[About President George W. Bush’s daughters being caught with alcohol as minors] ‘We all need to take a deep breath and think about being a Bush daughter and having that cross to bear.

[2001] ‘I’ve been sober now for eighteen years. With all the drugs, psychedelics and narcotics I did, I was [really] an alcoholic. Honestly, I only used to do cocaine so I could sober up and drink more. My last five years of drinking was a nightmare. I was drinking a half-gallon of rum with a fifth of rum on the side, in case I ran out, 28 beers a day, and three grams of cocaine just to keep me moving around. And I thought I was doing fine because I wasn’t crawling around drunk on the floor.’

Teresa Palmer undergoes massive transformation | WHO Magazine

TERESA PALMER (1986 – )                            

South Australian actress Teresa Palmer portrayed Australian jockey Michelle Payne (she rode the winner of the Melbourne Cup in 2015, when she crossed the line first on Prince of Penzance), in the 2019 movie Ride Like a Girl. Teresa had to learn to ride horses for the role and was asked about the dangers involved in horse-racing.: ‘There’s always an air of caution. Now that I’m a mother, I’m more cautious. I was hyper-aware of dangers and the risks of getting on a horse, but I also knew I was protected in many ways. And hearing Michelle talk about her falls that really hit home. It is such an incredible achievement, winning the Melbourne Cup, being a female winning the Melbourne Cup, and facing all the adversity, but to also have to overcome those injuries, It is achievement, after achievement, after achievement. You couldn’t make the story up.’

[The Egyptian actor who portrayed Sherif Ali in the 1962 classic movie Lawrence of Arabia]: ‘I lived in America for a long time. Only ten percent of all Americans have a passport. In other words, ninety percent never left America. They don’t know anything. The typical Middle Eastern man is far more intelligent.’

[On being the ‘only Arab’ working in Hollywood]: ‘I had to be very careful. For example, Columbia Pictures signed a five-year contract with me when I made Lawrence of Arabia in 1962, but they didn’t pay me anything. When I made Doctor Zhivago in 1965 they sold me to MGM for $15,000. I made the film for $15,000. My American lawyer said, ‘I can sue them’, and I said, no, leave it, I don’t want them to think of me as someone who only wants money.’

[On Barbra Streisand] ‘I thought she was not very attractive at first. But gradually she cast her spell over me. I fell madly in love with her talent. The feeling was mutual for four months – the time it took to shoot the movie.’
