    • Ingrid: I have grown up alone. I've taken care of myself. I worked, earned money and was independent at 18.

    • Ingrid: I made so many films which were more important, but the only one people ever want to talk about is that one with Bogart.

    • Ingrid: Acting is the best medicine in the world - if you're not feeling well, it goes away because you are busy thinking about something that isn't yourself. We actors are very fortunate people.

    • Ingrid: Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day.

    • Ingrid (to her daughter, Isabella Rosellini): Keep it simple. Make a blank face and the music and the story will fill it in.

    • Ingrid: There are advantages to being a star though - you can always get a table in a full restaurant.

    • Ingrid: If you took acting away from me, I'd stop breathing.

    • Ingrid: I've never sought success in order to get fame and money; it's the talent and the passion that count in success.

    • Ingrid: Everything is worth precisely as much as a belch, the difference being that a belch is more satisfying.

    • Ingrid: Until 45 I can play a woman in love. After 55 I can play grandmothers. But between those ten years, it is difficult for an actress.

    • Ingrid: I was not beautiful. When I went to Hollywood the beauties were people like Joan Crawford, Hedy Lamarr, Loretta Young. They were incredibly glamorous. I was always the girl next door.

    • Ingrid: We walk in circles, so limited by our own anxieties that we can no longer distinguish between true and false, between the gangster's whim and the purest ideal.

    • Ingrid: I have had a wonderful life. I have never regretted what I did. I regret things I didn't do. All my life I've done things at a moment's notice. Those are the things I remember. I was given courage, a sense of adventure and a little bit of humor. I don't think anyone has the right to intrude in your life, but they do. I would like people to separate the actress and the woman.

    • Ingrid: I always felt guilty. My whole life.

    • Ingrid: I don't think anyone has the right to intrude in your life, but they do. I would like people to separate the actress and the woman.

    • Ingrid: The best way to keep young is to keep going in whatever it is that keeps you going. With me that's work, and a lot of it. And when a job is finished, relax and have fun.

    • Ingrid: I can do everything with ease on the stage, whereas in real life I feel too big and clumsy. So I didn't choose acting. It chose me.

    • Ingrid: No form of art goes beyond ordinary consciousness as film does, straight to our emotions, deep into the twilight of the soul.

    • Ingrid: It is not whether you really cry. It's whether the audience thinks you are crying.

    • Ingrid: Never again!! I can see no reason for marriage - ever at all. I've had it. Three times is enough.

    • Ingrid: I have no regrets. I wouldn't have lived my life the way I did if I was going to worry about what people were going to say.

    • Ingrid: I remember one day sitting at the pool and suddenly the tears were streaming down my cheeks. Why was I so unhappy? I had success. I had security. But it wasn't enough. I was exploding inside.

    • Ingrid: I don't worry about it because we are all growing old. If I were the only one I would worry. But we're all in the same boat, and all of my friends are coming with me. We all go toward old age. How many years left we don't know. We just have to accept it.

    • Ingrid: I've gone from saint to whore and back to saint again, all in one lifetime.

    • Ingrid: Cancer victims who don't accept their fate, who don't learn to live with it, will only destroy what little time they have left.

    • Ingrid: Film as dream, film as music. No art passes our conscience in the way film does, and goes directly to our feelings, deep down into the dark rooms of our souls.

    • Ingrid: You must train your intuition - you must trust the small voice inside you which tells you exactly what to say, what to decide.

    • Ingrid: Time is shortening. But every day that I challenge this cancer and survive is a victory for me.

    • Ingrid: I´m no Sexgoddess but I haven't spent my life in a tree...

    • Ingrid: Happiness is good health and a bad memory.

    • Ingrid: Be yourself. The world worships the original.

    • Ingrid: I was the shyest human ever invented, but I had a lion inside me that wouldn't shut up!

    • Ingrid: I write scripts to serve as skeletons awaiting the flesh and sinew of images.

    • Ingrid: I do not know how to kiss, or I would kiss you. Where do the noses go?

    • Ingrid: A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous.

    • Ingrid: I hope I never get so old I get religious.

    • Ingrid: Success is getting what you want; happiness is wanting what you get.

    A giantess of the silver screen, literally at five-foot-ten. She may talk with a noticeable accent, but she doesn't act with one. Her performance in Spellbound (1945) is one of my favorite of all time, as she exercises all of her skills and moods; from cold and aloof to warm, loving, and sympathetic. She is also greatly loved for her most notable as Ilsa in Casablanca. Again, she exhibits the talents that made her notable and loved, even by audiences sixty years later. Sadly, she passed away on her 67th birthday, but she will live on thanks to reruns. Don't miss her.moreless

    Ingrid Bergman is really a talented actress. In fact, she's one of the all-time greats in the history of American cinema. In every role she really makes you believe that she actually is the character she's portraying. This sense of realism is what makes her really stand out above the masses of the rest of actresses today. My favorite movie of her's is "Casablanca."
