Unless the theatre can ennoble you, make you a better person, you should flee from it.

Konstantin Stanislavisky,

I don't think an actor's job is to be recognized. I think an actor's job is to facilitate the writing in a way that changes the way people think. No other business does that.

Sylvester Stallone, actor

Acting is the perfect idiot's profession.

Katharine Hepburn, actress

You've got to perform in a role hundreds of times. In keeping it fresh one can become a large, madly humming, demented refrigerator.

Arsenio Hall, comedian

I don't get acting jobs because of my looks.

Alec Baldwin, actor

There's a confidence that comes from youth and not knowing better. But there comes a point, as an actor, when you do know better, and that is when the fear starts.

Kiefer Sutherland, actor

An actor works with their soul and their thought.

Monica Bellucci, actress

To see him act is like reading Shakespeare by flashes of lightning.

One of the things I find about acting is that the less the audience knows about the actor, the more they're able to believe in him in the role.

Hayden Christensen, actor

The thing is, I want to play real characters and not all girls can be pretty. The thing is, you get these girls who say 'I'm a character actor' then you see them in a role and nothing has really changed but the outfit.

Juliette Lewis, actress

I never consciously said, 'I want to be an actor.' It sounds stupid, but it's kind of like being a painter or something. You don't say, 'From today on I'm going to be a painter.' It's not something conscious - you've just been painting pictures all your life.

Franka Potente, actress

One of the pleasures of being an actor is quite simply taking a walk in someone else's shoes. And when I look at the roles I've played, I'm kind of amazed at all the wonderful adventures I've had and the different things I've learned.

Willem Dafoe, actor

Studios have been trying to get rid of the actor for a long time and now they can do it. They got animation. NO more actor, although for now they still have to borrow a voice or two. Anyway, I find it abhorrent.

James Coburn, actor

I think if you're an actor, then you can work on stage - but if you've never done it before, you're going to have picked up a few things that you're going to need to change when you're working on stage.

Dominic Monaghan, actor

An actor shouldn't undergo psychoanalysis, because there are a lot of things you're better off not knowing.

One of the strangest things about being an actor is that people you don't know feel that they are allowed to comment on your hair, body, clothes, relationships.

I've made a career over the last seventeen years of mostly playing men in uniform, especially cops. The one thing for an actor that is death, is if you're bored. The boredom will show in your work.

Benjamin Bratt, actor

Let's face facts, this is visual medium, there's a very high premium put on people who are good-looking. But the minute you rely on that you get yourself in trouble. You certainly don't make a career out of that anymore as an actor.
