Even a fool knows you can't touch the stars, but it won't keep the wise from trying.
-- Harry Anderson

I know that if I can't move people, then I have no business being an actor.
-- Alan Arkin

A good director creates an environment, which gives the actor the encouragement to fly.
-- Kevin Bacon

I went into show business because I love to work with people, and what I enjoy most about acting is rehearsing and getting to know people and their talents, forming relationships. Working in this business, barriers drop and you get into people real quickly.
-- Scott Bakula

Great acting can be almost a psychotic mix of self-consciousness and unself-consciousness. And that's the terrible conflict. You have to be free to jump off into that volcano and you have to be pathologically self-conscious.
-- Alec Baldwin

You're not a star until they can spell your name in Karachi.
-- Humphrey Bogart

In live stage, the actor lives.
-- Peter Boyle

An actor is at most a poet and at least an entertainer.
-- Marlon Brando

I'm foremost an actor. I feel embarrassed being compared to the guys who really work at it. I fake it, I make believe I know all about it, which is what you're supposed to do as an actor.
-- Lloyd Bridges

I'm very manipulative towards directors. My theory is that everyone on the set is directing the film, we're all receiving art messages from the universe on how we should do the film.
-- Jeff Bridges

If we had 3 million exhibitionists and only one voyeur, nobody could make any money.
-- Albert Brooks

Nothing to me feels as good as laughing incredibly hard.
-- Steve Carell

Most actors spend a lot of time training themselves to be an actor. And I kind of didn't do that. I just started doin' it in front of an audience and had to deliver.
-- David Carradine

Certainly anybody who auditions for the role is an actor, so everybody brings whatever backstory they have, their experiences in LA. Good or bad.
-- Thomas Haden Church

Failure and its accompanying misery is for the artist his most vital source of creative energy.
-- Montgomery Clift

You jot down ideas, memories, whatever, concerning your real life that somehow parallels the character you're playing, and you incorporate that in your scene work.
-- Chris Cooper

I love what I do. I take great pride in what I do. And I can't do something halfway, three-quarters, nine-tenths. If I'm going to do something, I go all the way.
-- Tom Cruise

One of the pleasures of being an actor is quite simply taking a walk in someone else's shoes. And when I look at the roles I've played, I'm kind of amazed at all the wonderful adventures I've had and the different things I've learned.
-- Willem Dafoe

Any form of art is a form of power; it has impact, it can affect change - it can not only move us, it makes us move.
-- Ossie Davis

When you become a star, you don't change - everyone else does.
-- Kirk Douglas

I'm not a big filmophile. I don't watch movies a lot for a hobby. I spend all my time watching sporting events. Because, opposed to movies, you can never tell how they're going to end.
-- Michael Douglas

I know very little about acting. I'm just an incredibly gifted faker.
-- Robert Downey, Jr.

I don't know what its like for most actors, but really clearly for myself acting has always been the fulfilment of personal fantasies. It isn't just art, its about being a person I've always wanted to be, or being in a situation, or being a hero.
-- Richard Dreyfuss

Acting is the easiest money you'll ever make in your life, and directing is probably the hardest money.
-- Charles S. Dutton

I'll keep on acting 'til they wipe the drool. I like the business. I like to do different parts and diverse characters. I haven't lost my enthusiasm yet!
-- Robert Duvall

I don't believe in pessimism. If something doesn't come up the way you want, forge ahead. If you think it's going to rain, it will.
-- Clint Eastwood

As you grow in this business, you learn how to do more with less.
-- Morgan Freeman

I'm an actor... I do a job and I go home. Why are you interested in me? You don't ask a truck driver about his job.
-- James Gandolfini

Do your job and demand your compensation - but in that order.
-- Cary Grant

Dysfunctional families have sired a number of pretty good actors.
-- Gene Hackman

I like to act with people that know what they're doing.
-- Ed Harris

As an artist, I understand that, and I value the creative input of the artist.
-- Charlton Heston

I decided to become an actor because I was failing in school and I needed the credits.
-- Dustin Hoffman

Being unemployed is not good for an actor. No, it isn't, no matter how unsuccessful you are. Because you always remember getting fired from all the restaurants. You remember that stuff very, very strongly.
-- Philip Seymour Hoffman

You know, this is such a rich time that we've just been involved in, and there's really a job now for historians. Film is still very young. This is the first hundred years of filmmaking. So I think it's important that we have some sense of history and continuity. Especially in film.
-- Dennis Hopper

A lot of people are taking those risks on the basis of something so unconsidered that it's completely capricious. That's one of the reasons why actors are not respected anymore as actors.
-- William Hurt

Acting is fun for me and it doesn't really matter how, whether it's hard work or easy work, it's always fun.
-- Tommy Lee Jones

I do give a great deal of forethought and zone in on character and all sorts of things like that. Never before have I just stuffed something away in the back cupboard of my brain because it was just such a crazy concept.
-- Greg Kinnear

I like a lot of things about my job, but in particular I like that the actors get to come to work and explore behavior, explore people's life rules. The rules that we set up for ourselves to live by, when do we break them? When do we change them? Those are the things that turn me on about acting.
-- Peter Krause

If you really do want to be an actor who can satisfy himself and his audience, you need to be vulnerable.
-- Jack Lemon
