Plastic surgery and breast implants are fine for people who want that, if it makes them feel better about who they are. But, it makes these people, actors especially, fantasy figures for a fantasy world. Acting is about being real being honest.
I do not want to act unless I have a a great intimacy with the people I'm working with.
Certain people want to see me solely as a pop act, but there are many different sides to Christina Aguilera besides the pop girl.
Act enthusiastic and you will be enthusiastic.
I like acting for now. But after seeing Apollo 13, what I really want to do is to be an astronaut. I'm dying to go to a space camp next summer!
The fact is that a man who wants to act virtuously in every way necessarily comes to grief among so many who are not virtuous.
Most actors really love it, that's what they want to do. They burn to do it. And so they'll read a script and think, that's an interesting part. And because they love acting, that blinds them to the fact that the rest of it is pretentious nonsense, which it very often is.
Luckily, I was raised by people who'd already seen all the yuck stuff, which is why they originally didn't want me to act. I understood the difference between getting a part at a Hollywood party and getting a job.
I want to be an all round entertainer, I want to act, make films, make albums, do whatever I can.
Do you want to know who you are? Don't ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you.
I want to act because I don't know how to do anything else.
I actually made an effort to reject acting, to shove it out of my body, because I didn't want my kids to have an actress as a mother-to have, like, a silly person.
My dad always said he couldn't remember a time when I did not want to act.
I knew at an early age I wanted to act. Acting was always easy for me. I don't believe in predestination, but I do believe that once you get where ever it is you are going, that is where you were going to be.
I love movies, I've always been interested in them, but I wanted to wait for the right time to start acting.
I knew I wanted to act, and I was really driven, so I kept going for it. We moved to L. A. full-time when I was 8 or 9.
So when I told my parents I wanted to go into acting because I was flunking out of my first year of junior college, they were relieved that I had picked something other than joining the army. But I can't imagine how they had high hopes for me.
I was told to avoid the business all together because of the rejection. People would say to me, 'Don't you want to have a normal job and a normal family?' I guess that would be good advice for some people, but I wanted to act.
When everyone around you is doing all this incredible pirate acting and you're having to sort of play the straight guy and move the story forward, you kind of want to be doing some of that pirate ripping it up stuff, but in truth, to be a part of that project is what I love.
Secretly, I had always wanted to go to Vegas, and have my own really bad act!

My career should adapt to me. Fame is like a VIP pass wherever you want to go.
If you're older you want to tell stories about the pool of human life and living and to communicate, not only to your age group but to do an age group that can begin to understand, that has enough experience of life far beyond the taste of life.
I don't know, I just want to be happy. I could be in a hole somewhere. Or I could completely lose it and be some hippy living in the woods with my dad.
Acting allows me to tell a lot of stories, you know start at the beginning, finish at the end, and tell everything in between. Modelling is just an image.
