Holly Hunter Quotes On Real

“I really admire people who are extraordinarily tolerant and patient”

In storytelling you kind

“In storytelling you kind of put your nightmares up there, you put your dreams up there and people can see them better because they can stand outside of it and look at it and recognize themselves inside it. So I feel that that in and of itself is a spiritual thing.”

I just went, “That is the conversation I want to have.””

“Real quality in roles is very hard to come by. Any actor or actress will tell you that. Great movies are hard to come by. It’s almost impossible to make one, and most people have to settle for making something less.”

“I’ve never had a career of that kind of box office power. I’ve always learned the hard way”

Holly Hunter Quotes On Age

In some ways, it would

“In some ways, it would be nice to stay younger, but I feel pretty happy about growing older… Personally, I don’t have a lot of the regular hand-ups with getting older that some people do. I’ve never tried to disguise my age. People find out anyway.”

Holly Hunter Quotes On Beauty

“I think that my looks through the years have served me well because I was never a great beauty and I was never cast as a great beauty. My looks were not part of my transportation – certainly not in the typical leading lady role – so I never leaned on it and I never really made that a high value.”

When you spend many

“When you spend many hours a week working with the same people – I mean television operates on really amazing hours and the gift of that is the trust that you feel and the intimacy that you feel with the people who you’re working with.”

“I’ve never worked as much as I would’ve wanted to, and that’s why I end up doing a lot of stage as well, because stage is a full course meal”

Holly Hunter Quotes On Movie

“The rhythm of my career has always been very static, staccato and then silent, and then a lot of work, and then none”

Holly Hunter Quotes On Acter

“It’s the same with people knowing absolutely everything there is to know about an actor. I actually think the more personal information you have about an actor, the more you have to carve out for yourself when you go to a movie and see them in it”

“It’s the same with people knowing absolutely everything there is to know about an actor. I actually think the more personal information you have about an actor, the more you have to carve out for yourself when you go to a movie and see them in it”

“I get cold really quickly, but I don’t care. I like weather. I never understand why people move someplace so that they can avoid weather.”

“I think it’s really odd, too, that the public is so privy to how much money the actors make and what movies cost. It seems to me to be beside the point. When I go to a movie I really don’t want to think about the money. I want to see the story”

Holly Hunter Quotes On Mother

“Mothers and daughters can stay very connected during teenage years. In the middle of your life, you can become very alone. Even though you’re connected deeply to other family members, lovers, husbands, friends.”
