Linda Hunt's Quotes

  • Everybody either wanted to take care of me or push me around, you know? I was teased a lot, sure I was, of course. Fourth grade, fifth grade, sixth grade, everybody was taking their spurts except me. I was not growing up.
  • When I was 16, nobody else talked like me. Nobody else sounded like me.
  • What's it like being opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger? For me? Are you kidding? Maybe if I'm lucky, come up to his navel!
  • When I was growing up, particularly during puberty in my teen years, I was so miserable because I elicited so much teasing and meanness from my teenage cohorts.
  • I can't be a man. But I can embrace the head of a man, the intelligence of a man, the spirit of a man.
