Interviewing is tough, especially if you don't know what you're looking for.— Charlyne Yi
The most remarkable Charlyne Yi quotes that are new and everybody is talking about
I just realized that I'm just going to be who I am.
I don't need to adjust how I look for anyone or even for myself. Even if I have a pimple, I'm not going to cover it up with makeup.
Life is too short to be wondering, 'What if?'
So many people get deals, so many YouTubers get scripts and things made because they're constantly creating things on their own. Even if it's really cheap and it's really simple, if it's just good in itself then that's all that matters.
I think actions really do define how you feel, as opposed to just saying, "I care about you" or "I want to be with you."
I think sometimes it's hard to know what you feel, or to know what's real and what's not, because love or hate or any feeling is a belief. You can say you hate someone, but you don't truly know them.
I think sometimes people forget how to be nice to people. I try not to let it get to me.
It's interesting to see what people who you find talented come up with, so you work with them. Sometimes ideas come along quicker cause they'll come up with something and you'll be like, "It would have taken me forever to get to that point!" Because you're talking together, your brains are moving faster.
I do a little improv in my shows. Kind of like our movie, I'll do beats and ideas of dialogue, but I think there's less pressure because it's a live show. If you mess up, the audience laughs because we don't really know what we're doing. But as far as shooting, that was very scary, trying to make a point and drive the film. It definitely helped improvising.
Sometimes I feel really bad for the audience.
I don't know how to make them happy. And you just feel drained cause you're trying everything possible to turn things around. And sometimes it is possible to turn things around on stage, and I've done it before, but sometimes it's impossible.
What makes all those women sexy? Were they just born sexy? I guess it's the way they act. I don't want to have to act sexy. I just want to be me, and if I don't happen to be sexy, oh well. That's OK. I don't want to force something I'm not.
Even when I'm stressed out I'm not mean to people.
I'm not constantly rude to people. But sometimes people are so rude.
Throughout my whole life money has always been a problem.
But I didn't realize that we were poor when we were kids!
You can have examples of reasons to hate people, but if you analyze those reasons it's like, Oh, I'm hating that person based on one thing they did, but I don't actually know them well enough to hate them.
The internet's weird. It's kind of harvesting the negativity. I think negativity has always been out there, but because people are hiding behind the screen, they feel able to express these hateful feelings they've maybe been keeping inside.
I would never sign up to film my personal life.
Right now I'm sick of acting, so it's like, Maybe I'll do writing for a bit.
Then, when I'm tired of writing, I'll go work on my music. When I'm sick of music, I'll be like, I'm going to start performing comedy now. So it's good. It's not like I want to be famous or anything.
Compatibility is weird. Love is confusing. Love is one wild beast.
I think as human beings we contradict our feelings constantly, we make mistakes, but I think ultimately it comes down to actions to define how we feel about each other.
Collaboration is just about finding people who are better than you at certain things and combining your powers. Like, if I'm not the strongest at playing piano, I'll work with someone who's really good at it and we'll combine both our brains to write a song.
I wear glasses because I don't want something tugging my eyeball, but I wouldn't consider myself a "nerd." I don't know what really makes someone a nerd.
I'd love to help the entire world. Even to change the life of one child is amazing.
I think you have to be careful about not hurting someone.
The last thing I'd want to do is make a fool of someone, unless they saw the humor in it.
You can't help but feel the energy of the audience - and if you feel they hate you that feels weird and dirty. But I would never want to take it too seriously. It's understandable that you're not going to be everyone's cup of tea. I think that's helped me survive.
I feel like I get really energetic and hyper.
If I do well in a show, I can't sleep afterwards. If I don't do well, I get kinda drained. I think because it's like a battle on stage.
The idea of surprise is part of what makes something funny, or what gets a reaction. At least when I'm an audience member, after you hear a joke so many times it's not as funny because it loses its surprise or its twist. So I think funny has to do with surprise.
I think I have an obligation to be kind to people in general, otherwise I'll feel crappy about myself.
I think whatever comes natural is probably the truth, and the truth is the strongest form of anything - whether serious or funny.
