It’s not that I lead this oblivious life where I think I’ve got such a great personality that people want to spend time with me. If someone has a poster of you or asks for your autograph, clearly you can’t take them out on a date. It’s not that interesting if someone is just interested in you.

It’s interesting because Swedes subtitle everything, so they’re so used to it. When my wife watches a show with subtitles, she has a skill to be able to watch and read. Whereas I’m more of a read or watch.

The most interesting guy I’ve ever played with was King Hassan of Morocco. I went over there on a trip in the early 1970s, and the King and I played five holes. I’ve never been that nervous in my life.

Typically in horror films the character just services the plot, and you really are just going from ‘point a’ to ‘point b,’ just so that you can end up at ‘point c.’ They are just sort of stick characters. That’s just not interesting to me.
Diversity is what makes life interesting.
I try to present something that is full of time. Not timeless, but full of time. I never like a work where we try to update it, but it’s still not interesting to see a work that is dated. If one is successful, then a work can be full of time. And time is very complex.

What I have found to be so interesting in my life and with my friends and family who have ‘normal jobs’ where they don’t play pretend for a living is that… Hollywood is absurd but very open about its absurdity.

Here’s something that’s interesting if you look at basic metrics or numbers in this country – 71% of African-American men: no dad at home. No disciplinarian. Fathers are often the louder voice, the disciplinarian. Many of those kids don’t grow up with a dad.

Do you want to be an actor, or do you want to be a celebrity? I made that decision when I went to Juilliard. I wanted to be an actor. So, if I get the opportunity to be an actor and do some cool, fun and interesting projects, I’m going to do that.
Now I feel I have an unspoken deal with the paparazzi: ‘I won’t do anything publicly interesting if you agree not to follow me.’
It was interesting doing impressions as somebody else doing impressions. Normally, I’ll do a voice, and it’s me doing the voice. To have to be Robin Williams doing the voice was an interesting sort of study in getting into somebody’s head.
I think of my parents as a single unit, and it’s interesting because they shared so much, and they were totally opposite. My mother, a Martha Graham dancer, had a classical background; my father had a back-porch background.

I’m just focused on getting to the end of each show and feeling like we’ve done a good job when we walk off stage. And a perfect show isn’t necessarily about making the audience feel good. I know I’ve done my job well if I’ve made people feel… interesting. I like to leave them a little stunned.
If you want an interesting party sometime, combine cocktails and a fresh box of crayons for everyone.
Chinatown is tremendously interesting… It’s a part of the city that hasn’t really been explored in crime literature or in any general literature. It’s as though Chinatown didn’t exist. People write about New York without mentioning Chinatown at all.
Japan’s very interesting. Some people think it copies things. I don’t think that anymore. I think what they do is reinvent things. They will get something that’s already been invented and study it until they thoroughly understand it. In some cases, they understand it better than the original inventor.
It’s been an interesting life. I feel like I’m 40 years old at the age of 16.

I’m always looking for films, but the horror scripts that I get tend to be very repetitive and often not that interesting.
What makes literature interesting is that it does not survive its translation. The characters in a novel are made out of the sentences. That’s what their substance is.

Definitely, some of the artistry and poetry has been lost in modern chess. It’s very rare that I play a game where I’m like, ‘Wow, this is really interesting. There were so many possibilities! It was such a rich game.’
The interesting part of my spiritual life is studying as much as you can. Islam and Buddhism and Hinduism and Shamanism and Judaism, Christianity – you try to learn what the precepts are, what the religion is, and ultimately, it’s based in the same thought, it’s based in the same outcome, you know.
So anyway, I’ve learned a lot about myself just in terms of acting but just work ethic and interesting things like full-page monologues or talking straight into camera, which I had never gotten to do before.

I have dogs, and it’s no secret that I find reptiles interesting, but the thing about reptiles is that they really just wanna be left alone, and I understand them. It’s, ‘Don’t pick me up, stop holding me, don’t look at me, just leave me alone.’ I have to admit, sometimes I feel like that.

To be able to communicate with people on the other side of the globe is interesting, in an instant.

Pride is not the worst of sins. In fact, it’s one of the most interesting ones.

A lot of people look back ten years ago and go, ‘Why was I wearing that?’ I look back a year ago and say the same thing. The craziest outfit I ever wore was this white suit that I wore to an awards show in L.A. that I teamed with yellow shoes. It was interesting. It popped.
The genres of the fantastic and the grotesque are far more interesting to me than most mnemonic fiction.
Mr. Philippe Zdar is a little bit like the uncle of the whole Daft Punk-Phoenix-Air thing in Paris and known for being in the group Cassius. It was interesting working with Philippe.
I always think part of success is being able to replicate results, taking what is interesting or viable about yourself as a professional person and seeing if you bring it into different situations with similar results.
