Men are so willing to respect anything that bores them.
We are all of us stars, and we deserve to twinkle.
I don't know if high society is different in other cities, but in Hollywood, important people can't stand to be invited someplace that isn't full of other important people. They don't mind a few unfamous people being present because they make good listeners.
The time I sort of began to think I was famous, I was driving somebody to the airport, and as I came back there was this movie house, and I saw my name in lights. I pulled the car up at a distance down the street; it was too much to take up close, you know, all of a sudden. And I said, 'God, somebody's made a mistake.' But there it was, in lights.
