Hayley Mills Quotes:

Mary Clancy: I'm not a child. I'm a midget with bad habits.

Margaret Carey: It's Julia. She's coming to live with us.
Gilly Carey: Oh, no!
Nancy Carey: Oh, please! Not Julia!
Margaret Carey: I want you two out of those dying gladiator attitudes! Julia is your cousin and a Carey and I don't want you to forget that, ever. Try to remember that Julia's story is rather a sad one. She never even knew her mother! And after her dear father died, the Fergusons very kindly took her in and raised her.
Nancy Carey: Kindly took her in? George Ferguson had a guilty conscience. He knew those stocks he sold Julia's father were as worthless as ours.

Julia Carey: Oh, Nancy, it's all been my fault. I'll do my share of the chores from now on, and I'll never mention the Fergusons again. Oh, and my dresses weren't even imported, I made them myself!
Nancy Carey: You did? Oh, Julia, if I do all the dishes, will you help me with my dress for the housewarming? When it comes to sewing, I'm all thumbs!

Hayley Mills Facts
Of the Oscar-winning father-daughter couples, she and her father are one of two couples (the other is Jane Fonda/Henry Fonda) where the daughter won an Academy award before the father did.

Her second son, Jason, was born of her relationship with actor Leigh Lawson

In the movie That Darn Cat! (1965), her habit of biting her nails precluded her from using her own hands in close-ups. A studio worker, Tricia Blain, who just happened to be hanging around the set watching the filming was selected to serve as a double in those shots that required close-ups of the actress' hands.
