Julie Walters quotes (34)

As soon as I gave birth, it was as if you understand them. They become people, not kids. You start to identify with them. You see yourself in them.
Julie Walters   Category:

Being a mother adds another emotional dimension, a feel for children that I didn't have before I had one. They were a pain before.
Julie Walters   Category:

I always loved my mother, felt loved, but she was judgmental. Her father in Ireland didn't approve of women generally, and she took on his values. She believed her own mother was foolish.
Julie Walters   Category:

I can understand why people get annoyed at being remembered for one thing, but a lot of actors aren't remembered for anything. I don't mind that.

I felt my mother about the place. I don't think she haunts me, but I wouldn't put it past her.
Julie Walters   Category:

I keep seeing myself in my daughter, and I see my mother in me and in her. Bloody hell.
Julie Walters   Category:

I never had any acting heroes. I never really went to the theatre.
Julie Walters   Category:

I never wanted to become an actress because I'd read great literature or seen great Shakespeare. It was more just wanting to understand what the people were really like, why they said all the strange things they did.
Julie Walters   Category:

I think comedy's something you can't learn. It's an instinct, which makes it rather elusive.
Julie Walters   Category:

I wanted above all else not to be like my mum.
Julie Walters   Category:

I was always someone who lived in the future all the time, it was always the next thing - dreams of escape.
Julie Walters   Category:

I was asked about doing a nude shoot for men's magazine GQ. I thought it was the funniest thing I'd ever heard.
Julie Walters   Category:

I was having my teens in my 30s.
Julie Walters   Category:

I'd like to think there'll be too much of real life going on for me to want to do much acting.
Julie Walters   Category:

I'd love to be in another film, but they haven't asked me. I think it's a shame but the prospects of me doing another one now are remote. Please do campaign on my behalf.
Julie Walters   Category:

I'm massively talented, and very, very beautiful in person; the public don't really realise that.
Julie Walters   Category:

I'm more selective now I've got a family. I don't want to work all the time. My daughter's 12; I don't want to miss out on her life. Soon she'll be a teenager; she won't want me around.
Julie Walters   Category:

I'm too young at 50. I'm not grown up yet. There's part of everybody like that.
Julie Walters   Category:

I'm writing a novel about two actresses who go to New York, because that's what I know about. One has lost touch with reality, disappears and is picked up by a man.
Julie Walters   Category:

It seems that when you get to a certain age you almost give yourself permission to misbehave and say what you think. People allow it, with very old people.
Julie Walters   Category:

It's very strong after the birth. It's extraordinary. You can't watch anything to do with kids being harmed.
Julie Walters   Category:

Jane Austen was an extraordinary woman; to actually be able to survive as a novelist in those days - unmarried - was just unheard of.
Julie Walters   Category:

My grandmother lived with us for a short time while I was a child. Old people tend to be slightly more eccentric - they can behave the way they want.
Julie Walters   Category:

Some people have a terrible stretch between family and work. It is a difficult thing to achieve.
Julie Walters   Category:

Stage is the most exciting. Film is lovely, because it's like a family.
Julie Walters   Category:

Suddenly, you are very much in the present, and you learn it's really the place where you should always live.
