Now, I have big-money offers on three movies, and I have director approval. That's kind of scary,' he says. 'No directors have been attached. That's a lot of pressure on me.

Cuba Gooding, Jr.

To be honest with you, a lot of directors can be very lazy.

Samantha Morton

Most actors go, 'I read the script and fell in love with it'; I fall in love with the directors.

Sam Worthington

I still think that movies are amazing; I respect actors and directors.

Joaquin Phoenix

Many plays - certainly mine - are like blank checks. The actors and directors put their own signatures on them.

Thornton Wilder

A lot of directors are great and they are fine but you know I think that Harry really takes a special point to really engage the actors and really make it feel like a safe place for them to explore whatever it is they want to explore in whatever scene with their character.

Will Estes

Directors say that you should get actors before they are recognized. They will be a pain or have an opinion.

Dianne Wiest

I don't think a director should have any kids. I don't even think it's good for your physical health. Even guys in their 30s look exhausted because directors never get enough sleep. What I do is stressful enough.

Tom Berenger

I'd love to see the rushes but it's just not allowed because directors and also a lot of actors feel that if they see their work, and the director likes what they're doing, the actor might try to correct their mistakes.

Corey Haim

I like directors who come on the set and create something that's a little dangerous, difficult or unusual.

Elia Kazan

I think they quite like me when I work because I'm one of the safer directors to back, because even if my films don't bring their costs in back home, once they're shown outside of India they manage to cover the costs.

Satyajit Ray

Directors and producers were afraid of a Dumont actor while at the same time they admired him.

Leon Askin

I have great respect for directors who know what they're doing.

Bill Mumy

I'd love to see more women working as directors and producers.

Ida Lupino

My sense is, I think it's okay for directors to do movies that speak to other work in their career.

Ivan Reitman

This great oracle of the East India Company himself admits that, if there is no power vested in the Court of Directors but that of the patronage, there is really no government vested in them at all.

Richard Cobden

We did Holy Grail, and I got my name up there as one of the directors. After that, I started moving more and more down the line I wanted to, which was making movies.

Terry Gilliam

In my first film, Five Corners, I played a very scary, violent crazed character, and it exposed me to a lot of directors.

John Turturro

One reason I left local news was that I was tired of the constant musical chairs among news directors.

Jessica Savitch

I've run into some S.O.B. directors, but I gave them back as good as I got.

Carroll O'Connor

I'm very manipulative towards directors. My theory is that everyone on the set is directing the film, we're all receiving art messages from the universe on how we should do the film.

Jeff Bridges

I've had really great experiences working with first-time directors. They come at filmmaking with fresh ideas. I've been very lucky that way.

Jeff Bridges

Some directors expect you to do everything; write, be producer, psychiatrist. Some just want you to die in a tragic accident during the shooting so they can get the insurance.

John Malkovich

I basically put myself into directors' hands and let them tell me what to do, and the more they told me what to do, the more I liked it.

Julie Christie

Get more women producers, writers, directors. Why should we expect men to do it for us? They can't.

Kathleen Turner

I'm lucky enough that directors sometimes seek me out for little projects that people don't even know about, that just surface later on.

Laura Dern

A lot of young directors, they're not confident; they're not open to the emotional level of the scene.

Terence Stamp

I love the work, I love being in front of the camera and working with actors and directors and creating something. For me, it's like learning everyday.

Estella Warren

Gotta watch out for directors.

Stephen Sondheim

In some cases, the casting directors have casted blindly and have not looked into my ethnic background.

Mario Lopez

I think Star Trek has been very double-edged for all of us - as actors, writers, directors.

Jonathan Frakes

It was a movement that had all the art critics, all the museum directors in its thrall.

Jack Levine

There are a few directors around who I have some excitement about spending my $7 at the theatre watching their movies.

Sean Penn

The majority of directors I've worked with didn't know how to talk to actors.

Stanley Tucci

I'm actually one who will encourage directors to cut my lines.

