Enjoy these Actress Quotes from some of the most famous Actresses ever.

Take a look at Actors Quotes Part 2

Acting gave me the opportunity to do outrageous things. It allowed me to be sad, happy, angry and lustful even if it was just vicariously.
--Joan Allen

I was so lucky. I was very broke and I was taking classes at Lee Strasberg's Institute and I saw a 3 X 5 index card on the bulletin board advertising for college-aged girls for a film. That was Animal House.
--Karen Allen

As far as pacing the shoot is concerned, I know when I've got it. I don't think there's any reason to take ten takes unless you need them.
--Debbie Allen

I took an acting class for 10 seconds before I played a lead in a student movie. I showed the film to an agent who said he would send me on interviews but wouldn't sign me.
--Kirstie Alley

And I'm not an actress. I don't think I am an actress. I think I've created a brand and a business.
--Pamela Anderson

As a brunette, I had previously been this serious actress. Then I became a blonde and got to play a completely different, comic role.
--Loni Anderson

Actors are trusting souls, and we must go by gut-level instinct, even after our agents and business managers weigh all the odds.
--Anne Archer

After being in the business for such a long time, I've done everything but rodeo and porno.
--Bea Arthur

I think your whole life shows in your face and you should be proud of that.
--Lauren Bacall

I am quite surprised, that with all my work, and some of it is very, very good, that nobody talks about The Miracle Worker. We're talking about Mrs. Robinson. I understand the world... I'm just a little dismayed that people aren't beyond it yet.
--Anne Bancroft

Acting is like a high wire act. Your margin for error is very slim.
--Christine Baranski

Acting is a matter of giving away secrets.
--Ellen Barkin

For an actress to be a success, she must have the face of a Venus, the brains of a Minerva, the grace of Terpsichore, the memory of a MaCaulay, the figure of Juno, and the hide of a rhinoceros.
--Ethel Barrymore

I feel there are two people inside me - me and my intuition. If I go against her, she'll screw me every time, and if I follow her, we get along quite nicely.
--Kim Basinger

I always have to sort of fall in love with my characters. When I work on these characters, I just try to make them very real and grounded in the world. It's just the regular work that I do on a character with the director, trying to find out who this woman is and what's her backstory.
--Kathy Bates

There is always one person on the set who has a lot of anxiety, an actor who is really intense and has to stay in character and holds himself away from the rest of us.
--Maria Bello

Acting is not about being famous, it's about exploring the human soul.
--Annette Bening

Hollywood is like Picasso's bathroom.
--Candice Bergen

Here's the thing - you can't be careful about what you pick because what looks like on paper is going to be a great script has often turned out to be a disaster, so there's no way to know what's going to work or to pick the right thing.
--Halle Berry

It's hard to keep a play alive moment-to-moment, you know? But there's another part of it that I really love, which is that you never know.
--Lorraine Bracco

I do like to work with young directors because it's such a difficult business that I think after directors have been around a while sometimes, not always, but sometimes their passion gets siphoned off because they get hurt.
--Ellen Burstyn

If you make films, you're changing rhythm the whole time. You go from a quiet life to an absolutely turbulent life which is typical of moviemaking. And then you get back to your normal life and you have to have nerves of steel.
--Geraldine Chaplin

If it's true that men are such beasts, this must account for the fact that most women are animal lovers.
--Doris Day

Acting should be bigger than life. Scripts should be bigger than life. It should all be bigger than life.
--Bette Davis

If you risk nothing, then you risk everything.
--Geena Davis

I didn't care about being the 'star.' I just wanted to make a living and have a consistent career.
--Angie Dickinson

I enjoy doing independent films more, only because there's more freedom. There's not as many cooks tampering with what you are trying to do.
--Illeana Douglas

As an actress, it appeals to me because I love the idea of playing those in-between moments, the sort of behavioral stuff that one might not normally see.
--Julia Louis-Dreyfus

So many people are called but few serve as actors, you know what I mean?
--Faye Dunaway

I often say the last role I played that really touched me and where I was able to access what I really am was Bonnie, which is kind of sad when you think how early in my career that was.

--Dakota Fanning

I get it now; I didn't get it then. That life is about losing and about doing it as gracefully as possible... and enjoying everything in between.
--Mia Farrow

I joined the Actors Studio and began to work with Lee Strasberg, and that changed my work.
--Sally Field

As actors, the thing we have to fight, more than even the business part of making movies, is boredom.
--Linda Fiorentino

As you get older, the pickings get slimmer, but the people don't.
--Carrie Fisher

My interest in acting was overwhelming, but I wasn't thinking, "I'm going to California and I'm going to become a movie star." Things were different then. I lived just for the moment, and whatever happened, happened.
--Louise Fletcher

I'm an assistant storyteller. It's like being a waiter or a gas-station attendant, but I'm waiting on six million people a week, if I'm lucky.
--Jane Fonda

But the reason I became, why I wanted to be in the business was because there was Midnight Cowboy.
--Jodie Foster

I don't understand people who like to work and talk about it like it was some sort of goddamn duty. Doing nothing feels like floating on warm water to me. Delightful, perfect.

Acting is a nice childish profession - pretending you're someone else and, at the same time, selling yourself.

I'm afraid of being lazy and complacent. I'm afraid of taking myself too seriously.
--Barbara Hershey

If there's a message, it's that the unlovable and unattractive parts of ourselves should be embraced. The only real currency between people is what happens when they're not cool. And I hope people feel OK about not being cool.
--Helen Hunt

It's hard for me to get good work. You don't see me more because it's hard for me to find stuff that I want to do. I would love to work more-I really would-but there is not a lot of stuff around and the stuff that is around is not very complicated; it tends to lie a little flat.
--Holly Hunter

I like it when you read a script and there's the part that you show to the other characters and then there's the part that only the audience knows.
--Anjelica Huston

I don't believe in guilt, I believe in living on impulse as long as you never intentionally hurt another person, and don't judge people in your life. I think you should live completely free.
--Angelina Jolie

I just have to keep going back to the core and think that we're all afraid of it and when we're afraid of it, you run to something much easier, something that looks like candy.
--Diane Keaton

I have a hard time visualizing anything, which is why I'm not a director, and which is why I try to work with ones I know have a strong idea in mind.
