ACTORS ON ACTING

“I’m here under false pretences. My achievement, if you can call it that, is that I’ve basically pretended to be extraordinary people my entire life, and now I’m being mistaken for one.” Meryl Streep

“Ninety percent of how you learn is watching great people. When you are surrounded by good actors it lifts your performance.” Natalie Portman

“Dreaming about being an actress is more exciting than being one.” Marilyn Monroe

“It takes courage to make a fool of yourself.” Charlie Chaplin

“Every actor has to make terrible films from time to time, but the trick is never to be terrible in them.” Ingrid Bergman

“You are always hoping that movie audiences are interested in characters and interested in story values rather than just mindless special effects. But you never know.” Clint Eastwood

“Acting, and the privilege of being able to do it for a living, is so important to me. I don’t turn up and just hope for the best. I really fret about it. I do my homework; I prepare myself for the experience of playing a particular character.” Kate Winslet
