Journalist: “can anyone live with Eartha Kitt?”
Eartha Kitt: “That’s not for me to decide. That for someone who decides to live with me to decide. Not for me.”
Journalist: “But are you willing to compromise? Within a relationship?”
Eartha Kitt: “To compromise? What is compromising? Compromising for what? Compromising for what reason? To compromise? For what? To compromise. What is compromise.”
Journalist: “If a man came into your life… wouldn’t you want to compromise?”
Eartha Kitt: *laughs loudly* “stupid…” *laughs more* “A man comes into my life and I have to compromise? …You must think about that one again.” *laughs again* “A man comes into my life and you have to compromise, for what? For what? For what? A relationship is a relationship that has to be earned! Not to compromise for. And that love relationships, I think they’re fantastic, they’re wonderful, I think they’re great, nothing in the world more beautiful than falling in love. But falling in love for the right reasons, falling in love… for the right purpose. Falling in love. Falling in love. When you fall in love… what is there to compromise about?”
Journalist: “Isn’t love… a union between two people? Or does Eartha fall in love with herself?”
Eartha Kitt: “I think, if you were to think about it in terms of analysing… yes. I fall in love with myself. And I want someone to share it with me. I want someone to share me with me. ”
Journalist: “Has that happened?”
Eartha Kitt: *shouts and waves goodbye to someone off screen* “Many, many times, in many ways.”
