A lot of people are like, 'So you want to be famous.' And I'm like, 'No, I want to be good at my craft. I don't care about fame, I don't care if I even ever make it. As long as people know what I am as an actress in this business, I'm set for my career right now.'
Chloe Grace Moretz
There are so many glamorous actresses, but you know what? In the real world, nobody looks like that.
Most actresses are always running late - I'm no exception.
I once wanted to prove myself by being a great actress. Now I want to prove that I'm a person. Then maybe I'll be a great actress.
Personality is the most important thing to an actress's success.
Two young actresses I admire are Emma Stone and Emma Watson, because they are intelligent, talented actresses and have a great sense of humor. They have learned to balance what they love in life - acting, school and everything else.
I didn't want to be an actress. I wanted to be a dentist, but you never know what life will bring you.
I think the actresses who are really successful are the ones who are comfortable in their own skins and still look human.
In government, one actress is enough.
To be honest, I never really considered myself to be too much of an actress. So, whenever I get the chance to do music, I'm always, like, just in it. It's like, 'Oh my God, I finally get to do this. I'm so happy.'
I certainly think Halle Berry's a wonderful role model. She's a terrific stepmother and has shown that in so many beautiful ways and has made such enormous strides for women culturally and such great successes as an actress and philanthropist.
My mother was against me being an actress - until I introduced her to Frank Sinatra.
I have an older sister named Haley and she wanted to be an actress. So I wanted to be an actress. It's really funny the way that some people don't give kids enough credit for like really being driven, and really wanting to do things so badly.
I genuinely don't care about the 'number one' tag. That's not my goal. You know, no one does that with heroes, but with actresses it's the same number game. It's not a bloody pageant. Everyone has something unique to offer.
I can't imagine it if beauty was the only currency I used as an actress. It just doesn't interest me.
I don't just want to be a cute girl in a comedy or the actress who just does the same thing over and over again. I want to play roles that are distinct. I want to have a more varied career like actresses Viola Davis or Angela Bassett - those are the people that I grew up watching and admiring.
I'm an absolute fan of Angela Bassett. I think she's a great, great actress. In the biopics, she is so moving. She's very rare. It's something that doesn't happen that much, to see an actress inventing a new way of showing 'woman' onscreen, and a new way of being beautiful.
An actress is not a machine, but they treat you like a machine. A money machine.
First, I'm trying to prove to myself that I'm a person. Then maybe I'll convince myself that I'm an actress.
I want to be an artist, an actress with integrity, and that includes all kinds of parts.
I'm looking forward to becoming a marvelous - excuse the word marvelous - character actress. like Marie Dressler, like Will Rogers.
I want people to look at my films and say 'Wow, she's a good actress', and I know I'll have to work hard for that.
When I started out, I didn't have any desire to be an actress or to learn how to act. I just wanted to be famous.
There's plenty of great independent films to do, but you can't support yourself making independent film as an actress.
Show me a great actor and I'll show you a lousy husband. Show me a great actress, and you've seen the devil.