Stanley Tucci

I never had any classes or went to theatre school like a lot of actors, so all of my training has been on stage with different directors. That was a pretty good school room.

James Denton

I think theatre helped, only because it was acting experience. I got to work with a lot of directors.

James Denton

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

I don't like actors who try to talk directors into making their part bigger and that's really lame.

Franka Potente

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

I've worked with many directors, good ones and bad ones. So if I have a chance to work the good ones, I better put myself in their hands, and trust them, because that's my big opportunity to be different, and to be better than usual.

Thomas Kretschmann

Directors are not worried about casting beautiful women, but they are not sure that they want to cast great-looking men. My looks have prevented people from seeing my work.

Rob Lowe

I was never a villain on the stage. I always played strong, sympathetic types. My first stage role with a speaking part, believe it or not, was as a priest. It wasn't until I began acting in films that the producers and directors saw me primarily as a bizarre villain.

Conrad Veidt

To deny women directors, as I suspect is happening in the States, is to deny the feminine vision.

Jane Campion

It's really rare for film directors to be that interested in things other than themselves.

Alan Cumming

Directors and writers have a lot of stress as well, because they have people they answer to.

Alexis Bledel

Most directors have little lists in their heads of people they really want to work with.

Alan Parker

Control is the wrong word. The practice is very much about sharing, and, in any creative practice, some individuals, whether partners or directors, are much closer to certain projects than I could ever be.

Norman Foster

Some directors cast you because they trust you to do the performance - but then they forget to direct you.

Samantha Morton

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

When I decided I wanted to be an actor, I said I wanted to work with quality actors and directors.

Puff Daddy

All these directors who do different locations forget that one room can be shot from a million different angles and a million different ways. When I direct a movie, I'm going to use that.

Michael Pitt

Casting directors now just see me as the hard-core sniper or prison guard.

Barry Pepper

People wonder why first-time directors can make a brilliant picture, then suck on the second one. It's because they're a little terrified the first time. So they listen to all the experts around them.

James Caan

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

I love doing big movies. It's awesome! You have all these toys. The thing I like about this movie is, like they always say, directors have the biggest train sets! Don't tell anyone, but I'd do this for free.

Michael Bay

Do you know what directors go through? It's just hell. Like, why do I work so hard - to think I'm only going to see this movie five times and then never see it again 'cause I'm so sick of it? What is it worth, honestly?

Michael Bay

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

Michael Bay

I've worked with a lot of great directors.

Catherine Keener

If you work in casting, it's sort of not cool to want to act. A lot of people think that casting directors are frustrated actors, but it wasn't true with any of the casting people I knew.

Catherine Keener

Have you noticed how most directors are either bald or grey-haired?

Mackenzie Astin

I worked for John Ford, Howard Hawks, Henry Hathaway, Raoul Walsh - I worked for some real good directors.

Richard Farnsworth

But I don't really care for directors flaring up and trying to humble some actor, which they would do to try and make an example out of them so everybody else would stay on the ball - and David wasn't anything like that.

Richard Farnsworth

The director's who want to be innovative use the DVD as a tool to see what people have done in the past and you have other people who will actually take from better directors and that makes them better directors.

Jerry Bruckheimer

Nowadays they have 12 directors and 15 producers and 30 writers. And all the writers want their lines said a certain way-which isn't necessarily funny. I mean the lines aren't necessarily so funny to begin with.

Tim Conway

It's an embarrassment of riches because you have directors who don't better. You end up with so much stuff going on the screen that you don't know where to look, and that's what I consider self-indulgent.

John Dykstra

I get crushes on directors because they are so brilliant.

Dorothy Malone

I should mention that I am a member of the board of directors of Dimensional Fund Advisors.

Merton Miller

I get to play a great character while working with great actors and great directors on a great show.

Harry Hamlin

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

I was on the state board of directors of the American Civil Liberties Union.

Betty Hill

There are so few directors who are musical who appreciate music.

