5 She was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 7021 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California on December 16, 1999.
6 Although she never worked with Alfred Hitchcock, she has worked with many other actresses who, like her, have family members who did. Her mother, Elizabeth Inglis appeared in The 39 Steps (1935), and her uncle, Doodles Weaver, appeared in The Birds (1963). Also appearing in that film were Veronica Cartwright, with whom Sigourney would later appear in Alien (1979), and Tippi Hedren, whose daughter Melanie Griffith appeared in Working Girl (1988). In You Again (2010), she appears with Jamie Lee Curtis, whose mother Janet Leigh appeared in Psycho (1960).

In addition, on an episode of Futurama (1999), and in the film WALL·E (2008), she had the chance to voice a spaceship.
24 Before working together on You Again (2010) she has co-starred with nine actors who have also co-starred with Jamie Lee Curtis: Ray Liotta, Dan Aykroyd, Kevin Kline, Tim Allen, J.E.

#Quote
1 I had such great teachers in high school who made me feel like I could do anything. Then to go to Yale, where these drama teachers made me feel like shit--if I had any advice for young people, it would be "Don't listen to teachers who say, 'You're really not good enough'." Just teach me. Don't tell me if you think I'm good enough or not. I didn't ask you. Teachers who do that should be fired.
2 I changed my name when I was twelve because I didn't like being called Sue or Susie. I felt I needed a longer name because I was so tall. So what happened? Now everyone calls me Sig or Siggy.
3 [on Political Animals (2012)] When I finally got to this material, to my great surprise, I felt I had been eating salad for a number of years and was finally offered a big, juicy hamburger. Because it's so different from what's going on in movies, which are dominated by effects and action and comic-book characters. To sink my teeth into these relationships has been just fantastic.
4 [on her television series Political Animals (2012)] I was offered this show just as I was realizing that TV was a cool place to work. A series can really take the time to build and layer and tell a different kind of story. It's delicious. It's like a stew instead of a little vegan meal.
5 [on her role as a student activist] Napalm was invented at Stanford University, so one of the reasons we were protesting was to make sure that didn't continue. I think we stopped the university and we helped stop that war.
6 [on The Year of Living Dangerously (1982)] It was a happy experience. Mel Gibson was quite happy for me to wear four-inch heels if I wanted and Peter Weir gave me a sense of film I hadn't had before.
7 [on hoping to do another Alien movie] I could definitely kick that alien's ass again. And while I can't speak for them, I think Fox, once you're 60, you're not going to be starring in an action movie. I think it's too bad that that's the case. I would have liked to do one last story where we go back to the planet, where Ripley's history is resolved. But I do feel like her story is unfinished.
8 [1992: on Alien³ (1992)] Fincher is very dry. He is the only director I can think of who can come up with so many jokes, considering the pressure he has been under.
9 [1992: working on Alien³ (1992)] Okay, the crew have not enjoyed being here until ten o'clock at night, but, you know, that's the way it is.
10 [1992: on the possibility of performing in a fourth Alien movie] I am sure there will eventually be an Alien 4, it just won't have me in it.
11 It took me a while to let my hair down in the business because I was kind of a shy person. I was from New York and never really felt at ease in Hollywood. I don't really now either but I don't care, it's not important that I do. Filmmakers find me or I find them.
12 I don't have ambitions, I believe in taking what comes. I have that philosophy about life in general. I go in and try to transform it into the best it can be.
13 I've lost a lot of roles because of my height. I'm 6 feet 3 inches in heels. Producers are short and I was never their sexual fantasy. As for actors, if I enter a room and an actor stands up then immediately gets self-conscious and sits back down, I hear myself saying, "This job isn't for me." I once offered to paint my shoes on my bare feet to get one part because it made me appear shorter.
14 Most people think somebody, somewhere is looking out for the deep oceans, but they aren't.
15 These deep sea trawlers are operating beyond the reach of the law. It's up to all of us to change that.
16 I think I get sent the roles Meryl's [Meryl Streep] not doing.
17 Usually, all Hollywood wants you to do is what you just did. After The Ice Storm (1997), I was offered a thousand "Ice Storms" and so on. You always get offered the same thing again and again, if you're not very careful. It's up to you to swing back and forth.
18 In Hollywood, if you are a man and speak your mind openly, you're considered a man in full. But, if you are a woman and do the same, you're nothing but an annoying bitch.
19 I've always regretted having such a serious career because I'm really more of an idiot.
20 I'd rather work with a first-time director who's passionate about the material. I've done enough movies with old and jaded people who are just like "Let's get this over with.".
21 Some of the most intense affairs are between actors and characters. There's a fire in the human heart and we jump into it with the same obsession as we have with our lovers.
22 I'm having a wonderful time producing. There are good producers and bad producers. I've learned the hard way what not to do. The ultimate aim is to produce things I'm not actually in. I'm not looking for vehicles for myself. It's not a vanity company.
23 Well, I've always admired Margaret Rutherford. Like her, I'd like to play Miss Marple when I'm eighty.
24 I'd rather have a small part in a movie I love than a bigger part in one I don't care about.
