The secret of a long life is to never trust a doctor.
Take a person like Julia Roberts: she does what she wants.
One of the biggest dangers in Hollywood is becoming typed.
One can be more than once in love – that’s the most important thing.
Once, I was a bigger star than Greta Garbo.
In my acting, I have tried to do this – to present to audiences a living creature in whom they can recognise themselves or someone they know.
I would much rather be a bad Luise Rainer than a second someone else.
I was very thin, like a boy, and I was very un-sexy.
I was one of the horses of the Louis B. Mayer stable, and I thought the films I was given after my Academy Awards were not worthy.
I should have done more. I did too little of everything.
I remember once Robert Taylor invited me to lunch. I asked him, ‘What is your ambition?’ He said, ‘I want to have 10 very good suits.’
I know the good from the bad, also the in-between, but I was never political.
I had immense ambition to become a really valuable actress.
I felt very alone in Hollywood.
I feel best in nature or near nature.
