Hedy Lamarr

  • To be a star is to own the world and all the people in it.

  • After a taste of stardom, everything else is poverty.

  • That's how it always is in the entertainment industry, your feet are always treading Jello.

  • I don't fear death because I don't fear anything I don't understand. When I start to think of it, I order a massage and it goes away.

  • I can excuse anything but boredom. Boring people don't have to stay that way.

  • [Suggesting her epitaph:] This is too deep for me.

  • Any girl can be glamorous: all you have to do is stand still and look stupid.
