If you’re a preacher, you talk for a living, so even if you don’t make sense, you learn to make nonsense eloquently.

I dream of the day when I can stay home and have a little time like other people to do things I like to do. I want to be just a woman, not a breadwinner, but I have to keep working so the money will come in to support my children.

Mariska Hargitay on her mom as a role model

Jayne with her two youngest children, Mariska and Tony

“People would always ask me if I had seen her movies. I was not interested in her film persona. I wanted her to be my mom and know something about who she was: who she loved, what made her sad, and I wanted to know how I was like her. I wanted to hear real stories.”

“I think she was ahead of her time. She was a wonder-woman. She had a career and five children. She was sexy, played the violin and had an amazingly high IQ. She had a zest for life, lived every minute to the fullest. She did it all.”

Jayne and Jack Benny

JAYNE MANSFIELD 
I just can’t control myself. When I’m near you, I’m crazy about you.
JACK BENNY 
Well, I’m – I’m crazy about you, too, Jayne, but it’s so ridiculous. I mean, look at the difference in our ages.
JAYNE MANSFIELD 
There’s not that much difference, Jack. I’m twenty-six, and you’re thirty-nine.
JACK BENNY
I know, but I was thinking. Twenty-five years from now, when you’ll be fifty-one, and I’ll be thirty-nine.

I have committed my life to helping the poor, and I believe that if more companies followed Wal-Mart`s lead in providing opportunity and savings to those who need it most, more Americans battling poverty would realize the American dream.

Jayne Mansfield quote

To establish yourself as an actress, you have to become well known. A girl just starting out, I would tell her to concentrate on acting, but she doesn`t have to go around wearing blankets.

Jayne about pink

“I’ve been identified with pink throughout my career, but I’m not as crazy about it as I’ve led people to believe. My favorite colors are actually neutrals — black and white — but then who thinks of a movie queen in black and white? Everything has to be in living color.”   Jayne Mansfield

Mariska Hargitay on a famous photo of her mom

image

“There’s this picture of her in a director’s chair with her measurements on the back: 40-21-35. When I look at that picture part of me says, ‘Mom, I love your sense of humor.’ But the other part of me says, ‘No, your name is supposed to go there. Your body is not who you are.”
Mariska Hargitay
