Quotes

#Quote
1 Although we played twins we were poles apart as human beings. It didn't keep us from getting along well, but we were being raised in very different homes. I felt terrible about her death, but I wasn't all that much surprised. - JW, referring to the drug death of former co-star Anissa Jones
2 [Family Affair (1966)] was much too sugar-and-spice. We never lied or cheated. No children are as angelic as we were supposed to be."
