Words matter. These are the best Kathryn Hahn Quotes, and they’re great for sharing with your friends.
I have two young kids. So my VCR, like, you kind of have to sift through a lot of, like, ‘Animal Mechanicals,’ ‘Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.’
I’ve been pretending to be normal for so much of my life.
There was something about the Cleveland Play House that was the holiest place – you know, with the ghost light on the stage and the brick. It was just the most beautiful theater in the world.
I love Viggo Mortensen so much.
I’ve always been a fan of horror because I feel like it is one of the last genres where you need to see at a theatre, sharing in this profound experience of seeing it with a community of people.
I live a pretty normal life.
I think I was always a drama queen. I really, really, really loved playing pretend.
I loved doing ‘Bad Moms.’ I loved doing ‘We’re the Millers.’ But now that I’ve tasted complexity, it doesn’t matter what the genre is – it would be really hard to go back.
There is a lot of kissing in ‘Boeing-Boeing.’ A lot! And not pecks on the cheek or lips – although there’s some of that, too – but full-on, farcical lip locks. My poor husband. He definitely wasn’t prepared for as much smooching as there is.
I want to do a safari.
I was on vacation with my family when I got the scripts for ‘Wanderlust’ and I was trying to work on the audition while I was on vacation. I remember a big gust of wind blew the entire script into the pool, so I had to dry it with a hairdryer.
It really is a biological bummer that a woman’s chief moneymaking years align with her most fertile. It sucks. I wish that there was some way you could invert it.
I’m such a grandma. I don’t tweet; I don’t have a Facebook page.
And then ‘Wanderlust,’ Ken Marino and David Wain wrote the funniest – they’re amazing. That was one of my most favorite creative experiences; we’re all up at that commune, a small group of people. Everyone was funnier than the next. It was an amazing ensemble feeling. Everyone gave and took in the best way.
I think I was always the class clown.
I went to Catholic school for the cheapest private education.
I don’t want to ever say to somebody, ‘You don’t have to see it. It’s not good.’ I’m done with that. I’d love to just do things that I respect. That being said, I do have two children to put through school, so we’ll see if I can put my money where my mouth is, but I would love to just work with people I respect.
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.
A lot of actors are like, ‘Why do I do this? My character wouldn’t do this? This doesn’t make sense.’ And in a comedy, you kind of just need to walk into the door.
It is no small thing that the juiciest and most complicated roles of my life have come post-having two children.
I’m always in awe of improvisers that make something out of complete nothing.
As an actor, you know, I love not being pigeonholed, which is great. No one really knows who I am. So that’s a positive.
Being a parent is beautiful chaos and not at all like how you imagine.
I feel like there is something about having a copacetic world POV that helps in making a comedy. Like, David Wain has such a particular way of looking at the world. It helps when everyone can see behind his eyes, you know?
I’m not good with decisions.
I wish when I was 17, somebody had told me not to care so much about what other people had thought.
Working, I can be my truest self. I don’t know how healthy that is.
Honestly, I think I was in kindergarten. I remember seeing a play and realizing that was what I wanted to do. I remember always wanting to retreat to my room or somewhere private to play pretend by myself.
I went to Catholic school growing up. I can barely remember any prayers or anything!
I feel grateful that the person I end up working with a lot is Paul Rudd. He’s a prince among men, and so talented, and generous, and effortless.
I’m always blown away by stand-ups. I’m blown away by people like that who are craftspeople at comedy.
I was a theater nerd.
As a mother, I’ve seen a lot of animated movies, and, I’ve got to say, there’s so much crap out there for children.
Even the shows or movies that we know are not going to change the world, I love this. I love ’em. I’m a movie fan. I’m a nerd of any kind. I love a big studio comedy as much as I love the teeniest tiniest of indie. I’m not a snob in that way. I really do like a big, big studio comedy.
I’m really proud of ‘Private Life.’ It’s about a marriage and a couple on the hunt to make a family by any means necessary. They’re on such an obsessive quest that, after awhile, you forget that it’s even for a baby. It fits right in that middle pocket of being a comedy and a drama.