I have so much satisfaction in my life. I have a beautiful wife and the great stimulation of an interesting career. I’m the most happy fellow that I know.
I did Kyoto and traveled through some of Japan, solo. That was a really interesting experience. I felt very safe there as a female solo traveler, and I think you always need to be conscious of that.
I don’t like to know exactly what I’m going to do in a scene, because the most interesting moments as an audience member are moments of truthful spontaneity.
‘Be in’ is all about passion. Life is short. There are so many interesting things we can do in our life, and I feel like if someone is just kind of showing up, it’s not worth it for them or for us.
What is interesting is the power and the impact of social media… So we must try to use social media in a good way.
Lynch is not as strange as his films. He’s a complex guy with a very interesting view of the world. But he’s very accessible, with a good heart.
My favourite kind of comedy comes from the awkwardness of living, the stuff that makes you cringe but borders on tragic – that is more interesting to me. It resonates; it comes from emotional truth.
The Beatles, they brought a whole new dimension to pop music. Of course, the psychedelic period is much more interesting to me, starting with ‘Rubber Soul’ and on to the ‘White Album.’ Great, great records. I was such a Beatles fan. I was very sad when they broke up.
One of the most interesting social trends of the past 20 years is the rise of residential segregation. So rich are living with rich and poor are living with poor.
I think it’s healthy to have a lot of different styles within a genre. It makes it much more interesting.
My job, and that’s my job, is to dress the naked truth. To make it interesting, to make it viable, to make it seem like something you understand and feel and love.
I thought ‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind’ was so interesting the way it was made and the texture of it.
It’s very interesting, the joke comes first and then the wording comes within five seconds, maybe ten seconds. My thing is to get the joke across in as few words as possible. However, sometimes a word that’s not really needed does help the rhythm of it. It’s a gut feeling.
What is more important is finding the soul of the character, and making sure it fits well into this story. And that it be dramatic and interesting and captivating, because these people weren’t entertainers, you know.
We lived in Northern Quebec, and the nearest school was thirty miles away, so my mother took on the task of home schooling me. She spoke to some friends, received some instructions from the provincial school board, and found some interesting books that perhaps I might find useful.
In a fragile environment, we need to be aware of ourselves as members of a uniquely powerful species living among other species who are quite as interesting as we are but vulnerable to us because we are cleverer in more destructive ways.
For all its deranging effects, I am always grateful to Twitter for the interesting ideas it surfaces.
‘The River Wild’ was great, with Meryl Streep. That guy was really a bad dude who was ultimately sort of fundamentally impotent in a weird way. That was kind of interesting.
I enjoy it; my experiences abroad have taught me the importance of an open mind and have given me a willingness to wander off the beaten path – not only to keep life interesting, but also to understand in a meaningful way that things do not look the same from every vantage point.
Nuclear physics is interesting but it is unlikely to help society.
Christopher Hitchens’s autobiography, ‘Hitch 22’, is a poignant read and very interesting because I have a very poor knowledge of recent political history – or, for that matter, distant political history.
It’s interesting that Swiss banks also hide their assets from the Swiss by using offshore bank structuring.
That’s quite a difficult thing in life, to be who you are. And when you are doing interviews, you kind of feel this need to say something interesting.
If your dream is to tell stories, interesting stories, play interesting people, that’s the bottom line. The people that I play have to be extraordinary.
People become more interesting from about 25 – they develop character and their personalities come out.
I think my work has become more interesting, well to me anyway.
At every stage of my career I have had interesting and cordial colleagues, some of whom are close friends.
I think a leader has many roles to play. So, you know, one role is that of incubating talent; the other is that of being a strategist. It’s a very interesting job I’ve got.
I don’t say I create. I copy, of course. I’ve never been interested in the point of view of the tailor or creator. Fashion is a visual impression. This is why I often refuse the name of fashion designer. It’s a superficial, stupid job. The social-psychological aspect is more interesting.
A lot of the interesting issues and dynamics within a city occur over things such as socio-economic issues or ethnic issues. But they require a much more elaborate model of human behavior.
It’s so interesting how you can take a bad situation and make a great song out of it that somebody else can listen to and have a completely different perspective of the song and have their own meaning. That’s what’s great about it.
I did an episode on the TV show ‘Awake,’ and I thought, ‘Wow, that’s really hard.’ To do that so fast and to do that, if it’s very successful, for nine months out of the year, for a bunch of good years, that’s challenging. But, it was interesting. It’s a good show. You’d have to have a very good character, I guess.
Plunge boldly into the thick of life, and seize it where you will, it is always interesting.
