Before I had the baby (Ross Benjamin) I felt lonely going to work. Now I have deeper, more generous feelings. I feel whole, like a human being.
It took me a long time to find myself and I'm still looking around corners to see if I'm there. I used to wonder, why does Dick love me? After the baby (Ross Benjamin) was born, I could turn around and see it in myself.
He & She (1967) was worth it after what we'd been through. By working together we learned to live with each other again.
(After transfer to the Payne Whitney Psychiatric Clinic in New York): It was horrendous. You're crazy because they say you're crazy. It was especially horrible because I couldn't figure out how to do what they wanted me to so I could get out.
One day during shooting (What's New Pussycat (1965)), I just climbed up the ropes to the catwalk and started walking the beams. Very loudly and clearly I called down to everyone on the set, 'I'm going to jump.' A French technician grabbed me, and there I was, hanging by one arm.
