Actors And Actresses Quotes By Ming-Na Wen

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Woody Allen

Actors And Actresses Quotes By J. Randy Taraborrelli

Today ... major actors and actresses develop their own projects or, at the very least, cherry-pick their roles carefully to suit not only their tastes but also whatever image they have cultivated to present to their public. Most major stars have their own production companies through which such projects are developed and even financed. While the biggest male stars of that time did in fact have their own production companies
Jimmy Stewart, Kirk Douglas, John Wayne, and Burt Lancaster, to name a few
and thus exerted creative and financial control over their careers, that was not the case with female stars. But Marilyn Monroe was about to change that. — J. Randy Taraborrelli

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Eknath Easwaran

Lovers of God possess intense concentration. In prayer their attention rivets itself so completely onto God that nothing can tear it away. Even a suggestion of the divine may draw them into a higher state of consciousness. Occasionally this can be somewhat inconvenient. Sri Ramakrishna once went to see a religious drama produced by his disciple. The curtain went up and a character started singing the praises of the Lord. Sri Ramakrishna immediately began to enter the supreme state of consciousness. The stage faded; the actors and actresses faded. As only a great mystic can, he uttered a protest: "I come here, Lord, to see a play staged by my disciple, and you send me into ecstasy. I won't let it happen!" And he started saying over and over, "Money... money...money," so as to keep some awareness of the temporal world. — Eknath Easwaran

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Julia Stiles

I think audiences, producers and directors included, develop crushes on actors (actresses in particular) and then lose interest and move on to the next one. — Julia Stiles

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Natasha Leggero

There are different types of art, and you just have to follow where things take you. It helps me with my desire to perform live. That's something that a lot of actors and actresses don't get to experience on a regular basis. — Natasha Leggero

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Cuba Gooding Jr.

I am admiring of my fellow peers, black filmmakers and black actors and actresses. — Cuba Gooding Jr.

I just have always been so interested in the way actors and actresses present themselves to the world because I think it is very important and it affects the way people see you as an actor. — Allison Williams

Actors And Actresses Quotes By James Caan

I've never been difficult to anybody or with anybody on a picture. Especially when you're in that nice status of hierarchy of actors and actresses who get to approve directors. Because once you make that choice, it's my belief that the director's boss. — James Caan

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Charles Barkley

I don't believe athletes should be role models ... We're a one-shot deal, one in a million, so we should be the least likely role models ... I think one of the problems in society today is that we don't stress education enough, because we glorify athletes, actors and actresses. — Charles Barkley

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Jasmine Guinness

Yes, I was on the cover of 'Vogue,' but girls on the cover of 'Vogue' are the most scared of rejection. Models are the most insecure of them all. Actually, actors and actresses are, and then musicians, and then models! — Jasmine Guinness

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Gloria Stuart

The great actresses and actors receive awards for great roles in great films. — Gloria Stuart

Actors And Actresses Quotes By George Bernard Shaw

The public want actresses, because they think all actresses bad. They don't want music or poetry because they know that both are good. So actors and actresses thrive and poets and composers starve. — George Bernard Shaw

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Craig Ferguson

I do a public access show with puppets. Puppets called actors, TV and movie stars. — Craig Ferguson

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Liam Neeson

As you know, Hollywood loves to pigeonhole all the actors and actresses, and suddenly I got 're-pigeonholed' as an action actor. — Liam Neeson

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Kirk Cameron

Culture changes because of musicians and actors and actresses. There's a responsibility there. You may ignore the responsibility. You may choose to be a bad role model. But, you are a role model nonetheless. — Kirk Cameron

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Lorenz Hart

I'm a great believer in conversational rhythm. I think in terms of rhythmic dialogue. It's so easy, you can talk naturally. It's like peas rolling off a knife. Take the great screen actors and actresses, Bette Davis, Eddie Robinson, Jimmy Cagney, Spencer Tracy. They all talk in rhythm. And rhythm and movement are the life of the screen. — Lorenz Hart

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Winona Ryder

I think that as actresses - and I've definitely gone through this in a really bizarre way, because I worked so much and was really lucky with the roles that I got when I was younger - I remember hearing the older actors saying, "It gets tough," and thinking, "Really? I can't imagine." — Winona Ryder

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Edith Head

I've dressed thousands of actors, actresses and animals, but whenever I am asked which star is my personal favorite, I answer, 'Grace Kelly.' She is a charming lady, a most gifted actress and, to me, a valued friend. — Edith Head