It’s good for Brazilian football to have idols, stars, big stars coming back to Brazilian clubs. The tournaments become much better, more interesting. Ze Roberto, Juninho Pernambucano, Ronaldinho Gaucho, and other players who have returned to Brazil strengthen the league and improve the tournaments.
If you have a Falcon Heavy, and you have a Dragon, and you have a Bigelow module, then all of a sudden, life gets interesting.
Everyone’s had an interesting life. Unless they’re interested in business or something.
I am fascinated with religion or things that people believe in and question that. I think it’s interesting.
I’m game for any kind of roles as long as I find it interesting.
Any sort of major change we want to make in our life is hard. Change is not easy and true change takes time and takes thousands, millions probably, of failures along that path and that’s the interesting thing.
There are all these interesting rules about asteroid nomenclature. Once you discover it, you have the right to name it, but there’s a catch.
I think that water is immediately interesting. It’s just, as an element, it is full of life. It is associated with origin; it is bright – it reflects you.
I was so intent on trying to find a movie about an interesting life, but I wasn’t living an interesting life myself.
I find the science behind major natural events almost more interesting than the way in which those same events wreak their effects on human society.
Rap has so many possibilities that need to be explored. There are different factions of rap, but some are in a rut. Rap doesn’t have to be about boosting egos and grabbing your crotch and dissing women. There’s a way to make political and social issues interesting and entertaining to the young rap audience.
I like an interesting movie even if it’s controversial or offensive, depending on your taste.
I always find beauty in things that are odd and imperfect – they are much more interesting.
When I’m in certain moods, a conversation will start up in my head, and suddenly I’ll realize that the language has reached a very high and interesting level, and then lines and stanzas will just kind of appear, full-blown.
A safe but sometimes chilly way of recalling the past is to force open a crammed drawer. If you are searching for anything in particular you don’t find it, but something falls out at the back that is often more interesting.
Every man has his follies – and often they are the most interesting thing he has got.
Whenever I write anything, I do sing to it, to try and make sure it’s interesting or compelling to sing to. I’ve gotten in the habit of sharing that with other, more charismatic vocalists.
Dystopia is a very interesting setting. Whether it’s ‘1984’ or ‘Fahrenheit 451’… Dystopia is a wonderfully cinematic setting.
I would love to do anything from a really gritty, interesting, indie type film, to that commercial, bigger stuff.
It was a really interesting thing to explore, the strength it takes for someone to stay when they truly do not want to be on this Earth anymore.
The shirt thing just started one day when I bought one with a really interesting pattern, and people laughed at it, so I thought, ‘I’ll keep buying daft shirts with flowers on.’
Life is funny and it is interesting how we make it as serious as possible.
In my real life, I’m a Black Lives Matter social justice activist, and so it was incredibly interesting to me to play somebody coming from the totally opposite side, whose beliefs are as deeply entrenched – as deeply felt, and given as much gravity, as I give my beliefs.
I aspire to play interesting characters.
I understand entertaining. You want people to walk out saying, ‘I spent a night with interesting people.’
I’m not a scientist. What I find interesting about my work is how, as a designer, I sit between science and the consumer and can see both a need and a solution.
It’s not very interesting to establish sympathy for people who, on the surface, are instantly sympathetic. I guess I’m always attracted to people who, if their lives were headlines in a newspaper, you might not be very sympathetic about them.
Literature gives us a window into other people’s experiences in other places, in other times, so I thought it would be really interesting to investigate how different people had written about motherhood, and childhood.
Very interesting for an old duffer like me to try his hand at something new. If I don’t do that once in a while, I might just turn into a fossil, you know!
When the NBA adopted their uniform that they had to wear, I thought that was very interesting. And you see the way NBA players dress: It’s very cool.
One of the many interesting and surprising experiences of the beginner in child analysis is to find in even very young children a capacity for insight which is often far greater than that of adults.
A woman who is willing to be herself and pursue her own potential runs not so much the risk of loneliness, as the challenge of exposure to more interesting men – and people in general.
The book was at a reasonably high position on the New York Times… before I was in the country. I thought it would be an interesting experiment to see if my presence here would push it up or down.
Our users were one step ahead of us. They began using YouTube to share videos of all kinds. Their dogs, vacations, anything. We found this very interesting. We said, ‘Why not let the users define what YouTube is all about?’
I’m always looking, as an actor, for activities. I think it’s far more interesting to watch what people do than what they say. You always want to watch behavior, because the dialogue as written by our illustrious leaders is great. Eminently playable.
The most interesting thing in the world is another human being who wonders, suffers and raises the questions that have bothered him to the last day of his life, knowing he will never get the answers.
Watching people just look out for themselves, I think, is extremely interesting. It goes right back to something like ‘The Beggar’s Opera’ – the underbelly of society, how it operates, and how that reflects their so-called betters.
When you combine ignorance and leverage, you get some pretty interesting results.
