On Romance Movies: “Anyway, I don’t like to do romance. I’m interested in things that are bigger than romance. I think romance is what keeps everybody down. There’s a place in everyone’s life for it and I know that people long for it, but I think it’s a cheat, because there are other themes that are more powerful. Women are supposed to do romances, not important, metaphysical {films} that deal with questions of morality and intellect.” She pauses. “They (Disney) didn’t think I should do romances? I can do romances. {But} I think you must have a c ertain kind of stature. I don’t think there’s a single person working today that can pull off {a romance}, not in the old sense. Not when you look at Ingrid Bergman and Cary Grant together.” (The Washington Post, 1991) – Bette Midler
