Anger tears me up inside… My own… or anyone else’s.
If you get into a Broadway show and it doesn’t work you’re a failure. And if it does work you may be stuck for who knows how long. It just doesn’t sound great to me!
Well I mean if a joke or humor is bawdy it’s got to be funny enough to warrant it. You can’t just have it bawdy or dirty just for the sake of being that – it’s got to be funny.
I’m a big cockeyed optimist. I try to accentuate the positive as opposed to the negative.
I’m not what you might call sexy but I’m romantic. Let’s put it that way.
I kid around a lot but pranks are not my best strength!
I think older women still have a full life.
I think it’s your mental attitude. So many of us start dreading age in high school and that’s a waste of a lovely life. ‘Oh… I’m 30 oh I’m 40 oh 50.’ Make the most of it.
I just make it my business to get along with people so I can have fun. It’s that simple.
I’m in the acting business. That’s the ego business.
I stayed in show business to pay for my animal business.
I always wanted to be a zookeeper when I was growing up and I’ve wound up a zookeeper! I’ve been working with the Los Angeles Zoo for 45 years! I’m the luckiest old broad on two feet because my life is divided absolutely in half – half animals and half show business. You can’t ask for better than two things you love the most.
I am interested in a lot of things – not just show business and my passion for animals. I try to keep current in what’s going on in the world. I do mental exercises. I don’t have any trouble memorizing lines because of the crossword puzzles I do every day to keep my mind a little limber. I don’t sit and vegetate.
I cannot stand the people who get wonderful starts in show business and who abuse it. Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen for example although there are plenty of others too. They are the most blessed people in the world and they don’t appreciate it.
During the Depression my dad made radios to sell to make extra money. Nobody had any money to buy the radios so he would trade them for dogs. He built kennels in the backyard and he cared for the dogs.
My mother and dad were big animal lovers too. I just don’t know how I would have lived without animals around me. I’m fascinated by them – both domestic pets and the wild community. They just are the most interesting things in the world to me and it’s made such a difference in my lifetime.
