Marsha Mason's Quotes

  • I always felt rightly or wrongly after being a part of a marriage and a public sort of couple the whole thing sort of felt very strange here. The idea of being a single woman in Hollywood is a very peculiar thing.
  • [referring to her first film, Hot Rod Hullabaloo (1966)] I hope I won't ever find a piece of film from it.
  • I realized a lot of my own personal sense of identity was wrapped up in my work. So moving to New Mexico...what was really wonderful was I discovered the work is the work and Marsha is Marsha and a lot of various pieces make up Marsha.
  • [Interview with Andrea Chambers, June 1985] I thought I wasn't attractive or talented anymore. I cried easily and was depressed and removed. I became emotionally insecure about what the second half of my life would bring. I was angry, scared, frightened and lonely. I had thought the marriage would last forever.
