Quotes of Gaby Hoffmann

1[re Los Angeles] I feel like everyone here is so creative. They think up a project, and the next thing you know, they're doing it.

I feel like these kids are under a crazy microscope; they're basically brands. And they eventually implode and act out. They need a break, and they're not getting one.
4I love Beyoncé Knowles, I do. But I was walking down the street and saw this huge billboard for the documentary, she made about herself called, Beyoncé: Life Is But a Dream (2013). Underneath the billboard is this homeless guy, then there's me with $2 in my bank account, and I'm thinking, Life is but a dream? I mean, I love you, B, but really?
5[re her childhood growing up in and around the Chelsea Hotel] We lived in a classless society. We'd spend a summer at Gore Vidal's house in Italy, but we were on and off welfare...
