Quotes

List of Joan Allen quotes.

How do we escape who we are? I think going to college, I felt freer. I loved the clean slate. I wasn't known as the sort of nerdy, studious girl. I met gay people for the first time in my life. I needed that expansion from a very conservative little town.


I was the good girl. The straight A student, on the honor roll, part of the choir . . . I played the cello badly. I did plays.


I was a very good girl for a long time, that's what really drew me to acting. The stage was the perfect place to be outrageous, to be sad, to be angry, to be all these different things.
