Dax Shepard Quotes 810565

They're making so few movies that you really just have to make it. It's going to be the only way you end up getting work.

They're going to have to show somebody something at some point. — Dax Shepard

I'm an off-road racecar driver. And I think every woman in my life has told me that's not a sensible hobby.

I worked for a race team when I was 15 and I traveled with them. — Dax Shepard

What's great about TV, and what I love about being on 'Parenthood,' is you have this family.

So that part is amazing. — Dax Shepard

Because 98 percent of our ideas are not great ideas, or everyone would be a billionaire. So yeah. That's something people have had a lot of experience in: being told our idea is bad or our performance is bad. I think that's the one common thread between all working actors is that they have a pretty thick skin - or you'd like to hope. You're used to rejection, that's for sure. — Dax Shepard

Dax Shepard Quotes 618733

I think I'm a combination of very simple pleasures and the fact I've read a lot of books. I don't think it's a binary opposition across the board in humans and I think I'm an example that it's not.

You know what? I did a lot of things that were deliberate, and they all backfired. I was trying desperately to become Will Ferrell or Adam Sandler, and it did not work for me.

Dax Shepard Quotes 1381026

You can't put the Hollywood sign in a movie without paying them. That is a landmark in L.A. I'm sorry, remove it from our skyline, then. You know? How dare they. That should be public domain, right?

But doing 'Parenthood,' I've never ever been happier in 35 years. I drive to work and I drive home. I'm like a factory worker and that is in my DNA. I love having a steady job with the same people.
