"No one has any idea of the degradation of choosing to be a species that lives between chance and oblivion, wading with an artistic banner protruding out of one's heart into the muck and mire of the business world. It's like thinking you're standing in heaven and then turning around to see that you are in the midst of the depth and chaos of pure, unadulterated h-e-l-l." --Diane Ladd commenting on the acting profession in Daily News, September 19, 1991.
"There's more of Diane Ladd in Mother [her character in "Rambling Rose"] than in any other part I've played, and that's because of the spiritual overtone. I can say a pretty good curse word now and then, I do have a temper. But I consider myself a spiritual explorer." --Ladd to Daily News, September 19, 1991.
Ladd is working on a novel and is studying for a Ph.D. in esoteric psychology. --From New York Post, September 19, 1991.
About directing ex-husband Bruce Dern in "Mrs. Munck": "There was one intimate scene between [actress Kelly] Preston and Dern that had to be reshot, but I couldn't get Kelly back on the set. So I had to put on her wig and sit with Bruce in the car. It's hard enough to have his ex-wife directing him, but then to suddenly have me sitting next to him ... He was bungling lines, everything." --Ladd to Daily News, January 28, 1996.
