Katharine Hepburn, The Philadelphia Story
“I’m a personality as well as an actress. Show me an actress who isn’t a personality, and you’ll show me a woman who isn’t a star.” ~ Katharine Hepburn
I know there are almost always exceptions to every rule, but I completely understand what she was saying… what’s more, I completely agree with her! Obviously, she isn’t saying that an actress (or actor, as well, for that matter) can’t be incredibly gifted or talented if they aren’t a “personality,” she’s simply saying they aren’t a STAR, all caps.
In fact, the ones best-remembered and celebrated to this day?? They’re almost always the ones who were personalities.
