Jami Gertz's Quotes

  • [in a 1987 interview] Most of the parts I've played have been passive girls who are just sort of there. I have trouble with that because I'm not like that and being passive gets you in big trouble personally. It's not the kind of quality that young girls should be looking up to.
  • I'm at a time in my life where I'm so filled up that I don't want more.
  • There have been times when I've been in the bathroom and someone that saw me come in and says, "Can you spare a square?"
  • Endless Love was really the first time I ever did a movie, and I remember Brooke Shields just being so sweet to me.
  • I kind of missed out on part of high school. Like, my junior and senior year. And I didn't go to college, really, so I kind of missed out on all of that. Sixteen Candles was just my way to be at a big high-school party.
