Me – Stories of My Life by Katharine Hepburn
I have a friend who keeps asking me why I am writing this book. Especially as I have said a thousand times: â€œNo, that is personal. No, I wonâ€™t talk about that.â€ What made me change my mind? I wonder myself. Something changed me. I thinkâ€”and I am not saying I knowâ€”I think that Iâ€™ve always thought of myself as an actor. Now in the last few years Iâ€™ve seen that creature whom I created sitting around saying, â€œHey, what goes on, what are we going to do? Weâ€™re wasting time. Letâ€™s get going!â€
Shut up! Iâ€™m sick of you. Iâ€™m not going to hide behind you anymore. Who are you anyway? Youâ€™re not me. Youâ€™re â€œthat great big beautiful doll.â€ Youâ€™re the lucky side of the coin. You were born at the right time. You looked right. You sounded right. You were lucky. You caught on and got rich. Good. Iâ€™m glad that youâ€™ve had a good time. Now Iâ€™m going to take over.
What is that youâ€™re saying? Who am I?
Well, Iâ€™m meâ€”Iâ€™m what is called the power behind the throne. I am yourâ€”your character. Isnâ€™t that what they call it? Your â€œDo this. Donâ€™t do that.â€ Your fundamentals.
I run your ship. Youâ€™re the ship. Youâ€™re getting a bit long in the tooth and I may not be able to sell you as easily as I used to.
You have a right foot which doesnâ€™t work all that well. I mean it hurts. In 1982 you ran into that telephone pole. Stupid of you. Making a fancy comment about that shipyard just at the southeast edge of Saybrook Point. Listenâ€”so it hurts! But at least they didnâ€™t have to cut it off. Yes, of course it threw your whole body off balanceâ€”and now your back is painful too.
