Cinema quotes Movie Quotes by Famous People


  • I look forward to the day when I can do a small movie and act, and it's not about me wearing a fucking bathing suit or chaps.
    Jessica Alba Quotes
  • The movies that I do are usually physically demanding in one way or another. It's a good way to keep your health on track. Especially when you've been on-set for 14 hours, it's nice to relieve that stress in another way than having to rely on a big meal and wine.
    Jessica Alba Quotes
  • We've all been living in denial about it, but now it's starting to sink in and it's very upsetting. As we count down to the last three episodes, it's getting harder and harder to read the lines, do the scenes, without one of us breaking down in tears. And I have to admit, I'm a pretty emotional person and I'm probably taking this harder than the others. This has been my family for ten years and now suddenly I'm wondering what life is going to be like without that closeness.
    Jennifer Aniston Quotes
  • Well, the trouble with "Me, Myself and Irene" - although it's a brilliant performance and Jim Carrey's absolutely one of the best and I love his energy and what he did in that film - but it's sort of bending towards the social misunderstanding of what schizophrenia is. It's not about duel personalities, it's about separate planes of reason.
    Russell Crowe Quotes
  • I would look at the 28-year-old guy playing the war veteran in a film and tell my parents, "I don't know why the director doesn't see me in that role. I might be a little short, but I can do it.".
    Russell Crowe Quotes
  • I realized that no matter what I thought in the past about how I constructed a character, I needed to know that the outside shell looked OK. If you're going to be a pirate, wear an eye patch. The more you inform yourself and fuel the internal engine that drives the character, then you get to the point where you can be standing on a hillside saying no dialogue but completely communicating to every person that's watching that film all of those peaks of desperation, joy, sadness and acceptance without saying a single word.
    Russell Crowe Quotes
  • The thing about films is you learn new stuff all the time. You think you can get to a point where you've got it all down. But then another, different situation arises.
    Russell Crowe Quotes
  • I've always felt what I do is extraordinary - being able to make these pictures and doing something you love. So, I'll just keep doing it. I love it, I don't do it for the awards.
    Tom Cruise Quotes
  • Shakespeare was deja vu for me. It was so cool. I felt as if I had seen his words already, knew them all by heart. Then, after I began studying scientology, I realized the words had come from my heart in a previous life. That’s why I say that as glorious and enviable as my present life is, making “War of the Worlds” and all those other great movies can’t compare to writing “Romeo and Juliet” or the sonnets.
    Tom Cruise Quotes
  • For instance, I think one shouldn't always talk about "the government" but about the people who are in the government. One shouldn't always generalize. But if someone hates us from the bottom of their heart, they will see exactly what they want to see in our film.
    Tom Cruise Quotes
  • I started to produce pictures because I've been in so many and I just love making movies. I like to be fully involved in each movie I do whether I'm starring in it or producing it. I look at the rushes every day and discuss the film with the director, throwing in advice if needed. I recognise the importance of every stage of film making and so many things can go wrong. I try to create an environment where the least mistakes can happen. I see them coming up because I've been there, so now it's easier to find solutions and rectify problems.
    Tom Cruise Quotes
  • After seeing the film we feared for our lives, even in the bathtub.
    Tom Cruise Quotes
  • I haven't deliberately set out to play the blonde bombshell in my movies. In fact, it's probably been quite the opposite. After the success of The Mask, I wasn't offered all that many blonde bombshell parts, to be honest. I think people believed from the beginning that I could actually walk and talk at the same time.
    Cameron Diaz Quotes
  • The expectations are probably bigger in Europe than they are in America, largely because it was bigger hit here than in the States. That said, there's a huge promotional push behind the film, and everyone involved is on tenter hooks to see how it does.
    Cameron Diaz Quotes
  • I turned down three films during the making of Gangs of New York, so I know there is a lot riding on this for me. There were a lot of phone calls, meetings, faxes and cancellations. But that is the price of being able to stay on a film like this and try and take on something different.
    Cameron Diaz Quotes
  • Well it's a risk to do a movie of this calibre on a subject matter and a point in history people are not very familiar with. It's a tough subject to sell - so salary-wise you have to make sacrifices to make a certain film happen. I would have been an idiot to pass up the opportunity to work with Mr Scorsese.
    Leonardo DiCaprio Quotes
  • All I know is that when you make a movie it's something you have to live with forever. It's not a job I take lightly.
    Leonardo DiCaprio Quotes
  • Certainly after Titanic, where my face was put on every magazine cover around the world and the movie was such a phenomenon, I really had no control over that. So for the last couple of years, media-wise I've been trying to regain some control in what people say about me.
