Christie Brinkley Quotes
- If a person lies to you about whats in their bank account, theyll lie to you about other things as well.
- I have this helicopter crash, and I fall in love with this man who was in the crash with me. I must have been suffering from post-traumatic stress syndrome.
- The mere act of putting your lips in the right position tells your body to release chemicals that make you feel better. Share your smile with the world. Its a symbol of friendship and peace.
- Some people think happiness is a luxury, but its a necessity. You need to make space for it in your life.
- [Her memory of the pool scene in National Lampoons Vacation (1983) ] Well, I remember that night that we were shooting the scene, it was about 3 A.M. in the morning and we got out to the pool and suddenly somebody decided that they really wanted me to strip and then jump in the pool. And so there was a little debate there and I couldnt reach an agent or anything at 3 in the morning. But I just kept saying "I dont think so". So we compromised with, and I think it was so much more effective, when I just tossed my bra and it hit Chevy in the face.
- [on recreating the National Lampoons Vacation (1983) s pool scene for a Direct TV commercial] It was, like 1 A.M. in the morning... and the swimming pool was steaming and they couldnt have the steam, so they had to make the water as cold as the temperature outside, so they had huge blocks of ice going in and they had drained everything and put in the coldest water. Im down to the pool in nothing but a G-string... my lips would freeze, so they would have to get me out the pool to pit me in a bathtub to thaw me out. I had to, like, go up the pool ladder with nothing much on.
