Quotes

#Quote
1Voting for Donald Trump is the equivalent of masturbating your way into Hell while supporting a guy who looks like a blonde magician.
2I think guns are not something to be missed. Especially, on a serious note, when we talk about it this week, this tragic thing that happened in Paris. I'd like to see more guns go to sculpture. I'd like to see it happen. I don't know that we've come to a time where we can be a gunless society, but we're certainly not working the way we're flying with them.
3[on decadence in Hollywood culture] I think you're talking about a human weakness that's pervasive in all cultures of business, whether it be Hollywood or others. They talk about the drug culture, for example, in Hollywood. I've never gone anywhere that I didn't see a similar drug culture. We look everywhere to try and make a darkened penny a shiny one, and you're going to have both in your pocket.
4In my teens, I fell in love with the movies. And so when I got involved I was a genius in terms of how the movies that were made in the generation that inspired me got made. But the financing wasn't there to do 'em anymore. Trauma. I'm caught in a business that I'm in love with the idea of - the whole process that's possible. Only now they're not making movies - they're representing them.
5I do think that, in general, the standard of aspiration is low. Very low. And mostly they're just doing a bunch of monkey-fuck-rat movies, most actors and actresses. And I blame them just as much as I do the business. I know everybody wants to make some money, everybody's got a modeling contract, everybody's selling jewelry and perfume. I'm blinded by it.
6[on Woody Allen] didn't ask to see or know anything [about my character] until he rolled the camera. His feeling is that the best, complete thing he's going to get is going to come out of the actor's instinct. And what he finds out on day one is whether or not he cast it well.
7(On Daniel Day-Lewis): He may very well be the greatest actor ever recorded to the screen.
8Let's face it. I'm a person that feels pretty alienated from the rest of the world and never felt understood by anyone.
9[backing Woody Harrelson for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar] The Messenger (2009) is one of those rare platforms for a familiar American actor to reinvent himself. Woody Harrelson conjures a heart and presence of previously untapped immensity and emotional power. He deserves a BIG nod. He's done the hardest thing an actor can do. He's made something new.
10[2008, on his love of road trips] I've been a road-rat since I got my drivers license at 16, so I've probably gone across America 20 times.
11[on how selections will be made while being the head jury member at Cannes in 2008] The best way to be honest is to try to emancipate ourselves from the effects of fashion, to try to find what will stay with us forever. We've got to do the opposite of the Academy that gives out the Oscars, where manipulation and very good marketing are rewarded.
12[on Clint Eastwood] He's one of the few legends who isn't a disappointment.
13[interview with Lynn Darling, 1991] The Madonna stuff just made it clear. After it was over, I could see what was left that I was in control of. I'm very fond of my ex-wife, but at 24, I didn't realize the difference between a great first date and a lifetime commitment.
14I don't like any directors. I don't get along with any of them. Mostly I think they're a bunch of whiny people without any point of view. So I don't want to be around them at six o'clock in the morning with make-up and bells on. And I'm probably the same way for the actors on my set - but that's their problem.
15With the Academy Awards, if you're standing there and looking out, you're not going to see many people who can find their butt with their hand.
16This might be the last thing anybody would see, but I'm probably shy. I've never gone to a party where I didn't drink alcohol. I have a great time, but I'm not comfortable. My straight nature is not very social. That doesn't mean I haven't caught myself being terribly arrogant.
17[on Madonna] I met her on the shoot of that video ["Material Girl"]. Madonna had done "Like a Virgin", so she was a phenom, but nothing could have told anybody what would happen next. I describe that marriage as loud. That's how I remember it. And frankly, I don't recall having a single conversation in four years of marriage. I've talked to her a couple of times since, and there's a whole person there. I just didn't know it.
18(on his role in The Assassination of Richard Nixon (2004)) It was the hardest thing I've ever done. My wife thinks it's the best. I don't call it my best, because either I've done something well or I haven't. I think I did this one well. I'd go back and fix some things in everything I've done. Usually, if I've done something really well, I'd only re-shoot half the film.
19I became an actor because of Robert De Niro.
20[on his marriage to Madonna] She was in the process of becoming the biggest star in the world. I just wanted to make my films and hide. I was an angry young man. I had a lot of demons and don't really know who could've lived with me at the time. I was just as badly behaved as her, so I can't point the finger of blame.
21[1999] Nic Cage [Nicolas Cage] is no longer an actor. He's more like a performer.
22If the primary statement of the film is that if you have good abs it's OK to kill people, I pass.
23There's an interesting parallel between Bush [George W. Bush] and Richard Nixon. While Nixon was clearly a superior statesman and in many ways a more intelligent politician, what they share is a kind of boldness in how they emote their insecurities. What we're finding with George Bush, part of what's familiar to people and that adds to his likability for many, is that there's a commonality of deep insecurity and his handling it with a kind of bravado. What they both did is handle things with a similar certainty - certainty being the "disease of kings".
24The bigger issue is that it's an absolutely stupid notion that you should take the title of someone's profession and attach it to what they should not do. It has nothing to do with citizenry.
25I don't consider myself specifically political, you know? I think of working as an actor as being a human thing. The concerns I have that fall into politics are human concerns.
26I've always operated under the notion that audiences don't always know when they're being lied to, but that they always know when they're being told the truth. If there are what I think are unsung truths to be talked about in a film, through a character, through a story, and that dominates the piece, that's the key for me. I think the biggest thing is to not participate in the damaging, lying cinema.
27The horror of the Academy Awards is what the press does leading up to it, to make it a popular TV show. Where they'll actually make it like it's an arm- wrestling event between two actors. That becomes very petty, and that's something that's embarrassing to follow up with accepting the invitation to the party.
28Your life is what you bring to any story. This is a life craft. It's "How do you feel? Who are you? What do you have to say?"
29I think it's really important to be able to feel your own life, and I had felt so numbed by what had been a kind of surreal saturation of what was going on in the Middle East and what it was going to mean, particularly relative to my kids' future and things like that.
30E.L. Doctorow had a quote I've used a lot of times, that the responsibility of the artist is to know the time in which he lives.
31The major studios are by and large banks and they give you what is by and large a loan to make a movie. Like banks, they want their money back plus.
32I was brought up in a country that relished fear-based religion, corrupt government and an entire white population living on stolen property that they murdered for and that is passed on from generation to generation.
33You build a cage based on your sense of the truth and your sense of the aspects of the character that need to tell the story. If you've done your job right, which I've had varying degrees of success doing at different times in my life, then you're able to function very freely within that cage.
34I can never get ahead of the game because of the movies I do.
35I had a house burn down once, and everything in life burned, except my family, and it was so liberating. I didn't have a bad moment about it. It sort of reinvigorated my interest in a lot of things. I wonder if there should be some kind of anarchy.
36Hollywood is much more creatively corrupt than it is economically [corrupt]. It takes $1 for them to kill their dreams. Their dreams are worth more than $1.
37[Discussing Oliver Stone] I think that his basic pig nature keeps him from doing the best of what he ought to do. And it keeps him from being someone I want to run into.
