Todays Quotes
(and Birthday Girl)


Acting's fun, but life's more important.
 Horrifying as it was to crack up in the public eye, it made me look at myself and fix it. People were exploitative; that's human nature.

 I don't buy into any of that hogwash. They put that out to sell tickets. It's just a classic horror movie, with the Greek drama formula of good versus evil, and lots of fear.

I had always thought of Chris as my kid brother and watching how this kid, as I still thought of him, had affected so many people's lives around the world was incredible.
I love horror movies because they're really fun. They tap into those wonderful primal emotions.

The first Superman film took up a huge chunk of our lives, but it was a wonderful time for us. We were young, my daughter was little, we were filming in London for a year, so we became like a close family.
Margot Kidder
There's this unspoken club where you say to each other: Oh God, if they only knew how ordinary I was, they wouldn't be interested. That includes movie stars and politicians.
Margot Kidder
