1 [on her character in Lolita (1962)] I feel sorry for her. She's neurotic and pathetic and only interested in herself.
2 [on her The Night of the Iguana (1964) co-star Richard Burton] Richard Burton drank so much at night that the next morning the alcohol literally oozed out of his pores. He gave off a terrible odor--playing a scene with him could be most unpleasant.
3 [on her The Night of the Iguana (1964) co-star Richard Burton] I wasn't very impressed by the relationship between him and [Elizabeth Taylor]. Richard was very domineering and Elizabeth meek. She would do whatever he wanted her to.
