Raquel Welch's quotes

  • Being a sex symbol was rather like being a convict. The mind is an erogenous zone.
  • [In 1973] I couldn't stand that my husband was being unfaithful. I am Raquel Welch - understand?
  • Americans have always had sex symbols. It'a time-honored tradition and I'm flattered to have been one. But it's hard to have a long, fruitful career once you've been stereotyped that way. That's why I'm proud to say I've endured.
  • [on Mae West] I do think she was a spectacular talent. There's no question she was a comedic genius, but I did, in person, actually feel like she was some kind of a dockworker in drag.
  • If you have physical attractiveness, you don't have to act.
  • My father was a perfectionist. We had to hop to everything and have marvelous table manners. I could only wear navy blue and gray and white. He wanted me to be interested in tennis and horses just like a little princess, but I couldn't stand such things.
  • [In 2008] I have pictures of me at 23 or 24 and I think, "Oh my God, I was really once that size!". But actually, I think my face looks better now.
  • [on her daughter Tahnee Welch] She is much more beautiful than I was.
  • You could say a lot of things about [One Million Years B.C. (1966)], but challenging isn't one of them.
  • I still call myself an actress. I'm not an actor. I'm not a guy.
