Faye Dunaway In Bonnie And Clyde Actress Faye Dunaway Faye Dunaway

Between two evils, I always choose the one I never tried before.

You are an athlete when you're onstage. You can't get tired.

I think you always have to look for stuff that's good and there is really good stuff especially in the independent arena.

My mother's passion for something more, to write a different destiny for a dirt-poor farmer's daughter, was to shape my entire life.

I really hate talking about "Mommie Dearest"! It is like an obsession with people! Why do people need to focus so much on one film I made over 20 years ago? It was not a great time in my life and the film was not an experience I want to think about. Period!
