On her famous magazine cover: "It brought Time down to my level--it didn't bring me up to Time's level. It had nothing to do with my popularity." --Diane Lane quoted in Empire, December 1999.

Elizabeth Weitzman: Do you worry about maintaining artistic integrity, since you need to remain visible to stay on top?

Diane Lane: The industry's memory is quite short, it's true. I'm fascinated by how Hollywood has changed since I started. Today it's about immediate delivery. There's less risk and less art. ...

--From Interview, May 1999.

Elizabeth Weitzman: It does seem like every article about you asks, "Will this be her time for superstardom?" What's that like?

Diane Lane: [sighs] I don't know. It's the holy grail of questions, What's the missing ingredient? Maybe that I want some part of me to be private and secret and precious just to myself.

" ... There are so many options of how to create a persona--it doesn't need to be mega or nothing. Why I'm still here, I don't know, but I'm not going anywhere. This is just the second act. The third act is when you can tear off all the burdensome armor. You can get out there and really do some great work when you're not worried about your tits or your ass or your eyeliner."

--From Interview, May 1999.

In an ironic twist, Lane's co-star in "A Walk on the Moon" Viggo Mortensen was one of two actors considered for the leading role in "Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes". He lost the role to Christopher Lambert, to whom Lane was married from 1988 to 1994.

"This whole tough cookie thing stuck on me from the teenage years. I was always playing this tough sort of girl." --Lane's response to whether people misperceive her, from GQ, April 1999.

"I don't suffer fools gladly and I'm out of the people-changing business. Being a single mom, I find my plate is quite full. I look forward to marriage again, but I've lived the fantasy, I've realized it and relinquished it." --Lane quoted in Daily News, March 21, 1999.

"The illusion of having control is as scary as not having control at all. The problem with film is that you can rent it on video 15 years later." --Diane Lane quoted in Vanity Fair, February 1999.
