“An actress can only play a woman. I’m an actor, I can play anything.”

“I am an artist, art has no color and no sex.”

“I’m fighting the label of black actress simply because it’s very limiting in people’s eyes, especially people who are making movies.”

“I don’t look like Halle Berry. But chances are she’s going to end up looking like me." 

- Whoopi Goldberg
