Adrienne Barbeau's quotes

  • Who knew at the time? It's the same as my horror films. It's wonderful at this point in my career to realize there are pieces of work that have sustained themselves all this time. I'll run into people who say, "We watch Swamp Thing (1982) once a month!".
  • [on her role in The Cannonball Run (1981)]: All the talent I needed was in my breastbone.
  • [on the remake The Fog (2005)]: I have not seen it and I have no desire to see it, either.
  • [In describing Bea Arthur as a private lady, in real-life]: She wasn't interested in the notoriety. She wasn't interested in celebrity. She was interested in making people laugh and doing good work.
  • [on the death of Bea Arthur in 2009]: I loved her dearly, and I think she loved me.
  • I never thought of myself as a sex symbol. And again, when you look at my roles, maybe the character was sexy because that's the way she looked. But that wasn't what was being portrayed. I wasn't playing those types of characters.
