Text Quotes
I’m not a great beauty. That’s not me  (Anne-Marie Duff Quotes) I only went along to youth theatre with a friend when I was young to try to make myself a bit more sociable. But the whole thing was quite sore; it really hurt me trying to get into drama school. It was a world I knew nothing about - it was very middle class; all that usual stuff. But I was young, determined, and I just went for it  (Anne-Marie Duff Quotes) The life of an actor is very random. It can be exhilarating but terrifying - you do wonder day to day where the next job will come from. Some of my friends are very talented people, but you see them out of work - which can be tough. If you wanted that kind of security, though, I guess you wouldn’t be an actor in the first place  (Anne-Marie Duff Quotes) I don’t look like Catherine Zeta-Jones, so I don’t think Hollywood would be that interested in me, to be honest. I just want nice work  (Anne-Marie Duff Quotes) You want to have enough of a profile to be able to do all the work you can, but at the same time you want to have your own space. But there are a lot of actors who achieve it, a lot of movie stars even, people like Emily Watson and Cate Blanchett. They seem to be able to carry on with their lives and still produce wonderful, high-profile work  (Anne-Marie Duff Quotes) In theatre, there’s the director, the writer, and below them the actor. In film, it’s the actors who are most important. That goes against the grain for me  (Anne-Marie Duff Quotes) Healthy love, I always think, is... wanting the person you love to be more of themselves. And I think for a parent that’s a challenge, because you have to let a baby spread its wings  (Anne-Marie Duff Quotes) There are people out there with three jobs and small children. Being an actor is a walk in the park compared to working as a cleaner overnight. I’m lucky I’m not plucking chickens  (Anne-Marie Duff Quotes) When I started drama school, theatre was the main draw. I never had any movie star notions. Not that there were family ties to the theatre, either  (Anne-Marie Duff Quotes) I didn’t really inhabit myself until I was in my 30s. And motherhood is an epic event. You can’t help but be altered by it - and it is important to be.  (Anne-Marie Duff Quotes) I’ve been shocked by film actors - 25 and under - having such confidence and cockiness to rewrite a scene. My background is more about the director being in control. It’s all about yielding. It’s an oddly submissive relationship in which you’re moulded, Pygmalion-style.  (Anne-Marie Duff Quotes) Your heart... it’s a very fragile muscle. You have to take care of it, be old-fashioned about it.  (Anne-Marie Duff Quotes) People can be a bit flagrant when they’re having an affair. Most of the time, there’s an element of it where they want to be discovered because they’re in crisis. They need the boil to be burst, in some way, for a resolution  (Anne-Marie Duff Quotes) I was very lucky in that my parents were very broad-minded. Because they had come from another country and hadn’t been able to fulfill their dreams, they wanted me to be more of myself, if you know what I mean  (Anne-Marie Duff Quotes) I just would like to keep going. If I kept getting the kind of work that I’ve been getting for the last 20 years for the next 20, I’d be a bloody Dame of the British Empire. I’d be so happy  (Anne-Marie Duff Quotes) I admire people who overcome obstacles or who have to commit - I’ve always really admired commitment, whether it be a commitment to living or a commitment to love. People who commit to a moment. People who are not somewhere else, but in the room with you  (Anne-Marie Duff Quotes) I think creative people need to do a bit of, you know, tuning into every radio station - you just do, otherwise you don’t know much about other people. You kind of have to learn a bit about yourself so you can work out how we all behave and why we do the things we do  (Anne-Marie Duff Quotes) I am very lucky. I have known wonderful romantic love in my life but to actually see this little creature and find him to be the most beautiful creature in the world. I know all mothers and fathers feel that way  (Anne-Marie Duff Quotes) I didn’t really know anything about Margot Fonteyn. I’d never really been a ballet child, so I had no idea what an incredibly huge icon she was, not just in terms of a creative icon - she was also a style icon. I had no idea she was up there with Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Onassis in terms of that kind of image  (Anne-Marie Duff Quotes) I was quite shy. I used to write stories all the time, and I think that was a worry for my parents  (Anne-Marie Duff Quotes) As I get older, I want to draw on my experience to make roles better. I see that in the older women who inspire me - their experience makes them better  (Anne-Marie Duff Quotes) I suppose it’s whether you want to be a famous person, or whether you want to be an actor. You have to decide what your priorities are. Great actor, huge star. Sometimes, the two walk hand in hand. Most of the time, they don’t  (Anne-Marie Duff Quotes) There are some roles you just don’t say ‘no’ to. Those compass points: you get them so rarely as an actress  (Anne-Marie Duff Quotes) I’m a right pain in the hole for my agent. I won’t take certain parts if I think they’re offensive or banal. For instance, I won’t do a film if I think it’s full of violence for violence’s sake, or a television drama if I don’t think it’s intelligent writing  (Anne-Marie Duff Quotes) It’s never enjoyable watching yourself. Because you’re never as good looking as you hope you are. You’re not expecting to be Penelope Cruz... but I’m a female of the species. I have my hang-ups and all of that.  (Anne-Marie Duff Quotes)
