I was never taught what femininity was. I learnt it – or rather I invented it – on my own.
What bothers you isn't so much whether you're beautiful or not. What bothers you is the way that people stare.
Memory is just another muscle. You have to keep it in shape. That's reason enough to keep acting in the theater.
A man can't pass on, like a mother could, an awareness of your body, or sensuality, or what it means to be a woman.
You were supposed to have an intellectual ability [and I'm making no claims here] proportional to your supposed good looks.
