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 : 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 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.

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