Susannah York's quotes

  • [on being Oscar nominated for her role in They Shoot Horses, Don't They? (1969)] "I don't think I have much of a chance and I didn't think much of myself in it."
  • I usually find that actors are rather interested people. It's part of our profession. It all starts with curiosity about other human beings. The best actors have that kind of interest in people and in life.
  • [speaking in 2005] "I'm an infinitely better actress now than I was 30 years ago because I've had experiences and I've learned. I do look back on some roles and think I was dreadful, but I'm not going to tell you which performances I'm talking about."
  • [on Warren Beatty] Warren is a teddy bear, though I used to become annoyed when the teddy bear hugs turned to bottom pinches.
  • My career is incredibly important to me and I am so lucky to have such a wonderful life but, no matter how important my work is to me, my family always comes first... I really am still having a truly amazing life. I touch wood all the time.
  • [on Montgomery Clift] He was absolutely a loner. He was completely an individual, very selfish as most artists are. But with an enormous regard for truth and for putting the best of himself into what he was doing - his work.
