When I wrote my first book, 'Koolaids,' I felt rejected and not wanted. -Rabih Alameddine

I don't play Hollywood maids, the hee-hee kind of people who are so in love with their madam's children they have no time for their own. -Esther Rolle

'Hollywood maids' are so idiotic. They grin at everything. I told Norman Lear I didn't want to play a maid because of that 'hee-hee/grin-grin' attitude, and he said, 'Who said I wanted that?' He told me he wanted two strong women that are the black and white of the same coin. I said, 'Oh, well – in that case, I'll be right there!' -Esther Rolle

I become so sentimental on planes: I could be watching 'Bridesmaids' and start crying. -Julia Stiles

For a time, I believed not in God nor Santa Claus, but in mermaids.

I think the sea swallowed dozens of tea sets – tossed in abandon off liners or consigned to the tide by jilted brides. I collected a shiver of china bits, with borders of larkspur and birds or braids of daisies. No two patterns ever matched. -Sylvia Plath

It's hard to brief in the Oval. You know, you can't – no visual aids, hard to roll out something in front of somebody. -Michael Hayden

Hearing aids didn't cause any problem with my social life, my career, no problem at all, and I've been wearing them for a long time.

'Bridesmaids,' I think, opened up a door to allow women to show a bunch of different women in different ways of being funny. It was kind of like an arrival moment. -Kay Cannon

They sell these golf aids that attach to your knee and your head and are supposed to keep your swing correct. It's futile beyond belief.

People with straight faces saying this thing will take strokes off your game – that's my peculiar obsession. -Christopher Guest

My daughter recommended Chris O'Dowd to me after seeing him in 'Bridesmaids,' so I watched that and his sitcom, 'The IT Crowd.' When I was over in London, we met up, and I knew immediately he was the right person. -Christopher Guest

The odds of having films made which star women… Everyone still references one movie: 'Bridesmaids!' -Patricia Clarkson

When I was growing up, I actually went through, in New York City, blackouts when we had to close the windows and worry about air raids.

Romero

I come from a long line of below-stairs maids and gardeners. Good ol' peasant stock. My mother and her sister made a quantum leap out of that life. Then I made another quantum leap. -Julie Andrews

I ended up living in braids. It was the '90s – thin braids were very popular – and my mom took me to a lady's kitchen. I got it done, and I've never stopped. -Jessica Williams

My natural hair is who I am. I have lots of braids, and I have lots of twists, but it's all very low maintenance. I feel like I can get up and go and get out of the house. I just don't have it in me to get my hair done all the time. -Jessica Williams

My parents separated when I was young, and as a result, my father had to learn how to braid our hair on the nights my sisters and I would stay with him. We would arrive to school the next morning with these incredibly endearing lopsided braids he had fashioned. This may have expedited the process of my learning how to braid my own hair. -Hailey Gates

I think one of the great things about 'Bridesmaids' is that it's a big studio comedy, but all of the relationships in it are so grounded that you're watching a real movie. -Adam Scott

In the end, a lifeform is always a hybrid, a being endowed with some X-power such as being able to breathe for a few seconds out of water. That's how evolution works. Spectrally. We are all mermaids. -Timothy Morton

I played several maids in my career. I was tired of the maid after 'Far From Heaven.' I said, no more maids. Until I realized how difficult it was to get a role other than a maid, sometimes, in Hollywood, and sometimes you have to choose your battles, for lack of a better term. -Viola Davis

Particularly for back-to-school, braids are a great way of showcasing your personal style. It doesn't stop at your clothes; it extends to how you wear your hair. -Elaine Welteroth

I think braids over all allow you to play with your identity a little bit and just have some fun and show off your creativity. -Elaine Welteroth

When I was young, I dreamt of being a starlet in Hollywood. But there comes a point in every African American's life when you realize the limitations, that you could only play maids or some little supporting role. Even Lena Horne couldn't get good parts. -Ruby Dee

Dad could speak with a strong voice. And luckily, he was very good at lip-reading, so he was able to disguise his deafness well. He tried various hearing aids but would find them fiddly and uncomfortable, and worse, they often made horrible high-pitched noises. -Rachel Shenton

Every day. Every single day, I can watch 'Bridesmaids.' -Lashana Lynch

If you're the handsome white guy, you tend to get cast as guys who are meant to be convincing in their jobs. What I've been fortunate enough to do, whether it's playing a certified idiot on '30 Rock' or a weirdo in 'Bridesmaids,' is play against that in a lot of ways. -Jon Hamm

My hair was curly, and everyone else's was straight or in micro braids. I didn't have a lot of money, so I shopped at thrift stores. And I'm petite – I never looked shapely.

When people talked about O.J. Simpson being race-neutral, that was a race card. It just meant we don't think of him as black. But race-neutral is just like flesh-tone Band-aids. It's not neutral; it's white. -Kimberle Williams Crenshaw

I've always loved mermaids! -Jazz Jennings

Mermaids are just the most whimsical, mystical creatures of all time. -Jazz Jennings

I think women have always been funny. But when Tina Fey became head writer at 'Saturday Night Live,' the culture shifted, and women gained a bigger voice in comedy. It's not as if Hollywood producers are feminists. It's more that Hollywood said, ''Bridesmaids' made us so much money, all we want now is funny women.' -Cecily Strong

I don't know what aids creativity. All I know is that it feels natural to hold a guitar in my hands and sing. -Mark Kozelek

'Bridesmaids' was phenomenal. It deserves every accolade it's gotten, and it's exciting for every woman in comedy. -Janet Varney

When Melissa McCarthy came out with 'Bridesmaids,' all of a sudden you saw a plus-sized woman who had three dimensions, was not an appendage, was pivotal to the plot. -Donna Lynne Champlin

I was born in 1926, right. In 1939, war broke out. And that has a tremendous effect on everybody's life because the basic principle of a human being is whether they're gonna be alive or dead in the morning. Now with the war on, you can't guarantee that, especially living in a city like Leeds where we had air raids and all that. -Jimmy Savile

Man, I loved The Smiths so much. I thought they looked awesome, and Morrissey had hearing aids like my Papaw. -Ryan Adams

I decided that it's going to be both Joe and Nick. Dani has an older and a younger sister, so it works out really well. I can have two best men, and she can have two maids of honor. -Kevin Jonas

I would never mess around with braids and curls and everything. -Amanda Schull

When you go to hotels, who are the maids who work at most of those hotels? A lot of them are immigrants. We take pride in that because we're in a better place and want to provide for our families. -Kamaru Usman

I was so pleasantly surprised for 'Siren' to add quite an original idea to that: One that is a predator. One that is very intelligent but still has to survive in the ocean with all of its challenges. -Eline Powell
