#Quote
1 It isn't just the Academy Awards. The entire American system is rife with white privilege racism. It goes into our justice system. [2016]
2 [on Foxcatcher (2014)] Shakespeare does a great job of taking 5,000-year-old stories and turning them into modern pieces that are true to the original essence, but are completely remade. And that's how this feels. It's a true story but it's lifted up into the eternal, the universal.
3 When you're a young actor and you're really fighting to have your place in the world - for me anyway - it took a mental focus and energy and striving. It took a long time. And it was my whole life.
4 My thinking at the time was, "Aren't we at the place in our culture where a gay man should be playing this part?" And Ryan Murphy said, "That's the antithesis of what this movie is about. It doesn't matter what your sexual preference is. It matters what actor I think should play this part."
5 [on the Obama administration issuing new rules for water and air pollution at fracking sites, as well as pushing for more disclosure of the chemicals in fracking fluids, 2012] I like where he is going. Overall, we now have a president who is willing to talk about renewable energy, which is a very good thing. As for fracking, President Obama says we should move forward with it if it doesn't destroy our water and air. And that really is the key question. It has yet to be proven that we can frack without destroying our water and air. If it can be done, why aren't they doing it? ... We're clearly coming to the end of the fossil fuel era. We have the technology to shift to renewable energy, we have the will of the people. The only thing that's keeping us back is the fossil fuel industry's hold on our political system. That's what we need to change. And that's why we're looking to Gov. Cuomo. He did the right thing on gay marriage, and we're proud of him for that. Now he has the chance to do the right thing again with hydrofracking.
6 If you're not yelling at your kids then you're not spending enough time with them!
7 (2011, on his early struggling actor days) It was brutal. The years are stripping away, but when you're talking to anyone from home, you're saying something like, 'Well, I'm just working on my craft right now,' when the truth is that I can't get a fucking job because no one will hire me. It was humiliating.
8 (2011, on moving out of L.A.) I'd had it with L.A., and I'd really had it with the business side of acting, the machinery of it all. You're an artist, but then all of a sudden you're a product at the same time, and there's this company that's sprung up around you. I got depressed. I was losing my love for it. So I said, 'I'm done.' I fired everybody and moved my family out here (to Callicoon, New York). I had to make a radical move.
9 [on favorite performances that he's given or films that he's done] - Every five years or so, there's some great thing that I'm really proud of, an experience that I'm really proud of. I stopped long ago putting too much emphasis on the results of how a film was going to be reviewed or what kind of money it makes. Those are important things, but as far as to my satisfaction, I've really focused on the experiences. The Kids Are All Right (2010) is a special one; My Life Without Me (2003); In the Cut (2003). What Doesn't Kill You (2008) is a really great movie that was little seen, but I think is one of my personal favorites. You Can Count on Me (2000), of course, and probably Zodiac (2007). Those are my top picks, as far as things that I've done. Another one, We Don't Live Here Anymore (2004). Not the most beloved of movies, or widely known, but they're the ones I've had a good time making.
10 [on navigating his career] - I try to do the things that speak to me in one way or another, and sometimes I'm even drastic. I like extremes. I like to change things up and keep from getting complacent or stale. I moved away from L.A. [to upstate New York] because it was feeling empty and it didn't feel like Los Angeles was a fertile place for me as an artist anymore. I didn't like the distance between my family and myself that I was experiencing from having to work all the time. I let my heart sort of guide me on that, and I turned out okay. It was a bit of a gamble, but it's turned out pretty good. But mostly it's just trying to keep it fresh and new and exciting for me and hopefully for everyone else.
11 I love acting with kids, cause they're great acting partners. They're totally present. Even when they're acting, they're still available and you can crack them up or something weird will happen and they'll go with it. You can throw them little curve-balls and they'll go with it. I always like having kid energy around. I think it's good for a movie, even when you're doing dramatic stuff.
12 I want to do a western. Nobody does westerns anymore.
13 "I don't like this idea of Method. I come from that school, but what I was taught was that it's your imagination. You do your homework, and you use your imagination. People use the Method as a shield; it shields them from being vulnerable. I hear all these young actors who are like, 'I'm Method, I'm gonna go live in the house, you know, I totally get it, I've done it, I've been there', but one thing I know is it kills spontaneity. They'll still give great performances, but they're not playing with the other actors - it's all about them. And spontaneity and vulnerability are gold on screen and on stage - they are the fucking magic. When Brando reaches down and picks up that glove and puts it on his hand, that is magic. You can't plan that." (He is referring to a scene in On the Waterfront (1954): Eva Marie Saint accidentally dropped a glove on set and, rather than wait for another take, Marlon Brando picked it up and put it on, without missing a line.)
14 Certainly, it's very easy to fall in love with cash. If you're going to make all your decisions based on cash, you're going to have a pretty naffy career.
15 The whole experience of getting close to mortality changed my perspective on work. I wasn't enjoying acting before: I felt like I wasn't in charge of my career. I wasn't doing things that made me feel good. I was really bitter, I thought I deserved more, and I wasn't grateful for all the great shit that had happened to me. If you're not grateful, then it's very easy to be an asshole. After the brain tumor happened, I realized I love acting, I've always loved it, I may never get a chance to do it again.
16 The true value of somebody in this town [Hollywood] is very hard to determine. It's all smoke and mirrors.
17 For some reason, my whole life has been, 'You can't do this, you can't do that.' The other day I was watching these kids crossing the road, and they have these crossing guards, kids who help other kids across the road. They would never let me be a crossing guard when I was a little kid . It would come up, I'd always raise my hand, I would never get picked . They thought I was too wild, but I knew I was responsible enough, if I was given that task.
18 With indies, all they have is their script and it's very important to them. The characters are better drawn, the stories more precise and the experience greater than with studio films where sometimes they fill in the script as they're shooting.
