I'm sure it's not great fun for them, or for any parent, when their child says they want to be an actor, 'cos it's quite an uncertain business and it can be terribly hard for most actors.
It's important for moms to have alone time. However, that's the first thing that goes on a busy day. Fortunately for me, because of my job, I have to find the time to do it. At least that's the way my mind sees it.
I feel fine, I don't care who the director is. All you have to do is know what your doing - all of us - everybody in the business - that's all you ask anyone - you know your job, I know mine, let's go do it.
I have made the tough decisions, always with an eye toward the bottom line. Perhaps it's time America was run like a business.
I think that New York is not the cultural centre of America, but the business and administrative centre of American culture.
When you are asked if you can do a job, tell 'em, 'Certainly I can!' Then get busy and find out how to do it.
I was told to avoid the business all together because of the rejection. People would say to me, 'Don't you want to have a normal job and a normal family?' I guess that would be good advice for some people, but I wanted to act.
There was a period of time in America where the advertising world actually went to the housewives of America and had them write jingles that would appeal to them. It was actually brilliant marketing.
And I'm not an actress. I don't think I am an actress. I think I've created a brand and a business.
I love to promote our sport. I love grass-roots tennis. I love coaching. I love all parts of the sport. I love the business side.
Business is never so healthy as when, like a chicken, it must do a certain amount of scratching around for what it gets.
I landed a job with Roger Corman. The job was to write the English dialogue for a Russian science fiction picture. I didn't speak any Russian. He didn't care whether I could understand what they were saying; he wanted me to make up dialogue.
In America the young are always ready to give to those who are older than themselves the full benefits of their inexperience.
The whole business is built on ego, vanity, self-satisfaction, and it's total crap to pretend it's not.
God will forgive me. It's his job.
Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.
Perpetual devotion to what a man calls his business, is only to be sustained by perpetual neglect of many other things.
Since the child knew his parents would give in, he tried the same trick again and again.
I was in love with Tina Goodman since I was three and her parents came popping out of the trash cans. I think it made a big impression on me.
I got caught kissing. Like by my parents. It was so horrible. It's so embarrassing, I'm blushing.
If you give me any problem in America I can trace it down to domestic violence. It is the cradle of most of the problems, economic, psychological, educational.
It was wonderful to find America, but it would have been more wonderful to miss it.
Children are smarter than any of us. Know how I know that? I don't know one child with a full time job and children.
You do the best job you can. You take it step by step. It's hard enough to make a movie. If it works, that's great. If it means something beyond the moment to somebody, they can take it and it lasts through the years, we'll see.
