Elizabeth Mcgovern's quotes

  • [on work other than acting] I probably would have become a veterinarian, or I might have lived on a ranch somewhere and raised horses, or I might have become more serious about painting, or I might have worked in a Burger King.
  • Honestly, I am always shocked when I see myself in the mirror because I feel exactly the same as I did when I was 18 getting off the plane to go to Juilliard in New York.
  • There is nothing in my life where I view myself as a 1920s person.
  • I turned down the opportunity to be in some films that went on to be blockbusters.
  • My job now is to work hard and learn all I can.
  • I just find it fascinating, like everybody, to be in a different life. It's an escape.
  • Hollywood never suited me, I didn't ever feel comfortable with it, it took me a couple of years but I found where I was always meant to be... Chiswick!
  • I still feel I'm doing the same work I've always done.
  • Most people grow up dreaming of going to Hollywood and some of them work and work and work and finally end up in Hollywood.
  • Whenever I work on anything, there's always the fantasy that what one is doing is the next 'Citizen Kane'-slash-'Sopranos.'
  • If I feel I can play a part I do everything in my power to try to play it.
  • We lack rituals in this modern world.
  • I'm someone who's done the opposite of whatever the received wisdom is, to keep your career going into your 50s.
  • In London, I take the Tube everywhere.
  • To me, the lyrics of the song define the kind of style it is.
  • I love having the opportunity to explore a part for a great length of time, really get deeper and deeper into it, because you only have a chance to do that once or twice in a career.
  • I've been in things that have impressed people and they've come up to congratulate you but in a kind of, you-must-think-you're-really-special way.
  • As far as I can see women who have facelifts don't look younger, just weirder. You see them on screen with these tight, little porcelain faces - then the hand goes up to the face and it looks like it belongs to an alien. I find it really freaky.
  • I miss sometimes the buzz of America. A sense that anything can change at the drop of a hat. In a way, it's an exhausting thing to live with.
  • I wasn't ecstatic about being pregnant - I wasn't somebody who actively wanted kids. Certainly there were no fantasies about nappy-changing.
  • North Hollywood isn't actually Hollywood, it's in the San Fernando Valley... it's not the most glamorous part of L.A.
  • My father was an academic, an eccentric. He was a lecturer.
  • So the English approach to show business and their work is more - and this is a big generalization, I hasten to say - but it's more, they work on it as a craft job.
  • I've found acting on stage much more challenging than on screen.
  • My family were all into classical music, and I found that very intimidating.
  • England as a culture has endured so much more than America has as a culture, so it's given them a different perspective.
  • By definition, an actor's life is a recipe for regret. There are always roads you could have taken. But I've lived long enough to realize that each road has its own rewards.
  • I have a terrible sense of direction.
  • Well, when I moved to England I was making a lot of personal adjustments because I was getting married and starting a family, that sort of thing.
  • I've got my private life - that's sacred - and I didn't have that before.
  • Well, I have a band, "Sadie and the Hotheads", and we have an album that is already out that is available on our website.
  • Now we have to contend with overstimulation and too many opportunities all the time, and too many decisions all the time.
  • I like writing letters and receiving letters. It's a shame that we've lost the art of letter-writing and saving correspondence. I mourn that.
  • That feeling of being 19 or 20 and 'hot' in Hollywood was so intense.
  • I can't just sit around thinking how lucky I am.
  • It's peaceful for people to know how their lives are going to be, pretty much.
  • I don't believe in villains - just people who channel their energy in the wrong way.
  • It's very tough when two creative people are together.
  • In today's world, we all live with the burden of feeling that anything is possible if we're only clever enough, smart enough, work hard enough.
  • I had reconciled myself to being happily out to pasture, a bit.
