List of Shelley Winters quotes.

(on Robert Taylor who was her co-star in A House Is Not a Home (1964)) He was the sweetest man to work with. By that I mean he was cooperative and understanding in contrast to most leading men today, who try to either elbow you out of camera range or are off in a corner somewhere practicing 'Method acting'.


(on Oscar Levant) A tortured man who sprayed his loathing on anyone within range.


(on Robert De Niro) Bobby needs someone to watch over him. He doesn't even know enough to wear a coat in the wintertime. When we did "Bloody Mama" he didn't even know how much money they were paying him. I found out how little it was and insisted they at least give him some expense money.