Alex North

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

Yes, there are directors I admire, the mavericks. Altman. There are many good directors.

Mark Rydell

It's sad - it's sad for us old enough to remember when directors ruled, and films were substantially better than they are today. But it's hard to argue with those kinds of grosses.

Mark Rydell

It's very difficult to break into motion pictures, but it's oddly easier for directors today because of independent films and cable, who have inherited for the most part those films of substance that the studios are reluctant to finance.

Mark Rydell

Directors, producers can make you look good or make you look bad.

Aaron Eckhart

Being a producer, I deal with a lot of different directors, and some of them would drive me insane with all the different histrionics, and the mystique that they carry.

Matthew Vaughn

Some people are directors and I think they should stay behind the camera.

Matthew Vaughn

I'd like to work with any actress from whom I can learn-one who has had many experiences with many directors and is willing to share some of her knowledge with me.

Fred Savage

Now that I'm taking some time off from school, I've been reading a lot to make sure I don't forget everything. It's mostly classics and nonfiction accounts from actors, directors and writers from the '40s and '50s.

Fred Savage

Good directors say, Here's where the play is. They stand by the heart of the matter. Some of them stand beside it.

Sam Waterston

I came across awful characters when I got some kind of status and came to Hollywood. Then you have directors trying to sleep with you, assuming that you will do things because of the way you dress.

Stacey Dash

But on this show, it's a good question because in the 35 shows that we've done now, I've really made a consistent effort to really shadow the directors because in many ways they have to be more prepared than feature directors.

Anthony Michael Hall

I think my favorite, and Coppola and that whole thing. East coast Italian directors I guess.

Anthony Michael Hall

Obviously with the onset of cable and satellite, there are more opportunities for programming and original programming, so it creates more opportunities for actors and producers and directors and everything.

Anthony Michael Hall

Somehow I got to be one of five or six actors that the directors would use as guinea pigs at this directing colloquium, where people pay to listen to and watch the directors direct.

Beth Henley

I remember feeling that Michael was extremely sensitive when it came to that moment. Most directors are and they usually rely, at least in my experience, on the actress to take over. And Michael is a gentleman.

Madeleine Stowe

I had been doing summer stock every summer while I was in college. We did a showcase, like most good conservatories do - monologues and things that agents and casting directors come to see. From that I got an agent.

Randy Harrison

It's often the case with directors that they don't like to share credit, which is the case of Stanley. He would prefer just A Film By Stanley Kubrick including music and everything.

Terry Southern

Most film directors do not come up with their own subjects or write their own screenplays.

Thomas Harrison

Other, far fewer, directors are more like the composer - conceptualizing the piece, scoring it, distributing its musical lines among a range of registers, chords, and instruments.

Thomas Harrison

So I moved to Europe and only came back when directors like Robert Altman would call me after they'd seen my work in Full Metal Jacket.

Vincent D'Onofrio

I'm a good actor in that sense for directors because I always do what they say.

Alex Cox

What I always meant by that was that I do believe that a lot of directors, and writers, and sometimes producers just lose their edge because they haven't seen anybody or talked to anybody or been with anybody who isn't a kind of replica of themselves for a long period of time.

Buck Henry

All directors are storytellers, so the motivation was to tell the story I wanted to tell. That's what I love.

Spike Lee

The one thing about program television that's absolutely incompatible with any concept of art is that all decisions have to be made by program directors, whereas art is autonomous. It may be dependent, but it knows no superiors.

Alexander Kluge

I want to work with great directors. I want to work on good material with good actors. I've probably done 20 movies at this point and a lot of independents. It's been an incredible ride and I love it and I'm just going to keep going and doing what I'm doing.

Famke Janssen

You have to give directors and cinematographers a word blueprint for visuals, but I had to learn that from experience.

Steven Bochco

Many French directors, having now realised there was no more real criticism, that the standards of the past have gone, are very offended about the quality of film criticism.

Wim Wenders
