ANNETTE o'toole Quotes

You'll hear this - & more! - on Really Famous podcast.

“I did that thing that you never do, that you see people do in movies. I went into the bathroom and silent-screamed and danced around, jumped up and down and danced around with no screaming.”
On watching husband Michael McKean's performance as Chuck McGill on Better Call Saul: "I was shaking my head. I was looking from the television to him. I said, 'I’m floored. I don’t know what to say. That’s amazing work, amazing work'”
"[The writer/director of Women Who Kill] said, 'It’s about a podcast but there’s this part, this Hannibal Lechter-y part for a woman, and we’d love for you to do it. I said, 'Oh my God, please! So she sends it to me and offers it to me."
“I was there at the Hollywood Bowl when John Travolta auditioned for a tour or LA-based production of Grease. I saw that audition and I said, ‘I’ve never seen anything like that. You are going to be such a big star.’”

On working with Martin Short: “I would go home with my face aching because I had been laughing so hard.”

“I don’t like vanity. Whenever I see it in myself I try to tamp it down.”

“It makes me think, Well, I should’ve just come to New York originally. What was I doing wasting my time doing all this other stuff?
