Kathy Bates's Quotes

  • The Oscar changed everything. Better salary, working with better people, better projects, more exposure, less privacy.
  • [on losing the role of Frankie, which had been written for her by playwright Terrence McNally, to Michelle Pfeiffer in the movie version of "Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune"] I thought it was wonderful to see a love story about people over forty, ordinary people who were trying to connect. We haven't seen it before, and I don't think we will see it with this movie Frankie and Johnny (1991).
  • [on playing Terry Bradshaw's movie wife in Failure to Launch (2006)] When I was told Terry Bradshaw would be playing my husband, I was like "The star-quarterback Terry Bradshaw?".
  • I was never an ingรฉnue. I've always just been a character actor. When I was younger, it was a real problem, because I was never pretty enough. It was hard, not just for the lack of work, but because you have to face up to how people are looking at you.
  • My mother used to tell this corny story about how the doctor smacked me on the behind when I was born and I thought it was applause, and I have been looking for it ever since.
