"To me the success of my life is the reflection of my presence, be it mother, wife or friend. All my life I've been unstoppable, but now I feel unswayable. That feels like success to me.
"As for acting, I cared very much about being a good actress, and I learned over the years. But it wasn't my main motivating force in life; that was my drive for relationships. The concept of letting go for the sake of a marriage is unheard of in Hollywood. I did not make popular decision. I never moved to Hollywood. I wouldn't take my clothes off to act. Hollywood never owned me. My need for love owned me." --O'Neill quoted in THE NEW YORK TIMES. April 27, 1999
O'Neill is the founder of Point of View Productions through which she develops properties.
Her line of skin care products is sold on the Shop at Home network.
She is a show horse breeder and broke her back in a fall from a horse.
O'Neill has been fairly candid about her life, including her nine marriages to eight men and nine miscarriages. She detailed all in her memoirs.
She accidentally wounded herself in 1982 when she moved a gun she did not know was loaded. Her then-husband was charged with weapons possession but was found not guilty.
In Tennessee in November 1996, O'Neill was arrested and charged with speeding and driving while under the influence. She was later cleared of all charges.
