Acting is merely the art of keeping a large group of people from coughing.
Acting is not being emotional, but being able to express emotion.
Acting is all about honesty. If you can fake that, you've got it made.
Being a celebrity has taught me to hide, but being an actor has opened my soul.
Empathy is at the heart of the actor's art.
There's a rule in acting called, "Don't play the result." If you have a character who's going to end up in a certain place, don't play that until you get there. Play each scene and each beat as it comes. And that's what you do in life: You don't play the result.
I enjoy being a highly overpaid actor.