High school was interesting. For a lot of people, high school was just a big social experiment, and I think the value of high school was not so much learning how to be a great student… but I think it’s learning how to interact with people and be social. I would say that in that endeavor, I completely failed.
I love acting. It’s an interesting challenge to make something that doesn’t exist appear like it’s happening, and to do it in a real way.
Of the various branches of electrical investigation, perhaps the most interesting and immediately the most promising is that dealing with alternating currents.
Screwing things up is a virtue. Being correct is never the point. I have an almost fanatically correct assistant, and by the time she re-spells my words and corrects my punctuation, I can’t read what I wrote. Being right can stop all the momentum of a very interesting idea.
When I was making ‘Star Wars,’ I wasn’t restrained by any kind of science. I simply said, ‘I’m going to create a world that’s fun and interesting, makes sense, and seems to have a reality to it.’
Your life is your canvas, and you are the masterpiece. There are a million ways to be kind, amazing, fabulous, creative, bold, and interesting.
Twitter is a really interesting, useful tool. In lots of ways, it’s an exciting place to be. But it’s also a megaphone for the kinds of things people used to shout at their telly – and now they send you a message.
‘Quick Change’ was my first real movie. It was an interesting audition process because there were no lines in the script. Bill Murray’s character would say something, and Geena Davis and Randy Quaid would say something, and then it would just say, ‘The cabbie speaks.’ How do you audition for that?
I personally believe that the iPod is a frankly corrosive device because it encourages you to surround yourself with your favorites. The whole idea of a playlist is to surround yourself with your favorite things, and the interesting thing is that when you do that, they cease to be your favorites.
I don’t know if I should care for a man who made life easy; I should want someone who made it interesting.
For me, personality acting is not that interesting. I don’t want to just be myself.
I thought there was something inherently interesting in people turning to gold. It’s pretty cool.
If it’s not some daring, dangerous affair, it’s just not interesting, or so it seems. So, here you have two people – a famous American iconic couple – who actually like each other sexually, in marriage. Imagine.
Human emotion is more interesting than anything. Everything that is so overtly sexual is not real. Real emotion is sexy. It’s vulnerable and raw.
Evolution is fascinating to watch. To me it is the most interesting when one can observe the evolution of a single man.
I like to think that I have no single view nor any single situation that I think things arrive from. I try to give examples of what I think are interesting questions for me.
A large fraction of the most interesting scientists have read a lot of SF at one time or another, either early enough that it may have played a part in their becoming scientists or at some later date just because they liked the ideas.
I want to do interesting work, I don’t want to get boxed. A box is fruitful for a little while and then you get replaced.
There are similarities between being an editor and a tailor. Tailors have a vast supply of fabrics, buttons and thread at their disposal and put it together to make a whole. That’s what an editor does – looks at society at a given time and pulls together the interesting aspects into a single issue each month.
Things that are interesting, people will pass around the Internet, around the world. And the blogosphere is only the tip of the iceberg.
Decorate your home. It gives the illusion that your life is more interesting than it really is.
As for me, it is interesting to play a role that is not human; it is nice to be all powerful without fancy action scenes. But, it is not funny to play God, even on film. You don’t speak much and just smile beatifically.
What is it about royalty – even if you’re a confirmed republican – that is dramatically interesting?
One thing I wish I could tell my younger self: take photos of everyday life, not special occasions; later, that’s what will be interesting to you.
The mindset that I have on every project I take on is, ‘How do I make this interesting enough for me to want to stop and look at it?’ So in that regard, what I do behind the camera, whether it’s still or motion picture, is the same.
I have more interesting things to post on social media, now that I’m going to Venice and stuff like that, instead of, you know, going to school and sitting on my couch.
I don’t want to limit myself to a genre, language or a particular industry. I will do anything interesting that comes to me.
Museums are interesting. This place where we’re almost buying admission to take a break from our lives.
To whom, then, must I dedicate my wonderful, surprising and interesting adventures? to whom dare I reveal my private opinion of my nearest relations? the secret thoughts of my dearest friends? my own hopes, fears, reflections and dislikes? Nobody!
One of my favorite movies of all time is ‘It’s A Wonderful Life,’ which is a pretty interesting choice for a seasonal Christmas favorite, because it’s about a guy who wants to commit suicide and is presented with reasons not to.
I used to smoke two packs a day and I just hate being a nonsmoker… but I will never consider myself a nonsmoker because I always find smokers the most interesting people at the table.
The reason that fiction is more interesting than any other form of literature, to those who really like to study people, is that in fiction the author can really tell the truth without humiliating himself.
I was a grad student at UC Berkeley when I bought my Apple II and it suddenly because a lot more interesting than school.
This isn’t meant to make me sound interesting and rock ‘n’ roll, but I wouldn’t want to live with me a lot of the time.
