I put up a wonderful front in A View from A Broad and I’m proud of it. Writers should embroider stories all the time. They should entertain people and make them feel good. To entertain, you have to do a certain amount of acting, on the stage as well as on the page. My first book was a lot of acting.(Saturday Review, 1983)

From the inside looking out: “Friends” co-star Lisa Kudrow, who recently wed French advertising executive Michel Stern, has ended up with more hiatus time to enjoy her new marriage than she expected. The actress – part of a series team that has exploded in popularity – had expected to co-star in an independent feature film this summer, but, she says, “It didn’t work out. … I’m being very careful, because, especially now – when the series’ success is new – people are watching us and what we do.

It’s best not to be too pompous about yourself…

It’s best not to be too pompous about yourself,” she says. “It’s better not to need a limousine for your head. Although people think I’m just Divine, I have my share of worries. I worry about growing old and losing my shape, my looks, my hair. As an entertainer, that’s my stock and trade. Oh, and I also worry that I don’t dance as well as Michael Jackson.

Early in 1979, a girlfriend mentioned to Amanda McBroom that the producers of a new film, “The Rose,” were looking for songs from a variety of composers.

“Well, I didn’t write rock ‘n’ roll songs, and this movie was based on the life of Janis Joplin,” McBroom said. “Then one day, I tried out a new song I’d written on my husband. And he turned to me and said, `Amanda, you’ve just written a standard.’ “

The film’s producers initially hated “The Rose” when they heard the song. “But the musical director, Paul Rothschild, loved it and sent it to Bette (Midler),” McBroom said. “And with her nod of approval, my life and career were changed forever.” Read More
