More From Ellen Barkin
- "I’m not limited by my gender, and I don’t think anyone else should be either. Because I am the age I am and I sort of rode the crest of the first profound post-suffragette feminists, I wasn’t fighting to burn my bra. Those women fought that fight just seconds before I came into womanhood."
- "It is clear I was never the Pretty Girl. I had my two front teeth knocked out when I was 10 and didn’t fix them until I was 19. I have a crooked smile and a nose that looks like it’s been broken 12 times but never has been. My nose was always red, so people called me Rudolph. My whole face is off-center."
- "Skinniness is not your friend when you’re over 40. I’d like to gain a good 10 pounds, but I did always have a fat, round face that plagued me when I was young. When I started to make movies, I couldn’t look at myself."
More In Respect
- "People always love and respect characters who speak the truth, even if the truth hurts."― David Duchovny
- "I work on words quite separately to music. They’re both ongoing, and I don’t ever feel like I’m working in a cycle in that respect, because it’s every day anyway, no matter what I’m doing. Then I get to a point when I’ve collected together enough words that seem like they want to be songs rather than poems, or sometimes not."― P. J. Harvey
- "Because of my tremendous respect for Bob Barker and for the show’s high standards of professionalism I consider this a tremendous honor that few announcers have ever been treated to. Both Rod’s and Johnny’s shoes are huge; I can’t think about filling them."― Randy West
