  • Quotes

    • Diane: You don't realize how many flaws you have until you've lived with someone. It's humbling just to stick it out. Love is saying you're sorry. It's the exact opposite of those cherub posters that say "Love means never having to say you're sorry." Wrong! Love is three sorrys a day. If you haven't met that quota, something's wrong.

    • Diane: (in 2008 about watching her daughter and stepdaughter grow up) It's scary! Poignant. Challenging. Rewarding. Frustrating. Sometimes I believe that opposable thumbs were invented so teenage girls could use text messaging. And now boys are starting to come into the picture. I get questions about that, and it just knocks my socks off. On the outside, I act calm about it, but inside, I'm freaking out. These are girls, you understand, who are growing up watching shows like Gossip Girl and movies like Sex and the City. My daughter saw that movie and was like, "Mom, don't go! You can't handle all the sex!"

    • Diane: (on the difficulty of getting film projects after a certain age as a woman) I'm delighted to have crossed the threshold into another stage of life where I can say it is a myth and I don't believe it. Because I think, fortunately for a large chunk of the population, we can be represented.

    • Diane: It's always refreshing to step into another time. I've often loved westerns because it was so interesting to experience the oppression of being in the saddle and being in a corset, just to appreciate being able to complain about being in high heels and tight jeans when you're done with your day's work.

    • Diane: I would like to find a way where I'm portraying somebody who - the vulnerability of a character is very important but at the same time, where you see the struggle. I enjoy watching women struggle because the vulnerability issues that women are expected to just wear on their sleeve, it's not how women are.

    • Diane: I waited a decade to get here, so I better enjoy it! I love it. I'm a late bloomer, and it's all good.

    • Diane: I like someone who's suffered from both sides.

    • Diane: There's a persona to being an actress.... That could put anyone into the shrink's office. Especially if you're fifteen, sixteen, eighteen years old going through that; realizing that the job is to have a persona.

    • Diane: (on online dating) Look, it's so interesting, because being a mom of a daughter - forget about it. I'm so hyper mama-bear protective: 'In no way is it ever all right to meet anybody you've [only] ever met on-line! Period! End of story. Close chapter, end the book.' But in my prickly, paranoid way, I'd say, 'Well don't they kind of pre-screen people at these agencies?' So I like the fact these services exist, and I think if you're meeting someone randomly outside the protection of the umbrella, you know you can't say you weren't warned.

    • Diane: I judged my mother much too harshly for her dating life. Being her only child, I wanted her completely to myself.

    • Diane: I have just enough attention to feel glamorous and important."

    • Diane: Even the short men I know appreciate a woman in heels.

  • A decent actress.

    I must say that Diane Lane is a decent actress, yet I feel like she is missing something. I don't know what it is, but I am guessing that it is that she lacks that flash. I will admit that she was good in many of her movies and she displays a wide range. The thing is, she lacks the comedy side of acting. I don't think she has very much charisma, but I think she makes up for it with her drama side. Overall, I will say that she is talented and also does a fair job of acting. Thank you.moreless
