On Acting: “For me, there are no challenges as far as acting is concerned. I just get up in the morning and do.it. I never wake up and say, ‘Oh my God, this is so hard!’ Oh no no no, that’s not me. At this point in my life, I feel I can do ANYTHING.” (1991, Los Angeles Times) – Bette Midler

Midler on Radio’s Limited Sound

Midler on Radio’s Limited Sound: “But I have to say I’m not all that crazy about what’s going on in the pop world today. I do try, and I’m very grateful for the ballads. People love to hear me sing them and I love to do them. But the radio only plays a certain sound and that’s too bad because my interest in music is so wide-ranging.” (1991, Chicago Sun Times) – Bette Midler

Midler on playing characters:

Midler on playing characters: “Those kinds of characters that are larger than life — driven, overbearing — those kinds of characters don’t come along very often. Even in the theater. And since good parts are at a premium, I’m no fool — I want to play as many of them as I possibly can. Every actress who calls herself an actress wants in her heart to play Lady Macbeth. And every musical-comedy person wants to play Mama Rose.” (1993, Hartford Courant) – Bette Midler

On Retiring: I might stop at some point.

On Retiring: ?I might stop at some point. I m coming to the end of the line. I have to admit it. When you have more of the road behind you than ahead, it becomes a very focusing thing. You start thinking about the world. I ve never been to Africa or South America. I ve never seen a rhinoceros. I m not saying that entertainment is a childish thing but, in time, you do grow up. I ve achieved my childhood dream. Now the dream is just about over. I m still alive, still vibrant. I d like to see what other dreams I can come up with. (2014) – Bette Midler Read More

Bette Midler On Discovering Acting

Bette Midler On Discovering Acting: In Her Sophmore Year In High School: “I discovered I could act for a lot of people, not just 30 people, which I used to do when I was a little girl in fifth grade and did improvised shows with my girlfriend. It gave me a lot of confidence, finding out that I could make people laugh and entertain them.” (The Milwaukee Journa Dec 2, 1979)
