I don't mean to insult television, but a lot of the time, it's pretty straightforward. If you say, 'I love you,' you mean 'I love you.' There isn't time for anything more.
I used to love people for what they could be. I thought love was how hard you tried and how much you sacrificed and suffered. That is not love. Acceptance is.
I was certainly typecast for a while on television because I was always being cast as the 'compassionate mother' or whatever.
I never had a driving ambition to be a star.
When I was a girl, my grandmother would take me during the holidays to see the windows at Saks and Rockefeller Center.
I got married at 17, had three kids by the time I was 24, and have never had much time alone. I never had time to develop hobbies. Now, if I have nothing to do, I just find myself cleaning drawers incessantly.
As an actor, one of my greatest fears is losing my memory.
All of us from 'The Waltons' still love each other. I think we're closer than some real families.
For a long time, I resisted seeing 'The Sound of Music,' but when I finally did, I cried.
I am not one of those actresses who loves acting.
I used to pride myself on the fact that I kept a house running and never burdened anybody.
I'm grateful that I have a theater career because television isn't kind to you when you're over forty.
If you care about what you do, you don't want to let people down.
I got married very young and put my career on the back burner for the most part because that's what you did in those days. I've never been a pushy, ambitious type of person anyway.
Nobody can understand the pressures of doing an hour-long TV show unless you've done one. Even when you're not on call, you still are working, learning lines, doing appearances, just tense.
