  • Quotes

    • Jerry Hall: (about acting) I adore acting, Now I have discovered what it's about, I want to do it more and more. I'm hooked on it. It's better than sex. You can do it eight times a week and still you don't get pregnant.

    • Jerry Hall: (about how her stage career started) I appeared in Bus Stop ten years ago, both in America and here in the West End. Then, in 2000, John Reid, Elton John's former manager, asked me to audition for the stage version of The Graduate he was producing. So I worked on it, got the part, and after three weeks' rehearsal I was on stage! Being nude in front of an audience was scary, but I kind of got into it towards the end, after doing it for eleven months.

    • Jerry Hall: (when asked about whether she follows pop music nowadays) Noooo. I have very old-fashioned tastes. I love good rock'n'roll, blues and jazz, gospel, and a little reggae. I love Johnny Cash, Nina Simone, Edith Piaf, and Ella Fitzgerald. Of course I love the Stones. And Bob Dylan. My kids have similar tastes — they love all the good old stuff. My son James even has a rock'n'roll band — they perform locally in London.

    • Jerry Hall: (when asked if she ever went on tour with 'The Rolling Stones') I did. Had I not been busy with my own work, I'd have been on tour with them the whole time. I really loved the music, plus I liked staying in all those fancy hotels. I'm a bit of a groupie.

    • Jerry Hall: (about politics) I have absolutely zero interest in politics. I'm a very bad citizen. I've never even voted. I realize that's a very immature attitude. I'd be very interested if there was a woman president.

    • Jerry Hall: Younger men make you listen to Coldplay - and there ain't no treatment for that.

    • Jerry Hall: (about having grandchildren) The thought really excites me - I have the pram waiting in the hall. I'm ready but I'm not sure she is.

    • Jerry Hall: (talking about why she loves Texas) Mmm, must be the fresh air and good food. [laughs] When I go home, one of my hobbies is--my twin sister lives down there and she has these girls who baby-sit for her. And they're, like, fifteen-year-old cheerleaders. And so I make them up--sort of transform them, with all these hairpieces and false eyelashes and total makeup. And then I get a tungsten light and I photograph them and I give them this portrait. I dress them all up with jewelry and clothes and everything, and I give them this Hollywood portrait as a present. And they just love it. They say, "Oh my God! I look like Morgan Fairchild"--Iike the dream they want to look like. And it's so easy, because they're really gorgeous.

    • Jerry Hall: (talking about what her passions are) Music, art, theater. I'm just a big fan of beauty. (laughs) I love ballet too. My favorite dancer is Sylvie Guillem.

    • Jerry Hall: My mother always said, 'to keep a man happy, you had to be a cook in the kitchen, a maid in the living room and a whore in the bedroom. With our servants, I can't do everything!'

    • Jerry Hall: As you get older, your eyesight worsens, so you can't see your wrinkles anyway.
