Golshifteh Farahani’s 5 most popular quotes

  • Exile is like death. You cannot understand it until it happens to you.
  • For me, Iran was paradise, and I believe it’s a paradise still, but only if you don’t have political problems. If you have a political problem, paradise turns into hell.
  • I had to tell people I was not born with a scarf because I came out Iran. People think you came out of your mother with a scarf; they can’t imagine that the scarf is not stuck to your head.
  • I have scars from every film I have made. There is nothing to protect actors. They treat you worse than a dog. You work like a slave, and you know, I like it. That is the way it should be. Every film should be like your last.
  • Independent cinema is more thoughtful, delicate. While Western blockbusters can have their own kind of delicateness, it’s not delicate enough. You have to be ready to compromise to enter that field. I will do so only if it’s worth it.