The interesting thing about doing a play is to find a way to make it fresh and do it as though you were doing it for the first time.
I’ve never played a gay character on screen, so that would be interesting. I’ve never played a gay character, and that would fascinate me because I’m not gay, so that would interest me.
Biochemistry is the science of life. All our life processes – walking, talking, moving, feeding – are essentially chemical reactions. So biochemistry is actually the chemistry of life, and it’s supremely interesting.
Life is very interesting… in the end, some of your greatest pains, become your greatest strengths.
From early morning to late at night, it’s such an interesting life, and I’m healthy and free, and that’s not so easy with a family.
I read somewhere that your voice towards your children becomes their inner monologue. That was so interesting to me, and I think that pertains to ‘Better Things’ as well.
Give me something interesting to play and I’m happy.
All I ever wanted to do was to do something interesting.
My mother – it’s not one of those waxing-poetic kind of things – she literally worked two or three jobs most of her life. So I personally experienced that, even though I had these great friends and associations who had unlimited amounts of money. That juxtaposition was an interesting one.
There’s nothing more interesting than the landscape of the human face.
What I know most is that the difference between us is what makes us interesting and attractive and problematic and exciting and vital to each other. Give me difference over indifference any day.
In America, people really struggle with my name, so I don’t have a nickname as such. I’ve had Sharlito, Sheldon, Charldo, really interesting variations on the name. Some of them can get it, but many can’t.
The Bachelor’s’ a very interesting thing, you can’t fake your way through it.
I wanted to live the life, a different life. I didn’t want to go to the same place every day and see the same people and do the same job. I wanted interesting challenges.
There’s something distinct and interesting about a live performance. There’s this weird immediacy that’s, for me, really invigorating, and it just feels really rewarding.
Few people in contemporary art demonstrate much curiosity. The majority spend their days blathering on, rather than trying to work out why one artist is more interesting than another, or why one picture works and another doesn’t.
I think of it as a good opportunity to let, in particular, school kids know that this job and other interesting jobs in science and engineering are open to anyone who works hard in school and gets a good education and studies math and science. And that it’s not just for a select group of people.
It was interesting to shoot history as it happens, without anyone demanding a huge story.
Birds themselves are so interesting and intelligent, and they give so many cues without being verbal, so they say such great things. Feathers are superior to fur, even. They’re so beautiful, and nature uses such amazing colors.
I figure it could become a self-fulfilling prophecy; if I make a successful arena rock record, I’ll wind up playing arenas! I wouldn’t mind being back in that kind of venue because of the kinds of things you can do with production. You can make your shows more interesting, which would be fun to do.
I go back and forth, but I never wanted to be the photographer of the gay and lesbian community. I will wave a rainbow flag proudly, but I am not a singular identity. I think a singular identity isn’t very interesting, and I’m a little bit more multifaceted as a person than that.
To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.
Values-based business behavior is no longer simply an interesting option – it’s crucial to your survival. Once you understand your mission and values, you have a strong basis for evaluating your practices and aligning them accordingly.
I was getting frustrated with America. It’s interesting how as simple a thing as, like, letting your hair grow longer changed in the world in those days.
Teachers need to be more inspirational. But it’s also up to engineering to make itself more interesting.
Red is such an interesting color to correlate with emotion, because it’s on both ends of the spectrum. On one end you have happiness, falling in love, infatuation with someone, passion, all that. On the other end, you’ve got obsession, jealousy, danger, fear, anger and frustration.
It’s really interesting with scripts, because you never really know. It’s paper and it could be great or awful. Even scripts that are good could end up not working.
For me, it’s not necessarily interesting to play a strong, fearless woman. It’s interesting to play a woman who is terrified and then overcomes that fear. It’s about the journey. Courage is not the absence of fear, it’s overcoming it.
In heaven, all the interesting people are missing.
I wish I looked more like my mother, but I think I look like my father. I wish I had one of those naturally beautiful faces. Or a more quirky face. I’m right down the middle: not interesting enough, not pretty enough.
The interesting thing about ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ is that everything that happens in it has happened or is happening somewhere in the world.
America is rather like life. You can usually find in it what you look for. It will probably be interesting, and it is sure to be large.
I love that I’m a character actress and get to do so many different and interesting roles. There’s really no reason that I can’t continue on forever, because I’ve never been typecast as one thing.
Brazilian music has many of the ingredients that I strive for in my own music: Strong melodies and a disciplined but intense rhythmic concept, and interesting harmonies.
When I got a call from Hansal Mehta, the CEO of White Feathers, asking me to come for one of their films, I was very happy. I thought they’d have an interesting role for me. But when I got to know they just wanted me to stand in for Sanjay Dutt for some scenes, I decided to give this offer the pass.
