"Perhaps I`ll get used to this bizarre place called Hollywood, but I doubt it."
"Most actors are basically neurotic people. Terribly, terribly unhappy. That`s one of the reasons they become actors. Nobody well adjusted would ever want to expose himself or herself to a large group of strangers. Think of it. Insanity! Generally, by their very nature - that is if they`re at all dedicated - actors do not make good parents. They are altogether egotistical and selfish. The better the actor - and I hate to say it, the bigger the star - why, the more that seems to be true. Honestly, I don`t think I`ve ever known one - not one! - star who was successfully able to combine a career and family life."
As written in a 1940s Architectural Digest piece about her Brentwood, California home, Sullavan shared that she chose the Connecticut-style colonial home due to her love of the New England state. After years of searching for the quintessential property, she and her then-husband Leland Hayward purchased a rambling saltbox house on 100 bucolic acres in Brookfield, Connecticut.
As a child, family friend Peter Fonda had a crush on Sullavan`s daughter Bridget. In adulthood, after Bridget committed suicide, he named his own daughter (Bridget Fonda) after her.
