I've always been spontaneous and outgoing... I've tried lots of things so I've got some good life experiences, which is great 'cause it means I've got lots of material to work with as an actor.
Yes I'm still working, but my life's no longer filled with it.
I have reached a place in my life where I need to sit down and say, 'Well, what do I do? What's best for me?' I need to look into options for the future.
The point is not to take the world's opinion as a guiding star but to go one's way in life and working unerringly, neither depressed by failure nor seduced by applause.
Yes, and I can sit down on a white piece of paper and work because I don't believe too much into inspiration, only I'm waiting for inspiration, work and then inspiration may come. It's a little too easy to say that.
Do all the work you can; that is the whole philosophy of the good way of life.
Life grants nothing to us mortals without hard work.
The boundaries which divide Life from Death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where the one ends and where the other begins?
Life is pretty simple: You do some stuff. Most fails. Some works. You do more of what works. If it works big, others quickly copy it. Then you do something else. The trick is the doing something else.
It's what's left in life, to work with interesting people.
I think that's one of the real joys of working with a small budget - that you have to determine exactly what it is that you need and want to say.
The automobile engine will come, and then I will consider my life's work complete.
Most of the time it's the role. Sometimes it's the story and sometimes it just the paycheck. It's the little movies that come out as stories or the fact that I have work to go out, you know what I'm saying, you can only be out so long without work, you start getting antsy.
If I had not passed through trial - through passion, one could say - through these years so painful and so rich, I don't believe I could take on my life and my career as I do today.
For me, I have to say that I like to work a lot too, but I like not working better. The perfect scenario is when you just worked and you know something's coming up, then you have four, five, six months off. But you know you're going to have a job later.
The demand that I make of my reader is that he should devote his whole Life to reading my works.
To say that a work of art is good, but incomprehensible to the majority of men, is the same as saying of some kind of food that it is very good but that most people can't eat it.
Actually, I only have a few friends in real life. And when I say friends, I'm referring to those people who I've known since the 1960s.
I don't wear fur and I understand their cause. I am the biggest animal lover in the world. I have four dogs and two horses, and I have rescued animals all my life.
The only things in my life that compatibly exists with this grand universe are the creative works of the human spirit.
Let us work without theorizing, tis the only way to make life endurable.
I'm a big shoe person. Sometimes I'll be punky, the next day I'll be preppy. Every day after work, my mom and I go shopping. My dad is about to kill me. I say, 'We need it, daddy!'
I wouldn't say anything I ever did in film would be something I'd use the word proud about. I've done better work in the theater.
Life has brought me work to do on myself these past two years.
You respect all of these people that you know in the business as actors. And they sort of turn around and say, we really like your work. It's a nice acknowledgment.
