Here, we’ve compiled a list of the best Tracey Ullman Quotes. Let’s look at these pieces of wisdom. We definitely have something to learn from them!
It’s funny – if you impersonate somebody, they have no idea it’s them.
I hate clowns.
As you get older, you realize it’s work. It’s that fine line between love and companionship. But passionate love? I’d love to know how to make that last.
My mum would like to see me on the cover of ‘Good Housekeeping’ demonstrating children’s toys with some nice lipstick on.
I’m fascinated by Bollywood.
I like infomercials.
I just want to do good work.
Every character I do is based on someone I know.
There’s nothing I won’t attempt.
I love John Waters. There’s stuff in it that’s beyond the boundaries of my taste, but his movies have always been like that.
I never worked with a dialogue coach before, but I’d hate it if an American did a British accent and didn’t do it well. It would be insulting.
I’m not a film snob.
I wish I could believe that one person could make a difference.
I like being the odd one out in L.A. Because if you conform, you become something you hate. I love being the odd one out. It’s not about ‘Look at me! Look at me!’ It’s about really becoming someone else.
You become so encapsulated in this world of being a star. People listen to what you say, you have this voice, it becomes unreal and you become far removed from the people you came from.
I’m as famous as I want to be.
I’ve always had to create my own markets and I’ve always been at a juncture in my career.
I’m not a crazy, party-going sort of person.
I used to dress up and impersonate our next-door neighbor, Miss Cox. She wore rubber boots, a wool hat, and her nose always dripped.
Why does everyone think the future is space helmets, silver foil, and talking like computers, like a bad episode of Star Trek?
It’s sometimes shocking to find out what people really believe in.
I love documentaries, I like observing real people.
I’ve always gotten a positive reaction to doing African-American characters.
There are different types of love, and my love for my child is like me and my mum. We’ve gone through a lot of rocky patches, but we never stop loving.
The show I did in England catered to a broad range of people. I like that. I don’t want nouveau cult status, though I know we’ve got that sort of audience in the states.
Work is important to me. I want to do things for principle, not just for the sake of doing them.
I worked with Paul McCartney for a while and saw what it does to you to be treated like a god for twenty years.
My influences were Peter Sellers and the great British character actors.
I think serial monogamy says it all.
There were no examples of girls like myself becoming successful actresses. To be an actress in England was a serious, upper-middle class girl’s profession. I just thought I would never be accepted unless I pretended to become somebody I wasn’t.
I hope I never get so hard up I have to do advertisements. I’ve gotten ridiculous offers.
It’s the poignancy and sadness in things that gets to me.
I never wanted to do political satire because it seems too surface to me.
I’m usually put off by performers when they get political.
A lot of stand-up comedy is embarrassing: too many idiots doing it in orange neckties against brick walls. I find most sitcoms embarrassing, too, because they seem so forced.
