Quotes

List of Cyd Charisse quotes.

(on Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly) I can watch Astaire anytime. I don't think he ever made a wrong move. He was a perfectionist. He would work on a few bars for hours until it was just the way he wanted it. Gene was the same way. They both wanted perfection, even though they were completely different personalities.


(On explaining why she never tapped on-screen) I was pulled up as a ballet dancer and I wasn't used to pounding the floor with bent knees.


The censors were always there when I was on the set. When I was held up. in a lift (in "Deep in My Heart") they were up on ladders to see if I was properly covered.