As a Japanese actor, I really want to work with a lot of actors and actresses in the world and many directors who have many different kinds of talents. I feel like nationally doesn't matter at all. — Ken Watanabe

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Dawn Olivieri

A lot of times you have very ego-driven actors and actresses that stay in their little world, and when you have a scene together, your worlds meet for a moment. But I don't think that makes for a very good cohesion. — Dawn Olivieri

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Robert Redford

I never had a problem with my face on screen. I thought it is what it is, and I was turned off by actors and actresses that tried to keep themselves young. — Robert Redford

Actors And Actresses Quotes By David Carradine

One thing I've noticed is that I can tell when a young actor or a young actress is going to become a huge star. Everybody else will say, "Oh come on, Michelle Pfeiffer, are you kidding?" and I'm pretty much always right about that. — David Carradine

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Frederick Lenz

There are so many talented people in film today. There seem to be poor scripts, but the actors and actresses are very talented. — Frederick Lenz

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Saoirse Ronan

I love a lot of comedy actors and actresses like Kristen Wiig and Tina Fey and all those women who are really brilliant and funny. — Saoirse Ronan

Actors And Actresses Quotes By David Sharp

When Shana Alexander interviewed me for Life magazine in 1952, she gave up after 4,000. At one time or another, I've worked for every studio in Hollywood, for almost every director with most of the actors and actresses. — David Sharp

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Lisa Scottoline

Celebrities are our heroes and heroines now, discussed the next day over latte or lunch. We have such a strong need to talk to each other, to have some commonality of story, that we're finding it in celebrities. In effect, we're turning reality into fiction. Using actors and actresses, just off duty. And how is this working for us? Not great. It leaves us with a perennially empty feeling. We find the celebrities empty, and at some level, we find ourselves empty for paying them so much attention. We've become reluctant voyeurs, and at some level, we know they're just people trying to live their lives. Our culture begins to lack content, depth, and substance. We miss the richness of human experience that story embodies, reflects, and carries forward. We might have to go back to reading books. Yay! — Lisa Scottoline

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Robert Wagner

That era provided a profusion of wonderful actors and actresses to admire - and not always the ones remembered by posterity. Take Joel McCrea, for instance, a real cowboy and a good actor who could excel in westerns like Union Pacific or The Virginian, but who was also wonderful in comedies like The Palm Beach Story for Preston Sturges - and comedy is the hardest thing an actor can do. — Robert Wagner

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Polly Bergen

I saw several actresses play the part. I did not in fact, as far as I know, do anything that any of the other actresses did. I don't think actresses do that. I think that what we do is we see a role as a role, we don't see it as a person. We look at the role and think, 'What can I, as an actor, bring to that part? — Polly Bergen

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Paula Fox

And what movies we saw! All the actors and actresses whose photographs I collected, with their look of eternity! Their radiance, their eyes, their faces, their voices, the suavity of their movements! Their clothes! Even in prison movies, the stars shone in their prison clothes as if tailors had accompanied them in their downfall. — Paula Fox

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Lenny Kravitz

When I'm in the studio, I write the music, I play the different instruments, I produce it, I arrange it, and it's a self-indulgent exercise. It's the way I make my music. And when I'm acting, I get to leave myself behind, which is a relief. I get to collaborate with a director; I respect the director's medium and all the actors and actresses. So at the end of the day, it's about a character and it's about a director's vision. It's a really good balance for being so intense and alone in my personal process of making music. — Lenny Kravitz

Actors And Actresses Quotes By P.V. Subramanyam

gymnasts retire at 20, cricketers at 34, actresses at 32, actors at 75, salesmen at 50, other employees at 58 or 60 years, and doctors and lawyers when their bodies do not listen to their minds. Of course, one class beats them all - politicians retire at 90! — P.V. Subramanyam

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Rosie Blythe

Actresses talking about characters they've played often use the phrase "strong woman", which kind of irks me. Firstly, the description appears to be reserved for two kinds of female: the gun-toting chick in tiny-vest-and-shorts combo, or the tough-talking businesswoman who secretly longs for a man to bring out her softer side. So obviously, our idea of strength is pretty narrow and one-dimensional. Secondly, why isn't Brad Pitt ever asked about how much he enjoys playing a "strong man"? Is it automatically assumed that men's roles will be complex and interesting? — Rosie Blythe

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Bernie Siegel

One of the best ways to change is to act as if you are the person you want to become. When you behave as if you are a different person, you change on a very basic level - even your physiology changes. When actors and actresses perform, their body chemistry is altered by the roles they play. — Bernie Siegel

