Sondra Locke's quotes

  • No matter how big actors get, they always somehow think, 'Today is it -- tomorrow everybody's going to wake up and hate me.'
  • Everyone always wants to type you. With me, I started out as a vulnerable waif and for many years that's all anyone ever wanted me to play.
  • I've had some great parts, it's just that you're always looking for something that will take you in a different direction. People only see you in those boxes you've been most recently seen in. That way, they don't have to think or be creative.
  • Success is just a drop in the bucket, a grain of sand on the beach.
  • Externals don't throw me. I'm like a turtle. If I don't like the going, I just pull my head in.
  • I am a romantic. I want to cry when I throw out my Christmas tree, and I have a lot of feelings about magic and fantasy. I believe in elves and giants. I believe that fairy tales are nothing more than news reports of what once happened.
  • Believe in yourself. People try to discourage you about the cold world outside, but it's cold everywhere. Go after what you believe in. You have to try. If you fail, you will probably end up with something better than if you never tried.
  • My personality, or persona or whatever, is really more in line with directing. If I had seen more women's names on the credits when I was a child - you know, 'directed by Gladys Hooper' - I think I might have drifted more in that direction.
  • [on Clint Eastwood] I discovered he was a liar and a cheat who was leading a double, no, a triple if not a quadruple life, and who was terrified of being found out.
  • A real marriage doesn't need those papers. But a real breakup does.
  • [her reaction to finding out Clint Eastwood sired another woman's children while they were still together] I just thought, 'Oh my God!' Either he changed from white to black or I had been living with somebody I didn't even know.
  • [2013] I am reconciled that I will probably not work again, but if I do it will be something 'meant to be.'
  • [on Clint Eastwood's fans] They only want his image and not to be bothered with reality.
  • [1989, on what she would do if Clint Eastwood showed up on the set of Impulse (1990) to bad-vibe her] I'd go to my purse, take out my gun and shoot him in the back of the fucking head!
  • [from an interview with Dick Kleiner, 1969] I haven't thought of having a family. I'm not sure about bringing kids into this world. Anyhow, I'd feel sorry for any child that had me for a mother.
  • [on Willard (1971)] I hated it. I'm sorry that I did it.
  • [re Eastwood on Eastwood (1997), the documentary in which film clips were edited so carefully that she doesn't appear to have been in any of them] Yes, I heard about that. I wasn't surprised. It is one example of the pettiness that is Clint.
  • [on Death Game (1977)] The director didn't have any idea what he needed to be, was, or should be doing. He knew nothing.
  • To me, simplicity means elegance.
  • [on marrying Gordon Anderson] It's funny the sort of cultural changes, but in those days males and females never lived together unless they were married.
  • I never felt at home in Tennessee. I felt I'd been parachuted out at the wrong spot somehow.
  • [on having a repeat abortion] I couldn't help but think that that baby, with both Clint's and my best qualities, would be extraordinary.
  • Every TV job I did, I felt worse and worse and worse. I got so depressed, I thought I couldn't act anymore. The lines were terrible.
