Quotes by: Lauren Bacall

<<1234>>
Movies are great fun and wonderful when they're good. But you never get to see them till six months after they're finished. So you never get a sense of whether they're really well liked or how good they are. And you don't really know what the finished product is going to be like, because it's a director's medium.
Lauren Bacall
I don't consider myself a great actress. I'm just trying to stay alive, actually. I think I'm good, and I've learned a lot, certainly, mostly in the theater. I've been sloughed off movies for years. But what can you do? That's life.
Lauren Bacall
They're guys who want to screw around all the time, which interests me not at all. God knows we've done that, been there, and we don't want to do that any more.
Lauren Bacall
My feeling about the movies is that most of them are terrible. If you don't have a decent script and a decent director, forget it.
Lauren Bacall
For my peculiar face, I look best when I look as though I'm not wearing make-up.
Lauren Bacall
All the Warner actors were real actors. They started in theater and led very straightforward lives - you never saw entourages around. The MGM girls were the glamour girls, and they always had the makeup and hair people with them and all that.
Lauren Bacall
When I was a kid, it was Bette Davis. She was my idol. I used to cut school and sit in the back of the theater; of course, I would have snuck in because I couldn't afford a ticket.
Lauren Bacall
It's just a fact of life that I don't think I've ever been taken particularly seriously in movies by movie makers. I don't know why.
Lauren Bacall
I used to dream of being other places, other people. It was an escape for me.
Lauren Bacall
You can't start worrying about what's going to happen. You get spastic enough worrying about what's happening now.
Lauren Bacall
When everything happens to you when you're so young, you're very lucky, but by the same token, you're never going to have that same feeling again. The first time anything happens to you - your first love, your first success - the second one is never the same.
Lauren Bacall
There were times, sure, I wanted my career to go better. But once it starts to go downhill, you can never get back, or only to some degree.
Lauren Bacall
I don't look in the mirror; don't like what I see; never have. I am not my idea of a beauty. Never was. This is not false modesty. I've just never been enamoured of my face, which of course is magnified umpteen times on screen.
Lauren Bacall
I don't sit around thinking that I'd like to have another husband; only another man would make me think that way.
Lauren Bacall
I called my business manager in California and said, 'Sell all of my stock' - what little of it I had - and it's the only smart financial move I ever made.
Lauren Bacall
A woman isn't complete without a man. But where do you find a man - a real man - these days?
Lauren Bacall
I always wanted to work with Spencer Tracy, which never happened, although I knew him well. And I never worked with Cary Grant.
Lauren Bacall
Find me a man who's interesting enough to have dinner with and I'll be happy.
Lauren Bacall
If I could have lived as an actress in any period, it would have been the 1920s - I would have loved to have been part of that speakeasy era.
Lauren Bacall
I would hate now to be married. It does occur to me on occasion that, if I fall and hit my head, there will be no one to make the phone call. But who wants to think about that disaster, I'd prefer not to.
