What’s another interest of yours outside of movies? The theater. I started out in the theater and just have a passion for life, quite simply. It’s the entirety of human experience: the connections, and I also love animals enormously.
What’s the first movie you ever saw? I’m not quite sure. In school they used to take us to the cinema, to see Charlie Chaplin films. Ah! then Michel Strogoff.
When did you decide you wanted to make movies? I didn’t have to decide. Since I was young I had a passion for words, for the written word. I wasn’t thinking about a career. I wanted to act in the theater, to be an actress. I left school and went out onto the street. I loved to play to the masses, to read aloud, recite poems, and even go bicycling.
Who or what inspires you? Everything! Life, people, everyday life, the street, nature, trees, art, long walk, and most of all poetry. I’m not sure I’d say it inspires me, but I think I have a gift, a present from nature, to love life above.
What advice do you have for others who might want to follow in your footsteps? Ay, ay, ay!! Advice…!! My advice is to “feel;” if someone holds a true passion for something, they should do it; most importantly, don’t do it just for glory. (x)
“And out the door. Into my car and around the corner to Rodeo Drive and Wilshire Boulevard. There was Bogie with Jimmy Gleason, whom he’d met at some bar. I ran up the street - arms open wide, hair flying - to Bogie’s smiling face and safe embrace. We sat in the car for a while - Gleason didn’t know or care what was going on - it was just that Bogie had to see his Baby. What it felt like to be so wanted, so adored! No one had ever felt like that about me. It was all so dramatic, too. Always in the wee small hours when it seemed to Bogie and me that the world was ours - that we were the world. At those times were were.” — Lauren Bacall
