Actors Quotes

Actors worry about bad breath, weight, receding hairlines and why their leading lady looks like their daughter.

Matthew Ashford

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.

Izabella Scorupco

We become actors without realizing it, and actors without wanting to.

Henri Frederic Amiel

Actors search for rejection. If they don't get it they reject themselves.

Chevy Chase

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.

Donald Sinden

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.

Patrick Kavanagh

There's nothing more boring than actors talking about acting.

James Caan

I find that it is very useful to look over the location and to feel out the atmosphere while waiting for the actors. It may happen that the images before my eyes coincide with those I had in my mind, but this is not frequently the case. It more often happens that there is something insincere or artificial about the image one has thought of. Here again is another way of improvising.

Michelangelo Antonioni

Actors always have to fight for the good parts. There are so few good roles written for women each year, and when one is written like this every actress in town covets the role.

Halle Maria Berry

It's important for me to find different things and prove I can do them. ... Someone told me that inside all actors are many sleeping princesses, and each time we do a role, one of those princesses wakes up. Inside us there is everything. We just have to look for it.

Monica Bellucci

I've never liked Welles as an actor, because he's not really an actor. In Hollywood you have two categories, you talk about actors and personalities. Welles was an enormous personality, but when he plays Othello, everything goes down the drain, you see, that's when he's croaks. In my eyes he's an infinitely overrated filmmaker.

Ingmar Bergman

I was very cruel to actors and to other people. I think I was a very, very unpleasant young man. If I met the young Ingmar today, I think I would say, "You are very talented and I will see if I can help you, but I don't think I want anything else to do with you." I don't say I'm pleasant now, but I think I changed slowly in my 50's. At least I hope I've changed.

Ingmar Bergman

It was only when I realized how actors have the power to move people that I decided to pursue acting as a career.

Catherine lise Blanchett

Some political scientists, for example, say that the Economic Man may be very nice for playing games with but that he is an abstraction who does not exist, while Hitler and Stalin are real and not to be played with. Economic analysis, they say, not only does not help us to understand such political actors but makes it more difficult to bring them within the purview of social science by systematically excluding or deforming their specific motives. Economists, seeking mathematical convenience, turn us away from the consideration of the most important social phenomena.

Allan David Bloom

Ultimately, the Indian public is not fool. They can spot the difference between what is said for effect and what is done in reality. Whether it is politicians or actors or social activists, they know for sure whom to trust or not.

Rahul Bose

There was a great director who directed a picture that I wrote who barred me from the setquite appropriatelyand said, Im sorry, Jim. When youre directing, you dont need to know everything. You need the illusion that you do. And, you know, and I WOULD be therebehind him trying to signal the actors in, you know, in a way I wasnt even aware of.

James L. Brooks

The growing drama has outgrown such toys Of simulated stature, face, and speech: It also peradventure may outgrow The simulation of the painted scene, Boards, actors, prompters, gaslight, and costume, And take for a worthier stage the soul itself, Its shifting fancies and celestial lights, With all its grand orchestral silences To keep the pauses of its rhythmic sounds.
