Personal Quotes (4)

Nobody who makes anything can tell someone else exactly how they do it, because they don't really know themselves.
My father was my father. His well-known-ness was something separate from that. It had no reality for me. That Arthur Miller was like a shadow person. So the only time I think about it now is when I am doing interviews and people ask me about it. Otherwise, I feel totally disconnected from that line of thought.
I hope that as I build a body of work, that tendency to connect me with my father in particular will diminish. Already, it varies from country to country. In Britain, my father was very important. Not that he wasn't in the States, but somehow, it seems to matter more here.
Thank God my movies were flops. If I had become a movie star that would have been a personal disaster. Friends wondered what the hell I was doing at that time because acting seemed so out of character. But I knew I wasn't suited to it. I don't like my face being the focus.