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Eleanora Duse

To save the Theatre, the Theatre must be destroyed, and actors and actresses all die of the Plague ... they make art impossible. — Eleanora Duse

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Craig Brewer

There's something really special for a young person to sit in an audience and discover somebody, and it's rare to do because so much of a movie's economics are based on pre-existing actors or actresses. — Craig Brewer

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Anne Rampling

You know, one thing I learned about actors and actresses - I mean the big stars. They can be the most ignorant people if they get caught up in it very young. Some of them are damn near illiterate. And emotionally they're like people who have grown up in the penal system. I mean, they cannot control their emotions at all. — Anne Rampling

Actors And Actresses Quotes By India De Beaufort

You're a smaller fish in the U.S. There's just so many more TV shows, and actors, and actresses. Where as in the U.K. you're in a much smaller market there. — India De Beaufort

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Michael Sheen

When you're working on something where there's usually one sex scene in the film, it all gets a little bit of a gray area and people get a bit uncomfortable and awkward. You just get through it. But, it became very clear on this that that can't happen. There can't be any gray areas on this because there are actors and actresses coming in for a day or a couple of days, as well as people who are there regularly. — Michael Sheen

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Mark Waid

When most dullards hear the words 'the theater,' they envision a twelve-screen multiplex where disaster porn entertains the culturally witless for 90 minutes at a time. Pfaugh. The word 'theater' has grandeur. Power. Back to its ancient Grecian origins, it means 'the seeing place.' A stage upon which actors and actresses use fiction to show us truths. — Mark Waid

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Ryan Guzman

I really want to work with Tom Hardy. Christian Bale and Russell Crowe are also on my list. Those are my top three actors. As far as actresses go, Kate Beckinsale, because she's so smokin' hot. — Ryan Guzman

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Jared Gilman

I'm a huge movie buff, so I'm a fan of a lot of actors and actresses. — Jared Gilman

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Paul Walker

I'm as interested in photographing the film crew as much as the actors and actresses. — Paul Walker

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Anthony Michael Hall

I think it's even harder because I think as always, Hollywood is sort of glamour central for the world, and the entire world looks to it for not only entertainment, but the whole idea of the youth factor and youth being sold to our culture via young actors and actresses. — Anthony Michael Hall

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Laura Bush

I don't like that, because there are a lot of people whose works I admire as actors or actresses, or musicians. And you know, I've been a big fan of different musicians or actors. — Laura Bush

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Zoe Lister-Jones

Most actors and actresses are performative as people. — Zoe Lister-Jones

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Christine Lahti

Sure I faced the troubles and challenges that most actors and actresses face until they get noticed, but I was always confident of myself and my capabilities. — Christine Lahti

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Zach Galligan

I knew a ton of actors and was friends with them, but I never dated actresses. I tried to date 'normal' people because the Hollywood dating rule is 'one star per couple' because it's quite a challenge to match the egos of two actors. — Zach Galligan

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Paul Mooney

The political arena is the funniest.They [politicians] are always pretending to change, but they never change. They're the best actors and actresses in the world. They've always been hilarious since the beginning of time. — Paul Mooney

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Rebel Wilson

I think that actresses can be in all different shapes and sizes, but it is a profession, and as an actor, your body is one of your big tools. So you've got to be fit in a sense. — Rebel Wilson

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Chris O'Dowd

Going out with other actors is never good; actresses are neurotic, and actors are horrendous egotists. — Chris O'Dowd

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Michael Sheen

We knew, very early on, that we had to be very, very clear that directors need to speak to actors and actresses and be very clear about what is expected, and find out whether they're comfortable with that. Wardrobe has to be in place. There have to be checks. — Michael Sheen

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Maisie Williams

A lot of actors and actresses pull from past experiences. — Maisie Williams

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Johnny Galecki

We've all seen great actors and actresses who are missing a certain chemistry. And it's not about getting along or not getting along. — Johnny Galecki

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Jenna Dewan

Most actors and actresses are consumed by careers and getting ahead. — Jenna Dewan

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Kate Winslet

You see, I was never a big fan of contemporary movies because they always make actresses and actors look too perfect. — Kate Winslet

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Anupam Kher

I was failed in all other aspects of filmmaking and was completely bankrupt because my dreams were higher than realities. So I started my acting school in a small room with 12 students to prepare future actors and actresses. — Anupam Kher

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Cameron Bright

As most actors/actresses, I don't like to watch my own movies, either, and I never look at the dailys while filming. — Cameron Bright

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Randall Park

My hope is that shows like 'Fresh Off the Boat' open the door for even more of those kinds of characters for Asian actors and actresses. — Randall Park

