Even after 'Gangster' being a success, I was considered a B-grade actress and was a sidekick, even though I was good at what I did, and was jobless for two years.
Kristen Bell is rare as an actress, because she's the type of actor who jumps out of a plane without a parachute - from a totally fearless place, which is really refreshing and inspiring.
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.
Most actresses are always running late - I'm no exception.
An actress is not a machine, but they treat you like a machine. A money machine.
Dreaming about being an actress, is more exciting then being one.
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.
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.
W. C. Fields
I have to work extra hard because I am dyslexic. People said that I couldn't be an actress, but I'm proving them wrong. Acting has helped me overcome the challenge.
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 would say that Emma Stone and Emma Watson are two very talented young actresses who are very intelligent and have a great sense of humor and have learned to balance what they love with their acting career, and I think that's really a great thing.
I don't think anyone has the right to intrude in your life, but they do. I would like people to separate the actress and the woman.
Until 45 I can play a woman in love. After 55 I can play grandmothers. But between those ten years, it is difficult for an actress.
My career is as an actress. I am an actress playing a comedienne.
As an actress, emotions are my business, my stock-in-trade. As such, I've dealt with them nearly all my life.
There's something about an American soldier you can't explain. They're so grateful for anything, even a film actress coming to see them.
I became an actress because my mom wanted me to become an actress. It took me until my mid-30s to realize I actually didn't. I actually wanted to write and direct and be more involved in politics and humanitarian issues.
I had no desire to be an film actress, to always play somebody else, to be always beautiful with somebody constantly straightening out your every eyelash. It was always a big bother to me.
I have a lot of friends who do what I do. Either they're actresses or singers or things like that.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
