A career is wonderful, but you can't curl up with it on a cold night. An actress is not a machine, but they treat you like a machine. A money machine. Before marriage, a girl has to make love to a man to hold him. After marriage, she has to hold him to make love to him. Dogs never bite me. Just humans. Dreaming about being an actress, is more exciting then being one. Fame will go by and, so long, I've had you, fame. If it goes by, I've always known it was fickle. So at least it's something I experience, but that's not where I live. First, I'm trying to prove to myself that I'm a person. Then maybe I'll convince myself that I'm an actress. Hollywood is a place where they'll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss and fifty cents for your soul. Husbands are chiefly good as lovers when they are betraying their wives. I am invariably late for appointments - sometimes as much as two hours. I've tried to change my ways but the things that make me late are too strong, and too pleasing. I am involved in a freedom ride protesting the loss of the minority rights belonging to the few remaining earthbound stars. All we demanded was our right to twinkle. I don't know who invented high heels, but all women owe him a lot. I don't mind living in a man's world as long as I can be a woman in it. I don't mind making jokes, but I don't want to look like one. I've been on a calendar, but I've never been on time. My work is the only ground I've ever had to stand on. I seem to have a whole superstructure with no foundation but I'm working on the foundation. No one ever told me I was pretty when I was a little girl. All little girls should be told they're pretty, even if they aren't. There was my name up in lights. I said, 'God, somebody's made a mistake.' But there it was, in lights. And I sat there and said, 'Remember, you're not a star.' Yet there it was up in lights. To put it bluntly, I seem to have a whole superstructure with no foundation. But I'm working on the foundation.
