We can learn a lot about a person if we know what types of things he or she talks about or comments on the most frequently. There are numerous topics with which Shonda Rhimes is associated, including America, check, and hiatus. Most recently, Shonda Rhimes has been quoted saying: “It is a bit embarrassing to me that media and the industry hasn't grown past itself. Interestingly enough, what I find most shocking is that financially it's just a giant mistake on the part of TV and movies and products to not portray, or reach out to a multitude of cultures, instead of just thinking of one kind of person and one kind of interest. When you're the only one of something, the tendency is that you have to represent everybody. So then you end being a stereotype or a totem, or perfect, it's definitely frustrating.” in the article Shonda Rhimes Thinks Hollywood Is Making A “Giant Mistake” By Failing to Embrace Diversity.

Shonda Rhimes quotes

Apr 21 2017

I love the idea that for $90, somebody who couldn't afford to go to film school would get to take this class. No matter where you are, what you were doing, where you were in life, you could stop for a little bit of time and take this class and get this education. It felt like an equalizer to me, and that was great. I would suggest getting a job as a PA (production assistant), anywhere, because it is a way in and lot of this is about knowing people.feedback

Apr 11 2017 - Abortion

Nothing felt more important than the sense of outsiderness. I didn't know that there hadn't been a drama series with a leading black woman for 37 years. When the show got picked up [to pilot], I got a phone call from somebody who said, This would be the perfect show for Connie Britton.' I said, It would be, except Olivia Pope is black.feedback

Apr 11 2017 - Abortion

She could talk Washington more than I could talk Washington. She was different than what I originally envisioned. We were all like, Oh my God,' because she's tiny, cute, pretty and younger – and because she was all those things, she was aware that people would underestimate her. There were 10 people on the call, and my actual words were, In episode six or seven, this woman is going to have sex with the president in the Oval Office on the desk. So if everyone can't get behind that, then we shouldn't make this show,' . They all gasped.feedback

Then our stories would be about what would happen if the wheels came off the bus and nobody was driving the bus. The problem now is the wheels have come off the bus, and nobody's driving. So in a world in which all of the things that we would write on Scandal are happening in real life, it's very hard to write Scandal the way we used to, when it was like, Let's make Washington the most outrageous, horrifying place it could ever be.feedback

I used to know how it ended, and then Donald Trump was elected. We had a destination, and I don't know if that's our destination anymore.feedback

Apr 06 2017

It's important to help fight back.feedback

Apr 06 2017 - Planned Parenthood

The fact that I've never had to use a Planned Parenthood, the fact that I've never been in need of medical services I couldn't afford or didn't have access to, doesn't mean I shouldn't be concerned about the fact that other women don't have that access.feedback

I don't know if it is age. I don't know if it is motherhood. I don't know what it is, but at some point I just looked up and thought, Oh I am not worried about any of that at all. Confidence carries you through. But I don't know if any woman's ever at the point where she is 100 percentaccepting it.feedback

Mar 31 2017

When I think about my storytelling, the shows are really about just portraying the lives of women as realistically as possible, as flawed as we are, as powerful as we can be, as ambitious and competitive [as we are], while also serving up a great story, obviously. I love the idea that their mission is about showing women as they really are, so the idea of serving as creative director for a campaign such as this felt really natural.feedback

Mar 31 2017 - Women

We're going to choose some stories and make the films from there. I think Viola [Davis]'s wig and the removing of her makeup was a really powerful moment of showing a woman how she truly is when she takes off all of the masks that she holds onto throughout her day to keep herself armored against the world. But I don't know if I would call it necessarily a pure 'beauty' moment. I think what makes each one of those women beautiful is being powerful, working at all cylinders, loving themselves, feeling really confident. Beauty is greater than your hair or your eyes. It's a bigger picture.feedback

Jan 10 2017

Over the years, these are the people I've become closest to in many ways. It was strange to have to find each other on hiatus, to kind of check with each other and process it.feedback

Nov 15 2016 - Human Rights

I believe (they) are patriots in the strongest sense of the word, for they are trying to form a more perfect union.feedback

Jul 28 2016

She's a mother who talks about her kid a little too much and like us, she personally worries too much. She's real and human and flawed, and funny, and dorky and interesting. She's a thousand times smarter than anyone you've met, but she's just like us.feedback
