Ayoade Quotes By Richard Ayoade

Ayoade Quotes By Richard Ayoade

Louis Malle is maybe one of my favorite directors, but I love Tarantino. — Richard Ayoade

Ayoade Quotes By Richard Ayoade

When I do plays in New York and do eight shows a week, you have the same feeling. Three of them are terrible, four of them are okay and one is really good. It's hard to say what accounts for the really good one or for the terrible ones, but you end up trying to remanufacture whatever worked for the good one, like eating a tomato. I ate a tomato and the show was good, but that of course is not how it works. — Richard Ayoade

Ayoade Quotes By Richard Ayoade

I only ever privately tell people stuff for the scene. And I often ask what they feel is right. Normally, by the time that we're filming, if it doesn't work, it always the script. — Richard Ayoade

Ayoade Quotes By Richard Ayoade

I don't know how to be myself. It's like I'm permanently outside myself. Like, like you could push your hands straight through me if you wanted to. And I can see the type of man I want to be versus the type of man I actually am and I know that I'm doing it but I'm incapable of what needs to be done. I'm like Pinocchio, a wooden boy. Not a real boy. And it kills me. — Richard Ayoade

Ayoade Quotes By Richard Ayoade

I've only ever really been in shows of friends, so I don't know exactly what happened. I think I'm incredibly cheap to hire. That can buy some traction. I'm as cheap as it's possible for an actor to be legally. — Richard Ayoade

Ayoade Quotes By Craig Roberts

I would probably go so far as to say that I couldn't act before I met Richard Ayoade. — Craig Roberts

Ayoade Quotes By Yasmin Paige

The most interesting part of filming is what the actors do. That's the primary link between the story and the audience. — Richard Ayoade

Ayoade Quotes By Richard Ayoade

Ayoade Quotes By Yasmin Paige

To work with Richard [Ayoade] is my favourite thing in the world. He is my favourite person.

Ayoade Quotes By Richard Ayoade

I like Roy Orbison's video for 'I Drove All Night' because it's so literal. It is just a man driving throughout the night. I like that silliness. To be in a video is a ridiculous thing. It's almost impossible to do it without any humour. — Richard Ayoade

Ayoade Quotes By Richard Ayoade

With a live performance, you feel nervous because there's a sense it could do well or badly based on how well you are performing, whereas the only variable with a film premiere is technical, which invariably you have very little control over, whether the sound is good, whether the acoustics of the room are good. — Richard Ayoade

Ayoade Quotes By Richard Ayoade

I'm pretty bad at seeing new films. — Richard Ayoade

Ayoade Quotes By Richard Ayoade

American television is very much created by the writers, just the volume of it. The writers are so key. You're just trying to do something that serves that script. And in general, film isn't all about the script, really. — Richard Ayoade

Ayoade Quotes By Richard Ayoade

Even so-called 'short novels' are pretty long and can take several hours to read, so make sure you stay hydrated.

I'll also take regular breaks and make sure I'm wearing loose-fitting clothing. — Richard Ayoade

Ayoade Quotes By Richard Ayoade

I've always felt that actors in my experience have a very good and accurate instinct about whether something feels right or not. They just have a sense because they have to literally do it. — Richard Ayoade

Ayoade Quotes By Richard Ayoade

The act of seeing any film generally is you knowing more than the characters, even if it's the classic Hitchcock shot of two people talking and a bomb being under the table. Part of the pleasure of it is seeing where people go wrong, and the irony of situations. — Richard Ayoade

Ayoade Quotes By Richard Ayoade

I find performing very difficult. It's difficult to be a good actor. I get very nervous, even though it sounds disingenuous, because you could legitimately go, 'Well, why do it?' — Richard Ayoade

Ayoade Quotes By Richard Ayoade

I think there's nothing worse than telling actors what to do in front of everyone, because then on the next take, everyone's waiting to see if you do that ... Everyone watches. It's just the worst thing. — Richard Ayoade

I think people have the capacity to be many different things and many seemingly contradictory behaviors. — Richard Ayoade

Ayoade Quotes By Richard Ayoade

I'm not good at watching myself. — Richard Ayoade
