    Aida Turturro Quotes

    • "[The Sopranos] wasn't a set. It was a family."
    • "There was a little attraction [between James and me]. We would fight, though!"
    • "I want to buy everyone the best prosciutto, the best smoked salmon for their bagels. I want to have the best wines. I like to host and be generous."
    • "I'm not a singer. But I can sing!"
    • "Sometimes it's hard...try to enjoy the beautiful moments."
    • "I don't take s**t from people--not for a moment."
    • "I feel love around me always. Sometimes people can't give you things—their time, their support, whatever—because they’re not capable. It doesn’t mean that they don’t want to."
