Natalie Wood's quotes

  • You get tough in this business, until you get big enough to hire people to get tough for you. Then you can sit back and be a lady.
  • In so many ways I think it's a bore to be sorry you were a child actor - so many people feel sorry for you automatically. At the time, I wasn't aware of the things I missed, so why should I think of them in retrospect? Everybody misses something or other.
  • [on being a child actor] I spent practically all my time in the company of adults. I was very withdrawn, very shy, I did what I was told and I tried not to disappoint anybody. I knew I had a duty to perform, and I was trained to follow orders.
  • [shortly before her death] You know what I want? I want yesterday.
  • [on Elvis Presley] There was nothing serious between Elvis and me, nothing at all.
  • I've always been terrified, still am, of water -- dark water, sea water, or, you know, river water.
  • [on Marilyn Monroe] When you look at Marilyn on the screen, you don't want anything bad to happen to her. You really care that she should be all right... happy.
  • [on remarrying Robert Wagner] Sometimes, it's better to have the devil you know than the devil you don't.
  • My life has been sort of reversed. I was working when other girls were going to school and when other women were reaching the age when they wanted careers, I was most interested in staying home.
  • If it weren't for analysis, I'd probably be dead.
  • I think there's a big difference between taking one Seconal at night to go to sleep, and abusing drugs. I mean, first of all, it was prescribed for me by my doctor. And I never took more than that. I've never been on drugs in my life.
  • I hate the ocean, I hate the water. I can't swim and I don't like to be around it.
