As far as film goes, I enjoy all Hollywood films and all Horror films like The Bride of Frankenstein, which also might be my favorite. I like 60’s and 70’s Italian and Spanish Horror films.
I had a meeting in LA in which they took a really overstuffed hour and a half. It was as close to old Hollywood as I remembered it in the last 20 years.
All of us have read the stories about young people in Hollywood and all the challenges they have to confront there, and I think that artistically, I really didn’t understand the commercial side of the film business, so I went back to a purely artistic setting.
Hollywood movies are run on fear and they don’t want to make bold choices. They, generally, speaking want to keep things status quo. That’s not really interesting for me.
I still don’t consider myself as going Hollywood. I did a movie because the opportunity presented itself and it was fun. When everything stops being fun, I’ll go onto something else.
Law students have taken over Hollywood. To them it’s all about making money. They know people want to see what they’ve seen before. Also, remakes are places to showcase the new stars of tomorrow.
In Hollywood the woods are full of people that learned to write but evidently can’t read. If they could read their stuff, they’d stop writing.
Hollywood people want to build you up and make you famous only to knock you off you’re the pedestal they built for you.
My grandfather was running Hillcrest Country Club, and that’s where a whole group of Hollywood comedians hung out.
One says also, it is one of the most faithful men in Hollywood, and makes again more interesting it equal.
I was supposed to go to drama school and then go to New York and do theatre. But I grew up on all those fabulous movies and had read all the bold Hollywood books, and I thought I just had to take a look.
I bought a house in the Hollywood Hills and brought my grandmother from Harlem to live in it with me.
In Hollywood today, it’s cool for guys to wear nail polish and earrings in their lips and tongues. I don’t get it.
I always thought the point was to have a bigger life, to meet more people. So I don’t understand Hollywood.
I’m fascinated by how Hollywood has changed since I started. Today it’s about immediate delivery. There’s less risk and less art.
People’s sex habits are as well known in Hollywood as their political opinions, and much less criticized.
Hollywood sold its stars on good looks and personality buildups. We weren’t really actresses in a true sense, we were just big names – the products of a good publicity department.
I truly believe that all power corrupts. Such is probably the thinking behind every political film ever made in Hollywood.
You know, when you don’t go on TV and talk about how many women you sleep with, some people in Hollywood, that are supposedly ‘in the know,’ start whispering that you’re gay. If I were gay, I wouldn’t be ashamed to admit it, but I’m not.
If Hollywood stars speak out, so do all sorts of other people. Now Hollywood stars can get a better hearing.
So many directors are solely focused on their own success in Hollywood and multimillion dollar budgets and deals.
After working for years in Hollywood where the actors have taken over, it was a real relief to get down there and not only have some children, but also have some actors that had no attitude.
I was raised in Hollywood and knew, from as early as grammar school, classmates who were in the business.
This summer, I’ll be bringing out a mystery that involves a young lawyer and a court scene the likes of which I don’t think you’ve ever seen. Hollywood said this is James Patterson meets John Grisham.
I think, unfortunately or fortunately, the reality of Hollywood is that if your movie makes money, they’ll make another one.
What is the thing that Hollywood demands most? Sincerity. No place in the world will pay such a high price for this admirable trait.
As the 1960s began, a new breed of Hollywood leading lady was emerging. She was elegant, international, and wonderfully comedic.
I spent an entire evening seated between Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly, being charmed from either side. It was pure Hollywood magic.
Hollywood held this double lure for me, tremendous sums of money for work that required no more effort than a game of pinochle.
I really don’t consider myself to be a conventional Hollywood star. I’ve never really been marketed by the big studios to do mass market box office films.
I don’t think the money people in Hollywood have ever thought I was normal, but I am dedicated to my work and that’s what counts.
At the time I came along, Hollywood’s idea of teen movies meant there had to be a lot of nudity, usually involving boys in pursuit of sex, and pretty gross overall. Either that or a horror movie. And the last thing Hollywood wanted in their teen movies was teenagers!
I’m sure those rumors are spread, but it’s just ah – we’re really good friend. We’ve been since day one in Hollywood. In class, we’ve been together in school. We’ve gotten really close, but I don’t know about the more than friends stuff.
Well, I was getting a lot of money then, and I wasn’t getting any Hollywood films, so I just did those. I’d always do a play in between. Whenever I ran low on funds, I’d always rush off to do a movie somewhere.
In the middle of my third Hollywood picture The Magician, the earthquake hit Hollywood. Not the real earthquake. Just the talkies.
I make movies for grownups. When Hollywood starts making them again, I’ll start acting in them again.
