People accuse me of being Methody, but I'm not at all. The one thing I don't want people to see is me. I don't want them to be able to recognize my faults and failures and qualities, and I won't use those things to spark off emotions or to illustrate.
Please know that I am aware of the hazards. I want to do it because I want to do it. Women must try to do things as men have tried. When they fail, their failure must be a challenge to others.
I've always believed that if you put in the work, the results will come. I don't do things half-heartedly. Because I know if I do, then I can expect half-hearted results.
Success represents the 1% of your work which results from the 99% that is called failure.
Women must try to do things as men have tried. When they fail their failure must be but a challenge to others.
Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorius triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.
Before success comes in any man's life, he's sure to meet with much temporary defeat and, perhaps some failures. When defeat overtakes a man, the easiest and the most logical thing to do is to quit. That's exactly what the majority of men do.
There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.
And, hey, I'm not under the illusion that everything's just going to be hunky-dory work wise forever. I've never been under that illusion. Things could go away tomorrow.
When you work as an actor, you've got to feel safe even in what appears to be the simplest things.
Well, I don't think I've ever consciously come up with tricks and tools to, kind of, hide. I do think I'm a bit more vigilant, in terms of safety issues and things. And sometimes it is kind of nice to try to hold onto your anonymity.
I was a ballet dancer and that kind of bled into musical theater. I was constantly in rehearsal for one thing or another.
You have to look out for becoming trapped in a place where people want to see you all the time doing one thing.
I have to turn down roles I really want to do because I can't travel. But that's okay, because you make peace with things in your mind.
Men often applaud an imitation and hiss the real thing.
Hateful to me as are the gates of hell, Is he who, hiding one thing in his heart, Utters another.
The most difficult thing in life is to know yourself.
I believe that you should gravitate to people who are doing productive and positive things with their lives.
Sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.
The most important things are the hardest things to say. They are the things you get ashamed of because words diminish your feelings - words shrink things that seem timeless when they are in your head to no more than living size when they are brought out.
Experience taught me a few things. One is to listen to your gut, no matter how good something sounds on paper. The second is that you're generally better off sticking with what you know. And the third is that sometimes your best investments are the ones you don't make.
Not so much in Canada, but certainly in the US, as I'm sure you know, money is all, and if they can get another 26 programs of the same thing even though it advances the culture or those actor's careers not at all it doesn't matter.
The Paris store Colette is successful because it's a filter for things that are made elsewhere. It's the kind of store France needs.
It is not as though the process of production holds any mystery for me, I know exactly what it involves and I know the predominant concern in shooting one of those things is production values - or as they would say, seeing it all up there on screen.
When I left Ohio when I was 17 and ended up in New York and realised that not all films had the giant crab monsters in them, it really opened up a lot of things for me.
