‘But I think people still think that I’m like my character, or that because I like girly things and I have a lilt in my voice that I’m dumb. But I don’t think you can be dumb and write a big chunk of a TV show. I think of myself as a smart and funny person, but I am very girly, and in the past I’ve been hurt by people who criticise me for liking things they think are beneath me, like shopping or whatever, and the people who give me the hardest time about it are women. I think it may be because there are so few women in comedy and so there’s a feeling that we shouldn’t sell women out, but I don’t see talking about fashion as selling women out’ -

I didn’t have to worry about my looks. If you have to be concerned about your appearance, acting goes out of the window. Margo Channing was past forty. So was I. I was supposed to look the way I did. I see no reason why a woman of forty should be embarassed by trying to look as well as she can. It’s a cliché — and I think Hollywood established it — when a woman at forty is supposed to be a character. It’s not true. (…) People get that idea that actresses my age are dying to play younger women. The fact is we die everytime we play them.
