Memorable Monologue: Frida

"There was this skinny kid with these eyebrows shouting up at me, 'Diego, I want to show you my paintings!' But, of course, she made me come down to her, and I did, and I've never stopped looking. But I want to speak about Frida not as her husband, but as an artist. I admire her. Her work is acid and tender, hard as steel, and fine as a butterfly's wing. Loveable as a smile, cruel as, the bitterness of life. I don't believe that ever before has a women put such agonized poetry on canvas."

~ Alfred Molina as Diego Rivera in Frida (2002)
