She was just interested in everything and she took me to opera and ballet, and then ballet got me hooked  (Fred Astaire Quotes) Being young isn’t about age, it’s about being a free spirit. You can meet someone of 20 who’s boring and old, or you can meet someone of 70 who’s youthful and exciting. I met Fred Astaire when he was 72 and I was 21, and I fell in love with him.

It’s kind of inspiring because it reminds me his feet were bleeding at the end of rehearsals. Yet when you watch him, all you see is freedom. It’s a reminder of what the job is about in general, not just being in musicals  (Fred Astaire Quotes) I always loved all kinds of music. I would watch musicals a lot as a kid, on TV, watch the Fred Astaire movies. I’d watch ‘The Wizard of Oz.’ I was a big Jerry Lewis fan, and they’d have these big bands and someone singing - some siren, or some guy singing some gorgeous song. I was always enamored of that style of music  (Fred Astaire Quotes) I’ve worked with Jack Warner and Jimmy Stewart - and Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, and Johnny Depp twice.

But when it comes to selling records I was never worth anything particularly except as a collector’s item.  (Fred Astaire Quotes) I felt Michael Jackson was inspired a little bit more from the elegance of a Fred Astaire. Michael loved Sammy Davis, Jr. and James Brown and Judy Garland and Fred Astaire. But he wasn’t any of those people. To be inspired is one thing, but he made it all his own.  (Fred Astaire Quotes) Of course the Disney movies, you know all the soundtracks, and anything Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire were doing - Singing in the Rain was one of my favorite musicals I used to watch a lot because my mom came from a theatre background.  (Fred Astaire Quotes) I grew up with the movies of Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire and Judy Garland - these are the kinds of shows and the kinds of numbers in shows that I dreamed of being in and doing when I was a kid.  (Fred Astaire Quotes) What do dancers think of Fred Astaire?
