Christina Applegate

Christina Applegate quotes: Kelly Bundy breaks it down.

“Thought is creative.  Be mindful of where your attention is, because the universe doesn’t know the difference.  It only knows where your focus is.  Life will surely manifest where you put that attention.”

“If something doesn’t sit right with you, you got to say no.”

“There is something about laughter that can take away all the darkness.  Comedy can be very freeing.  Laughter truly is the best medicine.”

“Everyone in my life thinks I’m competitive because I want to win, but it comes from me wanting everyone to have a good time.  And when I see that people aren’t enthused, I try to make it really uncomfortable for everyone so they get enthused and want to play hard.”

“I guess I’ve kind of had an attitude my whole life.”

“I started doing radio commercials for Kmart when I was four.  They had to splice all my consonants together because I couldn’t talk very well.  But these jobs helped my mother and me put food on the table.  It took the two of us working.”

“It was not easy for my mother, being a struggling actress and raising a child.  We were these two sort of vagabonds, never knowing where the money was going to come from.  She always says she couldn’t afford a babysitter, which is why she put me on the stage.”

“There are a lot of sacrifices a mother makes when she’s raising a child by herself.  I saw it when I was growing up, watching all my mother did for me.  But it wasn’t until recently that I fully understood the price she paid because of how we had to struggle.”

“I wasn’t one to go out and buy a new car and stereo system and expensive clothes.  My mom helped keep me grounded.”

“I’ve been working since I was 13, completely straight, without a break.”

“I can never say never to anything but for now things are on that film path and I’m just sort of riding it right now.  It’s really a different creative process.  It’s just really different and I’m really enjoying this right now.  Much slower, much longer hours but the creative element is very invigorating.”

“I’m a grown-up now, and I value the training I had.”

“I wish I had a better knowledge of history and the other things I could’ve learned.  Of course, nothing is stopping me from learning now.  In fact, I’m probably better prepared.”

“My dream is to have a house on the beach, even just a little shack somewhere so I can wake up, have coffee, look at dolphins, be quiet and breathe the air.”

“I used to be a stressed-out person.  I’m not anymore.  I try to find the lining in everything in life.”

“I used to say, ‘Don’t sweat the small stuff – not even the big stuff.’  At the end of the day, none of it matters but your own joy, your own spiritual journey that you go on, God, your loved ones, your friends, your animals.  These are the things you’ve got to cherish and love and embrace.”

“When I first came out about my breast cancer, I didn’t want to talk about it, but I had to, because young women were getting it, and people weren’t understanding that.  I am a 36-year-old person with breast cancer, and not many people know that that happens to women my age or women in their 20s.  This is my opportunity now to go out and fight as hard as I can for early detection.”

“I went through so much that year that it would be hard not to come out of an experience like that a different person – with a warrior spirit.  Because I had to have that to make it through the tribulations and trials that I went through.  I think I came back to L.A. a bit stronger than I was before.  I know how to say no now, which is something I don’t think I really knew how to do before.  I came back a much more direct human being.”

“I think having a dialogue about it sort of takes the onus off of it, and that’s why I’ve been vocal about my own health issues.  If I can inspire one person to take care of themselves, then I’ve done my job for the day.”

“I think it was the fight I had to go through.  I fought harder than I’ve ever had to fight for anything in my life, and pushed through a great deal of physical and emotional pain.”

“I think I was a lot more afraid of everything back then.  I was more afraid of the outcome of my life as an actor, afraid of my own talents, and not as sure of myself.  Now, I feel much more sure of all of those things.  And I also have an outlook that it’s okay.  That things – if there is, you know, a ‘failure,’ it never really is a failure in the end.”

“I’ve never been one to pull the covers over my head.  I have to push through things.”

“I’m a human being, and I make mistakes.  I fall back on things… it’s always a struggle.”

“I am an inspiration.”

“God is everywhere, all the time.  Through prayer, meditation, affirmation, you kind of create your own existence and your own experience.”

“Take no moment for granted.”

“If you’re too in your head and you’re not in the moment, life passes you by.”

“[On being in a place where opportunities just come] I don’t know if I’ll ever be at that place, because I’m a risk-taker, so in order for me to get the things I want to get, I’m probably always going to have to work for them.  There’s always some new crop of girls who skyrocket to fame, and then there are the people who work hard.  I’m one of those – the middle-class hard worker.  I’m used to having to work hard to get something.”

“I’m probably a lot happier than a 15-year-old.  As we get older, we become comfortable in our own skin.  And start to make good choices, and have a sense of humor about life.  But I’m very reflective.  I’ve always been that way.”

“[Working title of her autobiography] I Swear, This Sh*t Really Happened.”
