Quotes

List of Dianne Wiest quotes.

I'd like to play a real cold, mean mass murderer. Some cruel, hard-bitten women, like the roles Glenn Close gets, just to show that I am capable of not being vulnerable and not being fragile on screen. (on being typecast as fragile or neurotic characters)


My first meeting with Woody Allen lasted 30 seconds. He looked at me, said hello, asked someone to take a Polaroid, thanked me very much and I was shown the door. When I came out, the woman due after me was still doing the same thing as when I went in. She was shocked - 'What happened?' But that's how it is. My agent had warned me. Not hers. She was stunned.


(speaking in 1987) "All I've done since is three days on 'Bright Lights, Big City' as 'Michael J. Fox'' mother. That's what an Oscar does for you."
