  • Quotes

    • Anne: The therapists knew about my abuse. The therapists knew about the shame I was enduring... But the therapists never knew the extent of the world that I created to get out of the shame of my abuse.

    • Anne: I was raised to pretend.

    • Anne: (About shooting Psycho) What Norman Bates calls for is for an actor to be able to go into their insanity... Vince is one of the few people I think who's willing to go into that duplicity in himself, and that insanity, and say, 'You know what? Now I'll show it to you.' I think that we're going to love his Norman Bates, because he's showing you himself in ways that nobody else would have the courage to do. It's an amazing performance.

    • Anne: The whole shooting process of Psycho was amazing in that way, because I felt like I had been chosen to remake history.

    • Anne: He's the guy who is every woman's dream and the man who's every man's dream.

    • Anne: (About her relationship with Ellen DeGeneres) Ellen and I had a three and a half year relationship that ended sadly, not because we were both women, but because we both wanted different things for our lives.

    • Anne: This nonsense about my mother praying for me is really making me angry. My mother never approved of my relationship with Ellen. Her hatred for our relationship is one of the many things that ultimately led to my breaking off all communication with her.

    • Anne: And for anyone who ever thought that Ellen and I broke it off because of sexuality, you couldn't be more mistaken. And for anyone who thought my mother's prayers had anything to do with me marrying a man, forget it.

    • Anne: Vibrators. I think they are great. They keep you out of stupid sex. I'd pitch them to anybody.

    • Anne: I wanted to talk about stuff that people don't talk about so that maybe they would talk about it... So... maybe they could save themselves from going crazy.

    • Anne: It's important to talk about loving yourself and looking at your tragedies and the stuff that makes you grow.

    • Anne: We do not fall in love with the package of the person, we fall in love with the inside of a person.

    • Anne: It's my job, to create a fantasy.

    • Anne: Are we changing the idea of what beauty is? Let's hope so. I'm not the typical Hollywood beauty. Let's hope we're looking at the insides of people a little more.

    • Anne: And as a child, we have such a wonderful thing as children, that we can just make the best of everything, and say, Well, this must be what everybody else is experiencing, and I've got to make the best of it. You don't know that it's not good until you witness something that it seems better.

    • Anne: I've always kind of gone with my heart.

    • Anne: I'm always honest, whether I'm in the limelight or not.

    • Anne: I put a very high premium on honesty. What I learned from death is that if you don't accept your sexuality, it will kill you.
