NOTES

"As an actress, I like forcefulness in a director, but I also like to be heard, listened to." --Madeleine Stowe quoted in Daily News, March 29, 1998.

"When I think of actors being sexy on-screen, I realize that personally, I find that a lot of directors I worled with are dar seier thatn the actors I've worked with, because they're good at what they do. I'm just so blown away at that level of competence, it's a total turn-on to me. Watching a guy do something he's really good at is sexy. And that's why so much sex doesn't work on the screen--because a lot of these guys have no idea what they're doing! Just don't tell anyone I said that." --Stowe quoted in Movieline, February 1998.

Robert Altman described Stowe's personality as "not push-around-able, a kind of cultural looseness which is either an attitude or lack of attitude."

"I love the life of an actor because you spend brief amounts of time with other people and then you just leave. I need to be alone a lot, and I need the outdoors." --Madeleine Stowe quoted in Los Angeles Times, January 30, 1994.

"Madeleine is so delicate and graceful, but she has a strong, iron will. It's unusual to have someone with her kind of fragile body language in a woman who is really tough and so utterly fearless when it comes to authority." --"Bad Girls" director Jonathan Kaplan to Los Angeles Times, January 30, 1994.
