I enjoy playing Amanda's cattiness [in Melrose Place], probably because the truth is that I'm not like that at all in my own life. I'm more of a woman's woman, I guess. You know, as a rule I don't tend to back-stab my woman friends like Amanda might. [Rolling Stone, May 1994]
[About Dynasty's role] When I started being nasty, that's when I started getting letters... It really started with a scene where I was at a party in a white dress, tipsy, dancing, making a fool out of myself - that's when the letters really started coming. If someone's nice, you don't notice them. If they jump up on a table, you notice. [TV Guide, April 1983]
The older you get, the farther from the camera you need to be. [Esquire, Junuary 2003]
[About her cameo in The First Wives Club] I was really worried that all you wanted to talk to me about was The First Wives Club, because if you did, we'd have been here, like, five minutes... The first and only line I ever said on 'CHIPS' was 'Please make them stop!' and I think I have a little less than that in this movie. I mean, this interview is longer than my role in The First Wives Club... You've got to know, I've watched everything Goldie Hawn's ever done and I think she's soooo great... When she came up to me on the set, said hello and kissed me on the cheek, I swear to God, I was like, 'Can I have another one?' [Movieline, October 1996]
I like going to work when it's comedy because that means light and fun. But the drama is easier for me. Maybe something I guess about the writing part. The dramedy is kind of hard though - to know when you're serious and when you're not. How to play it. I mean always it's always serious. Then it comes off funny. That's a little bit harder.
Teri Hatcher is the most downloaded image on the Internet, not me. Look, it's even hard for me to go to auditions for roles where it's supposed to be a sexy girl in high heels and shorts. I usually go, 'Guys, I'll be sexy in a pair of tight pants and thick-heeled shoes so that I can stand up, walk and not be so nervous.' Auditions are always gross, weird and awkward-I'm usually just so grateful when those damn things are over. If I saw someone like Sharon Stone coming out from a reading as I was going in, it would psych me out so bad, I'd probably cry, have to head home and send a message: 'I can't make the audition.' [Movieline, October 1996]
Even today, I watch "Melrose Place' and I think: I suck. Half the time, I can't even see my performance because I'm busy looking at my roots or going, 'Shouldn't they use another couple of filters on me right about now?' [Movieline, October 1996]
[About success on Dynasty and T.J. Hooker] I see lots of actresses who've been working and waiting 10 years for a break and I wonder, Why am I so lucky? Why me? Why did I get the chance? I have no answers. [TV Guide, April 1983]
[About Melrose Place success] The younger population had no idea who I was. Now all of a sudden I get stopped by elementary-school, high-school kids all the time. I like being the older woman. I mean, someone like Andrew [Shue] must have been like 5 when I first started on TV. [Rolling Stone, May 1994]
[About Melrose Place] It was definitely the highlight of my career. [Entertainment Weekly's annual reunions issue, October 2012]
[When she joins "Franklin & Bash"] I loved "Boston Legal". I loved "Ally McBeal". It's similar to that. It's a fun show. And it was different than what I've done. Is it dramedy? More of a comedy.
Fans of mine, if they watched T.J. Hooker or Spin City, they're fans of Heather Locklear. If they call me Sammy Jo or Amanda, they're fans of the show. [Esquire, Junuary 2003]
[on why she wasn't invited for a T.J. Hooker (1982) reunion]: They haven't asked me. I don't think they've asked [former co-star] Adrian Zmed, but I'm sure William Shatner is willing to do it. I can't see why [he would] not... Maybe I'll see the film when it comes out on DVD or something.
