“I was very uncomfortable in the habit-all that starched white stuff. I smoked at the time and used to love to walk down the halls of CBS with a cigarette dangling out of my mouth. People were just aghast.”More Donna Mills [08/15/2006 12:08:00]
“That's certainly what I grew up with-ballet and musical comedy. My mother taught ballroom dancing and, I think, would have liked to have been a dancer herself. So she pushed me a lot when I was very young, but I loved it. All I really wanted to be was a dancer. There's a discipline in dance that you don't get anywhere else.”More Donna Mills [08/15/2006 12:08:00]
“Once I left Knots Landing, I didn't shop for years. I was so tired of shopping!”More Donna Mills [08/15/2006 12:08:00]

“I thought it was very important that femininity wasn't lost.”More Donna Mills [08/15/2006 12:08:00]
“I always wanted to go against hat grain because it was too restricting.”More Donna Mills [08/15/2006 12:08:00]
“I was always cutting dialogue out when we were rehearsing, and when I produced movies, too. I felt that people don't say things in life-they act, they do things. I always wanted my characters doing, rather than saying what they were doing-which was redundant.”More Donna Mills [08/15/2006 12:08:00]
“I found through my fan mail that women... really wanted a role model.”More Donna Mills [08/15/2006 12:08:00]

“Early on in my career, I'd go into the makeup trailer, and they'd spend an hour doing my makeup, and I would hate it. I'd go into the bathroom, wash it off and start over again, which took an enormous amount of time. So I just started doing it myself.”More Donna Mills [08/15/2006 12:08:00]
“Dallas and Dynasty would be finished at 4:30 in the afternoon. On Knots, we never shot less than a 12-hour day. Everybody tried to make it special. And I think it showed.”More Donna Mills [08/15/2006 12:08:00]
“I was brought up Catholic, and my family is still very religious.”More Donna Mills [08/15/2006 12:08:00]
“The lighting is so important. One thing that makes me nuts about the lighting now is that they spend an enormous amount of time lighting the set, the background. But the most important thing in the scene is the actor.”More Donna Mills [08/15/2006 12:08:00]
“I kept bugging them about making it more upscale, because I felt Abby, through her cleverness and business sense, was a character who would move up. And that's what she did.”More Donna Mills [08/15/2006 12:08:00]
“If there is anything I would do differently in my life, it is that I would study business more. I'm trying to teach my daughter Chloe at an early age about investing and money so she's not afraid of it.”More Donna Mills [08/15/2006 12:08:00]

“They sent me to catechism classes and then to first grade in a Catholic school, and apparently I cried and moaned and bitched so much that they took me out.”More Donna Mills [08/15/2006 12:08:00]
“A lot of actors just do whatever they do, and wherever the camera is, it is. They don't pay much attention, but I always did. I was always very close to the camera crew. They were my best buddies, no matter what movie or show I was doing.”More Donna Mills [08/15/2006 12:08:00]
“You know, when they called me about the role, I thought Knots Landing was a show about a houseboat with Andy Griffith!”More Donna Mills [08/15/2006 12:08:00]
“I was tired of playing the goodie-two-shoes.”More Donna Mills [08/15/2006 12:08:00]
