"Actors and writers need to come back to the theater because it's a place where you can learn. You have to pay your dues; and people who haven't paid their dues in the theater, I think, have a hard time creating a whole career." --Joanne Woodward quoted at, June 22, 2000.

"There aren't a lot of movies for people our age, and I was never terribly enamored of making movies -- mainly because I like to work on stage. I didn't make a lot of movies. Maybe 12 [Editor's note: actually 26]. I'm very happy doing what I'm doing now: I like to direct and act occasionally on stage. Once in a while, I do television. It's more likely that somebody my age can find a part in television." --Woodward to, June 22, 2000.

She became the chairman of board and financial backer for "Dancers", a Manhattan-based dance company in the mid-1970s.

Received the American Jewish Committee's William J. German Human Relations Award.
