I always played the one who suffered. And then I got very lucky in my middle career, when I started playing the hero, which at that point was quite rare for women. ---->>>

I'm sorry I didn't wear paint this morning. I tend not to wear it unless I'm getting highly paid. ---->>>

My job always is to play a person, not to judge her. ---->>>

My time on television began, and I started playing victims. I did about 10 or 12 years of them, which gets boring, right? ---->>>

I believe imagination to be a uniquely human gift. The reason I like my job, and have liked it for more than half a century, is that I get to use my imagination. ---->>>

I don't want people instructing me what to do with my body; I don't want the government to tell me what I can do in my bedroom, with my body, or with whoever I choose to love. ---->>>

I think mothers get a raw deal in American culture, so I've been defending them. I have three daughters, and I know that as they become mothers, they got a lot more gentle towards me! ---->>>

I wish it was possible to do the work and not have to talk about it, but it is traditional in the theater to go into the village square and bang the drum and say, 'Come see this show, come see this show.' ---->>>

In sixth and seventh grade, my two best friends and I pretended to be horses. Every day after school, we would gallop around, whinnying and stamping our hooves and tossing our manes - for hours. ---->>>

The director's job is full of all sorts of annoyances and details - like how many cars are on the street. Ugh. I don't want it. I like my gig. And I feel that for the next 30 years or so I can keep learning more about it. ---->>>

The first time I was nominated for an award for professional acting, I was in my mid-twenties. I was married and the mother of my first two daughters. I had been working for near to 15 years. ---->>>

There was this wonderful trick of going to the theater with my parents and sitting in the audience under the watchful eye of an usher, and then these other people would come on the stage: They spoke differently and had different clothes and hair. Afterward, they would come back, and they were my parents again. It was magic. ---->>>