    Leonardo DiCaprio Quotes
  • The first movie that ever scared me was The Exorcist. I remember sitting in front of the television with my mother, curled up on the couch, watching that movie and once that movie was over, I could not sleep in the bed alone; I had to sleep with my mum after that because I was so petrified. Even to this day, I can't watch it.
    Carmen Electra Quotes
  • Hopefully we have made a movie that people are going to find funny and something that can be a shared experience for the entire family in a way that's emotionally satisfying as a story but also works as a comedy and captures the spirit of the holidays all kind of rolled into one.
    Will Ferrell Quotes
  • Film, I think, is visceral. It has the power to draw you in and have you experience something on an emotional level that you may not be able logically to explain.
    Mel Gibson Quotes
  • I like to be in control. I'm quite a bossy lady. But producing is a nightmare. It makes a lot of people nervous, particularly when they realise the producer's boyfriend is the star of the film.
    Elizabeth Hurley Quotes
  • I don't think audiences want to see real-life couples in romantic films. It's sexier to have love scenes between strangers. Anyway, I'd never want to inflict that upon the public.
    Elizabeth Hurley Quotes
  • It's all to do with Austin Powers. They want me in that silver mini skirt. It's very much a fabulous kids' movie. At a private screening the children adored it. The sillier you are, the more you fall over, the more they love you.
    Elizabeth Hurley Quotes
  • I was completely clueless. Not only did the crocodile direct us with no script, no story and absolutely no idea of one scene to the next, he would not let us see rushes. I didn't even know how I looked. He'd stand in front of the camera. There'd be the video people and the camera people, and he'd actually block the screen so I couldn't see it. We filmed him blocking the screen so I couldn't see it!
    Steve Irwin Quotes
  • I've been catching crocodiles all my life and in this movie you're going to see me grab and hold a 12 foot Australian Saltwater Crocodile. They happen to be the biggest predator on our earth. They hit so hard and fast that if you're within strike range from the water's edge, they will explode out and hit before you can get out of their way. Strike range is half their body weight. When you see Terri in the boat getting attacked by the big croc and you see fear on her face, that's not acting. That's fear. It's real. And by crikey, we have a lot of fun doing it.
    Steve Irwin Quotes
  • I am optimistic globally. So many scientists are working frantically on the reparation of our planet. Unfortunately there are countries who are still destroying it, but we really hope the conservation message rubs off in our film. Every cent we earn from Crocodile Hunter goes straight back into conservation. Every single cent.
    Steve Irwin Quotes
  • You've seen the movie. That's fair dinkem, mate. They're fair dinkem crocs. There's no ifs, buts, whats or maybes. I bled a lot. I got hit across the face. We couldn't film for seven days. I got hit, whacked, underwater, across the face. I finished the shot, got into the boat and blood started coming out.
    Steve Irwin Quotes
  • Me and my wife, we sleep and live the wild life. That's all I do. Rescuing and educating people about wildlife, so I travel through our new movie just being me. I didn't' have to worry about the script. I didn't have to worry about the story. All I had to do was just go through the movie and instead of using video cameras, we had 35mm cameras shoot me and I just breezed on through it. However, that's just my world. There was another world, the world of CIA, spies, people trying to get me, satellites, intelligence and intrigue. You couldn't get any more action, adventure and fun.
    Steve Irwin Quotes
  • I'd go from film to film and almost detach from one world and jump in another. I was living as these people and not having a self. I didn't know who I was. And things just get really dark.
    Angelina Jolie Quotes
  • I don't know about my humour, but god, we have a good laugh when we hang out and the guys are funny and it's just contagious. I'm intimidated every day I go on the stage and everyday I go on a movie set. It's terrifying and I always want to reshoot the first day or the first week, I'm so terrified. Like I said earlier, when meeting them altogether for the first time, it's such a powerful force.
    Catherine Zeta-Jones Quotes
  • Poor Hollywood! These things happen all over the world but what a great backdrop to have Hollywood in our movie. No, but I know people who divorce a lot….and have really nice houses. But I didn't model the character on anyone in particular. And if I did, I would never tell the name.
    Catherine Zeta-Jones Quotes
  • I bet I'm hated by women around the world for having to kiss this guy. My husband would say to me: `What are you doing today honey' and I'd say `Oh, I'm kissing Brad on a bridge' The next day `Oh I'm kissing Brad in the car or someplace'. It was a tough job, but somebody had to do it. We had a lot of fun. I'd love to do another movie with him in a different connotation. Maybe a musical.
    Catherine Zeta-Jones Quotes
  • I'm doing a film now with a lot of guys as well, so at the end of that I will be growing a beard.
