Text Quotes
When I was eight, it was clear I was a very good singer  (Lesley Manville Quotes) I’m fascinated by food. Food is love, isn’t it?  (Lesley Manville Quotes) I, Lesley, I like looking nice. I like doing my hair and wearing makeup and wearing nice clothes. But I don’t care what my characters look like.  (Lesley Manville Quotes) With learning lines, before I had Alfie, I’d put it off and think, ‘Oh, I’ll just have a glass of wine and then do it later,’ but when you’ve finally got a child to bed and you know you’ve only got an hour, then you achieve so much.  (Lesley Manville Quotes) My mother always cooked, every day, proper food. We didn’t have fast food. It was probably pretty much meat and two veg, but as time went on and new things came into the culture, she embraced all of that. I grew up with mealtimes and sitting around the table with proper cooking and eating.  (Lesley Manville Quotes) Stage is the ultimate test; I like watching established screen actors on stage to see if they can really do it. But it’s great to have a healthy mixture of the two. Film is so technical: there’s something very particular about the relationship between you and the camera. It took a long time for me to get good on film.  (Lesley Manville Quotes) I like to personalise my dressing room, have a cover for the bed and, if it is a long run, a few cushions and a teapot - a little pot for one.  (Lesley Manville Quotes) You’ve got to take responsibility for your own actions. We all know people who reach rock bottom. However much that they’re told that what they’re doing is harming their own life or whatever, you cannot make someone do it unless that person reaches the point where they know that they have to deal with it themselves.  (Lesley Manville Quotes) Corinne Bailey Rae I listen to a lot, and I’ll hear Desert Island Discs and quickly write down the name of a song, and it will open up a new area of music for me. I discovered an Argentinian guitarist, Jose Luis Bieito, on Classic FM.  (Lesley Manville Quotes) I’m very lucky because I don’t half get some juicy jobs. But I can’t tell you the number I’ve turned down in the past 20 years because I wanted to be at home, looking after my son. There was never any question about that. Alfie and I are dead close. I can’t bear it when he’s away.  (Lesley Manville Quotes) The thing is this: I’ve got an amazing career in England that couldn’t possibly get much better. I do the best theater around, I work at the National Theater, the Old Vic - which I’m sure you’ve heard of because it’s the one Kevin Spacey runs - and I play the most amazing roles and work with the most amazing directors.  (Lesley Manville Quotes) I quite like that people tend not to know my name. I remember being at the Cannes film festival for ‘All or Nothing.’ I looked very different in the film - I had a little greasy bob and no makeup. I went to a dinner after the screening, and everyone completely ignored me. I got a real buzz out of that.  (Lesley Manville Quotes) A friend of mine rang the box office to collect a ticket I’d reserved for her, and the girl said, ‘Who’s Lesley Manville?’  (Lesley Manville Quotes) If I go away, I take a little picture of my son. It’s in a frame with a speaker, and he recorded a birthday message for me when he was nine or 10. I can’t listen to it without filling up.  (Lesley Manville Quotes) It gets easier as you get older because life deals its particular hand, and our experiences get deeper, richer, more profound. When I gave birth to my son, something happened. It is a huge thing for a woman: a whole set of emotions you never had before arrives, and a love you never had before in your life is now on tap.  (Lesley Manville Quotes) When I gave birth to my son, something happened. It is a huge thing for a woman: a whole set of emotions you never had before arrives, and a love you never had before in your life is now on tap.  (Lesley Manville Quotes) I’ve got two older sisters who I’m very close to. And my son’s grown up with a big sense of family around him.  (Lesley Manville Quotes) I’m a big fan of Edouard Vuillard, so I’d like anything by him - particularly a painting called ‘Madame Hessel on the Sofa.’ His work is realistic without being literal: I can really imagine what Madame Hessel is thinking.  (Lesley Manville Quotes) For me, the times in my life when I’ve been single have been more formative and crucial than I could have imagined. I can cope, function and be happy on my own. I’m highly capable. That doesn’t mean I don’t like being with a partner, or that I don’t feel more rounded when I’m with someone. But the times on my own have been so good.  (Lesley Manville Quotes) I have been devoted to my son, and there have been lots of jobs in the past that I haven’t done because I didn’t want to be away from him.  (Lesley Manville Quotes)
