August 13th is Left Handers Day. In honor of the ultra-rare female lefties, I compiled a list of 15 Women in Hollywood that you likely didn’t know were left-handed.
- Drew Barrymore
“There’s something liberating about not pretending. Dare to embarrass yourself. Risk.”
- Lisa Kudrow
“I’ve learned you can make a mistake and the whole world doesn’t end. I had to learn to allow myself to make a mistake without becoming defensive and unforgiving.” – Lisa Kudrow
- Goldie Hawn
“The only thing that will make you happy is being happy with who you are, and not who people think you are. “ – Goldie Hawn
- Whoopi Goldberg
“When you are kind to someone in trouble, you hope they’ll remember and be kind to someone else. And it’ll become like a wildfire.” – Whoopi Goldberg
- Mary Stuart Masterson
“What is more important is finding the soul of the character, and making sure it fits well into this story. And that it be dramatic and interesting and captivating, because these people weren’t entertainers, you know.” Mary Stuart Masterson
- Demi Moore
“Some of my lowest points were the most exciting opportunities to push through to be a better person.” – Demi Moore
7 & 8. Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen
“I wear weird things sometimes. I like to drink coffee. Neither of those things have anything to do with who I am.” -Mary-Kate Olsen
“I don’t think of myself as hot or cool or anything, just a dork.” – Ashley Olsen
- Julia Roberts
“True love doesn’t come to you it has to be inside you.” – Julia Roberts
- Marisa Tomei
“I’m not that big a fan of marriage as an institution and I don’t know why women need to have children to be seen as complete human beings.” – Marisa Tomei
- Kim Novak
“I loved acting, which was never about money, the fame. It was about a search for meaning. It was painful.” – Kim Novak
- Nicole Kidman
“When you relinquish the desire to control your future, you can have more happiness.” – Nicole Kidman
- Fran Drescher
“Once you wake up and smell the coffee, it’s hard to go back to sleep.” – Fran Drescher
- Ellen Barkin
“I’m not limited by my gender, and I don’t think anyone else should be either. Because I am the age I am and I sort of rode the crest of the first profound post-suffragette feminists, I wasn’t fighting to burn my bra. Those women fought that fight just seconds before I came into womanhood.” – Ellen Barkin
And last but not least, the reigning queen of getting people to cry on couches,
“Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another steppingstone to greatness.” – Oprah Winfrey
