Quotes by Teri Hatcher
"Just because 'Planes' is an animated movie doesn't mean I don't take my work seriously. You can always push yourself to be better."
"Changing what you don't like about yourself can be empowering, and that's not a bad thing. Feeling secure enough to own what is weak and missing from either your body, mind or spirit and to commit to action to change it is a good thing."
"I'm a woman who carries around all these layers of fear and vulnerability."
"My parents are really well intended, and I think their way of dealing with things is denial and guilt. Nobody wanted to talk about it. But all I did was blame myself."
"I know what it's like to have a young child at the weekend and feel like there is nothing to see in the movie theatre. Family is so important."
