"I look like a female impersonator with these long skinny legs of mine. I'm 5'9", I eat like a horse, and I couldn't become a ballet dancer because I got too big. When I rose up on my toes I was 10'6" and my feet collapsed. Imagine how I'd look, prancing about in a fluffy tutu."--Kay Kendall, quoted in newspaper interview, 1957

On Rex Harrison: "She knew how to handle him; she could really cut him down to size. She would say, 'come along, you stuffy bugger,' or something like that--which he was."--sister Kim Kendall, quoted in undated newspaper article

"Well, in the movies, let's face it, you're making faces at a camera. You feel foolish. People say I'm glamorous but really, I'm not. Why do you suppose producers make me get under those huge hats--to show my face? Don't believe it!"--Kay Kendall, quoted in undated CUE MAGAZINE.
