Nina Foch's quotes

  • Believe it or not, teaching is the most rewarding thing I do. It has been the most successful thing I've done in my life.
  • [on her father] He hated my mother sufficiently, my mother hated him.
  • [on her Oscar nomination for Executive Suite (1954)] I don't think my performance was that good, but I felt that it wasn't fair to put Eva Marie Saint in supporting. Not that I think I would have won.
  • [2007] I've been busy in my career and all my life. But I think the biggest thing I've done in life is teach. Breaking down every scene, every line, every beat, and putting the piece together. That's my contribution.
  • Now if I'd been a little more ambitious and not so sure I was nothing, the unattractive daughter of a beautiful woman and a distinguished man, I could have fought harder, and I would have gotten further.
  • [on her entry into the studio system] I had to do something. I didn't really have a home . . . I was a pitiful child, an unloved child.
  • You have a choice. You either get afraid, or you get so afraid that you're angry. It is that anger, that rage, that saved my life, I think.
  • You know what Einstein said? "Happiness is for cattle." You're not supposed to be happy, you're supposed to feel that you've achieved something.
  • I should have been directing all along, that I should have been doing. Nobody would let me, because I was a woman.
  • I've always been an outsider. In America, I've been a European. In Europe, I'm an American. On Broadway, I was from Hollywood; in Hollywood, I was from Broadway.
  • I wasn't very happy at Columbia. I didn't like Harry Cohn and his ilk. They wished I was prettier, had luscious lips and big tits, but I didn't. But when you were under contract to a studio, you were stuck.
  • [on many roles of hers] Real tough broads... Poor me, I'm a nice lady, with children and a home, but I play castrating broads.
  • [on The Ten Commandments (1956)] I felt it was important to work with Cecil B. DeMille and I'm glad I did. I learned a lot from him about discipline . . . He and I got along simply great.
