Sally Field's quotes

  • My agent said, "You aren't good enough for movies." I said, "You're fired."
  • When I was born, the doctor looked at my mother and said, "Congratulations, you have an actor!"
  • My country is still so repressed. Our idea of what is sexual is blonde hair, long legs, 22 years old. It has nothing to do with humour, intelligence, warmth, everything to do with teeth and cleavage.
  • Norma Rae (1979) is inspirational because it's the type of film where one person can be heard.
  • Forrest Gump (1994) is filled full of moments where your heart just cheers.
  • [on Burt Reynolds] What I look for mostly in a man is humor, honesty and a mustache. Burt has all three.
  • [on James Garner] If men only knew what's appealing to a woman is how a man makes her feel about herself. Jim is funny and dear and he laughs at my jokes. That's what makes Jim sexy; it doesn't change with years.
  • [on the death of Bea Arthur] She just was great and I wish I could have that kind of longevity of greatness.
  • There are not a lot of places for an actor to explore what it's like to be a woman in her 60s. There aren't any films about it and there very few TV series about it.
  • [on trying her hand at golf] I would go to all these locations and think ... why don't I play golf? People walk around and enjoy God, God's gifts, the trees, so I think I've always thought I should have that in my life.
  • Being a mom is everything. It's mentorship, it's inspirational, its our hope for the future.
  • Having a long-term career is really about how to ride it and not be rigid. Keep asking yourself "What really blows my skirts up?" To me, it's finding the work.
  • What appealed to me about Sister Bertrille and The Flying Nun (1967)? I tell you the truth. Nothing. Nothing. I didn't want to do it.
  • I believe if you have the money, couples should have separate bedrooms. There's something unnatural about sleeping in the same bed, dressing in the same closet, sharing everything.
  • I think I'm much darker than people suspect.
