#Quote
1 [in defense of her daughter Gwyneth Paltrow] I feel she's just extraordinarily accomplished in every area, and people don't like that - people who are bored and sit on their asses all day and just tap away. I mean, I don't read any of it. I just find it disgusting. There is a coarsening of our culture today that is just so tragic.
2 [on granddaughter Apple's name]: Creative people choose creative names and unusual names. I think it's a great name.
3 [on the birth of Moses, her second grandchild] We love unusual names in the family.

#Trademark
1 Frequently works with Woody Allen
2 Often plays rich, sophisticated women, usually socialite or intellectual types