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Denise Duhamel

In almost every book I've written, there is a reference to a movie - legendary films, actors and actresses, and forgotten made-for-TV movies. The leaps poems make are not unlike the cuts in a film. The miniature and avant-garde prose poets have perhaps the most obvious ties to film, as a prose poem in its shape is not unlike a movie screen. — Denise Duhamel

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Natalie Zea

What's great about New York is that there are a lot of theater actors and actresses, who are trained actors, that they bring onto the show. They're so talented, in such a weird, quirky and ominous way. And it's great to be able to work with new faces, too. — Natalie Zea

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Jennifer Lopez

What you realize is it's not about financial success as an artist. A lot of actors and actresses, producers, writers, and the creative people in the business realize that. It's not about that. Yeah, we all want to be successful, but we all just want to create and we want to tell the stories. We want to continue creating the opportunities to be able to continue doing what we love. So, at the end of the day, I feel like it's a win-win for everybody to be able to make these independent films. — Jennifer Lopez

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Kenneth Jay Lane

If they made films in Palm Beach, actors and actresses would be much better dressed. — Kenneth Jay Lane

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Liam Neeson

I think if you're the son or daughter of successful actors and actresses, it's a double pressure. More is expected of you. — Liam Neeson

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Hedda Hopper

Entertainment must be a satisfying emotional experience, a stirring of the heart. We need all kinds of young men and women. Those people with an artist's eye and an executive's brain that we term directors. Those wrestlers with their souls and typewriters known as authors. The beggars on horseback called actors and actresses. — Hedda Hopper

Actors And Actresses Quotes By John Rudy

The world is captivated by Hollywood superstars, music artists, and sports personalities. Hollywood is portrayed as the epitome of beauty and fashion capital of the world. Whatever the actors and actresses are wearing dictate the fashion trends and lifestyle being followed by fans in a global scale.
The said movie and music characters never fail to amuse and amaze us with their clothes, shoes, bags, and hairstyles. The most popular shoes are the high heel booties studded with gems, gold, and anything sparkling in-between.
You certainly wonder how they can perform dance and stage stunts with these booties heels. Women look so attractive donning high heel booties. They get few extra inches in height and look stunning from head to toe.
If you are going for mall shopping or walking long distances, stay away from heeled bootiesas your feet will surely get hurt. However, if you are attending special occasions and corporate functions, heel bootiesis the perfect footwear. — John Rudy

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Michael Chekhov

As actors and actresses, we must rejoice in the possession of our physical faculties. We must experience joy in the use of our hands, arms, body etc. Without this appreciation and realization of the body and its many possibilities, we cannot perform as artists
You should feel a flow of joy because you are alive. Your body will feel full of life. That is what you must give from the stage. Your life. No less. That is art: to give all you have. And what have you? Your life-nothing more. And to give life means to feel life throughout your whole being. — Michael Chekhov

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Kristen Stewart

I learn a lot with actors that I don't think are good. Every experience shapes you. I've had experiences with actresses - and I say actresses because there's just a woman thing - that have achieved what she's achieved, by means that I can't understand. — Kristen Stewart

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Gabriel Basso

You're in a scene with Laura Linney or Oliver Platt or John Hickey or Alan Alda and these amazing actors and actresses, and you're like, 'Oh my God, I haven't even started; I'm nothing compared to these people!' — Gabriel Basso

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Judi Dench

I just feel incredibly lucky to be employed when there are so many actors and actresses who are not employed. That's why, you know, I sometimes feel desperate, in case I'm not going to be cast again. — Judi Dench

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Summer Glau

I'm definitely one of those actresses who comes to a set knowing how I want to do a scene, and I definitely love input from my directors and my writers. I know that there's some actors who like to be left alone, they like to be very independent, but I actually really enjoy the teamwork. — Summer Glau

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Paulette Goddard

Actors and actresses who say they never go to see their own pictures are talking through their hats. You don't have to be a Freud to know that the most fascinating person in the world - actors or anybody - is yourself. — Paulette Goddard

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Woody Allen

I have a great admiration for English actors and actresses and have used them at every opportunity over the years, but now I won't have to import them to New York — Woody Allen

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Louise Slaughter

Challenge America grants go to the towns and hamlets of this sprawling country, where big touring companies will rarely go, and major actors, actresses, writers and artists may never appear in person. — Louise Slaughter

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Miranda Richardson

It's a wonderful profession, and it opens lots of doors, and I think it's quite right that people can accuse actors and actresses of being dilettante, but you learn on every job, whatever it is, the process moves you on in some way, and yeah, I want to expand my knowledge of our existence, I suppose. — Miranda Richardson

