  • 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.'