Twitter and Facebook are brilliant tools, the journalistic uses of which are still being plumbed. They are great for disseminating interesting material. They are useful for gathering information, including from places that are inaccessible.
The Seventies were an interesting time to be a reader or writer of fantasy. Tolkien was the great master. Lin Carter was resurrecting wonders of British and American fantasy from the early twentieth century in his Ballantine Adult Fantasy Series.
Religion, in any form, is always interesting to me because of how powerful it is. Not even the religion itself, but to the people that follow it… The effect that it has had on people’s minds.
I want to present interesting stories that don’t qualify themselves just by virtue of their ethnographic type.
It’s interesting – years ago, I had such bad stage fright during musical theater auditions that I just gave up. And now I’m on Broadway.
For me, the most interesting people are ones who often work against their best interests. Bad choices. They go in directions where you go, ‘No no no nooo!’ You push away someone who is trying to love you, you hurt someone who’s trying to get your trust, or you love someone you shouldn’t.
Revenge is a particularly interesting concept, especially the notion of whether or not it exists outside of just an abstract idea.
Typecasting is an interesting thing because, in a way, if you’re good at something, you’re going to work at that thing. In other ways, you constantly have to change people’s opinion of you as one thing, especially if you want to play different roles. You have to shatter that image sometimes.
Although I don’t know Oslo at all, there is something about the feel or the smell of the place that feels like home, which is quite interesting.
It’s interesting to think about the different forms one place can take.
If you’re bored, it’s because someone else is fulfilling his dream. Become a bore. It’s the most interesting thing you’ll ever do.
It’s the things that you notice when you’re not actually with your instrument that, in fact, become so interesting, and that you – you want to explore, through this tiny tiny surface of a drum.
The interesting thing about being a mother is that everyone wants pets, but no one but me cleans the kitty litter.
As a Western, ‘The Magnificent Seven’ was a pretty good film. I don’t think it was as interesting or as multi-faceted as ‘Seven Samurai.’
The fact of the Watergate cover-up is not nearly as interesting as the step into making the cover-up. And when you understand the step, you understand that Richard Nixon lied. That he was a criminal.
I find that the only way to make my characters really interesting to children is to exaggerate all their good or bad qualities, and so if a person is nasty or bad or cruel, you make them very nasty, very bad, very cruel. If they are ugly, you make them extremely ugly. That, I think, is fun and makes an impact.
Literature is one of the most interesting and significant expressions of humanity.
The ultimate goal is to be an interesting, useful, wholesome person. If you’re successful on top of that, then you’re way ahead of everybody.
A man’s face as a rule says more, and more interesting things, than his mouth, for it is a compendium of everything his mouth will ever say, in that it is the monogram of all this man’s thoughts and aspirations.
I’m interested in good collaborations and in working with directors who bring something new and interesting out of you.
I think one of the interesting things about poker is that once you let your ego in, you’re done for.
I didn’t realize how interesting the place I come from is until I left home and saw how other cultures handled things differently.
I think that London is very much like that. I find there’s humour in the air and people are interesting. And I think that it’s a place which is constantly surprising. The worst thing about it? I think it can be smug and aggressive.
The mixture of weird textures and organic surfaces creates an interesting dialogue.
One of the most interesting female characters I’ve written about was Meg Riddoch, the lead character in ‘The Thompson Gunner’.
We will not have humanoid androids. It’s interesting: when you start trying to make robots look more human, you end up making them look more grotesque. It takes very little to go from super-attractive robot to hideous robot.
The interesting thing about cloud computing is that we’ve redefined cloud computing to include everything that we already do.
I have dealt with a pretty interesting mix of young people, many of whom have never been involved in any form of politics at any level who are interested in alternatives to austerity and debt, and older people who left the Labour party, mainly over Iraq, who are coming back in.
Psychic, illusionist… I’m just doing the things that I find interesting and worthwhile.
It would have been an interesting run if we hadn’t gotten along! It was good casting, I suppose.
When I was doing theater for all those years in New York, I did a lot of classical theater, wearing big corsets and big dresses and doing dialects. It’s interesting that once I moved to TV, I’m playing these scrappy, contemporary toughies.
All my close friends are non-conformist. To say ‘misfits’ sounds bad, but there is something positive about being a little on the outside – it gives you an interesting perspective on things – and I think that’s something Robyn and I share.
I had a very, very interesting childhood, but, oh my, education was the primary focus in our family.
Zoology has always been interesting to me. Nature is fascinating.
Play difficult and interesting things. If you play boring things, you risk losing your appetite. Saxophone can be tedious with too much of the same.
The interesting thing about fiction from a writer’s standpoint is that the characters come to life within you. And yet who are they and where are they? They seem to have as much or more vitality and complexity as the people around you.
