Katharine Hepburn: Will, Study, Imitation, Desire

Interview with Katharine Hepburn
Conducted by James Grissom
New York City

People get better because they want to get better, and need to get better--they feel the obligation to get better. And you take: You take from anyone and from anywhere. Turn nothing down, unless an idiot is babbling at you. I took advice from everyone, and what you see before you is the result of will and study and imitation and desire. I was born only with the desire, but showing up and driving everyone stark raving mad with questions made me good. And I am good. I worked at it.
