PIA ZADORA QUOTES

American actress & singer (1953- )

I walk into a casino and I feel like I'm home. It takes me back to those days. I want to hear Frank singing in the background, drink a glass of chardonnay and hear slots. It feels safe, like I'm in a cocoon; I'm back in the womb.

I'd become a cult figure to a certain extent because of my movies, but unfortunately it was because of how bad they were!

You know, after the film I said to myself, "It's a good thing you were so stupid not to be nervous. If I'd been nervous, it would have ruined the whole thing."

I had basically the same stigma that Bo Derek did -- being created by a Svengali -- which took me a long time to overcome.

I went through a whole bunch of crap with my lousy movies and pop records. I had people behind me kind of steering me in that direction, but it wasn't really my bag.

Fifteen years ago I knew I had to settle into being a mom and give them a normal life, which I never had. I was always traveling. I had tours. I wanted my kids to settle down, and we kind of did it together.... It was a bumpy transition. There was no director telling me what to do. No script, but I really enjoyed it. I even became president of the PTA. Doing the laundry was a meditative experience. Now, when I start to get nervous and stressed, I go in and start to fold towels.

I can't relate to Mansfield or Monroe. The only one I can relate to is Bardot. First of all, there's a certain physical similarity between us. Second of all, she was very strong--she didn't have that affected sexuality.

Nobody ever really thought I could do anything except look sexy on a poster and go shopping.

I'm at the point in my life when I'm ready to have a baby. Something real in a crazy world.

Maybe we'll go trick-or-treating for Halloween, and I'll go as Pia Zadora.

I've been working for a long time now. When I was 21 I stopped and got married. I tried for a while to be the perfect wife, society this, society that, but it wasn't working, so after about a year I went back to work.

This guy, when I met him he was 47 years old, he'd just come out of a divorce and he was, you know, very desirable. He had every Cosmo cover girl and undercover girl. They were just coming out of his ears. Baking cakes on his doorstep, one in the back door, one on the roof, one waiting in the basement, another in the elevator. So I know I have to keep an eye on him.

You know, it's not the people in Hollywood who go to see movies that will make a movie successful; it's the people all around the country; it's word-of-mouth.

I'm one Pia Zadora, the same way all the time. That's why I'm happy. It took me a long time to get to the point where could be myself all the time.
