Bonnie Hunt's quotes

  • [on being one of seven children] It's great because when you go home you're the person you were in sixth grade!
  • [when asked if she ever dated David Letterman] We never dated. We slept together, but we never dated.
  • I won't wear fur-never, ever. I'm an animal lover. I wouldn't even wear faux fur. I prefer to go the cheap route and not shave my legs.
  • I love talking to people and finding out their opinion.
  • If I've learned one thing in life, it's: Stand for something or you'll fall for anything.
  • I don't understand the rewarding of behavior that is less than classy. I don't get it.
  • I still have my bad days when I think I'm not getting everything I deserve. But those pass quickly once my mother gets on the phone and says, 'listen, we used to eat rocks and walk 80 miles a day to school'.
  • But I'm thrilled to be employed, and to work with all my friends and people that I admire. You're just lucky to work - that's the bottom line.
  • Would I like to be the lead girl? Who wouldn't?
  • When you fail by your own standards, it's a form of success.
  • Hollywood is what you make it; you have to choose company with care because you become what they are.
  • I don't think this is the end of Oprah, it's only the beginning. I have a feeling that she'll probably have her own station, and continue to do what she does.
  • I was a good kid.
  • I've been so fortunate in my career and my own life just to have all these opportunities, and the talk show has always been one of my favorite formats.
  • I don't know if I realized that I was funny, but I realized how healing and important humor was in my childhood.
  • Everybody knows when you're a struggling family; you don't really know it when you're a kid. But you do know the difference between stress and moments of relief where there's, like, this happiness.
  • I grew up in a working-class neighborhood, so there was always a sense of struggle, but we had hope.
  • I don't write punch lines.
  • I thought of school as a captive audience. It gave me a chance to work on my material.
  • I'm right on the edge of getting another movie. It's between me and a famous person. The studio said they're thinking about going with somebody with a name. I said, 'That's great! Because I have one!'
  • All my brothers and sisters are really witty, and I would just sit back and enjoy them.
  • Improvisation, if you play it at the top of your intelligence, leads to a kind of truth that people find really accessible.
  • If I couldn't be Dick Van Dyke, I wanted to be Art Carney.
  • Humor is very healing.
  • My home is in Chicago, but I have an apartment in Los Angeles.
  • In my neighborhood growing up, 8, 10,12 kids were the norm. Those stay-at-home moms would handle so much physically and emotionally. Even in my early teens, I could tell those ladies were something.
  • When I first landed at Pixar, I felt like I found this creative oasis with John Lasseter... It's what you thought Hollywood was going to be.

  • I wanted to be a story teller so badly.
  • I like regular meals and restaurants that will adapt things to your taste. Not a place where they roll their eyes if you want the sauce on the side.
  • The thing about Pixar, they don't do the 'trend is your friend.' They're really about timeless story telling, and that's pretty great.
  • Restaurants in Chicago are seldom disappointing.
  • Anything Pixar does, you know, I really just am in awe of them and thrilled to be included in anything they do.
  • Carl Reiner is perfection.
  • I love writing.
  • Everywhere I go, people think I'm Helen Hunt.
  • I am a storyteller, and I take great pride in the storytelling and a great joy.
  • My mother gets told, 'Oh, you're so lucky that your daughters are doing so well.' She never corrects anybody when they assume Helen ('Helen Hunt') is her daughter.
  • When a fan holds out Helen's picture for me to autograph, I usually sign it Linda Hunt - just to make their heads really crazy.
  • If you're authentic, people smile because they sense there's a piece of themselves there.
  • I thought of Second City as just the greatest therapeutic job anybody could ever dream of having.
  • I'm trying to be truthful.
  • I am on the phone with my sisters every day.

  • I don't think of myself as a comedian.
  • I only have one job, and that's being a storyteller.
  • Everyone hopes to get a fall slot, but I'm just happy to get on the air.
  • It's not that I don't take TV seriously. I take it very seriously. But I've got my priorities straight. Call it my extra gift. Without it, I would be devastated every day in Hollywood.
  • I keep saying I won't go back to television, but I do.
  • I worked at a nursing home though high school... There's a lost appreciation for a generation that has so much to tell us when we're so full of self-help books and doctors on TV.
  • I have a great affinity for senior citizens.
  • You gain a certain maturity from being a nurse in a cancer ward.
  • I'm from an Irish Catholic family.
  • I would hope to have some of the same audience that Oprah has earned. And I would love to earn that, as well.
  • When the Pixar people call, you jump at the opportunity.
  • There were seven kids in our family. My mom had seven kids in 10 years. So you had to learn how to talk and think fast if you wanted to be heard.
  • There's nothing funnier than religion. Try explaining it to a kid. I had it all wrong when I was a kid.

  • I'm a blue-collar Chicago girl raised on wonderful movies my mom took us to, ones that had a lot of heart.
  • Not only do people stop me on the street to say, 'We're walking, we're walking', but I have actually been in restaurants where the hostess was saying it to customers.
  • My dad was a man of great wisdom in his short time here.
  • I don't have the fear I won't be able to think of something else to write. It's what I do.
  • My only power is my ability to do something with passion and do it well. It's also something someone cannot take way from me, so it's very valuable.
  • When you're the mom in a big family comedy, you have to get your personality when you can.
  • I don't have the fear of my looks changing.
  • If an executive producer has written a certain line, and an actress says it, and it's not very funny, you don't dare go to them and say, 'I don't like this,' because it will make your life miserable.
  • To have children on the set, you realize that if a 10-year-old can do it, who are you kidding? It humbles you.
  • I think you have to see the high highs and the low lows to get to the core of what makes us tick as people.
  • Over the years, if you look at the films of people like Billy Wilder, Preston Sturges, Frank Capra, their supporting characters, even if it's a doorman with two lines, always seem three-dimensional. To me, that's a sign of good storytelling.
  • I loved when my folks would watch The Dean Martin Show (1965).
  • Barry Levinson saw me on a tape and put me in Rain Man (1988) as the waitress who dropped the toothpicks. The scene was talked about a lot. Then, all of a sudden, I started to get more auditions
  • What kind of woman irons her husband's sheets? Even the clothes I wear, I just throw 'em in the dryer with some golf balls.
  • I think what happens is that some writers, who are so great in television or whatever, once they become successful, they get out of the loop of real life. It's real hard to draw on something to write.
  • I lived in an apartment near Wrigley Field.
