The only reason they come to see me is that I know that life is great - and they know I know it
Every picture I make, every experience of my private life, every lesson I learn are the keys to my future. And I have faith in it.
Types really don't matter. I have been accused of preferring blondes. But I have known some mighty attractive redheads, brunettes, and yes, women with grey hair. Age, height, weight haven't anything to do with glamour.
When I die, don't let them make a circus out of it.
I was scared, when I discovered that I had been cast by the public. I felt that every reader would have a different idea as to how Rhett should be played on the screen, and I didn't see how I could please everybody.
