“I never played politics, I was never a party girl, and I never slept with any of the producers.” ~ Ann Miller
In 1979 interview: “I have worked like a dog all my life, honey. Dancing, as Fred Astaire said, is next to ditch-digging. You sweat and you slave and the audience doesn’t think you have a brain in your head.” ~ Ann Miller
“At MGM, I always played the second feminine lead. I was never the star in films. I was the brassy, good-hearted showgirl. I never really had my big moment on the screen. Broadway gave me the stardom that my soul kind of yearned for.” ~ Ann Miller
