Barbara Windsor's Quotes

  • It's amazing, fantastic. It's spot on and absolutely sensational. - On her Madame Tussaud's wax works model
  • We didn't get a lot of money and we did always seem to be doing outside shots in winter but it paid the mortgage and I loved it. - On her Carry On movies
  • In my late 40s I found it difficult at casting interviews because people would still think I was as young as I appeared in the Carry Ons. I would go for a part that was my age but they would have seen Carry On Camping the night before and say I was far too young.
  • [Speaking about Joan Sims in 2001 at the time of her death] "To me she was the last of the great Carry Ons. She was there at the beginning. Her talent was wonderful, she could do any accent, dialect, she could dance, sing, play dowdy and glam. We laughed all the time and giggled a lot. I will sorely miss her."
  • On not having children: I don't have any regrets about not having kids. I've just never had those maternal feelings. I am a nurturer by nature, but I nurture adults: my friends, the people I work with. I don't want to nurture children.
