This week Debbie Reynolds sadly passed away at the age of 84 – just one day after her daughter, Carrie Fisher, died.

Reynolds was a much-loved actress, singer and humanitarian.

Here are some of her best quotes:

1. On seduction

Women were far more seductive back then – and far less obvious than they are now. A woman should be like a treasure chest. First you should have to find it, then locate the key, and if not, have a key made to fit. It shouldn’t be easy.

The Telegraph, 2014

2. On body image

Really thin is not attractive. I was always little but my mother was not a skinny lady. She had big boobs and a divine, voluptuous figure. I think everyone should get over the whole thin thing.

The Telegraph, 2014

3. On her daughter

Carrie is my child, and I love her with every ounce of strength I possess. If love alone could cure our children, they would always be well. Since I can’t, I will do whatever I can to make her life less difficult.

4. On Frank Sinatra

He was so much fun - and a great kisser.  I found that out in The Tender Trap.

5. On work

Singin’ in the Rain and childbirth were the two hardest things I ever had to do in my life.

6. On mornings

I'm not a morning person. I'm barely an afternoon person.

7. On happily ever after

I only had radio growing up, so I loved going to the movies. I always had a thing for a fairy-tale ending.

8. On her Life Achievement award

Every moment adds up to a life, and that’s why I am here with you for an achievement award that they say I’ve earned. The golden era of Hollywood. Fortunately, that’s really my life. My life is golden.

9. On Las Vegas

I like Vegas because it’s fun, free and people have a good time  there.