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Danny Glover

Hollywood is designed to check the box office on Monday morning and see: "How'd we do? How much?" It's another facet of this whole culture of accumulation and consumption. Black people are caught up in it, white people are caught up in it, white actors, black actors, female actresses - everybody's caught up in it. — Danny Glover

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Kate Winslet

I've never understood the notion that actors and actresses should look great on-screen just because they're on-screen. That doesn't make sense to me. — Kate Winslet

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Sara Paxton

I love watching amazing actors and actresses that you can't take your eyes off of because everything they are doing - even if it is just twiddling their thumbs or scratching their eye - it's just interesting. — Sara Paxton

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Joseph Jackson

Do you know how many plastic surgeries are done to the actors and actresses in Hollywood? — Joseph Jackson

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Avinash Advani

In the search for happiness, However, We r all equal; None of us is Happy - Not the Banker/Actors/Actresses/Politician/Housewife/Model/Doctor and so on. — Avinash Advani

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Shahid Kapoor

Someone who'll bring some normalcy into my life and help me stay in touch with reality. That is something I'm curious about. There are so many actors who are married to people from non-film backgrounds, and their marriages are successful. I'm tired of dating actresses. — Shahid Kapoor

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Alfre Woodard

I identify myself as an actor, because I feel like you don't go to the doctress, you go to the doctor; it doesn't matter what the gender is. I think actresses worry about eyelashes and cellulite, and women who are actors worry about the characters we are playing. A separate category is another way of making us a special-interest group. — Alfre Woodard

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Kaitlyn Dever

Mostly I've just worked with actors and actresses that are fun and easy to talk to and had nothing but great experiences. — Kaitlyn Dever

Actors And Actresses Quotes By James Gray

The sad truth for American actors is that they really have no control whatsoever over the material that they get, or can do, particularly actresses. And if you're over 40 and you're an actress, forget it. — James Gray

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Bob Hope

At the Academy Award Dinners all the actors and actresses in Hollywood gather around to see what someone else thinks about their acting besides their press agents. — Bob Hope

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Andy Weir

One big bonus: e-mail! Just like the days back on Hermes, I get data dumps. Of course, they relay e-mail from friends and family, but NASA also sends along choice messages from the public. I've gotten e-mail from rock stars, athletes, actors and actresses, and even the President. One of them was from my alma mater, the University of Chicago. They say once you grow crops somewhere, you have officially "colonized" it. So technically, I colonized Mars. In your face, Neil Armstrong! — Andy Weir

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Satyajit Ray

Most of the top actors and actresses may be working in ten or twelve films at the same time, so they will give one director two hours and maybe shoot in Bombay in the morning and Madras in the evening. It happens. — Satyajit Ray

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Russell Peters

I don't think Indian actors are good. A couple of them are, like Anupam Kher, but not many are there like him in the industry. There are thousand of actors and actresses in the industry, but you can count on hand how many of them are really good; the rest of them are just pretty faces. — Russell Peters

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Murray Stein

For everyone, though, the persona must relate to objects and protect the subject. This is its dual function. While introverts can be very outgoing with a few people, in a large group they shrink and disappear and the persona often feels inadequate, particularly with strangers and in situations in which the introvert does not occupy a defined role. Cocktail parties are a torture, but acting a role on stage may be a pure joy and pleasure. Many famous actors and actresses are quite deeply introverted. In private they may be shy, but given a public role they feel protected and secure and can easily pass as the most extroverted types imaginable. — Murray Stein

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Anne Rice

Actors and actresses make magic,' I said. 'They make things happen on the stage; they invent; they create. — Anne Rice

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Michelle Pfeiffer

There's always an imbalance with actors and actresses in the industry. And I think because there are just fewer movies overall being made, it's that trickle down effect. — Michelle Pfeiffer

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Chris Burke

I'd like to be the role model to teach other people who have Down's syndrome to be actors and actresses and to be themselves and not try to be a big shot. — Chris Burke

Actors And Actresses Quotes By George Bernard Shaw

I do not want actors and actresses to understand my plays. That is not necessary. If they will only pronounce the correct sounds I can guarantee the results. — George Bernard Shaw

Actors And Actresses Quotes By Kristen Stewart

I'm a fan of movies and television shows, and I don't expect anything from actors and actresses, or anyone, but good work. What they do. I don't feel like I deserve a piece of their personal life, or even what they think about the work they do. — Kristen Stewart
