Ann Sothern's quotes

  • Good night . . . and stay happy.
  • [on her long-time friend Lucille Ball and her second series, The Ann Sothern Show (1958)] Lucy used to complain that she got all the parts I turned down. Now I produce the show, and she owns the studio. I guess that settles that.
  • Listen, I never asked to be in show business. It was my mother's idea.
  • People never think of me as a singer. But singers aren't always good actresses, and, thank goodness, they think of me as an actress.
  • [on her co-stars in The Whales of August (1987)] Lillian [Lillian Gish] is a person first and then a movie star. Bette [Bette Davis] is a movie star.
  • I only like character parts. I never wanted to be a leading woman.
  • [on her Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer contract years] You didn't have to walk to the set. There was always a limousine. I never thought you stopped making money and grew old.
  • I love Lucille (Ball), and I know she loves me. Furthermore, I'm one of the few people who call her Lucille. I understand her. A lot people think she is tough. But that's just her way. She's soft inside.
