I'm a performer, comedian, entertainer, writer and director.

Dennis Hopper, actor

I had come to the point when I realized it was unlikely that my film career was going to move beyond a certain level of role. And I was - because I had graphic instances of it - handicapped by the success of Star Trek. A director would say, 'I don't want Jean-Luc Picard in my movie' - and this was compounded by X-Men as well.

Patrick Stewart, actor

As a producer, I probably am a little stronger than most, since I was a director originally.

Roger Corman, producer

I want to work with great directors and try not to put too much pressure on myself and just read things for the story and recognize when I'm drawn to something for the right reasons and try to maintain some sanity.

Rachel McAdams, actress

I will argue my points; I will have my opinions. But at the end of the day, it's the director's choice.

Amy Irving, actress

I think every director has a different take, some are good, some are bad. The directors you get on best with sometimes don't make the best films, so who's to say who is right.

Tim Roth, actor

I directed before I was even in television; I directed in the theatre for seven years, so that was my trade anyway. But in the UK, I've given up any hope of being considered a director.

Mel Smith, actor

I only travel to good material, a good director and a good company. I won't work in another country for a year any longer, because I have a lovely wife and I adore her and I can't bear to be away from her.

Robert Carlyle, director

It all has to do with the director, the captain of the ship. He sets the pace, the mood. If the director is quiet, the set is quiet. If the director is loud, then everybody has to be louder to be heard.

Eva Marie Saint, actress

I was able to go from stage hand to floor manager to assistant director to director in a year because there was just no one else to do it and what I didn't realise and what people don't understand now about television is that we used to do about five shows a day.

Scott Caan, actor

Michael Bay, director

What I look for in a script is something that challenges me, something that breaks new ground, something that allows me to flex my director muscle. You have got to think fast in this business, you've got to keep reinventing yourself to stay on top.

Michael Bay, director

A lot of directors don't want the pressure of a movie the size of Pearl Harbor. But I love it. I thrive on it.

Michael Bay, director

Maybe I have just a younger voice than many other directors.

I've worked with a lot of great directors.

Catherine Keener, actress

I think movies are a director's medium in the end. Theater is the actor's medium. Theater is fast, and enjoyable, and truly rewarding. I believe in great live performance.

Sam Mendes, director

I still can't quite believe it. Although there was something about the fact that it was a first-time writer, a first-time producer, and a first-time director all at the same time.

Sam Mendes, director

As a first-time director in America, I feel I've been very fortunate.

Sam Mendes, director

How can you have a director that doesn't go to work with the crew every day and talk to them?

Larry Kasdan is a great director.

Brion James, actor

My musical director, Mark Cherry, is the most wonderful person who ever lived on God's good green Earth. He's my director, he does the arrangements. Really, he does everything - including certain janitorial chores!

Brett Somers, actress

My interpretation of a strong director is someone who knows their story. That's what directors are, they're storytellers because they're directing where your focus is going to be as an audience.

Dennis Quaid, actor

So whatever I might have started to learn at that age was all undone by the next director and next crew in the next cheap picture, because I was allowed to get away with murder.

Jackie Cooper, actor

I just knew how to do the one thing I did, and whether I did it well or not depended on who the director was.

Jay Roach, director

During my six years with them Dr Garnet Davey (subsequently Research Director) constantly supported me and, I have no doubt, fought many battles on my behalf to keep the initially controversial programme going.

James W. Black, scientist

I'm not like one of those actors who's a frustrated director.

Gary Sinise, actor

As a writer, you have control of the words you put on the page. But once that manuscript leaves your hand, you give control to the reader. As a director, you are limited by everything: weather, budget, and egos.

Nicholas Meyer, writer

I'm not one of these directors, so far, that wants to have a whole separate director's cut of these things. So far they've turned out to be kind of the length that they wanted to be.

Jay Roach, director

I do think that's so much a part of what being a director is - in working with actors - to really try and be sensitive to what each actor needs to get to where he wants to be.

Bill Condon, director

There was an interesting article in Los Angeles Magazine about women directors. A woman director makes one bad independent film and her career is over. Guys tend to get an opportunity to learn from their mistakes.

Dick Wolf, producer

It's kind of interesting to be a director who is all of a sudden being an actor playing an agent. This is my whole world!

Mark Rydell, director

As for Tenacious D, of course it could work as a full length movie; all it requires is a great writer and great director with an ability to think outside of conventional film comedy.

David Cross, actor

As a director he was not that interested in Vader.

David Prowse, actor

The director is planning on titling the film 'Yummy Fur' so we are probably planning on changing the title of the book to 'Yummy Fur' to match the film.

Most actors are insecure enough already without having a director who adds to that.

Marie Windsor, actress

Yes, they allowed us to play around a lot because, like we said, the director's such a good comedy director.

One longs for a director with a sense of imagination.

Beth Henley, playwright

Marlon was more of a formal zoo director type.

Sometimes the producer has more say and the director takes what he is given. On other occasions, you don't see the producer very much and the director is the one who it is all about.

Julie Harris, actress

When I made my first film, I didn't think of it as directing, so it wasn't like I set out to become a director.

Kathryn Bigelow, director

I can't help thinking if she - the director of a government agency - is this ignorant about what funding is available and where the money comes from - how often lower-level bureaucrats must give wrong answers when people are looking for help to start a business.

Matthew Lesko, entertainer

It could be a great script but the director is not the right person for me to work for at this time. So there are a lot of elements that come into play and a lot of variables, but more than anything it's got to be a great script and a great character.

Blair Underwood, actor

You have to pretend to live in those clothes that they lived in, to live within the climate that they had then. You have to imagine with the help, obviously, of all the other technicians that are around - the writer, the director, the other actors.

Derek Jacobi, actor

I believe the director is the one that sets the mood and if you have this hysterical director it's a domino effect. I would work for him forever, for nothing. Don't tell my agent that.

Elizabeth Pena, actress

Every time I work with a European director, I find they hire the person that captures the spirit of the role. Americans tend to hire the best face. The person that looks more like the role, whether they can perform the role or not is a bonus.

Elizabeth Pena, actress

The love scenes that worked, regardless of the director, were the ones where the actors weren't fearful. When somebody was fearful, you could see it right away. It takes you out of the story, and that's to be avoided at all costs.

Jennifer Beals, actress

I would like you to consider the difference in the time from 1963 to date. The FBI, at that time, was headed by Mr. Hoover who had been appointed Director continuously. He had, I would say, a good reputation.

John Sherman Cooper, politician

What happens is things come to you - director, script - and if you respond to it, it's because it's tapping into some part of what's inside you, and different roles tap into different parts.

Sean Penn, actor

For a director and a producer to be named on the writing credits is practically unheard of.

Terry Southern, writer

The thing about For Better or Worse is the only thing that made me an okay director for that is that I have a sense of humor, and it was supposed to be funny.
