Actors often behave like children, and so we're taken for children. I want to be grown up.
God is the poet, men are only the actors.
I made mistakes in drama. I thought drama was when actors cried. But drama is when the audience cries.
Actors are one family over the entire world.
Actors should be overheard, not listened to, and the audience is 50 percent of the performance.
When [actors] are talking, they are servants of the dramatist. It is what they can show the audience when they are not talking that reveals the fine actor.
You need three things in the theater - the play, the actors and the audience, - and each must give something
Compare the cinema with theatre. Both are dramatic arts. Theatre brings actors before a public and every night during the season they re-enact the same drama. Deep in the nature of theatre is a sense of ritual. The cinema, by contrast, transports its audience individually, singly, out of the theatre towards the unknown.
Hollywood is where they shoot too many pictures and not enough actors.
You can think of Hollywood as high school. TV actors are freshmen, comedy actors are maybe juniors, and dramatic actors - they're the cool seniors.
I was very introverted. I had glasses and was kind of weird. A lot of actors are pretty weird people.
Actors die so loud.
The great actors are the luminous ones. They are the great conductors of the stage.
Plastic surgery and breast implants are fine for people who want that, if it makes them feel better about who they are. But, it makes these people, actors especially, fantasy figures for a fantasy world. Acting is about being real being honest.
To save the theatre, the theatre must be destroyed, the actors and actresses must all die of the plague. They poison the air, they make art impossible. It is not drama that they play, but pieces for the theatre. We should return to the Greeks, play in the open air; the drama dies of stalls and boxes and evening dress, and people who come to digest their dinner.
You need three things in the theater - the play, the actors and the audience, - and each must give something.
I know as actors our job is usually to shed our skins, but I think as people our job is to become who we really are and so I would like to salute the men and women who brave ostracism, alienation and a life lived on the margins to become who they really are.
Generally speaking, actors are allowed NO input. Actors are dumb.
There's nothing more boring than actors talking about acting.
Actors are loved because they are unoriginal. Actors stick to their script. The unoriginal man is loved by the mediocrity because this kind of ''artistic'' expression is something to which the merest five-eighth can climb.
Actors ought to be larger than life. You come across quite enough ordinary, nondescript people in daily life and I don't see why you should be subjected to them on the stage too.
Actors search for rejection. If they don't get it they reject themselves.
We become actors without realizing it, and actors without wanting to.
After filming I like to go home and lie down with my daughter and have a glass of wine so I do not really socialize with the other actors.
Actors worry about bad breath, weight, receding hairlines and why their leading lady looks like their daughter.
