Anne Reid's quotes

  • I still just love acting! Most of us agree it's like a child's game, really; doesn't seem like a serious job at all. I love doing comedy.
  • [on being awarded the MBE in June 2010] Thrilled and delighted and amazed.
  • I don't trust journalists as far as I can throw them. My family were all in newspapers.
  • As you get older the phone stops ringing, which is inevitable because people stop asking for you.
  • Newspapers are much more intrusive today. People discuss their intimate sex lives in detail. I wouldn't. Well, I have nothing to talk about.
  • I don't want to be immodest, but I'm pretty versatile - I can do comedy as well as drama. A teacher at RADA told me I'd have difficulty because I don't fit into a particular slot.
  • Acting is enormous fun. I work extremely hard, but I'm not going to sit here and be solemn. It's a weird way to earn a living. None of us are grown-up.
  • I'd rather have an an Oscar and a million pounds than be a dame.
  • I love comfort television beautifully done - Poirot [Poirot (1989)], Foyle's War (2002), Miss Marple [Marple (2004)].
  • Theatre is nerve-racking, but you have to put yourself through it, like training for an athlete. It sorts out the men from the boys.
  • Friends think I'm insane doing a cabaret show of stories and songs about my life, but I've talked about it for 30 years.
  • Singing makes me feel good even though I don't have a great voice.
  • Some people thought I regretted being in Coronation Street (1960). I didn't, but it became tedious when the show was all anyone wanted to talk about because it was so famous. I haven't seen it for years. I don't watch soaps.
  • I love to socialise, but also to be on my own. I don't think I've ever been lonely. I sit and think - there's always something going on in my head - or play my piano.