I love Rome and the way that you can wander around and find something interesting around every street corner. You can smell the history.
We need to be held to a higher standard because digital currency is so new and interesting and powerful that it is attractive to a lot of people out there to try to steal it.
It’s very interesting, the dynamics of popularity. When you do something all the time, you don’t worry about whether it’s trendy or not.
I’ve always said it’s interesting to watch devils cry when angels want to stab you in the back. I like that mixture.
Perfect isn’t normal, nor is it interesting. I have no features without makeup. I am pale. I have blond lashes. You could just paint my face – it’s like a blank canvas. It can be great for what I do.
Rick Rubin is interesting. He doesn’t wear shoes, I think? No wait, he wears shoes.
Don’t worry about writing a book or getting famous or making money. Just lead an interesting life.
It’s interesting how people are sensitive to language and how it works.
Visually, a lot of the electronic artists have really interesting video and interesting things like that.
Be interesting, be enthusiastic… and don’t talk too much.
It’s always interesting exploring something that has dimensions and layers to it.
I really wanted to be a model when I was little. I loved photography, and I loved being on camera. But I was short and chubby, so I couldn’t. Anyway, being an artist is way more interesting than just being a model because it’s about you and what you want to be. You’re not being treated like a clothes hanger.
I was not really aware of the dystopian genre before I read ‘The Handmaid’s Tale.’ Many poets as well, like John Donne and Emily Dickinson, would be the influences; I specialized in Emily Dickinson at university. Both of those poets have really interesting ways of looking at life and death.
And I haven’t read a lot of blogs but if someone writes about what they care about I’m sure it’s interesting.
It’s interesting. People go to an animal shelter and pick a dog that’s been kicked, beaten, and has lost a leg and an eye, and they’ll take that dog home and give it love and support, but they don’t do that with people.
For me, it’s always more interesting to look at things when you don’t really have a horse in the race, so to speak.
My father once said, ‘If you’re in the desert and you’re dying of thirst, are you going to drink a glass of blood or are you going to drink a glass of water?’ I think what he was trying to say, interesting coming from my blood father, is sometimes there are people in your family that can be toxic.
‘The Walking Dead’ and ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ have pumped up the recognition factor a thousand times. I can’t get off an airplane anymore. I don’t know how the hell they know and how these people find out. They must have some interesting, secret way of getting a hold of the flight manifesto or something.
I don’t think human beings learn anything without desperation. Desperation is a necessary ingredient to learning anything or creating anything. Period. If you ain’t desperate at some point, you ain’t interesting.
I was perfectly content before I was born, and I think of death as the same state. What I am grateful for is the gift of intelligence, and for life, love, wonder, and laughter. You can’t say it wasn’t interesting. My lifetime’s memories are what I have brought home from the trip.
I think, on the rap side of life, I’ve always been inspired by and respected Missy Elliott for a long time. She’s funny and created an image for herself that was non-sexualized but was really interesting and really cool and really kind of avant-garde in a lot of ways.
The drawings in ‘Portal’ were actually me scribbling that stuff… I had a funny moment when I realized that someone gotten ‘The cake is a lie’ tattooed on themselves. It was really interesting to see my handwriting tattooed on another human being. That… that’s odd.
To boast of a performance which I cannot beat is merely stupid vanity. And if I can beat it that means there is nothing special about it. What has passed is already finished with. What I find more interesting is what is still to come.
Fashion photography should say something about the stability of a certain time you live in or what kind of women you like. The most interesting thing is not what they’re wearing but who they are.
My job is that of an actor. As long as I get to act, get some interesting parts to play, get to be a part of interesting stories, I would certainly want to do it.
I wanted to play a mother again. I thought it would be interesting to play the mother of an older child. And it was also the kind of part I’ve been looking for my whole career, actually, in film. You know, just to play a femme fatale who’s very smart, and wicked.
It’s interesting trying to make something as truthful as possible, but playing someone who is still alive is quite a weird thing.
Every weird thing about you is beautiful and makes life interesting.
I know there’s a CSI game. I’ve never seen it, though, so I’m not really sure. I hope it’s interesting. I hope that they’ve done a good job making it, but because I’ve never seen it, the jury is still out on whether it’s interesting or not. But it is funny to imagine that it’s been turned into a game.
I think it’s interesting to me to talk to people who don’t agree with me all the time.
I find people interesting. People trying hard are interesting. People with a passion are interesting – whether it’s old cars or taxidermy or knitting.
It feels kinda weird being back in a high school cause I haven’t been in a high school for about a year. So um, it’s kinda interesting coming back, and y’know seeing the lockers, with all the signs, the handmade signs, so being in high school again is a little bit strange but in a good way.
