I'm impressed with the people from Chicago. Hollywood is hype, New York is talk, Chicago is work.
Stupidity talks, vanity acts.
National film industries tend to move in cycles. In Australia right now, we're on a high, a feeling of potential, which as yet shows no sign of flagging. But the word "industry" is misleading. A small national cinema has no industry in the Hollywood sense.
On a scale of the United States, the Hollywood influence on what comes out, that's not the majority views of across the country. What we read in Us Weekly or People magazine, or Entertainment Tonight, it's not what the majority of the country is thinking.
We have two ears and one tongue so that we would listen more and talk less.
I want to live every moment totally and intensely. Even when I'm giving an interview or talking to people, that's all that I'm thinking about.
I talked to ex-wives of musicians of the '70s for research. They're the funniest people in the world, yet there is this sad, beautiful thing in their eyes that says they've seen more than they could ever possibly tell you.
People have told me about organized crime in the fashion industry, but I can't talk about that. I'm looking to stay alive.
If one could only teach the English how to talk, and the Irish how to listen, society here would be quite civilized.
What I learned from Lennon was something that did stay with me my whole career, which is to be very straightforward. I actually love talking about taking pictures, and I think that helps everyone.
The opposite of talking is not listening. The opposite of talking is waiting.
Hollywood hasn't aggressively pursued me. Neither have I aggressively pursued Hollywood.
I have to remind my dad, 'Journalists - no matter how many cigars they smoke with you - are not your friends, so don't talk to them.'
I want to do movies but not talk about them.
Talk sense to a fool and he calls you foolish.
I mean, Joel talks to the actors more than I do and I probably do production stuff a little more than he does.
I make a lot of money, but I don't want to talk about that. I work very hard and I'm worth every cent.
Modern poets talk against business, poor things, but all of us write for money. Beginners are subjected to trial by market.
There is so much good in the worst of us, and so much bad in the best of us, that it behoves all of us not to talk about the rest of us.
People ask me if I ever feel outside the Hollywood loop, and I never do, because both of us do a lot of theatre, so it's great for New York and it's also half-way between Europe and the west coast, so it's the best of both worlds.
People talk worse about people than they talk good about people, because a lot of people like drama.
When a woman is talking to you, listen to what she says with her eyes.
I'm not a Hollywood basher because enough good movies come out of the Hollywood system every year to justify its existence, without any apologies.
We reproach people for talking about themselves; but it is the subject they treat best.
The internal dialogue is what grounds people in the daily world. The world is such and such or so and so, only because we talk to ourselves about its being such and such and so and so. The passageway into the world of shamans opens up after the warrior has learned to shut off his internal dialogue.
