Quotes

#Quote
1 (On Blue City (1986)) Michelle Manning and I had been close friends. And she was so excited about the chance to direct that my feeling was it would be really great to work with someone I really liked and help contribute to their first big project. I was very naive, I guess, because I kept hoping it would turn out OK, that somehow all the stuff that was missing would miraculously appear when they edited it all together. I guess that's not the way it works, so I was disappointed.
2 I don't get hassled on the street. People do come up to me and say they enjoy my movies and it's a really good feeling. One day I was in the supermarket and this little girl came up and said, "Are you Ally? Oh God, I love The Breakfast Club (1985) so much.' It made me feel so good."
3 When something major happens to you, you have to adapt yourself to it, but I've always been the same inside. When I was a little girl, I was the way I am now and in the future I'll still be the same. Outside circumstances change and you have to develop different skills, but it's all fun in its own way. I don't keep money in the center of focus. I know that I have enough to support myself for a little while, so I can wait and do things I want to do.
4 [inteview with Alissa Quart, 1998] I had to leave [Hollywood]. The roles I wanted weren't there.
5 All I care about for Christmas and 2003 is health and happiness for my daughter.
6 I am really close to my parents. My mother and my father do not live together. We children spend half of the week at one house and half of the week at the other house. We have been living as we do for six years. I get along well with my brother Patrick Sheedy, who is ten, and my sister Meghan Sheedy, who is thirteen. We have an iguana and rabbit as pets.
7 I started writing because I used to tell stories to the children who lived nearby and when I was six I started writing them down. I write poetry and plays, too, and writing is important to me. It is important for me to express my feelings and thoughts. If I'm feeling angry or wonderful or upset or happy I just write it out and reread the feelings over and over again. When I'm depressed I read something I wrote when I was happy and I can feel a great lift in my spirits. I love writing!
8 It's so unfair. The term "Brat Pack" is so condescending.