    Keira Knightley Quotes
  • The problem for me was that by being in the film the magic was broken. I loved the first Star Wars film and my mum was really into it too, that's why I took the part. But the Force wasn't there when we were filming it, and they didn't have real light sabres, which annoyed me.
    Keira Knightley Quotes
  • My mom stands a certain way and she has really good posture. So I took that from her. And whenever I slouch she goes over and she puts my back up straight. She'll probably notice that. ...My mom is a really cool mom. Jamie's character in the movie is very square and my mom is not very square. My mom is more like Jamie in real life.
    Lindsay Lohan Quotes
  • I think it’s a lot more interesting to watch a character go through a transition in a movie. You love her and then you almost want to not like her because she gets mean and gets ‘lost’ and everything.
    Lindsay Lohan Quotes
  • I used to think as I looked out on the Hollywood night, 'There must be thousands of girls sitting alone like me, dreaming of becoming a movie star. But I'm not going to worry about them. I'm dreaming the hardest.'
    Marilyn Monroe Quotes
  • The time I sort of began to think I was famous, I was driving somebody to the airport, and as I came back there was this movie house and I saw my name in lights. I pulled the car up at a distance down the street, it was too much to take up close, you know, all of a sudden. And I said, "God, somebody's made a mistake." But there it was, in lights. And I sat there and said, "So that's the way it looks," and it was all very strange to me, and yet at the studio they had said, "Remember you're not a star." Yet there it is up in lights.
    Marilyn Monroe Quotes
  • If one plays a rogue in an asking one film, in such a way one does not make clear in passing. Frightening in the review it is too to also only remember how it ran off. And the character, which I play, is a bad, bad boy. I mean, this type have problems - he is bad. But last end, who would not want to along-play in an asking one film?
    Cillian Murphy Quotes
  • Sometimes the darker stuff has greater potential for drama, it's always interesting to investigate things that you might come across in your own life. There's a lot of comedy in Intermission but it's got this depth. It's not comedy for comedy's sake - it's informed by something else. I like stuff like that.
    Cillian Murphy Quotes
  • Just watching movies when I was a kid- having a profound effect, and being amazed that a movie could profoundly affect you. I liked dramas, not really horrors or sci-fi. More just actors pieces, you know what I mean?
    Cillian Murphy Quotes
  • Very little of that's me. Very, very little. I thought the dialogue's great in it. I liked the way he spoke. He had a sense of irony, which you don't get in all American movies. I liked the levels within him, you know…
    Cillian Murphy Quotes
  • I didn't start acting until I was 20. I wanted to be a musician. I've been playing in bands for years and years and years. It was obviously the performance in me. I loved movies as a teenager, always loved, loved films, but I never thought I'd be involved, which was obviously an insane idea. It was theatre that was the main attraction to me, so I did a lot of theatre.
    Cillian Murphy Quotes
  • Even when I am filming, I’m thinking... ‘Oh my god am I going to be able to do this?’ I think, hopefully, the difference is that I’ve done a lot of different work before this film and I won’t be this girl forever.
    Naomi Watts Quotes
  • Sometimes they come to you and it's a small role, so it's about the experience and the journey and mixing with people you know you will learn from. Or sometimes it's a scene in a movie that you think, 'I just have to play this person.'
    Naomi Watts Quotes
  • In Australia and England we're very much influenced by the American culture. We've been watching American movies and listening to American music since we were teeny little kids.
    Naomi Watts Quotes
  • My spirit had been broken a bit over the years by my having to work on films I didn't love. Hollywood's a surreal place, and it really is an assault on your spirit.
    Naomi Watts Quotes
  • Everyone kind of talks about how great '70s' movies are and the wardrobe that we had, the feel; you kind of can see people's attraction to it. A lot of it was taking a look at old Starsky & Hutch episodes, because even though I'd grown up, that was one of the first cop shows that I was into.
    Owen Wilson Quotes
  • When you ask me the question I think of us being roommates in college and there is plenty for us to think about being fanatical about movies.
    Owen Wilson Quotes
  • It's funny how it usually works out that I end up dying. It sort of works out, because by the time I die, I'm usually tired of working on that particular movie, so I look forward to it." - about how a lot of his characters end up dying.
    Owen Wilson Quotes
  • I'm not going to be in a movie where people are being shot which eliminates almost all roles. I just won't do it. I don't believe in it and I believe that the imagery of films is very powerful, more powerful than people give it credit for being. And to say it's a reflection of society is a cop-out. So it's not what I choose to do because I can't justify it in terms of the way I lead my life.
