Quotes

“I’m young but I’m not stupid.”

“I’m not a stand up at all, it’s such a fear of mine. My sister does it, and she’s really great at it.”

“I want to make people laugh.”

“I never really wanted to write and wanted to focus on acting.”

“My dad was so much fun growing up.”

“I think you have to create your own stuff so I’m working on stuff for myself right now.”

“There are some different things I’m writing and developing, but I don’t know where they’ll go. They’re fun stuff that I would be in and are written in my voice, for me.”

“[Bill proposed to me] in our apartment and it was beautiful. There were flowers everywhere. It was really beautiful and he was traditional and got down on one knee. It was just very simple but lovely and wonderful.”

“[IVF] is an emotionally difficult process but in my case talking about it and hearing other people’s stories has made me feel less alone. To anyone going through infertility, you are so strong.”

“There are some different things I’m writing and developing, but I don’t know where they’ll go. They’re fun stuff that I would be in and are written in my voice, for me.”

“I never really wanted to write and wanted to focus on acting. My goal was never to be a sketch comedian, but these past four years I have figured out that I love to write, and can write, and I feel like it’s now a part of what I want to do.”

“I didn’t have 10 years of experience under my belt when I went on ‘Saturday Night Live.’ There were a lot of more seasoned actors I think that we’re kind of like ‘who do you think you are? I tried not to pay attention to it, but it was difficult because you’re always seeking approval from your peers. I ran into that ageism.”

“SNL was still a boys club when I was there. At least it felt like it. I feel it in a lot of comedy experiences that I do, but you just kind of have to own it and and allow yourself to thrive and still be successful and not pay any attention to it. You have to figure out your voice, and make your stamp.”

“I feel like you have to say no to things to get the things you do want. I would say, ‘Oh, I like this [role], but it requires nudity that I’m uncomfortable with,’ or ‘this is too broad for me right now.’ You have to really be selective. I’ll get things where I think they’re looking for someone younger or older. Is this worth my time?’”

“I don’t like confrontation. I just want to hide in a corner when people start something. I would say I try to defend myself, but sometimes I just let it go. Sometimes it’s not worth it with those types.”

“As you get older, and you’re in your late 20s early 30s, you start to question the path that you’re on because things start to move a little quicker than previously, for me at least. I got married and now I have a house and a dog and that seemed to all happen within the course of a couple of years. All of the sudden I have all these responsibilities and it’s stressful and can be overwhelming.”

“My dad has told me you don’t have to do this. If you’re not having fun, it’s not worth it. That’s advice I would pass on. If you’re not having fun, if you’re working with terrible people get out of there. Don’t waste your time. Life’s too short.” 

Abby Elliott is determined to follow her father and grandfather’s footpaths. Even then she has managed to make a name of her own as a professional actress and comedian.
