"In this country, there is currently too much emphasis on sports, which brings out aggression, whereas the arts bring us together in harmony. Is there ant better example of disciplined cooperation than a symphony orchestra?" --Celeste Holm, quoted in The New York Times, April 25, 1996.

About the making of "All About Eve", Holm was quoted in Vanity Fair (April 1999):

"Bette Davis was so rude, so constantly rude. . . . Why I walked onto the set about the first or second day and said 'Good morning,' and do you know her reply? She said, 'Oh shit, good manners.' I never spoke to her again--ever."

"There was one bitch in the cast [of "All About Eve"]: Celeste Holm." --Bette Davis

Holm was knighted by King Olav of Norway in 1979.

Holm was arrested for protesting the demolition of two classic Broadway theaters in 1982.
