In May 2001, Hannah won a judgment in a libel case against the British tabloid the Daily Mirror which had claimed she missed rehearsals of "The Seven Year Itch" to attend a birthday party for her dog. In reality, the actress had traveled to Toronto for a promotional appearance for "Dancing at the Blue Iguana".
"Let's just say I've let my lovers treat me a lot worse than I've let my friends treat me." --Darryl Hannah quoted in Gear, March 1999.
"I had such a horrendous time. Here was a constant battle between director Oliver Stone and me...He's a misogynist."---Hannah on filming her role in "Wall Street" Gear March 1999
"Her image--and perhaps her career--is based on her continued casting as a fey, coltish child-woman. The mermaid in "Splash". The performance artist in "Legal Eagles". The astronomer in "Roxanne". In each, a space cadet, with the faintest whisper of a spine beneath the languor. In each, a waif poised for tears, for flight: someone you want to rescue, to protect, to cherish." --From Vanity Fair, January 1990.
Sister Page Hannah reflects on the differences as children between herself and Daryl: "Asked about Daryl, I usually answer that she is just another sister. Daryl and I were quite different, and we still are. I've always been more outgoing. Daryl was a very private, rather dreamy person with her own room and a "Please Knock" sign on the door and parakeets and hamsters running loose inside. I was more involved in the real world, working as an assistant teacher at school and baby-sitting. I was--and still am--amazed by babies. I always said I wanted to have six of my own. Daryl used to say I was sick." --From Cosmopolitan, September 1990.
"I'm the kind of person who goes to a movie and if there is anything violent, I have to cover my eyes. I've seen some of "Kill Bill" and I haven't had to do that once, which is pretty weird for me. Quentin's violence in the film is done with such a specific style and humor that it is violent, but it is almost like watching a cartoon because it is so stylized..."---Hannah on the violence in "Kill Bill" www.criticdoctor.com July 12, 2003
"It definitely doesn't hurt to do a big movie, but generally they aren't as satisfying But they don't hurt your bank account. One of the good things about growing older is that you realize that life is short, and it is more important to do things you care about. It's important to me to do things that mean something to me. Occasionally, I will need to do a big movie to pay the bills, but my focus is on stuff that allows me to express myself."---Hannah to Underground Online 2002
