You can't find any true closeness in Hollywood, because everybody does the fake closeness so well.

Some suggestions for you :

Stay afraid, but do it anyway. What's important is the action. You don't have to wait to be confident. Just do it and eventually the confidence will follow.

I trust myself. I trust my instincts. I know what I'm gonna do, what I can do, what I can't do. I've been through a lot, and I could go through more, but I hope I don't have to. But if I did, I'd be able to do it. I'm not going to enjoy dying, but there's not much prep for that.

I was born on October 21, 1956 in Burbank, California. My father, Eddie Fisher, was a famous singer. My mother, Debbie Reynolds, was a movie star. Her best-known role was in 'Singin' In The Rain.'

It's difficult to know what to say to someone whose partner has cheated on them.

If anything, my mother taught me how to sur-thrive. That's my word for it.

Mothers are great. They outlast everything. But when they're bad, they're the worst thing that can happen.

Resentment is like drinking poison and waiting for the other person to die.

I'm very sane about how crazy I am.

There is no point at which you can say, 'Well, I'm successful now. I might as well take a nap.'

I know I'm going to get old and be one of those crazy women who sits on balconies and spits on people and screams, 'Get a haircut!' I know this, and I don't really fear it. I'd just like to move toward it with as much grace and dignity as possible.

Anything you can do in excess for the wrong reasons is exciting to me.

No, as it turns out, I really like being congratulated on my weight loss. I like it so much, it's tragic.

I think of my body as a side effect of my mind.

If my life wasn't funny, it would just be true, and that's unacceptable.
