Quote: Colin Firth

Standard

bbe045caacc829e533f784814dfba3ce‘It used to be that I was always paranoid or a loser or something so there’s usually something that you seem to associate yourself with at one time or another.’

‘I would rather five people knew my work and thought it was good work than five million knew me and were indifferent.’

‘I absolutely don’t care about my looks and I’m so used to them that I wouldn’t change a thing. I would end up missing my defects.’

‘As much as the next person, I want to be approved of, but I’m not greedy for that stuff.’

‘I have a kind of neutrality, physically, which has helped me. I have a face that can be made to look a lot better – or a lot worse.’

‘Bridget Jones is part of literary lore now and actually to be a part of it is enormously flattering.’

‘I’m not patient, and some things drive me crazy. In my work, I get incredibly upset when people don’t get it right or don’t respect others’ needs.’

‘I work with the options I have in front of me and my reasons for choosing a job can vary enormously depending on the circumstances. Sometimes I take a job because it’s a group of people I’m dying to work with, and sometimes it can be a desire to shake things up a bit and not to take myself too seriously.’

Quote: Ricky Gervais

Standard

gervais‘You should make something. You should bring something into the world that wasn’t in the world before. It doesn’t matter what it is. It doesn’t matter if it’s a table or a film or gardening-everyone should create. You should do something, then sit back and say, ‘I did that.’’

‘Honour is a gift a man gives himself. You can be as good as anyone that ever lived. If you can read, you can learn everything that anyone ever learned. But you’ve got to want it.’

‘People confuse the subject of the joke with the target of the joke, and they’re very rarely the same.’

‘There’s no difference between fame and infamy now. There’s a new school of professional famous people that don’t do anything. They don’t create anything.’

Quote: Marilyn Monroe

Quote: Sandra Bullock

Standard

Sandra‘I’m a true believer in karma. You get what you give, whether it’s bad or good’.

‘I think most of us are raised with preconceived notions of the choices we’re supposed to make.

Quote: Russell Brand

Standard

Russell_Brand‘I recognize that I have the ability to be selfish, but I also recognize that you can’t be happy if you only care about yourself at the expense of other people.’

‘Everyone has their own mantra.’

Quote: Bill Murray

Standard

Bill ‘There’s only a couple times when fame is ever helpful. Sometimes you can get into a restaurant where the kitchen is just closing. Sometimes you can avoid a traffic violation. But the only time it really matters is in the emergency room with your kids. That’s when you want to be noticed, because it’s very easy to get forgotten in an ER’.

‘I always want to say to people who want to be rich and famous: ‘try being rich first’. See if that doesn’t cover most of it. There’s not much downside to being rich, other than paying taxes and having your relatives ask you for money. But when you become famous, you end up with a 24-hour job’.

‘The more relaxed you are, the better you are at everything: the better you are with your loved ones, the better you are with your enemies, the better you are at your job, the better you are with yourself’.

‘I don’t want to be that guy mumbling into his drink at a bar’.

‘Don’t think about your errors or failures; otherwise, you’ll never do a thing’.

‘I’ve never made any horrible, horrible movies. If you don’t ruin your reputation, you can always get work’.

‘But I can only take so much TV, because there is so much advice. I find people will preach about virtually anything – your diet, how to live your life, how to improve your golf. The lot. I have always had a thing against the Mister Know-It-Alls’.
