Trivia and Quotes

  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Jennifer Tilly : My mother had all these maxims-like, classy girls never chew gum, never read comic books, never get their ears pierced, never get their hair dyed.

    • Jennifer Tilly : That Hollywood thing, where everybody hugs and kisses everybody else-I always stiffen. It's an assumed familiarity. It's phony.

    • Jennifer Tilly : The people I've been intimate with underestimate me the most. Love warps a person's perception of you. A guy in a relationship with you sees what he wants to see, and it takes a long time for that to, you know, transmogrify.

    • Jennifer Tilly : I would rather be loved by somebody who respected me.

    • Jennifer Tilly : I was cut out of The Doors. I was Okie Girl, a groupie. The powers that be thought that my character made Jim Morrison look too sleazy, if you can imagine. I saw the movie-it was so loud I had a headache for three days.

    • Jennifer Tilly : I have to tell you, I'm not like Demi Moore, where the tears trickle prettily down my cheeks. My whole face screws up and it's like, Oh please, get a room.

    • Jennifer Tilly :
      I have my cards read every time I pass a tarot-reader booth. I would be so embarrassed to have one of those 900 numbers appear on my phone bill, because I don't know how I would explain it to my business manager. It would almost be like saying, Okay, I'm white trash.

    • Jennifer: If I was like some of the characters I played, I'd probably be dead by now.

    • Jennifer: Everyone said that if you want to be a real actor, go to New York. If you want to sell out, go to LA. And I thought, I want to sell out!

    • Jennifer: I still haven't made a film that defines who I am.

    • (Jennifer on her role on the 2004 film Seed of Chucky)
      Jennifer: It's really gruesome, but it's a heartwarming story.

    • Jennifer Tilly: I always came back to wanting to be an actor. It must be genetic.

    • Jennifer Tilly: I saw Romeo and Juliet nine times. Our parents would only take us to movies that they thought had redeeming value, which is why we didn't go to movies very often. We went to Shakespeare festivals, and we'd go home and memorize all of Romeo or Macbeth and then go round the house and act it out.

    • Jennifer Tilly: I don't want people to think, 'Oh, look, Jennifer, she's really ditsy.'

  • The greatest actress ever and should be well noted for her talent and not just her chest!

    Jennifer Tilly is 1 of the greatest actresses of our time with such great talent and charm should be in most of the movies you see. Her unique yet suthing voice makes her easily noticed. She has been in over 45 movies and the number is growing rappidly. Jennifer is a very sweet person who (I have heard) is fun to be around with a bubbly personality. I think Jennifer should be noticed much more and even have her own show. She has such good talent and is always prepared for her roles and picks roles that are different from her life and are fun for to do. Jennifer is also known for her big breast but has an overall nice body that has been seen in many movies. Men love her and so do woman. Jennifer Tilly is great and everyone should love her. I know that I do!moreless
