Interesting Facts

#Fact
1Samuel Pack Elliott was born in Sacramento, California, to Glynn Mamie (Sparks), a physical training instructor, and Henry Nelson Elliott, who worked for the Department of the Interior. His parents were both born in Texas. Sam is mainly of English, with some Scottish, descent.
2Inducted into the International Mustache Hall of Fame in 2015 (inaugural class) in the category Film & Television.
3Had three films that premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival: Digging for Fire (2015), Grandma (2015), and I'll See You in My Dreams (2015).
4Shares birthday with "Smokey Bear," and Sam Elliott has been the voice of "Smokey Bear" since 2008.
5In The Big Lebowski (1998), his strange cowboy character admonishes The Dude (played by Jeff Bridges) for using "cusswords." When recalling anecdotes for the book "I'm a Lebowski, You're a Lebowski: Life, The Big Lebowski, and What Have You" from that film, Elliott used by far the most profanities of any cast member.
6To date, he is the first (and only) actor to be nominated for an Emmy for guest-performing on Robot Chicken (2005).
7Fifth husband of Katharine Ross.
8Used his own Winchester 1894 rifle in Thank You for Smoking (2005).
9After portraying General Ross in Hulk (2003) he wanted to reprise the role in the reboot The Incredible Hulk (2008), but the part was given to William Hurt.
10Had not read any of the 'His Dark Materials' books before he was asked to take the role as Lee Scoresby in The Golden Compass (2007). He chose to first read the books by Philip Pullman, then read the film's script.
11His character in Hulk (2003), Gen. Ross, wore a combat patch for the 1st Cavalry Division. In We Were Soldiers (2002), he played Sgt. Maj. Plumley of the 7th Cavalry Regiment, part of the 1st Cav Div.
12For his role on Tombstone (1993), he worked with renowned Hollywood gun coach Thell Reed, who has also trained such actors as Val Kilmer, Kurt Russell, Bill Paxton, Girard Swan, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Russell Crowe.
13He is an alumnus of Clark College in Vancouver, Washington.
14Illness forced him to drop out of the 1982 TV movie The Ambush Murders (1982). He was replaced by James Brolin.
159/17/84: Daughter with Katharine Ross, Cleo Rose Elliott, born.
16In his book "Shirtless! The Hollywood Male Physique," Donald Reuter refers to Elliott as a "super bod" and gives him a full-page color photograph from his 1976 movie Lifeguard (1976).
17His bare-buns scene in The Legacy (1978) earned the highest rating (3 stars) from "The Bare Facts" -- a printed guide to nudity in movies.

Quotes

#Quote
1The Catholic church happened to The Golden Compass (2007), as far as I'm concerned. It did incredible at the box office. Incredible. It took $85m in the States. The Catholic church... lambasted them, and I think it scared New Line off.
2[on his Did You Hear About the Morgans? (2009) co-star Hugh Grant] I've never known anybody that can get away with the shit that Hugh Grant gets away with. And he gets away with it because he's so damn charming. He gets away with everything. I couldn't get away with the stuff he gets away with -- I mean I wouldn't even try! Hugh Grant is the main man. He's the number one romantic comedy man in the world.
3I'm picky, very picky. I wanted to be an actor since I was nine years old and I figured that was only one way to ever have any longevity and that's to be careful about what kind of work you do. You can work for money, do a lot of whatever comes your way and not have any kind of a yardstick to measure quality by, and people, you know you'll make a lot of money if you're lucky, and people will get fed up and sick of seeing you and that's it onto the next one. - On his career choices.
4I was really happy that Ang Lee won the Best Director award, I got to know him very well on Hulk (2003). But I'm not the Brokeback Mountain (2005) crowd, what can I tell ya. I'm more of a purist. But at the same time, it's a new day.
5I think I might have been a more interesting actor, had more of a career earlier on, if I had more formal preparation. When I see something ten years later that I was in I think, "Boy, would I love to do that over."
6I've spent my entire career on horseback or on a motorcycle. It boxes you in, the way people perceive you. I read a lot of scripts. Most of 'em go to other actors.
7in the December 1976 issue of "Playgirl"] I don't want to be known as a sex symbol. There's a great stigma that goes with that tag. I want to be a Sam Elliott.