What I find most interesting about the U.S. is this idea of equality. That’s what I’m trying to do with immigration. If what the founding fathers said is true, that we are all equal, then let’s fight for that.
The interesting thing about grief, I think, is that it is its own size. It is not the size of you. It is its own size. And grief comes to you.
People think that what I see diving must drive what I put into films, but that isn’t really the case. When I am making a Hollywood production, I am telling a different kind of story. Of course, if I see something interesting that works, we will look at it, but they are different things.
We’ve committed many war crimes in Vietnam – but I’ll tell you something interesting about that. We were committing war crimes in World War II, before the Nuremberg trials were held and the principle of war crimes was stated.
What I find most interesting about acting is transforming myself.
In boxing, Mike Tyson fascinates me. The attitude and confidence that he could not be beaten when he was heavyweight champion of the world was interesting. He came across as very mild-mannered, and much of what he said made sense.
When you keep things responsible and manageable, you can make some interesting movies that you maybe couldn’t make otherwise.
Someone once told me be interested, not interesting – that really clicked for me.
Curious people are interesting people; I wonder why that is.
I gave up my struggle with perfection a long time ago. That is a concept I don’t find very interesting anymore. Everyone just wants to look good in the photographs. I think that is where some of the pressure comes from. Be happy. Be yourself, the day is about a lot more.
I think what is interesting in life is all the cracks and all the flaws and all the moments that are not perfect.
Evanescence fans aren’t the popular kids in school. They aren’t the cheerleaders. It’s the art kids and the nerds and the kids who grow up to be the most interesting creative people.
Develop an interest in life as you see it; the people, things, literature, music – the world is so rich, simply throbbing with rich treasures, beautiful souls and interesting people. Forget yourself.
A woman called me interesting once, and it kind of blew my mind. She said, ‘You’re one of the most interesting people I’ve ever met,’ and I was like, ‘Wow.’
When there’s no one you can point to, or when something goes wrong, it’s your fault – that level of responsibility and accountability is pretty interesting.
All writers are going to have to learn more about science, because it’s such an interesting part of their environment.
I think you can always find interesting, complex and fascinating characters to play in different kinds of movies. It’s in your hands.
I began to feel that the drama of the truth that is in the moment and in the past is richer and more interesting than the drama of Hollywood movies. So I began looking at documentary films.
Ellis Peters’s historical detail is very accurate and very minute, and therefore is not only interesting to read but good for an actor to acquire a sense of the period. And the other thing I think is that an actor lives in the land of imagination.
When you’re curious, you find lots of interesting things to do.
It’s always an interesting sort of adventures that gets someone into a movie.
I ate some really amazing food in Thailand. I had river turtle, and dried rat, which was quite chewy and interesting and a bit like biltong.
Games have gotten so big and interesting that they’ve moved beyond the toy/entertainment space. It’s not just a diversion from their regular lives; for a lot of people, it becomes an important part of their lives.
Building is just skilled labor, I suppose. It’s a lot of work. I don’t mind other people building them, but the way things go together and are made is interesting to me; I like that a lot.
I suppose I would still prefer to sit under a tree with a picnic basket rather than under a gas pump, but signs and comic strips are interesting as subject matter.
It’ll be interesting to raise kids in New York City. I’m from suburbia, so I don’t really have any experience with what it’s going to be like here.
Something that’s interesting is how my perspective on different events can change over time even though the events themselves haven’t changed. As I get older, I interpret something differently, or I can even interpret a person differently.
Trying to learn to be a good man is like learning to play tennis against a wall. You are only a good man – a competent, capable, interesting and lovable man – when you’re doing it for, or with, other people.
It seemed to me that this might be a great pageant, which would give a chance for a very interesting picture.
It’s a different world: when I’m writing ‘Toast,’ I’ve got one foot in 1974 and one foot in the modern day, because the modern day is nowhere near as funny or interesting.
It is interesting to come across people who feel that a ghost communicating via a spell-checker is less far-fetched than a software glitch.
We still don’t know what evolutionary significance to attach to it, but it is at the very least interesting that a telomere gene is related to obesity.
Given a choice between their worldview and the facts, it’s always interesting how many people toss the facts.
My mother and dad were big animal lovers, too. I just don’t know how I would have lived without animals around me. I’m fascinated by them – both domestic pets and the wild community. They just are the most interesting things in the world to me, and it’s made such a difference in my lifetime.
The wagering thing for a lawyer is very interesting. Will there be mobile sports wagering? Will there be mobile prop betting? Conceivably, someone sitting in basketball area placing prop bets on a mobile phone while the individual is 10 feet from the court? Some of the possibilities are angst-producing.
When I am putting looks together, I dare myself to make something work. I always look for the most interesting silhouette or something that’s a little off, but I have to figure it out. I have to make it me. I think that’s the thrill in fashion.
