Ten best acting quotes for aspiring actors
10. Robert De Niro
When you read, the only thing you have is your uniqueness. Don’t be afraid to follow your instincts about what you think the character is doing. Just go with it, because if nothing else, the people watching you, the director, the casting people, whatever, will be impressed by what you’ve done and they’ll take notice. You have to try and be courageous.
9. Tom Hardy
Anything you do on stage or film has a direct relation to something you have experienced in one form or another in real life. Use your imagination to exaggerate or lessen that sensation. Then, disguise it in characterization and don’t forget to make lots and lots of mistakes, and look like a complete asshole. You’ll do fine
8. Edward Norton
It really is about getting you to listen. I would put that very high on the list of things that good actors do
7. Harrison Ford
All I would tell people is to hold onto what is individual about themselves, not to allow their ambition for success to cause them to try to imitate the success of others. You’ve got to find it on your own terms
6. Vincent Cassell
I have learned that acting is not about beauty… in real life, I don’t know any good guys. I know okay guys. I know polite guys. I know people who can control themselves.
5. Lupita Nyong’o
“Every single role brings with it ignorance and insecurity, and so you have to approach it with the same curiosity and humility.”
4. Meryl Streep
Acting is not about being different. It’s finding the similarity in what is different, then finding myself in there.
3. Michael Fassbender
You have to keep in your head: what’s the worst that can happen? I’m trying to tell a story – what’s the worst that can happen? You fall flat on your face, then hopefully you get back up again and go for it again and try something else. We’re all going to die one day.
2. Jimmy Fallon
There’s always going to be someone out there… who doesn’t believe in you or who thinks your head is too big or you’re not smart enough. But those are the people you need to ignore, and those are the times you need to keep doing what you love doing.
1. Natalie Portman
Ninety percent of how you learn is watching great people. When good actors surround you, it lifts your performance.
