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

Samuel Taylor Coleridge, poet

If I am not right for something there are many talented actors out there that will get it.

Mark Wahlberg, actor

You have film actors doing TV, rap stars doing TV, with everyone kind of crossing the line.

Famke Janssen, actress

I don't think film actors need training, really.

Paul Giamatti, actor

If I can make a career for myself after Potter, and it goes well, and is varied and with longevity, then that puts to bed the 'child actors argument'.

I think it's even harder because I think as always, Hollywood is sort of glamour central for the world, and the entire world looks to it for not only entertainment, but the whole idea of the youth factor and youth being sold to our culture via young actors and actresses.

Anthony Michael Hall, actor

A lot of young actors will do a scene and then run off and look at themselves. I don't believe in that at all.

Charlotte Rampling, actress

My influences were Peter Sellers and the great British character actors.

Tracey Ullman, comedian

It is unfortunate that the poor judgment shown by a small group of young actors has tarnished the reputation of every child who has ever appeared before a camera.

Fred Savage, actor

It is interesting to be here and to see that for certain actors they have to live in a way that you think of nobody living anymore except for in small towns. They have such elaborate double lives.

Bill Condon, director

There are certain actors you watch in a movie, and you think, 'Wow, that guy is very skilled.'

Jason Marsden, actor

One forgets too easily the difference between a man and his image, and that there is none between the sound of his voice on the screen and in real life.

Robert Bresson, director

A lot of male actors are method actors and they become the characters which they both were.

Izabella Scorupco, actress

Young actors are serious about their work and don't take any time out from it. I'm very serious about my work; there are probably only two films I've done where I had a really good time.

Miranda Otto, actress

You must have this charm to reach the pinnacle. It is made of everything and of nothing, the striving will, the look, the walk, the proportions of the body, the sound of the voice, the ease of the gestures. It is not at all necessary to be handsome or to be pretty; all that is needful is charm.

Sarah Bernhardt, actress

Most child actors go through that. Unless you can transition into an adult star, your career is over.

Morgan Brittany, actress

Heath Ledger's performance in 'The Dark Knight' quite simply changed the game. He raised the bar not just for actors in superhero films, but young actors everywhere; for me. His performance was dark, anarchic, dizzying, free, and totally, thrillingly, dangerous.

Tom Hiddleston, actor

Child actors come off as work being their life and doing it 24/7, but I still have those days where it's totally, like, whatever: shopping, movies, adventures.

Hailee Steinfeld, actress

There's a very small group of elite actresses who are my age, who people want to work with. It's not easy to get a good job with good actors.

Amanda Peet, actress

Oh absolutely. I had the pleasure to get to know a lot of really talented young actors before they even really hit it big. And yet what we all had and shared in common was a love for movies.

Chad Lowe, actor

You know when you watch old movies, it's always the small parts you remember, the character actors who come in like a breath of fresh air.

Amy Sedaris, actress

All men practice the actor's art.


Actors get pigeonholed very quickly, particularly movie actors. In the theater, one is more used to casting people against type and trusting that their talent and skill will get them through.

Sam Mendes, director

You can take wonderfully talented actors, wonderfully talented writers and producers, and, uh, do a wonderful show!... but if it doesn't hit with the public in two minutes, it's bye-bye.

Charlotte Rae, actress

If a farmer fills his barn with grain, he gets mice. If he leaves it empty, he gets actors.

Bill Vaughan, journalist

I think musicians oftentimes have the right skill set to be good actors. And with Rihanna, I noticed her and knew of her obviously, and was very taken with her charisma and her confidence.

Peter Berg, actor

Any actress who appears in public without being well-groomed is digging her own grave.

Joan Crawford, actress

People on series are now given a lot more opportunities, sometimes more than film actors.

Alyssa Milano, actress

I've never fancied that footballer lifestyle. I suppose I could live that kind of flash life. People stereotype child actors and kind of expect you to go off the rails a bit, be a bit crazy, but that's not really happened yet. I've got a big family so that helps, and they live really close to the studios so it's just so much easier.

Rupert Grint, actor

I like young actors because they're so unspoiled, not like some of those actors who are about half an hour into their fifteen minutes of fame by the time they get to me.

John Hughes, director

Acting deals with very delicate emotions. It is not putting up a mask. Each time an actor acts he does not hide; he exposes himself.

Jeanne Moreau, actress

People use the Method as a shield; it shields them from being vulnerable. I hear all these young actors who are like, 'I'm Method, I'm gonna go live in the house, you know, I totally get it, I've done it, I've been there', but one thing I know is it kills spontaneity.

Mark Ruffalo, actor

I'm not Tom Cruise. Very few British actors are. If you look at the body of work I've done it's pretty obvious I'm not going to make a 'Mission: Impossible.'

Jude Law, actor

Psychoanalysis. Almost went three times - almost. Then I decided what was peculiar about me was probably what made me successful. I've seen some very talented actors go into analysis and really lose it.

Bette Davis, actress

The actor's popularity is evanescent; applauded today, forgotten tomorrow.

Edwin Forrest,

For an actress to be a success, she must have the face of a Venus, the brains of a Minerva, the grace of Terpsichore, the memory of a MaCaulay, the figure of Juno, and the hide of a rhinoceros.

Ethel Barrymore, actress

A woman in agony of spirit might turn her head just so; a man in deep humiliation probably would wring his hands in such a way. From straws like these, drawn from completely different sources, the fabric of a character may be built.

Eleanor Robson Belmont, actress

An actor rides in a bus or railroad train; he sees a movement and applies it to a new role. The whole garment in which the actor hides himself is made of small externals of observation fitted to his conception of a role.

Eleanor Robson Belmont, actress

All good actors are easy to work with. It's the ones that aren't very good who tend to be very difficult.

Tom Wilkinson, actor

The thing about anything in life is you have to get ready for it. Study, learn and in terms of acting, there's a lot to learn. The bigger culture you have in life, the better actor you'll be. You'll have more to pull on.

Jacqueline Bisset, actress

Acting is the expression of a neurotic impulse. It's a bum's life. The principal benefit acting has afforded me is the money to pay for my psychoanalysis.

Marlon Brando, actor

A man who strains himself on the stage is bound, if he is any good, to strain all the people sitting in the stalls.

Bertolt Brecht, poet

I think good actors can sort of see into people and immediately you have a chemistry with them or not. It's like an affair with no mess. You don't actually consummate it, but you get to pretend, imagine what it would be like.

John Cusack, actor

Like De Niro. He's one of the best character actors we have ever had.

Vincent D'Onofrio, actor
