In Hollywood a marriage is a success if it outlast milk.
Attaining success in Hollywood is like climbing a gigantic mountain of cow flop in order to pluck one perfect rose from the summit. And you find after you’ve made that hideous ascent – you’ve lost your sense of smell!
Too many freeways, too much sun, too much abnormality taken normally, too many pink stucco houses and pink stucco consciences. (on Hollywood)
Isn’t Hollywood a dump-in the human sense of the word. A hideous town, pointed up by the insulting gardens of its rich, full of the human spirit at a new low of debasement.
After two years in Washington, I often long for the realism and sincerity of Hollywood.
Hollywood will accept two-faced people, but they won’t accept people with two chins.
Hollywood died on me as soon as I got there.
Hollywood – an emotional Detroit.
I’m not bitter about Hollywood’s treatment of me, but of its treatment of Griffith, von Sternberg, Buster Keaton, and a hundred others.
I believe that God felt sorry for actors so he created Hollywood to give them a place in the sun and a swimming pool. The price they had to pay was to surrender their talent.
