"Do you remember when Marilyn Monroe died? Everybody stopped work, and you could see all that day the same expressions on their faces, the same thought: ‘How can a girl with success, fame, youth, money, beauty … how could she kill herself?’ Nobody could understand it because those are the things that everybody wants, and they can’t believe that life wasn’t important to Marilyn Monroe, or that her life was elsewhere." —Marlon Brando
”It may sound peculiar to say so, because she is no longer with us, but we were very close. Once when we were doing that picture together, I got a call on the set: my younger daughter had had a fall. I ran home and the one person to call was Marilyn. She did an awful lot to boost things up for movies when everything was at a low state; there’ll never be anyone like her for looks, for attitude, for all of it. “— Betty Grable
"I have great faith that her career would have continued. She was one of the greatest draws in the history of motion pictures, and today I think she would have been tops. Marilyn had a childlike quality which made men adore her. Yet women weren’t jealous. Like John Wayne and a few other giants, she had a star quality that had nothing to do with acting… . What women in pictures can compare with her today? Nobody." - Ben Lyon
"Never a week passes when I don’t wish she was still around." - Billy Wilder
"She will go on eternally." - Jackie Kennedy Onassis

"I think you’ve got to love people, all kinds of people, to be able to have an opinion about them that’s worth anything. The whole idea of judging people is crazy. We do what we have to do, and we pay for it. We’re no better than we have to be. We can try to be better, and part of trying is not to condemn other people."
“Well, I think Doctor Who is an extraordinary show and the thing that strikes me about that it’s still here after all this time. And the reason that I think that it’s still here is because of the work of all the writers and the directors and the producers who’ve worked on the show, the work of all — and the actors – and I don’t just mean the fabulous actors who’ve played The Doctor, but all those actors who’ve sweated inside rubber monster costumes and those who had to wear futuristic lurex catsuits. But the real reason – the big reason – that Doctor Who is still with us is because of every single viewer who ever turned on to watch this show – at any age, at any time in its history and in their history – and who took it into their heart because Doctor Who belongs to all of us. Everyone made Doctor Who.” ∟Peter Capaldi, 4th August 2013
