Esther Williams
"Hollywood depresses me. Never has its portrayal of women been so bad. When I grew up my role models were fabulous and strong - Katharine Hepburn, Greta Garbo, Lucille Ball. They made me proud to be a female. Today it’s so different. There were less than 20 good female roles last year. There are just not enough well-written roles for women. They are either hookers, rape victims or lawyers in lingerie. I’m simply howling for reasonableness and tolerance, but some people think I’m outrageous. Just because I’m an actress I don’t feel I should be prevented from taking a public stand."
