All I want is to be loved, for myself and for my talent. Dreaming about being an actress, is more exciting then being one. I've been on a calendar, but I've never been on time. A sex symbol becomes a thing. I just hate to be a thing. Husbands are chiefly good as lovers when they are betraying their wives. I restore myself when I'm alone. An actress is not a machine, but they treat you like a machine. A money machine. I am not interested in money. I just want to be wonderful. Before marriage, a girl has to make love to a man to hold him.
