“Career is too pompous a word.
It was a job, and I have always
felt privileged to be paid for
what I love doing.”
“I knew that after fourteen I’d have to earn my
own living, but I was willing to do that. I’ve
always been a little sorry for pampered people,
and of course, they’re ‘very’ sorry for me.”
Barbara Stanwyck, 1937
“Attention embarrasses me.
I don’t like to be on display.”
“I’m a tough old broad from Brooklyn. I intend
to go on acting until I’m ninety and they won’t
need to paste my face with make-up.”
