Sally Field: I had just graduated.  It was that summer of 1964.  I had just graduated from high school and had no idea what I was going to do. And no, my parents didn’t say, “Sal, maybe you ought to be taking SATs and going to college”?  It was like what… I sometimes think if I hadn’t said, “Hmm,” that I would’ve just drifted off and they wouldn’t have basically noticed. “What happened to that girl that used to live here?”  I had never been out of the state. I had never been on an airplane.  I was so incredibly naïve and unsophisticated. I didn’t know that what I really wanted was to go to New York and study acting, didn’t know that it really existed.  I knew New York was there, but I didn’t know about the Actor’s Studio.  Even though my mother loved acting — that’s a whole ‘nother story.  She sort of so focused on being married to who she was married to.  She lost a lot of her own voice, I think, is the truth.
