"I had the best costars you could ever have, and I miss them so much. We had such a great time working together."
On the ups and downs in her life:
"Well, I’ve been through everything. I always said I was like those round-bottomed circus dolls—you know, those dolls you could push down and they’d come back up? I’ve always been like that. I’ve always said, 'No matter what happens, if I get pushed down, I’m going to come right back up.'”
"You have to do things, you have to step out and stick up for animals, because they can’t do anything for themselves."
On the treatment and portrayal of animals in today's movies:
"Everything’s acceptable in Hollywood now, it seems. I’m glad I’m not there, because I would be screaming. I hope and pray that the Hollywood stars who are making so much money really take a stand. It’s hideous to have families watching these movies, and children seeing this portrayed as though it’s okay."
"I want to tell the truth, and maybe that’s why they trust me. When I was acting, I believed what I said ... every line."
On the Hollywood scene:
"Party all night? Oh lord! No, no no! I don't even like parties."
On her television series:
"I never wanted to do TV, but I gave it 100 per cent anyway."
On life's difficulties:
"There were times when I wasn't always up. Everything could be calm and peaceful, then the next day the bottom dropped out. What can you do? Moan and groan and feel sorry for yourself? No, you pull yourself up by your bootstraps and you get on with life."
On her day to day philosophy:
"I love to laugh.It's the only way to live. Enjoy each day-it's not coming back again!"
"As we journey under our individual umbrellas,we should not forget we all share the same sky."
"If it's true that men are such beasts, this must account for the fact that most women are animal lovers."
On middle age:
"The really frightening thing about middle age is that you know you`ll grow out of it."
