Geena Davis - Personal Quotes

 

"I have an elbow that bends the wrong way, and I'd do things like stand in an elevator and the doors would close, and I'd pretend that my arm had got caught in it, and then I'd scream, 'Ow, ow, put it back!'"

[Talking about the shows her children watch]: "As I watched kids' programs with them, I became concerned about gender balance and stereotypes. Boys take up much more space on TV than in real life."
