Biography

EDIT

  • Quotes

    • Diane: I don't think that because I'm not married it's made my life any less. That old maid myth is garbage.

    • Diane: A sense of freedom is something that, happily, comes with age and life experience. In The Second Sex, Simone de Beauvoir says that as they approach 50, a lot of women are set free from the anxiety and the mortification and the humiliation of intimate relationships with men - the opposite sex. For some reason, you are suddenly free from it. And thank God for that. It's the upside of sticking around this long.

    • Diane: It's not fun to see myself in the mirror.

    • Diane: Working with Jack (Nicholson) is sort of like standing in front of the Grand Canyon.

    • Diane: Motherhood has completely changed me. It's just about like the most completely humbling experience that I've ever had. I think that it puts you in your place because it really forces you to address the issues that you claim to believe in and if you can't stand up to those principles when you're raising a child, forget it.

    • Diane: What celebrities are useful for is bringing attention to the public and making them more aware. They can be unbelievably effective.

    • Diane: I'm limited, so, I kind of know where I fit as an actress. I kind of get it now, finally, after all of these years of trying to be a dramatic actress. I kind of think that'd I'd like to continue dealing with these things in a funny, lighter vein, but also truthful and honest.

    • Diane: I'd like to go out authentic.

    • Diane: I think that people who are famous tend to be underdeveloped in their humanity skills.

    • Diane: I just have to keep going back to the core and think that we're all afraid of it and when we're afraid of it, you run to something much easier, something that looks like candy.
