It's easy to fool the eye but it's hard to fool the heart.
I'm so shy now I wear sunglasses everywhere I go.
The truth is, you know, we need our anodynes. You know that word, anodynes? We need that in life some times. A good warm bath can be one for you, or a whatever.
The hardest thing about being famous is that people are always nice to you. You're in a conversation and everybody's agreeing with what you're saying - even if you say something totally crazy. You need people who can tell you what you don't want to hear.
My dad was in the army. World War II. He got his college education from the army. After World War II he became an insurance salesman. Really, I didn't know my dad very well. He and my mother split up after the war. I was raised by my maternal grandmother and grandfather, and by my mother.

Money makes your life easier. If you're lucky to have it, you're lucky.
Vanity is my favourite sin.

I've never liked the recognition, the questions, the publicity. I have often felt like running away and hiding.
