Can’t step from one movie set to the next. Only Samuel L. Jackson can do that. All us mere mortals can’t do that!
Ice Cube
I don’t wish I started later, but I was never a child star. I was in school every year and had normal friends and I loved it and here I am, so I can’t say that I wish I hadn’t done it. I used to say, ‘No, I didn’t miss any of my childhood,’ but it is a very adult place to be, a movie set. Like, it’s a little weird.
Helen Hunt
I think, probably, the place that I feel I most belong is a movie set. It doesn’t matter where it is in the world or who I’m making the movie with; that’s the closest thing that I’ve got to a sense of placement. So I guess acting was a way of finding a home, if that makes sense.
Anya Taylor-Joy
On a movie set, there’s so much down time, adjusting the lighting. It gave me time to nap, call my friends, relax, work out. But with TV, there’s no break time. None.

Caterina Scorsone

Gene Tierney
I think people are used to seeing actors be wide open and desperately giving of themselves, and while I do that on a movie set as much as I can, it’s so unnatural for me to do it on television, in interviews, in anything like that. I also don’t find that my process as an actor is really anyone else’s business.
Kristen Stewart
