As January comes to a close, and a new year of doll discoveries awaits us, let's take a gander at what some well-known people have said about doll creations. With the Oscar nominations hitting this week, and presidential news conferences taking center-stage, it's fun to see which stars have chatted about being collectible, in both a dignified and charming manner, and in a bold and boisterous way.
"I used to do my own makeup. I used to have this doll that had those big eyelashes on the top and bottom, and I think I copied her when I was doing my eyes, putting false eyelashes on the bottom as well as the top. If there hadn't been a doll, there wouldn't be me."
"I'm definitely a lash girl. I feel they are my best feature. I was drawn to Lancome Doll Lashes recently. Not only because of the name, but it smells like roses! Who wouldn't want to be a walking, talking, living 'flower doll.'"
"It's every little girl's dream to have an exact look-alike doll. It's amazing."
"When I was growing up, Brandy was a TV star, reality star, a pop star, a Cover Girl, Grammy winner, had her own Brandy doll, and was the first African American to play Disney princess Cinderella."
"I used to put all my doll babies on my bed with their hands up and I would do full shows for them. I'd even do the screaming and clapping. I was bugging to be a singer."
"I remember when I was six years old, we were having an event at school where different dolls were on display. I said that the tallest doll needed to be on the end, and my little friend said to me, 'Oh, you're just so bossy.' I remember thinking that wasn't a good thing. But I kept insisting that the doll had to be on the end, anyway."
"Nothing scares me more than people with some doll collection."
"It's odd to think that people are handling a doll likeness of me. I don't want to imagine what they are doing with it or feeling about it. It can make me uncomfortable."
"The film that scarred me for life was 'Poltergeist.' It has one of the creepiest doll sequences with the clown, and ever since then, I've just been fascinated by dolls."
"If my kids were to make a doll of me as a mother, one of my recorded phrases would be 'I will throw that in the trash.' 'If you don't put that down right now, I will throw that in the trash.' It would be very funny, and scary, to hear myself saying certain things."
"Even while starting out I took things very seriously. I wasn't the sort of kid that would do a doll commercial or do a series for Nickelodeon. They asked me to do silly things, and I wasn't a silly kid."
"It's embarrassing to tell you how much my friends do make fun of me. Seriously, when you have a doll made of your face, it is ridiculous how creative your friends can get . . . pictures, videos, little animated cartoons that they've made."
"I think, for a long time, people just didn't know what to do with me. I looked like a Barbie doll, and then I had this voice like I spend my life in a bar, and I said things that were alarming and had ideas that didn't make sense."
"In 'Summer and Smoke,' I was supposed to be a plain-Jane wallflower, and, instead, I had all these spectacular costumes. I looked like a Barbie doll."
"I am not interested in being a Barbie doll and turning myself into a sausage for the next 20 years. I want to follow actresses like Helen Mirren and Judi Dench who have lines on their faces and aren't afraid of playing their age."
"Barbie — you and I are the same age, but I think you are aging much better than I am. Plus, you've had a hell of a lot more career opportunities. Way to go!"
