“I wasn’t a sex symbol, I was a sex zombie.”
“I will have one of the cleanest obits of any actress. I never did cheesecake, I just used my hair.”
“You could put all the talent I had into your left eye and still not suffer from impaired vision.”
(On Marlon Brando:)
“Our romance was short but sweet. He was on the dawn of a brilliant film career, and I was in the twilight of one. Of course, my career could never compare with his.”
(Veronica in 1970, reflecting on her career:)
” I’ve reached a point in my life where it’s the little things that matter. I’m no longer interested in doing what’s expected of me. I was always a rebel and probably could have got much farther had I changed my attitude. But when you think about it, I got pretty far without changing attitudes. I’m happier with that.”
